    Down here in Aus we are only permitted to use 1oz loads for doubles. As I have a
    dud shoulder and back I now use a PFS however I have a small problem with it on a 682 Beretta. If the stock is adjusted for minimum felt recoil the inertia mechanism on the Beretta sometimes will not cock the second barrel. I think it may be possible to lighten the inertia setting springs however I would be interested to hear of any other shooters experience with this problem before I attack the gun.

    Barry- The PFS can be tightened so it will absorb (actually elongate the recoil curve) less recoil. All you have to do is tighten the column of Belleville washers that act like a compression spring. The instruction book clearly explains how this is done.

    The amount you tighten the washers will take a little experimentation.

    When I was shooting your set up I had mechanical triggers installed in my 682. Solved my problems. Jake

    I don't think he is looking to absorb less recoil.

    Barry,

    Just have your triggers on your 682 set up for sub-guage tubes (mechanical) and all your problems will be solved. This is a very simple, cost effective fix.

    Thanks for the replies - much appreciated. Pat I can solve my problem by going the other way and locking down the PFS to absorb less recoil ( almost solid) and the triggers will reset. I shot another Beretta today which had been modified to mechanical triggers and as a number of you guys have recommended this is the way to go. It fixes all the problems.
    Thanks again
    Barry
