well I shot league today not well but neither did my teammates or opponents.
Cold 20 degrees 16mph winds Snow squalls. To many layers of clothes .Station 4 before I figured I need to move the gun faster.

Honestly this gun feels like a 725sporter which I like . ( traded up for )
Its better built IMO .

Off and running. Will look forward to more updates as you get out with the gun. Plan to get on the list with Cole’s for the next 32 inch gun that comes into the Maine location with the hope of having it in February.

I'm curious, why the wait from Beretta? I would have thought Cole's would have them on hand.

I think Beretta is trying to get inventory to all distributors that want them. The Coles location here in Maine had a couple in December when I stopped to see them but are currently out of stock. My preference is to see the gun I buy in person before I make the purchase.

Am not in a major rush so can just wait until a 32 inch gun arrives in harpswell and stop in to see it.

Could you let us know what differences, and similarities there are between those two guns. Currently shooting a 725 too, just not sure what "upgrade" I'd be getting with a 694

Only shot one round (50) same recoil about same Weight maybe a tad heavier.
To me same balance same rib view . No porting , firing pins hit harder using snap caps , comes with a real nice case . Chokes true to size measuring with a caliper.
Browning DS we’re not at least on mine. One trigger the 725 Had 3 . 694 came with two different size recoil pads . 725 had nice wood but soft .

Is it is it worth the upgrade probably not . With 6% sales tax it cost me $2,400
And the 725 have a adjustable comb the 694 does not.

That said the 694 is a better gun and comes with a nice case.

You should look at one first . I wanted a new gun . But the 725 is a Great gun.

I am considering this gun for my new clays gun this year. It seems like they are still too few out there in hands to really get a good read on how it performs and compares to the other already existing options in its class.

I’ve visited the gallery in Dallas a few times and they can’t keep them in long enough for me to get a look.
