Went to shoot skeet today with my Beretta 686 SP I Sporting, I have a little over 2 cases through the gun (I bought it new). It has been a great gun, but today I experienced 2 light strikes from the top barrel (I shoot this barrel first) the ammo I was using is Fiocchi 12 gauge 1 oz #8 shot going 1170FPS. This happened twice with the same barrel and I have fired about a case of this ammo through the gun. Once I changed my ammo to Monarch 1 1/8th oz 7.5 shot going 1350 FPS, I no longer had any problems. And the two boxes of Fiocchi I brought with me fired fine again these two shells were the only problem.

My question is that it appears ammo related, but could it be my gun? O shot a whole case of the stuff and just now I am having problems, but when I change the ammo it goes away. And I brought 2 boxes of the Fiocchi with me and they fired fine except those 2 shells.

The two shells fired after a second trigger pull.

I had a 686 that did this. Fixed it by dripping some oil into the firing pin holes.

Am I wrong, or aren’t firing pin channels supposed to be kept clean and dry. As for the problem, it is like so many others. Be patient and you will know more about it bye and bye. The problem will be clearer over time.

My manual goes against oil in the firing pin holes. So I will not be doing that.

Could of had a tiny bit of gunk in there and the higher FPS shells dislodged it,even though new probably wouldn't hurt to pull the stock and clean the trigger assembly.

Check that your cocking rods are not stuck.

Cock the gun, remove the forearm, remove the bbls, push in on the cocking rods in the bottom of the receiver. They should both be lightly spring loaded. It either is loose or not spring loaded you have a stuck cocking rod plunger. This can cause light strikes. A small burr or a bit of debris in the wrong place can cause this.

Just checked and they are moving and spring back into place

Thank you

I use a small pan and lay the receiver in it and cover with mineral spirits to soak in. Then use compressed air to "blow dry" it (from a short distance to no pins etc MAY shift) Then your choice of a light oil (a VERY LIGHT coating) dab dry use air once more and good to go :)

The mineral Spirits do a GOOD job of cleaning without stripping all the stuff off like other cleaners so why just a very light coat is applied before putting it back together :) Good luck and good shooting to ya :)

I am very surprised to hear that. Glad it worked out for you.

Did you inspect the primers on the 2 problem shells after the misfire? I've seen some very deep set primers on factory ammo.

As for oil in the fp channels, I'm not surprised it worked in the short term but I would think it will collect/make gunk over a longer period.

Me and the puller checked that and yes the primers felt deeper in the case when compared to the other shells.

Deep set hard primers will do it every time.
