Hi,

Would like your advice...I'm looking at a Beretta 682 Gold E Trap Combo with a 34" single and 32" double that is about 3 years old in mint condition. Ask is $3.4K. Is this in the ball park? I shoot mostly single trap and occassionally double. Moving up from a BT-99. Question is should I buy the 682 or wait for when the 692 is available? Or, should I get another SBT like the K MS-5 for a bit less used. Looking to spend $3 - $5K max.

Thanks,

Tom

It seems high to me. There is a Joel Etchen 687 on TS now for $3,200 which is a much upgraded gun than the 682 you mentioned. The 687 is the same gun with better engraving and because it is a Joel Etchen Special it will have much superior wood.

Tahe a look for it. It will go fast at $3,200.

I'd stick with the tried and true ,..the 682/687 is proven bulletproof and lots of used barrels, wood and stuff floating around that are interchangeable...the 692 will take a while to get to that point

I can sell you a 682 Gold E 32/34 unsingle Y model for $3650.00. Y models are new guns that Beretta will take to shows and let people handle them. After inspection they are discounted out to dealers. Essentially a new gun.

I just helped a friend buy a 682 Gold E top single 32/34 combo with case in mint condition for $3200...plus shipping.

I considered it to be a great bargain, especially since you can't get new top single combos any more..(at least to my knowledge). I would have bought it myself at that price...had I not just bought a Browning the week before.

I liked the deal and loved the Gold E...as does my friend. We both prefer the top single setup...which is "not the trend" these days.

Good luck ...Stan

since you said you wanted to spend up to 5 grand , Buy a new 687 joel etchens pigeon grade III for 4600.00 well worth the money . I bought one 2 years ago and can say this it's giving me no problems with over 10,000 rounds threw it .

I wouldn't pay that much for a used combo. I bought a 3 barrel set(o/u, top single, bottom single) for $2600 a year ago. If I was going to spend that much, I'd spend a little more and do as other have mentioned and buy a new set from Joel Etchens.

I wouldn't wait for the 692. If you are shooting your BT-99 well, don't change it. Just look for a doubles gun.

Lz X-ray - you'll get a lot of different opinions on TS which is
is the great thing about it . I can tell you I have a 682 Gold E combo and like the
gun very much. I've got around 50k rounds through it and not a single
problem. A couple of years ago I ran a 200 straight with it and almost took
the Pa state singles championship (runner up) with the 682. Etchen
Is a good place to get one. For the money they are tough to beat.
Remember "it ain't the arrow it's the Indian "
Good luck
