    took my newly aquired beretta 682 to the range today... shot the top single <no problem>, shot bottom-barrel-first doubles with the o/u <no problem>, shot singles with the bottom barrel of the o/u <no problem>, shot singles with the top barrel of the o/u << BIG PROBLEM! GUN OPENS AFTER SHOT >>

    Any idea what the problem could be??

    Upon first thought I thought it might be the locking bolt ((obvious issue)) but in talking with a gunsmith since this ONLY happens with the o/u and not the top single he was thinking maybe a weak top lever spring ((( btw - top lever is exactly centered when gun is closed ))).

    Thoughts???

    Sounds like you need to take it to gunsmith and have him fix it. Sounds like it needs a rebuild and a new lever spring. Sorry I can't recommend a good smith for Beretta's. Good Luck with it and break em all Jeff

    If the top lever is @ center, its time for new locking lugs and a top lever spring. Send it to coles.

    does it pop open during 2nd shots of doubles?

    and you have no problems with the top single, correct?

    Was it a true combo, or did someone pick up a used o/u and tossed it on without fitting.

    BigM -

    it does _not_ pop open during 2nd shot of doubles.

    I have _no_ problem with top single.

    It is a true combo (serial numbers all match).

    After talking to a gunsmith over the phone that showed the top lever to the right of center with the o/u barrels on and just past center with no barrels on. as such he does not think it is locking bolt but instead a weak top lever spring.
