The strong, reliable, nickel-based finish receiver of the new 687 Silver Pigeon III Sporting is enhanced by nice game scene engravings. The 12 gauge barrels come with the exclusive Optima-Bore® internal profile with lengthened forcing cone that improves shot pattern distribution and reduces felt recoil. The Extended Optimachoke® tubes minimize shot deformation, enhance concentration and distribution of shot patterns. A wide competition rib and either a white target or a luminous front sight come standard. The 20 and 28 gauge versions mount barrels with Mobilchoke ® tubes. The stock and the Schnabel fore-end are cut from superior quality walnut, and built to withstand a lifetime of use and to guarantee a perfect balance and quick target acquisition. The fine checkering, and the embedded oval plate for initials, give this gun a touch of elegance. A gold single-selective trigger, a rubber recoil pad and a beautiful yet sturdy gun case complete the offer. On request the shotgun can be equipped with Truglo ® front sight and GeloTek recoil pad.
