    I am just curious, I see lots of threads selling barrels which makes me wonder how difficult it is to fit a non-original barrel to a receiver. Seems to me there would be a lot of hand fitting best left to a smith that has had a lot of experience and knows what he is doing. Thanks, gyrine

    The nice thing about 682's is it a pretty simple ordeal to fit a set of barrels. The only barrels I've ever had to fit were new ones. I have one receiver that has had 7 barrels on it with zero fitting/timing issues.

    My experaince has been that a new barrel that has never been matched to a reciever will need to be fitted typically a good gunsmith can perform this in a few minutes.

    You don't know until you try. My 682 has six sets and none have required professional fitting.

    I bought a new 20 gauge barrel. It would not fit on either of my 682 receivers. Pat (Pat's Gunsmithing in Wells, MN) did a great job of fitting and it fits both receivers. It definitely needed fitting. Cost $150 and took him several hours.

    I bought a set of 32" barrels for my 682 Sporting. They would not fit as received. I sent the receiver, barrels and forend to Cole's. It cost $75 to have the barrels and forend fitted. Cole's is hard to beat when it comes to Beretta shotguns.

    they usually fit......until they don't,.......I have several, but every once in awhile one fits funny, before you start fitting, look for burrs, nicks, anything that can be in the way, if it dosen't fit ask for info before you take any metal off.

    so easy.........a cave man could do it!!!

    I also had a great experience with Cole's. I bought a set of 20 gauge barrels from Mike Battista for my 12 gauge gun, and Cole's charged me $150 to fit them and install a white center bead. I was only without the gun for two weeks and 8 days of that was shipping time (UPS Ground). They did a great job of fitting. ....Rick
