    I am looking to buy a new 12 gauge. I already have a Beneli Super Nova. I bought it because of its good reputation, but I hate it. It is always double ejecting shells, not firing when there is an unshot shell in the chamber, jamming, and the safety randomly locks itself on safety. No one has been able to fix it. I'm about to sell it. Please don't suggest it to me.

    I am looking for a right-handed pump action 12 gauge. No semi's, double barrels, or over and unders. It also must have a synthetic stock.

    I don't want something that is going to cost close to a grand. This is going to be used hard and in bad conditions.

    I've always been a big fan of Ruger and Remmington.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Honestly ya can't beat the reliability/looks of a good ole Remington 870 Wingmaster. If it's a little too fancy for what your doing, they make a camo-magnum version that handles 3-1/2 inchers. Just about good for anything under the sun for less than $700 and will last double your lifetime. Love my little 870 Express 20ga, but it's not as fancy and doesn't have the higher quality of machined/fitted parts.

    Love my 870. If you go with the 870 express instead of the Wingmaster it will even be cheaper.

    You must have gotten a bad one bc I loved mine and know a lot of people that had them and loved them....but take a look at the new winchester super x pumps...they are nice guns
