The Grand Prize – Beretta 687 EELL Classic Deluxe Gallery Edition 28 Gauge

Valued at $11,500

The Beretta 687 EELL Classic Deluxe Gallery Edition is the top of the line of Beretta’s 680-series over-under shotguns.  The 28 gauge features sideplates that act as extra canvas for the lavish hand-chased engraving, as well as a specially-selected walnut stock that gives it a true heirloom quality.  This 28 gauge shotgun comes up naturally to the shoulder while still having enough of a lively feeling forward of the supporting hand.  It is an over-under with the feel and allure of a classic, for the discriminating hunter who appreciates all the finer points of a perfectly made gun.
