Hello everyone, Im a very new in shotgun game. This is my first upper/under shotgun in my life. Im comparing to Baretta 686 SP1(the new pattern engraved design) and 693.

You can’t go wrong with either in terms of longevity and performance. I haven’t seen the 693 in person but am guessing it will be prettier than the 686 and maybe a bit more substantial. Make sure to choose the sub-model suited to your intended use: field /hunting or sport games. And which game? Trap, Skeet, Sporting Clays. It helps to have the gun most suited to the intended use. The 686 can be had in either field or sporting versions. I can only find a field
version online for the 693. You may know differently.

From a function standpoint, both will be great. However, the 693 is a "prettier" shotgun. It has better engraving and much better wood.

So if you're just looking for a gun that will function perfectly and last for a lifetime, either will be great. If you want something to show off a little, then the 693 is the one.

Thank you very much for your advises. Im very appreciate.

I believed that the 693 was developed from 692. I learned from the past posts that 692 had some problems with the top tang srew and bolt. Is these problem solved in 693?

Thank you again.

My understanding is that it was resolved. I own the 693 in 20 gauge, and the only issue I've had is it didn't like to eject some cheap Federal Wal-Mart ammo.

It might be worth contacting either Beretta directly, or Coles Gunsmithing to ask if that issue has been resolved.
