    question
    ---------

    Someone at my gunclub is looking to sell a Beretta 680 30" o/u F/IM fixed chokes in good/very-good condition. Can someone please tell me what an approx value for this gun might be (I dont have access to a BLUE BOOK OF GUN VALUES - if someone can read the values from that book that would be great).

    Thanks.

    I checked the typical selling sites, and don't see one for sale at the moment. It is an older Beretta. I bought a BL-4 for $600. I would think those would be reasonable prices, if that is the gun you want. Mark

    The blue book really baffles me at times. The differences between a 680 and a 682 are fairly minimal - probably non-existant in terms of quality. The Gold E's have some added features - Optima bbls, and a hammer block - but thats about it. Why in the world is a mint condition 680 not worth 70-80% of the value of a NIB Gold E?

    I will buy all the 100% 680's you can come up with for $900.

    The only significant difference between a 980 and older 682; 682 has trigger adjustable for length of pull, the side ribs on 680 barrels are not ventilated, and the ribs are lower on the 680.

    From Cole Gunsmithing....."The "heavy frame" action was the original 680, which was designed to meet the rigors of competitive clay target shooting.Its side to side measurement is 1.585" (measured across the recoil shoulders of the barrels). The "light frame was a thinner field style frame which measures 1.525" There is no way to determine which style frame a gun is by model; all models were made in both frame styles. Please note that this dimensional difference is EXTERNAL and does not affect the use of different barrel sets or wood.".......my 680 follows........

    Look at a 680 next to a newer gun the engraving the checkering on the safty. 680's were of higher quality. I sold my 682's great guns to buy a EELL combo but kept my 680. I prefer a 680 over the 682's of equel condition and can be purchased for less. IMHO (less is more)a real nice 680 is worth more than what the Blue book calls for. It is only a guide there are lots of guns in the blue book I would like to buy at quoted value and others that I would not give 1/2 the value quoted. To upgrade from a 680 you need to go to a ASE 90 or DT gun bang for the buck a 680 is a no brainer for a good condition gun.


    Buddy hope this helps in making a informed decision

    PS you can get extra barrels even Optima barrels for a 680

    I wouldn't sell my old 680 with 34" 682 unsingle for less than $1500. They are better looking than a 682. It should bring no less than a similar 682. $1200-1700+ depending on condition and barrel type. 680's have a flat rib. 682 has a step rib. With prices of new models being as high as they are, I wouldn't be surprised if older models increase in value. A couple years ago I sold a flat shooting 682 with 32" O/U barrel for $1200.
