    My buddy is a lefty and is looking for a 682 gold combo. He has the chance to buy a nice right handed one. Is there a big difference from LH to RH?

    Thanks.

    Not much of a difference. I had a 682 for years and never knew there was a difference. As long as the sight picture is good and straight down the barrel, it should be ok. However, for a proper fit, the stock can be changed to a LH, which is what I eventually did. Jeff's outfitters carries many at a reasonable price. Hope this info helps..

    If the right hand stock doesn't fit he can always get a lefty from Coles gunsmithing. Dale

    When I had my 682, my only issue was sliding the barrel selector switch when I opened the action. for trap, you can have it pinned ..

    Thanks for the info guys. I think he is convinced to go with a LH model.

    straight stocks or neutral stocks can be used with a adjustable cheek comb, many shooters do this when they begin shooting---have fun

    I'm a Lefty, and there are times that it matters very much. Eye dominance and physical size can make a cast-on stock very difficult to shoot. Stock cast is extremely important. If your friend mounts the gun and is looking down the bbl's instead of the rib changes will need to be made, some of them expensive.

    I'm also a lefty and have a couple of 682x trap models with left handed (cast on) stocks. These really do help and it is a feature your friend will want. The good news is there are actually quite a few of these type guns on the used market and they don't necessarily command a premium over comprable right handed guns.

    Good luck.
