    Mechanically -- not cosmetically -- what are the differences between the Beretta 682 Gold and the Beretta DT-10 trap guns ?

    The 68x is an A&D(-ish) underbite boxlock.

    The DT-10 is a Greener(-ish) crossbolt boxlock.

    Functionally, there is no difference: they both work well at holding barrels onto the receiver.

    Cosmetically, you can make a trimmer, lower-profile receiver with the A&D.

    Maintenance: if you fall in a mud puddle, the 68x is easy to clean & de-grit; the DT-10 is a booger-bear.

    Personally I think the DT-10 is much easier to strip down and clean. The cocking rods can be removed and the cocking levers are a little easier to mess with. Firing pins as well. The hammer springs on the DT-10 are harder to deal with - I'll give you that!

    DT 10 is a higher quality machine product. It has DT=detachable trigger (Drop out). Adjustable factory rib on unsingle model. Solid as a rock and extremely dependable. BTW I have two of them.

    682 has a factory adjustable rib(unsingle) as well. No drop out trigger though.

    Is the DT10 worth the extra money over the JEG 687?

    If it shoots where you look, it is priceless.

    What is the price delta now, as the DT-11 is in the pipeline?

    How abt the used market? They depreciate as bad as L-guns.

    Have you shot one? They are a completely different feel and visual field than a 68x.
