Benelli v. Remington v. Tristar
 
So we've been looking around for a 12ga, and narrowed it down to a Benelli Nova, Remington 870 (Express or the new Nitro), or a Tristar cobra tactical.
I've shouldered all three, and I must say I liked the Benelli the best. Although I trust Benelli, I've been told that the 870 is really reliable and recommended. I haven't heard anything about the tristar, and I'm unfamiliar with the brand. Is it any good? Thanks in advance.

Semi auto
 
I have a Benelli M2 in camo finish and it is superb. I did find out it doesn't like slow burn shells, it would refuse to cycle one or two. Since finding that out it has been faultless. The one advantage Benelli has over most other semi autos is that it doesn't use shot gases to cycle the mechanism, it uses inertia so it's very clean and the gun internals stay that way. A gas recycling gun will need a periodic decoke depending on the numbers of shells you use.

The semi-auto Benelli sounds wonderful but as an 870 owner I can say that it truly is an amazing shotgun, they last forever and you never have to worry about it not cycling rounds. A very well made gun with plenty of goodies and if you don't want goodies it's wonderful the way it is!

there are 2 pump shotguns that all others are judged by. The Remington 870 and the winchester model 12.

In my eyes all other pump shotguns are just trying to be one of them two if not both.

Don't get me wrong the Nova and teh mossy 500 are great shot guns.

You may want to look at the stoeger model 2000 it cost around $400 and is really a Benelli in different cloths.

I am a big 870 fan, i have shot them for years, and since remington bought H&R they started making the H&R Pardner shotgun and it is an 870 at half the price. it fells jus like the ole 870 and it has 870 guts in it, it is a great shotgun that has a great price on it.

Benelli. End of thread. Owned two. Love 'em both. Plan on buying my son a Supernova 20 ga. next year.

Pardner Protector for the win!

Benellis are great shotguns with a great price.
I suggest the Remington 870, great shotgun for the money.
870 best bang for the buck. ;)
Remington's 1100 is a great classic semiauto.
