Will the next generation 692 with longer forcing cones, wider receiver, and other tweaks, best the older DT-10? Will it put downward pressure on DT-10 prices as people look to move to the new platform? Would you gamble with buying a used DT-10 now and maybe miss out on more gun in the 692 at what will probably be a similar price point for a NEW gun. I know the 692s aren't here, but I always seem to get caught in the last best wave, when the next best wave breaks. What are your thoughts?

The DT-10's are a lot more gun than any of the 680 series guns. Sight unseen, you can only guess about newer versions. My guess is that I would still prefer a good, clean DT-10 over a new improved 680 series gun.

A inexpensive DT 10 would be my choice or a Ase 90 even better like everyone in business making a gun for a price range has forced the quality to shrink just look at the safety selector on a old 680 compared to a new Onyx or 682E DT all the way

In Australia the DT 10 wasn't well received at all. Too many malfunctions and I think everyone expected it to be a reborn ASE90. The DT 10 prices dropped by 3 grand a pop once the DT11 was released to clear the old stock, and a DT10 EELL went from $22,500 to $15,000 in 6 months.

The DT 11 is just starting to try and recoupe some of the disgruntled Beretta fans but they are all disgruntled with the DT10 everyone hasn't taken to them much either.

The 692 will try and take the lower level (682 gold E) market and in my opinion be far more successful that either of the DT models. It will have a lot to live up to if it is to be as popular as the original 682 as their build quality on most of their medium budget guns seems to be a lot worse now than 15 yrs ago.

In my opinion The silver pigeon (687 etc) series have devalued the original 682 series actions badly because you can't build a decent brand new trap gun for 2 grand. They looked the same but were rubbish.
