    Yea the Gold E with the Unsingle adjustable Rib just came out in 2007, some of the earlier models had a fixed rib unsingle

    It is not a combo .It has the adjustable rib and it is a gold e.The gun has seen very few rounds.What are the pros and cons of this gun.Would i be better off to stay with my bt99 .I hold a 95.33 avg in singles and i stay in the 90 in handcap with a 97 for my high last year.

    The only real difference mechanically between the old Berettas and the Gold E is the Optima bore barrels. I have a 687EELL unsingle combo and the rib is not adjustable. The barrel was manufactured in 1995, according to the information that I have. Bill Malcolm

    My local gun shop has the 682 Unsingle NIB for $3399, so $2500 for a nice lightly used one probably is a fair price. I had the 682 combo set. It was a beautiful gun, but it beat the living crap out of me...even with 1 oz loads. If you can shoot it before you buy it, it might be wise just to see how it works for you. It felt great to me in the gun shop, and I shot it well but gawd...the recoil and face slap was unbelievable. The BT-99 is a soft shooter for me. Not so for the 682 unsingle.

    The 682 US is a nice looking gun. What I don't care for is the non drop out trigger. May not be a issue with you as you shoot a BT99. I shoot release and desire the easy access of the drop out for cleaning and matenance. I also do not care for unsingles as I prefer higher ribs. My opinion only. Post-2

    682 is THE best gun to shoot when you have a cold. It'll kick the snot right outta. I liked the one I shot but decided to go with the other B gun. Fit me better.

    Frye, your last sentence says it all. If it fits, it won't kick you. I'm 5'7" about 160lb. and I can shoot my 682x all day long with no discomfort. I do shoot 1 oz. loads, but even on the rare occasion that I shoot 1 1/8 it still has little recoil and no face slap. And even though the gun was some years old when I bought it 8-10 years ago, I have yet to have so much as a broken spring. Knock on wood. Great guns in their price range in MHO. Ganger
