    The 686 is the "economy" version and the 687 is the "pretty" version of the same gun. There are a few differences like adjustable trigger for length of pull and replaceable barrel shoulders. They are usually marked on the bottom of the receiver as to which model the are. All parts are interchangeable with a few exceptions. Bill Malcolm

    the one I have is not marked anywhere, it is a silver piegon, made in Italy, ser# m18xx7b, it is a decent looking gun, have never owned any other beretta to compare. It dosen't have an adjustable trigger, what are replaceable barrel shoulders??

    thanks!

    I just found out it is a 686, the difference is if the engraving is scroll its a 686, if game scene it's a 687.

    thanks!

    Doesn't the 686 have replaceable hinge pins where the 687 does not?

    Jim,
    Correct me if I'm wrong (and I probably am) don't the 682 687 series have alignment tits that mate to dimples in the barrel face where as the cheaper 686 doesn't??

    Jim,

    Sounds as though you have a good handle on the 680 series and wondered if you could answer this. My friend has a 686 Silver Pigeon and I have one, His is a plain jane model and mine is much nicer to the eyes. Stock and forearm on mine are very pretty wood and my receiver is a brighter hue compared to his brushed finish. Did they come in different grades? When you see them in a gun rack you wouldn't guess that they are the same model. Thanks Jackie B.

    HI Jim,

    I just finished checking it out and it all worked very smooth. I could not feel any drag in the inertia block at all. It only took light force to move the block back and set the other trigger. I will wash it down really well and reassemble and see what it does. The kick suppressor has been in it the whole time so I wouldn't think that would have made a diffenence but we'll find out. I will get my torque wrench out and set it as suggested and insure that is not part of the problem. Thanks again for your help. Jackie B.
