Designed to be shot hard with conical locking lugs engineered to compensate for the wear of thousands of rounds, the 682 Gold E Sporting has all the features to keep you at the top of your game. The recoil shoulders are replaceable (a must for avid shooters), the palm-swell allows for a more positive grip and the OptimaChoke tubes give you smoking clay patterns. This is a beautiful shotgun, from the select walnut to the elegant engraving.
Some models of the 682 Gold E feature the new Optima-Bore® barrel profile that reduces felt recoil and improves shot distribution. The new long and thin Optimachoke® tubes, also available in the extended version, ensure consistent shot distribution year after year. Top and side ribs are ventilated to dissipate heat as well as improve pointability and target acquisition. They differ from model to model. Barrels are chrome lined internally and have a deep blued finish.
Triggers on all 682 E’s are adjustable for length of pull fit to three positions to better fit the gun to the shooter’s hand and shooting style. Two trigger shoes are supplied: one with a canted surface for right-or left-handed shooters and one with a wide, symmetrical face. Trigger pull is precise and lock times assured through the use of powerful core springs and sturdy alloy firing pins. Exceptional durability is ensured by self-adjusting , dual conical locking lugs, replaceable hinge pins and barrel shoulders, hard chrome-lined barrels and chambers, and obviously thanks to the quality of raw materials, the precision of machining and the perfection of heat and surface treatment. A newly designed ABS hard case, featuring the exclusive double handle, is included.
