I ordered a new stock for my 686, when I removed the old one I found the threads on the bolt have been pulled. The threads on the reciever are still good. I'd clean up the threads on the bolt if I knew the pitch. It looks like a 12/28, but I'm not sure. I tried Numerich and they don't list the Onyx or at least not that I can find.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks,
Scott.

WARNING!!!!!!!!! Be very careful about the length of the stock bolt!!!!!!!!! I have a 686S Silver pigeon that spent some time at Coles because I didn't know that Beretta has made several lengths of stock bolts. I purchased a second stock for my gun off of ebay, I needed one to make adjustments to for my son. This way I could leave the original stock alone. Well, anyway, the first time I put the second stock on everything seemed fine until I put a couple snap caps in and tried the trigger. Nothing happened. The shoulder on the second stock was cut deeper, hence when I screwed the stock bolt in it actually went too far into the action and bent trigger parts up.

I sent the whole gun and spare stock into Coles for them to fix the trigger and to provide a proper length stock bolt for the second stock I have.

Personally I think its both really stupid that Beretta made the same gun with several different stock bolt lengths. Secondly I think it's stupid that the design of the reciever is such that it's even possible to break things if the stock bolt goes in to far. Third, I think is stupid of me to have simply tried to swap stocks on a gun that I'd never done such a thing on before. Well, it was an expensive lesson.

Just be careful.

Thanks John,

I have found that out already. I didn't know ahead of time, but for some reason I checked, just out of curiousity, and found my stock was cut deeper than the replacement. I really appreciate your info. Thats one of the great things about this site!

Thanks again,

Scott
