I've only had this happen to me with top barrell selected first.

I'll shoot my first shot and go for the second shot and the bottom barrell won't fire. If I pull the trigger a 3rd time I can get it to fire.

This isn't happening all the time. Maybe 3 to 5 times out of 100 rounds.

I took the stock off, the action doesn't look to dirty in there but I sprayed it with wd-40 and got some crud out of it. I have 3 to 5k rounds through this firearm.

Any suggestions before I send it in for warranty.

You don’t want to use WD-40 for gun internals. It leaves a gummy residue. It is fine for cleaning barrels. The detergency acts like a gun solvent and the odor is not as strong as Hoppe’s. But you should not use it inside the gun unless you rinse it all out with mineral spirits.

Only this week did I learn what Trigger Lock meant. (not fully releasing the trigger in time for the second shot). I found myself doing it twice in the same day.

Now that I know, I hope I never do it again.

Also called trapping the trigger.

Thanks. Of course by internals I meant the action, trigger, etc., the workings. Internal to the barrel is no problem. But you knew that.

I just use the Mineral Sprits when I decide the trigger group needs a cleaning :) And if WD-40 is close by I'll spray a bunch insides the Bbl's then stand on end while doing rest of the gun or use CLP or QMaxx blue sprayed inside the Bbls. like I said I'll grab what's within arms length :)

Beretta 6xx series have 2 cocking rods which run through tunnels in the bottom of the action and they're a fairly close fit... WD40 leaves a residue and if it gets on the cocking rods it will gum them up and sooner or later cause them to stick. This is not a good thing as it (a) leads to misfires and (b) requires an expensive strip down to clean the residue out.

Don't ask me how I know this, but no doubt someone will be along shortly who's been using WD in their Beretta action for years and never had a problem.

I have had the cocking rod problem with a Beretta. Listen to Trickster.

You are right on.

Shouldn't be expensive if you take it apart and clean it up yourself.

Well I sent it to coles after I took my other 686 out with zero issues so I don't think I was trapping the trigger.

I don't normally use wd-40 for cleaning at all. Only used it once after having the initial issue.

While Cole has it to find out what the issue is I have them doing some work to the trigger as well.
