Beretta 687 EELL Classic

Beretta 687 EELL Classic

I first got my hands on this delightful custom Beretta in the April 2015 issue of Shooting Gazette. On first look the differences are purely aesthetic: the Classic we tested last year had fully scroll-engraved side plates, but this month’s gun is engraved with game scene vignettes. And despite almost identical specifications between the two guns, one small difference ticked on the…

The Beretta 680 series has been around since 1984 and it’s still enjoyed by many of us today. So, this newly updated 687 EELL model, with scroll engraving, has undoubtedly got a serious history of previous EELL’s to compete against.

Gunmakers are often criticised for attempting to reinvent the wheel with each of their new releases, each increase in model number hiding a tiny change in designs which have been around for over 100 years. Beretta’s SV10 was something of a departure on its release five years ago, by virtue of being a wholly new gun. Browning has since followed…

Popular second-hand semi-autos

Beretta ES100 Forty years ago, a semi-auto was a cheap gun, selling for a few hundred pounds. Then, as the guns became more mechanically complex, prices crept up until a “semi” sold for as much as a fairly good over-and-under. Prices seemed to be locked into an upward spiral until budget-…
