Default New Semi-Auto

Looking at getting a new semi auto shotgun to replace my Remington 1100. It has too much memorable value to me and is gonna go up on my wall. I was looking at the Winchester SX3 and the benelli SBII. Which would you prefer?

I prefer a good gas gun to any hard shooting Benelli. The SX3 is a GREAT choice...

I researched the heck out of this last summer...it came down to Winchester SX3, Browning Silver (essentially the same as the SX3) Browning Gold and Browning Maxus. I'd be happy with anyone I mentioned. The Maxus is the latest and greatest from I found.

Winchester SX3 is a very good shotgun. If I were you, that's the way I would go

Is there a difference between the X3 and the SX3? Where I'm looking, the X3 is 50 bucks cheaper and all I can see as the difference is the stock

I'm a big fan of the Saiga 12. Just my $0.02

I've looked at them but for waterfowl hunting, it's just not for me. Home defense is another story though

I retired my '63 1100 from waterfowling a few years ago. Sold the Magnum action sleeve, and got a '66 1100 Magnum. Put the Steel Shot barrel on the '66. Now the '63 is just for clay games when I decide to use a 12.
