    He is right there is no contest & the SKB is better & it shoots where you want it to, unlike a Beretta....:)
    A new combo is also about $2800 & higher with fancy wood & AC.
    IMO the SKB is also a much softer shooter.
    I have both so I might know a tad about recoil.

    The 682 is a better gun. $4,500 is ok for a new combo, you can get a 95%(+) gun for about half of that. No reason why you should take the initial depreciation hit.

    I also have owned both. I am now shooting a new 85TSS w/upgrade wood.
    I liked the Beretta but, the SKB is waaaay more gun for the money.
    And I buy 'em to shoot,not to resell.

    You can have it for $1000.00 in twenty years, when I'm done with it.

    The Beretta 682 combo from Joe Etchen is right at that price you are wanting, sounds like thats where you are going to get it from.
    Actually its come down to what you like, what feels good & fits your body over any whats a better gun as we all have an opinion on brands, good bad or indifferent.
    Before buying try both out if you can, even if in a store and you cant shoot it, fit it 1st, then go from there and forget what we all say as it dont matter when a gun fits you its right.
    Resale may be higher on a Beretta, but who cares when you are going to keep it as long as SKB owners do, thats the thing and they dont shoot all over the place like many of the Berettas do even though youd think that any trap gun MFG could get it to shoot a lot better then within 6" of factory spec....:)

    An SKB will spend more time at the gunsmith than on the line!

    Then again some people bought Yugo's.

    JoeE1, No one will because they can't. The ones you do find are priced just like any B gun, so not much proof, but lots of myth floating around here.

    I had them both and both were fine guns - I just couldn't shoot the 682 worth beans. Traded it for another gun that I shoot much better. I like the adjustable rib on the 85tss - one more degree of freedom in adjustment.

    A friend has a 682 Gold E Combo that has real POI problems with the OU barrels - but that's his experience, not mine.
