    Differences:

    1. Cosmetics. Engraving pattern. Checkering.
    2.. 682 E Barrels: Overbored (lighter) and longer Optima Bore chokes.
    3. Price. About $1000 more retail.

    People who hate the cosmetics, buy a 682 Gold/Greystone and put aftermarket 682E Optima Bore barrels (Cole Gunsmithing).

    In terms of what is it worth? Go to gunbroker.com and do a Smart Search and see what people asked for them and what buyers paid. Hang on to the 682s...the new Perennia is CRAP!

    Most important difference is the overbored barrels and Optima chokes, no matter what popular opinion is these kick less than the old barrels. The stock is different, some like the more traditional old stock and checkering others the new style.

    Perennia seems to be Beretta replacement for the Gold E, It is available now in Sporting version and is due to come out in the fall of 2010 with a Trap version, it will have selectable ejectors ( eject or extract ) and a removal Trigger group, also it will be built on the 600 series frame and include a Kick off system ( Recoil reduction system ) I just hope it is not the same Kick off system that Beretta is now putting on their 391A Extrema 2 Semi auto, because the one on the Extrema 2 doesn't do crap, and they charge you $350 more for it, I just bought the Extrema last week and they sent Me a free kick off system and after installing it and putting it to My shoulder it takes all of My strength to pull it back and feel it move.

    drhuner- I REALLY hope I'm still shooting (even breathing) in 2110! LOL Sorry I couldn't resist. About 2056 I hope to be shot in the back with a double barrel with my boots in one hand and my pants in the other while shuffling out the back door in the middle of hearing "You son-of-a-&$#@*!, mess with my young wife will you?!" LOL, LOL, LOL

    I'll take a Gold (greystone) over the Gold E any day. The titanium nitrate (nitrite?) finish on the receiver is indestructable and the checkering is...well checkering versus that crap pressed in or lasered fish scale stuff they put on the Gold E.

    Do not get me wrong...I am not disparaging the gun of anyone who has a Gold E...no, I don't like the little orbital design on the receiver and yes, I'm rather old fashion and expect checkering to be checkering. But both guns are extremely servicable competition durable guns for a reasonable amount of money (compared to the rest of the market).

    Baron's remarks indicate why Joel Etchen has his hybrid 687s built. A lot of people prefer more traditional engraving and checkering but the Gold E does have better barrels, so a marraige of the two makes for a great gun. The only mechanical advantage of the Gold E that is mssing is the position-adjustable trigger, but that can be added (if needed) for under a hundred bucks.

    I have seen this done on SX-1 target grades in the rolled in scroll. It looks nice but it does seem to age over time. But apparently removing it and redoing it simple.

    Looks nice man...enjoy your gun.

    Yes original checkering But I did refinish the stock it had an oil finish on it and I put a gloss finish on it <a href="http://s108.photobucket.com/albums/n37/drhuner/?action=view&current=TrapShooter.gif" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://s108.photobucket.com/albums/n37/drhuner/?action=view&current=flytargt.gif" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://s108.photobucket.com/albums/n37/drhuner/?action=view&current=100_2214.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://s108.photobucket.com/albums/n37/drhuner/?action=view&current=100_2211.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a><a href="http://s108.photobucket.com/albums/n37/drhuner/?action=view&current=100_2210.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    Very nice looking wood, especially for a factory Beretta stock (mine looked like a Hershey bar but I'm a registered skeet shooter and wood get target dinged to death anyway LOL).

    The 682 Gold E has a set screw on the barrel selector to prevent accidental changing of which barrel fires first when you open the gun. The Etchen 687 Silver Pigeon doesn't have a set screw on the barrel selector. I lost targets with the 682 Gold by putting the shell in the wrong hole. I sent the gun to Coles to have the selector pinned which was not cheap when you consider shipping and insurance both ways.

    The 687 Silver Pigeon doesn't have the adjustable trigger as mentioned. The 682 Gold E does.

    It's only my opinion but I think the engraving on the 687 Silver Pigeon looks cheap and fake. The 682 Gold E receiver looks cool.
