Beretta 686 XT

Im looking for a new trap and possibly skeet gun and I found this model Beretta selling locally for $1000. I really like the beretta brand and already own one of there autos (an AL390), but its time to break into the O/U world.

Assuming this gun is in good condition, is this an alright deal? Any thoughts or opinions on this particualar model? Anyone own one of these?? I think I might go look at this in person check its condition and see if it fits me...

Thoughts and opinions?
If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons made Rosie O' Donnell fat!

My 686 has more than 30K rounds through it and is just getting well broken in.

I've heard that at about 80K rounds I may have to replace some small parts. I'll let you know.

Even if this version has fixed chokes, well worth the asking price.
