That's an aftermarket recoil pad.

Field guns cost less than trap, skeet or sporting clays models.

QUOTE=warpspeed;737455]What does the box say There are a couple of different 686 versions but that looks like the "standard" one and it looks like a discontinued model. I have one just like it in 12 ga and I love it.

Value ? for sale or insurance ? $1500 - $ 1700 or so.[/QUOTE]

Beretta 686 White Onyx in 20ga. sells for $1600 brand new, or a little higher in CA. So, I would suspect that your Onyx (in good to excellent condition) will go for around $1200. If there is visible wear and such, but the monoblock fit to the receiver is tight, expect slightly less than $1000.

You should expect to lose money on upgrades like sight changes, adjustable buttstock pads, etc. People prefer to buy stock and not deal with cut/shortened buttstocks and such. If you have other upgrades such as premium chokes, tubes, and combo barrels, you can expect to recoup some of that investment.

BTW, your Onyx is not a trap gun, and not really that great for sport clays either. It would be best suited for skeet and upland hunting, imo. 20ga is a great cartridge for those getting into skeet. You can load it easily from 7/8oz to 11/16oz. I use a handload of 3/4oz with Alliant's Promo which is great for the skeet field - breaks clays well and soft recoil.

The pictures finally displayed for me. It looks like more like a Onyx Pro but I cannot make out the model number on the box. The Onyx line is Beretta's entry level O/U. Keep in mind, though, that Beretta's entry level is a fine shotgun and far exceed's Mossberg's best O/U.

Where did you get it?
