    I have a chance to buy a real nice looking Beretta 682 Gold E Unsingle. I have shouldered the gun and love the way it feels and looks. My main question is what are the goods and bads of this gun? What can i expect as far as reliability? What is the going rate for a like new say 98-99% gun? Thanks in advance---Matt

    Is the gun a unsingle or a combo, a combo should be approx $3500 & a single 2900. The Beretta is a good gun, but if there is an O/U barrel check to see if both barrels shoot to the same point. Bereta's o/u barrels sometimes shoot to differet spots.

    I have three Beretta O/U's - a 686 X-Trap, a 687 Sporting Clays gun, and a DT-10.

    I love them all.

    The 682 is a 'return' to an older style frame (the parts for all the 68X series gun interchange - in theory). the guns are very solid.

    I cannot tell you how many rounds I have fired with no problems what so ever.

    If the price is right, and the feel is right and you are happy with how it shoots I see no reason to NOT buy the gun.

    Good luck,

    In my oppionion the 680 682 686 are some of the finest most reliable target guns ever produced. I shoot my 682X for Trap, Skeet and Sporting. I have three barrels and the gun is just a joy to shoot.

    gold E used like 98 percent

    probably 2900 combo on the open market and 2100 only one barrel

    98 percent is a pretty high mark though

    Thanks guys for the input. The reliability factor is what i was really concerned with. I'm a Browning person and just kinda feel in love with a new girl so to speak. The price ranges you guys threw out will surely help in my negotiations. I was looking at the Unsingle only but i may just look for the combo now.------Matt

    I gave up a Browning Citori that I had made All American Military 5 times when I was on active duty for a Beretta!

    I have two 682x combos. Very reliable with the only weak part being the inertia reset spring. These tend to break after 15K-20K rounds and then only when you are in the middle of a round of registered doubles. These are $5 parts that you can replace yourself. I do it every year.

    The better of my two guns was probably a 95% gun when I bought it 5 years ago, the sale price was $2100 from a well known outfit in Ohio. This is for a top single combo - left handed gun with nice factory wood.

    You can purchase a new 687 Silver Pigeon II grade unsingle from Joel Etchen Guns for $3,450 or a combo for $4,050.

    These guns are special-ordered by Joel every year and are mechanically the same as a 682 Gold E except they do not have that gun's position-adjustable trigger, but that can be retrofitted for less than $100. Cosmetically, the 687 SPII has nicer engraving and more of it and Joel specifies an oil finish on the wood because it is easier for an owner to repair in the event of a scratch.

    Look at them on his website (link above).

    I believe a 98% combo would bring more like $3600 to $4000.

    they are great guns, a little light for handicap loads, but about a 1.25 lb. weight in the butt stock will tame them down, I really enjoy shooting my unsingle.
