Default Benelli shotgun

I am thinking I'm wanting a Benelli shotgun. Dang, there are too many models to choose from.
What is the difference in the Nova and Super Nova?
Anyone have a suggestion on which model(s) to look at?

I rarely use a shotgun, a bit of skeet, crow shooting, and some bird hunting.
I'm looking to buy my "last" shotgun. Mostly I've been hunting with a well worn Ithica 37.

If this is your last shotgun break down and get a semi auto you will not regret it. The Nova's are nice but a semi is so much nicer to have. Super Black Eagle, Super Black Eagle II, Cordova, etc you can't go wrong with any if them.

If your gonna get a pump gun just get an 870. I had a Nova and hated it, it felt ok in the store but I never liked the way it shot, had a couple of jams, it just never felt right. Get a Remington 870, great gun lots of options and never any issue with function

I'll second either the 870 or 1187 or even the Mossberg 835

Any will last you a lifetime even if you use it hard.

I don't like the Nova's. never had a function problem and mine shot well. I just didn't like the way it handled or felt when shooting it.

Benelli autos are very good shotguns but in my opinion way over priced for what they are.

You'd never believe the number of rounds the wife and I put through a couple of 1100s shooting competitive skeet and sporting clays before we bought over and unders. Many 10s of thousands of rounds and I changed maybe half a dozen o-rings in them over a 30yr period. They still have the original extractors and firing pins in them.

There's been little "real world" improvement in pumps or semi auto shot guns in 40yrs or more.

Remington did take a step backward in the quality dept with the 870 express shotgun... the wing master was a much better product from a quality of construction standpoint.

PS: that ithica is one of the best pump guns ever made. I'd have it refinished and keep it.

I have an M2 and will never part with it. Gun runs wet, dry, muddy, icy; whatever you throw at it.

Default Rem 870

In my opinion the Rem 870 is the best. I wouldnt trade mine for any other shotgun out there.

Its all opinion like who makes the best bow! I have a Benelli M2, a Nova Tactical, 870 Wingmaster, 500A and a Stephens mod 67. I have owned Browning's, 1100's, Winchester's, even a Street Sweeper in the past....Each is/was the best for the purpose that I desiginated it for!
