    I have the same problem with my 682 gold (For runner to the "e") when shooting doubles. The barrels are too hot to touch but I do it anyway.

    I've had the same thing shooting doubles with Brownings, Berettas and my current CG.. I think it has something to do with double the shots in the same time frame. lol

    Are the ribs the same between both guns? The rib is a big heat sink. My barrels (not DT-11's) get pretty hot in the summer time too. I have burned my fingers on them.

    I AM WONDERING IF THE POI CHANGES WHEN REAL HOT A ISSUE IN SINGLE BARREL GUNS. SOME PEOPLE CRIO THEIR BARRELS SO THEY DO NOT WALK WHEN THEY HEAT UP.

    This is normal. No worries. Barrel heat effects rifles accuracy. Shotgun would be hardly noticeable. Remember your not shooting with rifle accuracy.
