Designed and tested in collaboration with the Beretta Shooting Team, 694 is the new over-and-under platform designed specifically for competition shooting, with a precise objective in mind: to help shooters increase their success rate. Thanks to a meticulous mechanical and ergonomic design process, the 694 represents a perfectly balanced over-and-under competition shotgun. Natural and immediate when shouldering, it features a precise swing and it’s easy to control. The new shape of the action and the stock provide increased field of vision, while the new forend iron system allows the user to maintain the opening load constant over time, and the Steelium Plus barrels guarantee a dense, uniform pattern every time. The slim, modern design lends the 694 a "racing" feel, for a bold, winning look.

The slim, modern design lends the 694 a "racing" feel, for a bold, winning look.
The ergonomics of the stock has been completely redesigned to provide the ideal configuration for every discipline. The first new feature is the way the action is bedded into the stock, where the profile of the action is accompanied by two progressive grooves, thus reducing the presence of obstacles in the field of view when shouldering the gun: this important development helps the shooter to avoid having to raise his/her head from the line of sight, a movement that often results in a "zero".
The 1.5 pitch checkering and increased surface area guarantee the best possible grip. The 2.5 + grade wooden components are treated with natural oil, for increased water resistance. It is possible to add 20g and 40g weights inside the stock to personalise the weapon's balance (these may be purchased separately). The new steel forend iron system improves the sensation when opening the gun, thanks to the redesigned geometry and the journal, which is fitted with a replaceable latch that may be substituted by any authorized gunsmith in order to maintain the owner's preferred loading configuration. The forend coupling system has also been redesigned and now consists of a piston-operated stud in an advanced position, separate from the forend iron, and a self-regulating auget button.
The advantages are:
• More dense and uniform patterns with very high penetration and target hitting performance
• Quicker and more accurate second shot
• Reduction in perceived muzzle jump
The 694 is already perfectly balanced when it leaves the factory, but more demanding shooters may use the optional B-Fast Balancing System to customise the configuration to suit their needs. The 694 barrels are designed to accommodate a system of 15, 10 and 5g weights that can be positioned in the five available slots in the muzzle and under the forend (the weights may be purchased separately).
Thanks to the fitting system on the lateral rib openings, the weight is distributed along the whole length of the barrel, improving the weapon's swing and reducing muzzle jump but without causing any noise or vibrations during the shot. In addition, their design has been developed to perfectly fit the lateral ribs ensuring there is no risk of them being lost or visibility being impeded. The B-Fast stocks are also designed to accommodate a series of 20 and 40g weights, which may be purchased separately.
The 694 is supplied with:
- ABS Case
- Stock wrench
- Alternative 23mm MicroCore®pad
- Set of 5 OptimaHP chokes with wrench - for the sporting version only
- Two Beretta stickers, one of which is for the barrels
- User and maintenance manual
- In the case of the B-Fast version, the related accessory kit
