    I currently have a 30" 682 Gold E Sporting and I'm contemplating getting a 34" Top mono single bbl and adding an adjustable comb for shooting trap. I know that I will need to have the new (used) bbl fitted and the timing set. But can someone tell me if the replacement bbl will just "drop-in" to the forend I have, or will that need to be fitted also?

    Thanks,
    YB

    I think the correct answer is "maybe".

    Usually, the barrel will fit on the hinge pins and require fitting on the for-end, but not always. I've seen them fit right on, but it is best to have it checked by a competent person. I've never seen a top single without a step rib, so you will need to raise the comb to see over the back of the rib. Bill Malcolm

    Thanks Guys.

    Considering the amount of drop on the Sporting stock, do you think there would be any problem getting the adjustable comb to raise up high enough to see above the step rib?

    Thanks,

    Depends on the hight of the step, but you just get higher posts. Bill Malcolm

    I bought a top single trap barrel for my 687EELL, and the new barrel needed fitting to the point the underlug needed a bit of welding build up. As for the comb, I took it to my gunsmith, and he said there was not enough wood above the stock bolt screw to install an adjustable comb. I ended up using a velcro attached comb adjuster, where you use as many little inserts as needed. It works, but to the eye, it is about as pleasing as polishing a turd.

    I put an adjustable comb trap stock on my 682 Gold e sporting. Haven't tried it out yet but I suspect it will shoot high.
