    I bought a 682 gold top single and I can feel some movement in the back of the trigger guard and next to barrel selector/safety switch when I close he barrel. Does anyone have an idea on what is causing that?

    Sounds like the stock bolt is not tight enough. Which will split the stock if left loose. You will have to remove the recoil pad, unless it has been drilled, to get access to the stock bolt. You will need a long 6mm Allen/hex wrench to tighten the stock bolt.

    Exactly what Mag 10 says. I have a 682 that the Stock bolt broke clean off. My 682 came with a stock wrench but since the stock bolt was broken I had a smith repair mine.

    I had an experience with my old 682. When I changed stocks, apparently I forgot to put the same washers back on and, upon tightening, the long bolt kept the trigger from operating. Without thinking, I loosened the bolt and, voila, cracked the stock in two!! All it would have taken was to put the washer back in!! A hard lesson learned..

    Thanks Gentlemen, I will check that stock bolt as soon as I can get the 6mm hex wrench. How many washers should there be?

    Like the others indicated it's a loose stock bolt. Included with the gun should be a 6mm hex stock bolt wrench, it's the one with the blue plastic handle. If you shoot a lot you'll prob'ly have to retighten it at least once a year.

    The stock bolt was loose, I tighten it and everything seems great. A gunsmith friend helped me, but I would like to buy the 6mm long handled hex bolt wrench. I have found a few of them out there. What length do I need. I bought the gun used so no wrench came with the gun.
