    Just bought a new 682 e trap combo. The gun comes with inertia triggers. Some shooters have said to change them to mechanical. Is this a good idea or not? I do not know the advantage of mechanical triggers. Thanks Dale

    Mechanical triggers always set the second hammer. Inertia triggers work from recoil. This can be a problem if you shoot a really light load for the first shot of doubles and if you shoot the small sub-gauges. It is usually more of an issue for skeet shooters than trap shooters.

    My NEW 682 would not always set the trigger for the second shot at doubles. I shot a light 1 oz load at the time for first bird.So I switched to same 1 1/8 load for both birds.It seamed to improve after about a thousand rounds or so through the gun and I was able to go back to the original 1 oz load.

    The 682 triggers are basically mechanical with an inertia block that keeps the second shot from firing until it is set. It is quite easy to disable the inertia system and then it is pure mechanical.

    What will happen Dale is that the fragile ittle spring that powers the inertia lever will break after about 15K rounds and when that happens you have a single shot until you replace the spring.

    Spring replacement is not difficult but many owners are intimidated by performing this level of service. The part itself costs about $5. Having a pro install it will probably cost $50.

    A conversion to mechanical triggers will cost more. I know of a couple of guys that went that route and had other trigger failures as a result. I'm sure it depends on who does the work.

    As far as the minimum recoil required to reset the inertia block, I haven't used a load that wouldn't work in my 682x guns and that includes some pretty soft 7/8 Oz stuff.

    I had My 682 triggers switched to Mechanical, although My Gun Smith who is considered to be one of the best told Me that Betetta 682 triggers cannot be completly converted to a True 100 % Mechanical they still use the inerita block somewhat, but they are as close to 100 % as they can be.

    I use a tube set and like shooting the 410 and it wouldn't set the trigger on the second shot sometimes and I brought it up on here and someone sent me the info on how to convert to mechanical and eliminate the auto safety. I love it and have never had a problem with it since I converted it. I should have saved the instructions but didn't. Sorry but it was very easy with the instructions. Jackie B.
