Heh, not so much.

Though if you wanted a new A5, those can be had in 16 brand new from Browning!

wut? Has to be expensive to be light and swing well?

I'm not looking for anything super fancy. A good field gun that I don't mind beating on.

The Benelli Ultra Light looks very nice though. Where are you getting $2600? Same gun?

Again, Franchi is a good shotgun for a fair price with Benelli technology. Itís a good deal

Hey! The one you posted I didn’t know existed but it looks like a great shotgun too. I never saw that one in my dealers catalog. I’ll check it out tomorrow

The 16's were always around 50 years ago, most often as Rem. or Win. pump. Once the 20's came out in 3" chambers the 16 ga. was phased out. Same thing happened with the 10 ga. with the advent of 3.5" chambers in 12 ga.
IMO the new 12's can do anything, even with the steel 7 shot for quail in a light field load, or pheasant as a first shot flushing over a dog perhaps followed by 3" heavy 5 or 6 load. Just depends- your preference vs. the single universal 12 ga. in the best gun for your budget.

$1200 up charge to put on an enlarged bolt handle/bolt release, enlarge the forcing cone, cerakote, extra fancy chokes, and EDM porting(really necessary?)

That more modest model looks like a real nice set up. I think the performance one is overboard for what it is. I'd rather have two of the regular models... one in 12ga and one in 20 haha.

I am going to look into picking one up.

Actually the PS guns are pretty amazing. Performance Shop guns are tuned and balanced to Performance Shop specs. I had a 12 and a 20 and they were pretty amazing. Lightest shotgun with very little recoil. They did sell too. Easy sell in the Bay Area. Probably not so much up North

I am definitely a Beretta guy through-and-through when it comes to shotguns. I think an a300 would suit your needs really well, or even an older 391 could do everything you want it to do. Mine was never finicky never cared about what ammo, never felt like it was over or under gassed and just flat ran

With your price range I would recommend a Winchester SX4 for a semi auto or for a little less, a Stoeger 3000 or 3500.

If you can push your budget up and are interested in a 16 gauge, the Browning A5 Sweet 16 is a great option for a semi auto.

I'm a broke mo-fo, so I just use my old 870 Express with a 26" Carlson barrel with a bead and fiber optic sight combo. It's bulky, but I consider it carry-on.

If you are looking for an O/U, I would recommend a CZ or Stoeger.
