    I understand the Beretta 682 Gold E Trap comes backbored or overbored (depending on which terminology you prefer). I have the combo with top-single and it's about 5 years old. Does anybody know what the standard bore ID is?

    Thanks, Jennifer

    Italian barrels has original bore diameter on it's left side in mm. 12 ga. are usually 18.4~18,7

    Gold E most likely are 18.7 or so.

    Hey thanks guys, I did find my bbls stamped 18.6 which comes out to .732 - not as big as I thought it would be. My husband has a much older 682X and his bbls are stamped 18.4 which is .724. I guess for concrete data, it's time to go bore gauge shopping.

    Thanks for the quick reply! Jennifer

    I have an Optima bore 32" O/U that gauged at .730 for both bores.

    I've measured about 10 Optima barrels and all were between .730" and .732".

    Thanks for all the numbers, guys. Looked at bore mics online - a bit pricey! Maybe we don't need to know the actual diameter of our shotguns that badly, lol... Jennifer

    It's true that they aren't cheap but they can save you many times their cost when you are considering the purchase a used barrel that your bore micrometer indicates has been butchered. They also are a necessity when you want to know how much constriction your choke tubes really yield.

    Ed, you're right. Anybody doing a lot of trading would benefit from knowing the actual dimensions of the bbl and chokes before they buy. I was mostly curious about the actual constrictions of our chokes relative to our bbls. It would be a handy thing to have, no doubt. J

    Jennifer, like I always said, don't buy a boat, all you need is know someone that has a boat.
    I go sailing in the weekends, team with a few when we race 5~6 times a year, even the boat owners told me not to buy a boat.

    Patterning board is much more important than bore micrometer, unless you're a dealer.

    I think you're on to something there Steve. Luckily we can pattern our guns right on our property, and do. Besides, there's a little gunsmith shop in our town here and I think I could get my bore mic'ed for less than the $200-$800 that a bore mic costs!

    Yes, Jennifer, I would certainly think so!
