I recently bought a Beretta 686 in 3.5" and looking to swap the stock set out for something more suited to a left hander.

I'm looking at some second hand stocks and was wondering if someone could explain the differences in dimensions between field, sporting, skeet and trap stocks from a Beretta perspective.

Also, do stock sets from 682, 687 models interchange with 686 stock sets ?

Thanks in advance.

A good gunsmith who knows how to work with wood can alter the inletting and give that stock you have a little cast on. There is no need to trade out the stock. Yu might be able to buy a butt stock with cast on from Beretta.

I think that a 686 and a 687 will work but not sure about the others. Field sporting and skeet stocks are usually fairly close to the same. A trap stock will have a higher comb.

Stock sets of 682, 686 and 687s interchange, but all require a bit of fitting by someone who knows what he's doing.

Competition (Sporting, Skeet) stocks in 12 Gauge are a bit thicker and taller at the butt. They require larger buttpads and feel a bit "beefier" than Field stocks for 680 series guns. Drop may be slightly different, between Skeet and Sporting.

Trap stocks would be a poor choice for anything but Trap.

Like astomb said, since these stocks do require fitting, you should be able to get this one tweaked a bit so you have cast on.

You might look at pfs stock. I had to change shoulder a few years ago. I tried to get the b stock to fit. Finally gave up. I bought a pfg stock you can adjust it 9 ways from hell until you get a prefect fit.

Thanks for the replies.

olddog45,

Strangely enough I saw one of these PFS stocks over the weekend at a clay shoot and was wondering what it was. It looked like something out of a Terminator movie.

How have you found their claim that it reduces recoil by up to 50% ? Is it a practical stock for field use ?
