    I need some help from the Beretta experts. I have a Silver Pigeon V in 12 ga that I use for the occasional round of skeet or sporting. I want to add a 20 ga barrel, but Beretta currently has four on sale on their website and I simply don't understand the differences. Can anyone please explain these three to me:

    1) Series 680

    2) Series 686 Field

    3) Series 682 Sporting

    As you can see they are all 28" but one is a 680, 682 and one a 686. So I basically have no idea which one will work for me.

    Thank you

    Out of the three you have listed #2 is for a 20ga frame, so if you have a 12ga then you don't want that one. Like you, I don't understand the difference between #1 and #3. The only difference I see is that #3 states "Sporting" so it probably has the wider rib. A couple of months ago I purchased #1, Stock No: A8N7D142Z00211 and it states "Field" on the box. It looks like these.

    I haven't had them fitted to my receiver yet, but from the looks of them, I'm pleased with the ones I purchased.

    sportin has a gloss finish,solid midrib,and solidshoulders.

    682 has the replaceable shoulders and maybe differnt rib widths.

    my 687 sport has strada rib 1/2",while my 682 gold is like a 10mm.

    all will fit on either gun,except older wide recv 680 barrels overhang on new recv`s.

    Folks
    I have a 1990 era 682 and want a set of 28's for it with the widest non tappered rib available and mobil chokes and as light as possible. What set do I buy that will fit the old wide frame?
    Thanks in advance
    Dean

    vpr80, the barrels I ordered are a matte finish.

    Michael, your product description help clear it up, I didn't realize the difference in the chamber length. That's odd being that most Beretta Sporting 12ga guns are 3" chambers.

    Dean, either set will fit your wide frame. Look on Beretta's website.

    They still have them on sale.
