New Shotgun

Postby Workaholics16 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 10:14 pm

Looking for a new semiauto shotgun around like 900$. Im looking at the Browning Maxus, Benelli M2, and the Beretta a300. Any information will be appreciated.

I had a chance to handle and shoot the maxus last weekend, very impressive gun. Lightweight, great features, solid feel and build. Can't speak for the others, but I might consider lifting my auto loading ban for a good ol maxus :lol:

I owned for 391 for a couple years. It was junk.

Love my Maxus though and my SX3!

Do the new benelli guns really kick as bad as some people say?

I don't think they do. Try to shoot a few before you buy. There are plenty of folks around with those guns, you could likely find somebody in your area who would let you shoot theirs.

I don't think Benelli's kick hard at all. Sure you can feel 3.5" shell but thats the same for everygun. Plus I don't think you even feel the kick unless you are waiting for it.

It will be difficult to get most of these mentioned for under $ 1,200.00. Perhaps the American version of Benelli may be under a grand $. ? Browning Silvers are possibly in your price range and the Winchester SX3/ or SX2...if you can find one. Essentially the Browning silver and SX2/3 are nearly the same gun. I have been very happy with the silver and have heard good stuff on the SX2/3. And yes...for a few hundred $ more you can get in the Maxxus, M2, SBE's, Beretta's, etc. Good Luck!

I own a MAXUS. Just dont use any teflon based lube on it. I read the manual cover to cover several times and it said nothing about it. After 1 season of using Remoil my gun became a singe shot. I called Browning and sent it back. They fixed it and said not to use any teflon based lubes. Would have been nice if the owners manual said something about it. Oh well, its a good gun. I love it

I don't know where you live or the weather you hunt, but I know a lot of people up here in Montana that have a lot of problems with the gas autoloaders when it gets really cold (below zero). I shoot a benelli SBE and it shoots better when it gets really cold, in fact two seasons ago we were field goose hunting and it was -25 with 20 mph winds and neither of us had a single jam (my hunting buddy shoots a SBE II). I personally really like the feel of the benelli and the simplicity of it is amazing, I can dissassemble it down to the firing pin and fully clean it in less than 15 minutes. The others are all great guns, but the jamming in cold weather is what sold me on benelli and keeps me with benelli.

You know guys, first time I used Remington shotgun. I can’t imagine that, it is so light in weight. With this, we can easily shoot any target without missing. However, Benelli shotgun is also my favorite which I used hunting in the winter season. You can check this link...https://www.instagram.com/mullerchokes/?ref=badge
