    The shotgun I have is an older model (1993) Beretta 682 Sporting.
    When I was shooting sporting clays this weekend I had a problem where the top barrel would fire but the bottom would not, the trigger would not even move for the second shot. However, if I fired the bottom barrel first, the top barrel would then fire on the second pull of the trigger. I tried this several times as I thought perhaps the load was the problem but I have fired this load many times before in this gun. I can still use the gun by firing the bottom barrel first, but I would like to fix this problem. Can someone advise me as to what I need to look for if I take the butt stock off OR do I need to take it to a gunsmith? I live in the Malvern, PA area and I do not know of anyone I would trust it with in my area.
    If I can at least look for a problem I would like to, I would appreciate any help that the Beretta experts on this board could offer me.
    Thank you,
    Tom Hartman

    What's wrong with bottom first? Also, make sure you haven't moved the bbl selector with your thunb, easy to do on those!

    I suspect it needs a good cleaning and then re-springed. As stated above - Coles is hard to beat. J&P has spring kits for the 680 series - but there really aren't any instructions out there for how to tear down a 680 series receiver.

    It sounds like you moved the selector. Some of the newer guns had a screw that you can put in to keep it from moving. I had Phillip put one in my selector switch to keep it from moving. Try that before you send it off to a gunsmith.

    Tom, you're only about an hour from Allem's Guncraft in Zionsville (right outside of Allentown). Give them a call and take the ride up there. John Jr is an exceptional gunsmith. you'll get your gun fixed and won't have to ship it either.
