Currently 14 Beretta shotguns 12 O/U. 4 Combo. Found used take off from S 686 E 20/30. Had great success in upgrading 680, 682 X trap & 687EELL from Fixed to mobile to Optima barrels. Just sold 686 E gold sporting. Did no care for snake scale fore end. Have two in 20's. Whitewing LNIB and SP1 both 26". Good for woodcock, if I could hit them! So found used for 1/2 price from S686 E 2001, same as Whitewing. This will allow me to shoot sporting clays, maybe trap, but Mobile chokes. Optima HP are in SV10 (692) Sporting and one SP1. My trap guns DT10 Optima or KS5 gun. Much heaver. So the older Mobile 20 ga barrels may give some mussel weight on the two 20 ga for clays. But for woodcock 26" is faster. Any Beretta 686 barrel is interchangeable in the same gauge. A pattern string may change somewhat with the HP's since they are backborded larger. Try Beretta take off barrels before buying the latest and greatest.
