Yeah mine is a '62 I believe and was handed down from my grandpa to me in an unwanted way. That's how I got all his guns. But the semi auto just spoiled me from the beginning and I don't mind dropping the extra dime to get one over a pump (which I love my pump too)

I don't know your intended use.

From personal experience, if you buy a Benelli for your intended use, you will not regret it. Reliability is king.

I know guys who have been duck hunting, dropped them in the river, fished them out with their boat anchor, and finished hunting, WITHOUT a failure.

They do shoot differently than gas guns. I don't believe they shoot harder. I would say a gas operated gun shoots smoother.

I'm not a hunter. I'm a clays shooter. I originally bought high end gas guns. I found them to be far too finicky. Traded one of my gas guns for a Benelli Sport II. Nothing but pleasant shooting ever since.

The Benelli I traded for was clearly used little. I have shot over 30,000 rounds with this gun with no failures, other than primer failures.

Personally, I absolutely LOVE my Sport IIs. ( I added a second one)

I'll use it for both clay sport shooting and hunting. Mainly dove, duck, quail, etc

Remington has the new versa max, shoots any load from 2 3/4 to 3 1/2 magnum loads. I hear berthing but good things about it. It's a little pricy though. 1000+ new.

+1, definitely enjoy my Benellis, a 12 ga SBE II and a Montefeltro 20 ga.


I hunted pheasant last fall with a couple of guys that were using Browning Silver Hunters, they were happy with their choice in shotguns.

I agree on both counts. I own a Benelli M2 that I've only used for clays so far. It's handled everything I've thrown at it without a problem. Field loads, target loads and even lightweight handloads have been digested without complaint. Easier to clean too (I think) since there's no gas system. The crud is all in the barrel.
The recoil impulse is different. I've shot my M2 and a friends Beretta AL391 one after the other. The gas gun feels like it is slower cycling and thus spreads the recoil out over a bit more time. The M2 does feel like a quicker rap to the the shoulder. Not harder, just quicker. At the end of the day, my shoulder feels the same whether its the 391 or the M2. YMMV.

Hate finicky gas systems. Benelli. I'm still on a H&K M1!
