benelli nova pump. lightish mostly senthetic. 18.5" barrel and can take up to 3.5" 12g shells. camping stager 00buck/slugs. Be sure you got a tough shoulder though. It kicks like a Mule being chewed on my a demon. There is a inner stock recoil absorber (I REALLY WANT to get one) that makes it very nice. And you can get them for under $400. Lotta nice features too. mine has rifle sights and extended mag tube. Also has bypass on pump to let you hand feed a round instead of pulling from mag.
and i just looked how old this thread is. nvm.
