I am in the market for a new shotgun and came across this gun. I really like the way it fits and for that matter everything about it..weight, inertia semi auto, raised rib etc. Here is the million dollar question. Does anyone own one and what do you or don't you like about it. I am mainly asking to see how reliable this gun is and customer service should there be a problem. Beings you can buy about three of these to the price of one Benelli. Thanks in advance.

I have one, however I use my bennilli nova more. Depends on what you want to do with it if, i like the semi auto feature. Like anything, customer service is hit and miss. I own a custom Austin Halleck muzzleloader and their cs sucked when they were in business. If a guy could afford it and wanted the best i would go with a berretta but who has that kind of money. Really does not answer your question well. Sorry Jeff

as the owner of a benelli and a guy looking to get a new gun - don't cheap out. Get a benelli, you won't be sorry!

I have that same gun and love it. Never had a problem with it and i have put it threw some punishment. I have had it for about 7 years now and has only failed on me once and that was because i twig got in the trigger assembly and wouldn't allow me to pull the trigger. Other than that nothing has gone wrong with it. I also put about 2,000 rounds a year threw it, so it has been fired alot. The spring is getting a little weak but that going to happen when you put about 14,000 rounds threw it. You will be happy with it.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
