Has anyone noticed that the bottom shell on the 686E rubbs against the face where the firing pins are? Is this normal? It happens with every brand shell/snap cap i have shot......

Thanks

I wouldn't think that would be normal. I haven't seen that problem on any other beretta I've handled, or on my Browning Citori. I had that problem on a junk American Arms O/U. I would hope Beretta wouldn't have the same problems....

i have a 686 and the shell will rub the face if the shell doesn't fall into the chamber as the ejector goes down. if the barrel is pointed down and the chambers are clean it doesn't happen. even if it does it puts no stress on the reciever or the shell.
now i'm no smitty buy i believe that if the ejectors are not going down in time the shells rub the face of the reciever you have a problem and the ejectors/ extractors need to be timed.
hope this helps,
brian

Yea my 686 rubs the rim of the bottom shell about .250" above the lower firing pin when I close it.
I don't worry about it, the gun will probably out live me.
