Beretta 686 problem?

    Recommended Posts

    Okay, so got my first shotgun, got it home, stuck in snap caps (sorry Martin, but come on, first gun, get it home, I can't not fire it) pulled trigger once and yes it goes click. Try and pull trigger to fire second barrel and nothing.

     

    The gun has a barrel selector switch - one side of the switch is marked with 1 red dot, the other position of the switch is marked with 2 red dots.

     

    After first shot of click if you manually flick the barrel selector switch over and pull the trigger again, the second barrel then goes click.

     

    Am I missing something.

     

    I was expecting two clicks one after the other. The only way both will fire is with manipulation of the selector switch.

     

    Cheers,

    The Beretta 686 has an inertia trigger mec which means it needs to go bang for the second barrel to cock.

    If you bang the butt of your shotgun with the palm of your hand this will set the trigger

     

    Perfectly OK

    I think that when the gun is fired with a live cartridge in, the recoil from the first shot selects the 2nd barrel.

    Snap caps do not produce enough recoil to switch the mechanism over.

    Take it out and try it :lol:

    Single selective i beleive it's called

     

    Switch it to fire the bottom barrel first and give the stock a nudge on the floor and see it the second goes off

     

    If so it's fine as the recoil from the REAL cart going off frees the second striker to fire the second barrel :lol:

    roughshooter has it covered mungler, inertia triggers need the recoil to set the second barrel, As LG said, set the selector for bottom barrel first ,this is the lowest set barrel and the most shot, if the gun is new it will be very tight, you'l think your going to break the thing in half opening it, it'l loosen up with use, dont be tempted to rouge the thing, let it wear in itself, one other thing with berretas, make sure its very clean around the action when assembling or breaking, they have a tendancy to leave small steel fillings or chips/burrs that will cause gouging in the action sides, please take care is all i ask, i have had to repair many .

     

    glad you got your gun son, so out you go and have fun, the snapcap thing will wear off trust me :lol::lol:

    pull the trigger once, then give the butt a tap on the floor and you will hear a click, then the trigger will pull again.

    I have had a 686e and now have a 687. All i do is to open the gun, put the snap caps in, fire off the first barrel, move the selector over & fire off the other barrel, job done. If i'm cleaning it, i then take off the fore end and open the gun to remove the barrel, this way you won't re-cock the hammer. Both of the guns i have do this, it's normal.
