    They are totally different guns.......try each before buying. The 525 is much more dependable IMHO.

    Be sure it is the 686 White Onyx Sporting model, there are different models of the 686 which most others are field guns.

    The 686 White Onyx is a fantastic bang for the buck and will do anything and everything in the clay target games you desire. A new one should run you around $1750 to $1800 or so, maybe less depending on the deal you can work and such.

    FYI ... also remember that if you purchase a Browning and need service work done to it you could have bought a Beretta and either still be shooting or have a Beretta back from service and be shooting for 6 or 8 months before a Browning will be worked on and sent back to you ... so remember that as well ... IMHO

    That's real helpful, Newbius. Thank God he doesn't want a Perazzi, with their chronic broken spring defect. And he shoulda bought a Mac, and they never should have moved the Grand to Sparta. And he coulda had a V-8.

    I like a little humor too, but the guy asked a simple question, he deserves a straightforward answer. He said he was a newbie, so you can't expect him to know what clever, fun-loving guys we all are. Give him a break.

    Oleo - is that a Black Onyx (field gun) or a White Onyx (sporting clay) gun?

    There is a difference.

    The Olympic Training Center has been using Nasta targets until recently when the imbalance between the dollar and the euro really went out of whack. They are currently using White Flyer. Lawry makes a good one as well.

    If your new at the game, and standard height, get a 30" barrel. 32" barrels
    swing better for most, but have a learning curve. Shoot one of each before you buy. Everyone's fit is different. Personally, I prefer the Beretta, but that doesn't mean anything. If you buy a used gun, get a 3 day tryout period.
