Beretta or Bennelli

Postby mdnewgoosehunter » Sun Sep 21, 2014 11:13 pm

Been saving saving up for a year for new goose gun - any prefer the new beretta over the sbe?

I've been shooting my stoeger 3500 last season

I've had a sbe2 and currently have one of the original h&k sbe 1's. Both are great guns. Berettas are great too. If you're gonna buy one make sure you get whichever one fits you the best. If it were me though and the 3500 fit me well, I'd keep on keepin on with that gun. You can't go wrong with any of them.

Shoulder both, see which one fits you best. Both are good guns. I shoot a SBEII but I am by no means married to it. I personally like inertia guns for cleaning purposes (both of the guns you mentioned are). The only reason I went with the SBEII was I found a killer deal on it, and it shouldered well for me. The a400 shouldered extremely well for me as well.

I love my 3500 and it performed great -

I take a lot of customers hunting and usually end up loaning a gun. My backup gun was my old 1100 3" - plan is to buy new gun for me and turn the 3500 into backup and retire the 1100

Buying one Saturday - shouldered both - leaning towards the sbe as it feels like me franchi 20" I shoot pheasant and quail with, as all part of that same "family"

You get more for the buck with Beretta, I shot a stoeger, wore it out then switched to beretta. Have shot Berettas for 5 years
and I am staying with them. :D

While your at the gun store, don't forget to look into the super vinci. I had a beretta xtrema 2 but it kept failing me in critical moments. So I sold it.

This ^. I bought a SV in max4 and LOVE it! The gun has been flawless shooting Hevi-Metal. It's my "goose killer."

Both are great guns. I bought beretta 3 years back and experience that it is very nice gun. I haven't a single issue with my beretta. This is a fantastic gun.

Both offer great options. The Beretta A400 is an amazing all around shotgun. It’s probably the softest shooting shotgun on the market. Benelli has a extensive line of shotguns too. The Super Black Eagle 3 is a great option too. Benelli offers a 10 year warranty. Benellis will cycle everything that you throw into the chamber and I know guys that shoot them for an entire season and don’t clean them until the season over and they keep on running. Both will serve you well if you take care of them.
