Is the stock weight fixed in place or adjustable to allow for some adjustment in gun balance?

The stock weights are held in by a phillips head rod that threads into the stock. The beretta weights are labeled with their respective weights. Simply unscrew the rod that holds the weights from the stock, add or remove weights as desired, and reinstall. A small dab of BLUE locate will help ensure that the rod will not vibrate loose over time.

Outside of adding or removing weight, there is really no additional adjustment for the stock weights.

Appreciate the description of the set up. Been considering purchasing a 694 since this time last year. All kinds of things have slowed my process down but pretty sure I will make the jump and buy one. Have handled a couple and do like a lot about the gun

Here is more info with a graphic that shows how and where the weights mount.

Ok thanks
So those who says the 694 is to light for a
Clay gun read above post .

Also you can get magnetic weights
For under forearm ,
LOL

With appropriate load weights and velocities like 1 oz at 1200 fps a 12 ga O/U weighing 7 lb 12 oz or more is plenty heavy enough for shooting 200-300 clays a day. You can haul around 9 lb if you want, but I won’t be joining you. Right now I am very comfortably at 8 lb.

Gun weight is more than just recoil reduction.

I don’t doubt it, but that doesn’t mean more is better. It just means there is a best weight for a gun and shooter combination. It might be lighter; it might be heavier.

Yes, I understand that belief. And I won’t argue with it. But considering how many people are in already in pain right now, not just later, then being comfortable in the present can’t be a bad thing. It is all relative, no? Less may not be quite as good as least, but surely it is better than more.

Somewhat true, but felt recoil effects are cumulative.

I accept that with the proviso that the rate and level of accumulation is more or less proportional to the instantaneous recoil abuse of the body. So lower present felt recoil, lower eventual cumulative effects. I think you are saying the same thing. Otherwise there would be no point in recommending lower recoil now to prevent cumulative damage later. The difference in our positions is that you seem to advocate the lowest possible present felt recoil, while I am saying don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the very good. There are other considerations to gun weight besides felt recoil such as exhaustion toward the end of a round from carrying a really heavy gun. As in all things, compromise and moderation make the most sense to me.

??????? Hmmmm what does it all mean. You must be a 90% shooter w a PHD in physics.

Had a 725 32” sporting now a 694 32” I like the 694 better but don’t shoot it better ?
Ya get the B fast. I have a none adjustable comb and had it converted.
It’s fine but I would do the B fast next time .
694 is built better but nothing wrong with the 725 .

I have a reasonably new 694 that I have put maybe 2,000 rounds through. There is nothing about the gun that I don't like. I bought it because the DAC and DAH were spot on for me without the B Fast comb. Full disclosure, I am a Beretta fan with 4 others in my gun safe,
