Mikey,

I don't have a 930 SPX but i have a 930 Camo Turkey Model that is one fine shotgun. I have had it for about five years. I think you will be very pleased with it. So far mine has been extremely reliable!

The "cheaper" guns don't hold their resale value like the higher end guns do....I pattern a lot of turkey guns (mossburgs, winchesters, benellis, berettas, brownings, ithicas, remingtons) and the 4 best shooting guns I have had the pleasure of shooting is a benelli SBE2, a benelli nova, a STOEGER m3500 (which is made by benelli), and a winchester 1300 (which in my opinion is the best pump gun ever made).... shoot whatever makes you happy If you don't think benellis are worth the money don't buy em
i'm not judging how anyone spends their money...i'm just looking for a factual reason why the benelli is worth 3X as much.

all i normally get is "better quality" without a description of what "better quality" is?

i have personally never owned a benelli. i very good friend does though, and he says his benelli WILL NOT cycle cheap target low brass, and will not rack a shell from the tube. two BIG turn offs for me...especially in a gun that costs 2-3X as much.

i've never dropped my mossy in a puddle to see if it keeps working (its too pretty with my wood stock.) but i have seen almost any autoloader dropped in a puddle and keep on chucking lead.....even many AR's will do that!

resale value is a good point. benellis have a good rep. still bet i could get 60-80% back on my mossberg as well though. most any gun with a good rep holds value pretty well.

this inertia system may be the bees knees, but if my mossy chucks all ammo without malfunction...how is benelli's better?

i'm still not convinced that paying for benelli is no different than paying for nike, or iphones....simply a name brand people "expect" to be better.

i'm not saying i'm right, i'm just saying i haven't seen any real evidence to prove benellis are worth the high price tag.

but again, people may spend their money however they choose.

Here's my straight answer.

3gun is a GAME. Why would I buy a $15-1700 shotgun when the $650 shotgun does what I need it to? If you bought it strictly for resale (who the **** does this? ) your looking at it all wrong. Cause as I see it, that's about $800 worth of shells I can run in it before you even bought your gun.

I run Glocks too. But, why not an Ed Brown 1911, or a..... you get the point.

I've been playing these games long enough to know my guns are going to get shot. ALOT. they're gonna get tossed in barrels and on tables. They're gonna get eFFed up.



When I show up to a match and see a luxury car parked next to the Chevy pickup, I automatically know I'm going to get along with the guys that got out of the truck, and not the dude in the smedium affliction shirt and tight pants with the bedazzled ass. (Laugh... I've seen it)

You don't NEED the big money gun to play. It is that easy

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Everything I said was all in my opinion....there isn't anything wrong with a mossburg the only "cheaper" guns I have ever seen actually have something wrong with them was a traditions al 2000 semi auto. My dad bought one and The tube actually broke when.it was shot and it flew apart. But like I said everything I stated before is my opinion...I like the way a benelli shoots, feels, etc....but I don't have anything against somebody who don't like em that's fine...I don't like remingtons but I don't go around dissing all of them

Just a tidbit of info regarding the question of cost. First of all being a Mossy 930 owner they are good guns as well as the Benelli! One of the reasons that adds to the cost of the Bennelli is simply import tax coming in to the USA and who knows what additional costs are originated in the manufacturing country. Kind of like a SAKO rifle which I would like to have another one some day. They are also top quality rifles but they are also top price! As stated I guess the whole issue comes down to what you are using it for and does it fir the bill. And finally the money you want to spend to get what you like. And unfortunately text does not express our true meaning to the words we post and sometimes can be taken in the wrong light! Without smiles, fun jabs accompanied by facial expressions and voice tones it is easy to misunderstand the true meaning! So this is a great group and I also have fallen into this trap myself on occasions. But talking about it usually always resolves the issues here!

God Bless America!

i already listed two things the mossberg does, that the benelli won't. my mossberg has not had a single malfunction of any ammo including low brass (mostly), buck shot, slugs in 400+ rounds. yet...you still label it cheap? i think quality is based on performance myself.

now its your turn. convince me that the benelli is better. what does it do better than the mossberg? explain the "better quality." please understand, i'm not trying to be snide....i really want to hear the facts on the matter.
I have shot all of my Mossbergs over 400 times in a single day. They never malfunction. I don't even have to pull the slide back. I fire the gun recoil ejects the hull and presents the new shell for battery. I just pull the slide forward. Never a single problem! My old Wingmaster works the same way. What is a Benelli worth? Whatever the market will bear. If you're looking for me to buy it, I am not in the market. Sorry Bubba

Thanks for all the input guys I feel I made a good choice and after shooting it a few times and about 300 shells later with no problems and accurate I love this 12 g auto loader I can put 8 rounds fast down range and it looks bad ass tactical

Just picked up a 930 used and it gave problems. Took it back to the shop and he sent it to the factory. Getting a new barrel/gas system so will have a virtual new shooter except for the bolt/receiver.
