    Hi My name is John B. I am new to shooting targets but have shot all my life Quail, Ducks ect.. I have a Beretta 686 white Onyx sporting and a Beretta 682 top single. I would like to build a gun like the Casear Guerini Sumit Impact using the 682 gold receiver. I want to build a gun that I can shoot trap and sporting clays. I don't compete other than social shoots locally at my gun club. I don't have the money just to buy the Guerini. I would like to use as many parts of the 2 guns I thought about having my 686 barrel fitted to the 682. The 682 has an adjustable comb. I intend to go to a gun fit expert and have the gun fit especially the stock. I have been told that you cannot use 1 gun to do trap and sporting but I am hard headed and I think other gun manufacturers do it like Guerini. I would appreciate any advise.

    I would start out with what you have John then go from there then after a little time has gone by then go for a new gun. I started out 8 years ago with a Browning XS 28" barrel and did very well with it, then this last Christmas my wife gave me a New Casear Guerini Sumit ........ I am still trying to get use to it but its coming around now for me.

    Good luck!

    John,

    A a stock with a parallel comb offers some benefits but it is hardly necessary. A stock with the comb at the right height is VERY important and any way to get it to that height will work just fine.

    Trap stocks usually have alightly higher combs on them so they will shoot slightly higher than sporting guns.

    My advice is to have your 686 fitted to you, consider a 4-way adjustable comb and shoot it. In my opinion, investing money to have a barrel fitted to another receiver is money poorly invested. Just modify your 686 slightly and you will be fine.
