I just purchased a Beretta 682 off Gunbroker, received it today and its a Skeet Special. Was not listed and such and not a fan of the fixed choke tubes. The gun also has a set of Kolar tubes with it. Thoughts? Should I try to move this gun and buy one with interchangeable choke tubes like I want or can this gun be effectively used for sporting clays?

You can have Briley do some thinwalls for it. Depending on the barrel length, you might take a beating on the resale.

That didn't even cross my mind. Thanks will look into that

I own and shoot a gun with Briley thin walls. It is a great choke system and Briley does a good job. But be sure you like the gun before you make the investment.

I'm willing to sell the barrel and tube set up.

You would e much better off keeping the barrel ans sending it to Briley to have it converted to thin wall chokes. Because 12 gauge barrels are not at all easy to find at present. Have Briley work on your existing barrel ad you'll only be without for some number of weeks. Sell the barrel and it may take you two years to find a replacement.

we're you going to shoot sub gauge sporting clays ?? you'd have to buy Kolar chokes for your tubes,

I just bought a skeet special (for skeet),

I think I'd probably tell you to pass it on and buy what you really want, ready to shoot,

A friend of mine owns one with 28" barrels. Great for skeet, but a little too light and whippy for sporting clays.

I'd buy something more suitable for my needs.
