    As I understand it, all the 686s are the same internally. Differences would be cosmetic, ingraving and wood quality, and also possible stock dimensions, depending on what model you are looking at. I have a 686 Silver Pigeon, 28" barrels, and have shot skeet and 5 Stand with it. It is a light, lively, quality gun. Mark

    Thw White Onyx is a lower grade of that model. I have a 686 Silver Pigeon 26" that has become a favorite field gun. This model certainly isn't a trap gun as it is way too light (recoil) and shoots flat. A longer barrel 686 might be okay for SC. Either model you mentioned will perform the same - just cosmetic differences.

    I have a Special Silver pigeon in the 20ga. and 28ga. combo. Really sweet for pheasant hunting. The 28 is my favorite gun ever over one of my pointers.
