    Anyone know anything about these guns? Gun has I believe 28" barrels, and I believe fixed mod & full chokes. Extractors only. Looks the same as a 682 or 686 in every regard.

    I'm wondering what the interchangability would be w/ 682/686 barrels. Took the forend off, and the action appears to be pretty much the same. I'm thinking about buying it, selling the barrels and wood, and using the action and f/e iron to build a trap gun on.

    Thoughts?

    Ian,
    The barrels for a 685 Beretta are dedicated to that model with extractors,barrels from 682-686-687 with ejectors will not fit and are not interchangable.
    Hope this helps !!!

    It's probably a 685S and has a silver colored receiver, right? Despite the apparent lack of barrel swapability, it's a pretty darn nice shotgun especially considering what you can buy them for (if you can find one). I've got one with 29.5" barrels and like it a lot. It's a bit light for high-volume clay shooting but a pleasure in the field.

    IIRC they were produced in the 80's as a lower priced model compared to the mid grade 686 and high grade 687EELL. The competition model was the 680. the others were field models.

    I've got 2 685s - one 26" Imp Cyl/mod and one 28" mod/full. These are great field guns, my 26" gun is 6.75 lb and the 28" gun right around 7 lb. The 26"er is my upland field gun. As said above - they are light for a target gun.
