What is a Cole Special?

As a Beretta master gunsmith and craftsman, periodically Rich Cole partners with Beretta to design special production runs of 680 series shotguns with many special features. These “Specials” are available only to our customers. These guns represent outstanding quality and value in an upgraded sporting gun which is a privilege to own and shoot.

Our latest Cole Specials have options for a variety of shooters. They are 12 gauge with either 30” or 32” barrels. They are available in two stock styles, either with a parallel (slightly higher comb) stock or a traditional sporting stock in beautiful grade 3 or 4 walnut. These stocks are finished in traditional hand- rubbed oil or enhanced Timberluxe finish. A palm-swell grip is also featured for the right handed shooter.

These upgraded guns come with a polished blue receiver and Beretta’s state-of-the-art Optima HP barrels and choke tubes designed for lower recoil and improved pattern performance. A custom, leather- trimmed Italian-made Negrini case is also included and complements this fine shotgun.

 Additional options include a case color hardened receiver or customers can select an engraved action, hand- engraved in the studio of one of Italy’s master engraver’s, Stefano Pedretti. Call to order your custom engraving or to request photos of the different guns not yet on our website!
