While it's not exactly what you are looking for Joel Etchen has 687 SP III with EELL Wood Upgrade combo gun in 410/28 gauge. They are available as a Field gun with 28 inch barrels or Sporting models with 30 inch barrels. Following is a link

PS; I recently picked up the Sporting variant and feel it's the smartest firearms purchase I've ever made. Mine was a perfect fit out of the box and my scores have improved every single weekend since I purchased it. Only fault was they feature a matte finish and I prefer gloss. So I've been using True Oil on the stock and just finished going over the checkering with a checkering file to clean up the blackening from the Laser checkering.

I can also tell you that mine shoots like a dream.

I second scooter123's comments. I first bought the 687 SP3 20/28 combo game gun 28" set. I love it! I just use the 28ga bbl because I have the 693 in 20ga, also a game gun in 28". I recently added a 687 SP3 28/.410 combo, also a game gun in 28" bbl.

I'm sure the 687 V is a very nice gun but it's not my cup of tea. The checkering is the rounded, computer-generated, asymmetrical variety, as is the checkering on all of the 687s (I think) except the Joel Etchen signature sets. They have conventional checkering. It's funny how something so mundane as rounded checkering can turn me off on an entire series. I also prefer coin finished receivers sans fancy gold inlay on sub 5-6 figure guns. Beware of color hardened receivers as they are done chemically these days and will rub off, especially if you use certain cleaners and degreasers.
