    What is the main difference between the Beretta 682 and 686? I have been the the Beretta web site and there is not a lot of information listed. I have seen different combo's for sale that I cant find that listing or combo listed on their site. I have also seen where a vendor lists a Beretta # eg. J686E84 but I cant find any reference to that on their site. Is there a better place to look?
    Thanks dave

    I know the triggers are adjustable on the 682 and not 686...can't remember what else, but I am sure someone else knows the rest.

    Internally, the 682, 686, and 687 are identical, I believe. The only differences are external in the type of exterior "decoration" and the 682 has an "adjustable" trigger for LOP change. The 682 trigger can be retro-fitted to the 686 and 687 series. Barrels are interchangeable for the most part. My Joel Etchen Trap Combo features a 687 receiver with 682 Gold barrels for instance, put together that way by Beretta as specified by Joel Etchen Guns (JEG). JEG guns also have their own serial numbering and are marked JEG Special by Beretta.

    The other part to the equasion is that the the 686's had plain figured wood with neutral cast and palmswell.

    682's usually have nicer grained wood and true left or right handed dimensions.

    They are both excellant guns. The 686 just doesn't have all the frills.

    Doesn't the 682 weigh more than the 686?

    The 682 barrel sets have replaceable locking lug recesses and the 682 trap models that I have weigh a lot more than my 686 field guns.

    IMO The new berreta line of O/U shot guns look cheap compared to older models. Maybe its just me but the older 682 before the gold E guns and the ase 90s were awsome looking guns. have you seen the new white onox -what- and some of the others that look like kmart O/Us. the dt10 is nice lookig though.

    the 686 has scroll engraving on the receiver, the 687 has a game seen engraving, the 682 are plain.


    they are mechanically the same.
