Beautiful sporting gun. A classic and one that will appreciate in value. Love it. The interesting aspect about beretta is the general excellent quality of its products. For a high end shooter who wants a cut above a moss berg or Remington. Not a gun fior carrying across the fields and hiding in bushes - sporting clays are its main reason for existence. Very accurate and forgiving. It allows a mediocre shooter to get on target very quickly. Makes an excellent shooter more consistent… Read Full Review

Excellent weight balance even on 30'' barrels.The grip is perfect and the chokes are giving fantastic patterns at very long distances, either for shooting or hunting. I would comment to anybody that wants to feel sour and confidence about the gun he will hold in his hands. My opinion is that it is one of the best hunting and shooting tools for beginners or experience. … Read Full Review

Right ! The reason for the funny title is that I have owned 4 682 gold E's, all of them excellent in what they do - I am lucky that they all have fitted me off the rack. Now back to the reason I have owned 4 of them, Gun No 1, 30\" sporter superb wood, few ejection problems when new but sorted by GMK via Essex Gun. This gun went rusty and showed signs of corrosion in the action body, rust came through the gold inlay on the base and beretta logo on each side, this happened in about 12 months of… Read Full Review

When I was determining which shotgun I wanted to buy I checked all of the reputable magazines and read all of the reviews. I wanted quality, reliability and something that had a special resale value if I hated it. I decided on the 682 gold e. Great decision. Had it 4 years and it is superlative. All my friends always ask if they can shoot it. Highly recommended. … Read Full Review

I have waited to write a review because I needed to give this gun a decent chance before deciding.!!
I wanted a gun from new to be sure of its history so I bought the Beretta 682 Gold e with 30" barrels and Optima extended chokes.
Budget, as with most, was a factor to a degree but I wanted to make sure I was getting the best/most gun for my money as I wanted to choose well and choose right for the next 5yrs+.
I shoot once a week with good friends who both have more money than me, but both are… Read Full Review

Bought new for £1650 in early 2007. Shoot every weekend - no serious probs other than almost losing the trigger pin (loctite it in) - others have seen this too.
Machining isn't top class, several rough finishes on metal parts (especially ejectors) and one engraving error (I'm not happy about that - engraving ends "prematureley"). Chokes with plastic rings look cheap/tacky but pattern well if slightly high. I would recommend a session on a pattern plate with your favourite cartridge. Cylinder… Read Full Review

I have used the 682 gold E for the past ten years for shooting woodpigeon, I have found the gun to be fast handling and accurate with very little recoil, in fact, most of the time I am totally unaware of any recoil at all. This an excellent all round gun happy to be used for pigeon, rough and formal driven game shooting. Will I ever sell it? No… Read Full Review

Second hand buying advice:
Not all Gold e's are the same - especially when buying second hand.
1. Some have a very plastic feeling wood which detracts from what is otherwise a quality gun - it makes them feel like a cheaper gun. Go for good quality wood.
2. Some of these guns have been heavily used. Spend a few hundred quid extra and be confident in your purchase - you wont have any regrets.
3. Once you have negotiated your price (at least £200 off the asking - more for new), ask the… Read Full Review

I exchange my 30" DT 10 for a 32" Gold 'E' 3 months ago.
With-in 2 weeks my scores at sporting went up by 10%.
It is much easier to handle than the DT10 and very much better
with crossing birds.
I shoot with 1/2 & 1/2 and 7 1/2 Ely Superbs… Read Full Review

First gun, bought because the only guns they would let me try were the new miroku at 1400 and this one second hand. I figured since I couldn't even tell it was second hand, why not get a bit more gun for my money 9still 1400 quid).
Have had it a year and have since tried a LOT of guns - some of them 20k's worth! - Still like mine best!
Occassional shooter - but just won my clubs sporting and skeet trophies... so it can't be a bad gun eh!
I highly recommend it!
The only thing I would have bought… Read Full Review

I have had both the Beretta 682 gold e. 32 sporter and trap models in 32". I found the sporter a very good gun but could not believe the poor quality of the cheap plastic coloured rings on the chokes which split and the writing came off on a gun of £2,3oo. This has now been modified to metal. The poor mecano set choke key was another severe dislike The gun is over priced new even discounted and you can pick up a second hand one for £12000 to £1400. It is among the ideal clay busting greats… Read Full Review

Over the last 2 years I have owned a silver pig 5 30, EL2 30, EELL 30, Miroku MK38 30.MK70 30. 682 goldE 32, and a Beretta tekneys Auto 30, which I still have. The Beretta 682 gold e. 32 patterns and handles better than any gun I have owned and has fairly low recoil in comparison, and I've had a few. … Read Full Review

Awsome bit of kit.
I only use chokes 1/4 +1/4 and I kill any clay I need to with it.
It patterns very well on the plate, very even, but it does shoot flat which I love because it means you don`t have to shoot low all the time,you just stay right on line with the clay, easier to remember and work out when you`ve not much time.
You can get one with some fantastic wood on it as I did if you ask to see the ones in the back not the plane ones on the shelf.
I ended up paying for a brand new Beretta… Read Full Review
