I agree but also really like The HK Benelli Super 90 imported in the 90"s.

I can’t say enough good things about my Mossberg 930spx. I reload for it, it eats Wally World special, high brass, low brass, reduced powder loads, bird, buck, you name it.

Me and my kids all shoot different semi-autos and have truly never had an issue with any of these:
Winchester SX3
Remington VersaMax
Tristar G2 (left-handed)
Tristar G2 (right-handed)

Only one that was purchased new was the VersaMax. The LH Tristar was bought as a test just to see what it was like (paid $300 I think) and since I had zero issues, I bought another with a shorter 26" barrel as a buddy/turkey gun. I'm a bird hunter and occasionally shoot clays before the season to shake the cobwebs out.

I have had high end and low end semi autos. But my Mossberg 930 SPX Flex Semi Automatic Shotgun 12 Ga and
Mossberg 930 Tactical 12 Gauge Semi Auto Shotgun are the best for the money.
There cheap and I haven't had one fail yet. Bought mine between 550 and 650.

Check out the Escort MPA shotguns, we make mag extensions, oversized charging handles, and other stuff for them. Well made gun and far more reliable than a lot of other stuff like 930

I bought a Kalashnikov 12ga AK just to play with. Thing shoots awesome. I was out with a group plinking in the dez a couple weeks ago. One guy brought his clay thrower. As the birds were tossed I gave the guy up first shot, then I'd go behind them. Nailed it every time they missed.

I have a Beretta 1301 and it is like shooting a Ferrari. It puts my 930 to shame.
