The 692 is solely a competition model based on the modern 690 action. At its core it has three key features; Steelium Plus Barrels, a mid-weight receiver and the inclusion of the Beretta B FAST system. Stellium plus barrels have a conic length of 360mm. This more gradually decreasing bore section makes for much smoother pressure dynamics inside the barrel leading to less recoil, muzzle flip and better patterning. The wider action of the 692 (compared to the 680 action) puts more weight between the hands improving balance and leading to faster target acquisition. The B-FAST system allows you to customise the balance of your gun by inserting additional steel wads into the stock.
The 692 black is visually striking thanks to the matt black receiver and gold lettering. The carbon fibre rib further adds to the modern look and reduces barrel weight.
