    Can anyone tell me if there is stock interchangeability between a 30 year old 682 and the newer ones?

    Nope. Around 1993 or thereabouts the receiver got a bit thinner and the stocks no longer interchanged.

    The 680's stocks are all interchangeable, sometimes with minor fitting.

    The the Receivers on older 680 series guns are wider through the receiver flats (1.660") than the newer guns which are 1.595" thick. Wood fit on Beretta stock are usually "proud", the stock on my 1985 vintage 682 skeet gun is 1.760" wide where it meets the receiver flats. This stock on a "thin" receiver would be even more proud, but it would "fit".

    The newer "thin" stocks are 1.640" thick. They fit fine on a wide receiver, they will be .010 below flush.

    FYI: Beretta sold 682's with both wide and narrow receivers for several years before they switched over to all thin receivers. The barrels on wide receivers have wide barrel shoulders, they will over hang on a thin receiver, but will work just fine. A thin barrel on a wide receiver is a better fit, as the barrel shoulders fit a bit below flush with the receiver flats.

    All things being equal, thin stocks and barrels make a better fit on wide receivers than vice-versa.
