    The single barrel on my 682 combo has a .237" diameter by .144" deep hole in the monoblock where the lower firing pin would strike if there was a barrel/chamber there.
    Should this hole have something in it (brass? urethane?) to cushion the firing pin if it was inadvertantly triggered?

    Yes, originally there was a rubber plug in that hole to cushion the pin. They disappear quite quickly. I've had 2 682s and put alot of rounds through them with out the cushion and never had a problem with the pin. Bill

    Thanks, Bill. I'll get some polyurethane and fill that hole up....

    I put a nylon bolt in my 682. Not sure of the size, but, it turned in very tight. I filed it flush with the face of the block. Be very careful not to file into the face of the block. (by block, I mean the end of the barrel)


    Now, when I am done shooting for the day, I put a snap cap in the single barrel, snap it off, bump (very hard) on the recoil pad to shift the inertia block and snap the lower firring pin into the nylon insert.


    Been doing this for several months with any problems.

    Good luck.

    Doesn't the selector switch have a small threaded hole in it for a screw most of the singles I have seen have a selector lock in the top selector switch to prevent this from happening.

    It does, Bob. But, because I shoot both single/caps and doubles with the gun, that lockscrew has been removed.

    Beretta O/U's typically don't have firing pin problems.
