    I am looking at a pretty good deal on Beretta 686 combo. It has the X trap 30" O/U barrel with adjustabke chokes and 34" unsingle full fixed choke barrel. Also has a 4 way adjustable comb and an adjustable 4 way adjustable butt plate. What are the pros and cons of this gun? and what would be a good price? Thanks for ny help and comments.

    If you are shooting from the 24-27 yard post the fixed full choke would be good, but from the 16 to the 18 you might find more success with LM or M.

    Brandon,
    I don't think you can go wrong with Beretta. The 686 receiver is a very good platform that if taken care of will last you a long, long time. If you pick it up for a steal then you could always shoot it for awhile and if you don't like it - unload it and maybe make some money.

    Has anybody ever heard of the 686? I thought there would be more opinions on this gun. I know its very similar to the 682. The gun is about 10-15 years old and looks to be shot very little. Can anybody tell me the difference between the 686 and the 682? Any help, comments, or just a post to say hi is greatly appreciated.
