When I was picking my just ordered shotgun, I looked in vain for authoritative "numbers" re: the Beretta guns. Beretta just doesn't show the drops, LOPs, etc. Why is one question. Where to actually find them is another. 687 SPIII is my particular interest.

Agree; I was looking at their site again the other day...very minimal information.
Browning does a great job with specs.

SPECIFICATIONS:
ACTION: Improved Box Lock Low Profile
GAUGE: 12
CHAMBER: 3"
WOOD FINISH: Oil
STOCK/FORE-END: Select Walnut - Checkered
STOCK DROP - COMB: 15/16"
STOCK DROP - HEEL: 23/8"
Last I looked the trigger is adjustable to max 14 3/4 length of pull. Remember US and Euro guns will have different dimensions. Or you could simply call Joel Etchen if you are talking about your purchase.

Mr Yildiz is now Mr Beretta?

Thanks. I saw those same numbers somewhere and was confused. Now I realize it isn’t 15/16 inch and 23/8 inch, it is 1 5/16 inch and 2 3/16 inch. Not having those spaces totally threw me. Thanks for the help.

Don't be surprised if the DAC is 1-1/2 inches and DAH is 2-3/8 inches - American.
Don't be surprised if the DAC is 1-3/8 inches and DAH is 2-3/16 inches - Everyone else.

It isn’t about being surprised. It is about knowing. The numbers you quote have shown up in some references. As have just about everything else. No agreement among resources.

Call them tomorrow and have them measure the one you decide on and have them call you back when they have them .

Sure. It’s just weird that Beretta wants to sell shotguns and refuses to tell you what they are selling.

Well, I finalized the order this morning and inquired about the drop numbers. These sound like what I have heard before, DAC = 1.5", DAH = 2.25". That is great news as my mounting technique is adjusted for the 1.5" DAC on my Yildiz.

That's a lot better than the 1.31" inches mentioned above by It0026. In fairness I have seen those numbers he quoted elsewhere. I think Etchen has these Signature guns built to his own specs so that the confusion is understandable. Thanks to It0026 and seb7515 for the input.

The DAH is a little low (by 0.13") compared to my Yildiz and seb7515's prediction, but I have to have an adjustable butt plate added by Briley anyway, so it is negligible. FFL has already made contact with Etchen, and the gun is almost ready to go. Am I excited or what? I have my cardiologist on call just in case it all becomes too much for me. :wink:
