    Ok guys I'm thinking about putting a new Turkey gun in lay a way and I've got it narrowed down to a few I just want your all's opinion....it's down to the Winchester sx3, benelli super vinci, benelli super black eagle, Browning maxus, Browning silver, or the beretta extrema a 400....
    I will primarily be using it for Turkey hunting, but it may also see the sporting clays range, a little pheasant hunting, deer hunting, and small game hunting.....
    Please don't tell me to get something not listed because I don't want a old 1100 or 930
    Thanks

    I want a 3 1/2" that is drilled and tapped and I have had plenty of the middle of the road guns and there isn't a thing wrong with them I just want to get a higher quality gun

    I use a Win Super X2 and it works great. I have the 24" NWTF model and it is a great gun. I don't think you would go wrong with any of the guns you mentioned. The hard part is just finding the choke tube and load. Have fun!!

    Any of those you listed will do it. My preference would be the Winchester. I'm not a Benelli fan, but I think you are, so that's the way I would bet. :)

    +1 for SBE II. I couldn't be more tough on mine and it still comes back for more. I thought it ran smooth as glass before I started using Frog Lube 9 months ago, now it runs like greased owl ****! Amazing shotgun!

    How is the recoil? What shell/choke combo do you shoot? And what kind of patterns do you get out of it?
