Looking to purchase my first O/U with B-Fast and adjustable comb. Which one would you choose and why ? 694 is MSRP $4850 and 692 is MSRP $5750. I know I can get a 694 at $500 off and a 692 at $1000 off. Lately I have been shooting Sporting Clays/Skeet. I have a Benelli Super Black Eagle for Hunting Birds.

The 694 is the improved version of the 692.
Here is the video Rich Cole made that's really in depth between the two.

I have the B-Fast Adjustable comb model. You can get one for $3700-$4000.

The 692 is hideously overpriced and for most of it's life suffered with irritating flaws. Despite Rich Cole's excellent video, in truth the 694 only has minor generic changes. What it does offer is a return to typical Beretta reliability and more sensible pricing.

If Berettas are your thing the 694 strikes me as much the better choice.

Although most of the changes made to the 694 were minor, they addressed some major issues from the 692 such as the ejectors. The 694 is an improved gun.

694 has significantly fuller feeling stock. much closer to a DT. To me there is no comparison.

Thank you all for responding. Here is my real time issue the 692 is NIB manuf 2019 Black edition with B-Fast and adjustable comb that I can have next week from an online retailer. Brick and mortar store in my area will sell me the 694 with same B-Fast and adjustable comb for exactly $223 more but I will not get it till mid November. I guess I am going to go with the 694 because my thoughts were if I hated the Gun I can always resale it for more than 692.( I am getting a smoking great deal on the 694.) Is that correct?

You will take a loss on any new gun if you resell it. If you don't like the 694 you probably wouldn't have liked the 692. You will likely get more for the 694, but the difference isn't going to make a dent in the loss. Don't worry about it.

Check the stock for loosening up the first few times after you shoot it .
Mine came loose after 100 rounds . Retighten its been good ever sense.

I had the chance to fondle a new 694, as I own a 692 and to me the only different is the palm swell is very large compared to the 692, the stock is fatter overall as well, balance felt the same, a bone stock 692 will balance right at the hinge pin as it's balanced already from the factory, although with the 694 you can obviously adjust that with the weight kit.........is that something that you need as a shooter? that's your call.

Nice gun overall, the blue is sharp, and enjoy it!!!!! as mentioned check the stock bolt, my 692 stock bolt didn't come loose like some are mentioning about the 694 but it's a good thing to check it!

Enjoy and shoot it well!!!!!

Isn’t that the best when you get a new toy sooner than expected. Lucky you, enjoy smokin’ ‘em.

I had the same thing when I bought my 692, I bought it through an employee program and Beretta said 3 months at the soonest, I got a call 2 weeks later........"gun is in". Great feeling, get some pictures up of that thing! Some of the wood I have seen on the stock 694's has been pretty dark, very DT10ish.

I’ve had a 692 for several months that needed an adjustable comb. Passed on 694 because of the palm swell. Just investing in some parts and annual preventive maintenance for the known issues. Otherwise it’s a fantastic fun, far superior to silver pigeon as a target gun IMHO
