    The best person that could answer that question would answer the phone if you called (724) 238-0332 or you could ask for Joel and he might be able to help you as well.

    If my memory though is somewhat accurately close I think it around .730 give or take a scoonchy or so.

    As indicated above, the best source of exact bore size would be Joel Etchen guns of course. But while I am not sure of the exact size (tho I bought one of these combos at the last Grand American), they use the Beretta 682 Gold E barrels, which are over bored. They are the Beretta "Optima" target bore, and use the Beretta Optima chokes (Beretta has three bore sizes: the Field "mobil choke bore, the field over bore "Optima Plus" choke system, and the target over bore "Optima" choke bore). Beretta lists the Optima bore size as 0.732

    My son's 687 SPII combo's single barrel has a bore diameter of .733" and the O/U barrels are both .731". For more info, the gun test I did on that gun can read at the URL above.
