The Beretta Silver Pigeon is a double-barreled shotgun. It is an "over and under" gun, with one barrel above the other. It is most often used for hunting birds and for clay target games such as trap and skeet. There are several models in field and sporting, for example 682, 686, and 687, with different features and finishes, and in various gauges.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

The Silver Pigeon is manufactured, marketed, and distributed by Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta, in Gardone Val Trompia, Italy.

The Silver Pigeon was also produced for a short period as a pump shotgun, called the Silver Pigeon SL 2.[8]
