Recommended Posts

franchi are owned by bereta you cant go wrong them if it fits, i really like them..the balika are a bit barlle heavy but they are a work hores built on the ruggered side of shot guns i have the 3.5 and im happy with it as its all i could can affored at the moment and will probly keep it for a number of years and see how i hit with it. i have seen and heard horrable things about the 3.5 rem sp sm 11 87 have a good look at the franchi or as every one says and i like them too 391 urika the franchi is a little bit lighter i like lite guns for swinging on fast birds if i had my way and the money i would be looking at a franchi or a recoli operated gun like the benalli or maybe the bereta pin tale es100 for all my shooting but i likre my russain balika for geese 7 or 8 shots with a mag extention :lol: with a hundered gesse in your face.

 

:lol: the first thing you should look at when buying a gun is fit :lol:

I have a 391, Franchi Spas 12 (8 shot) & Benelli M3 super 90.

 

Franchi is very fast, Benelli is faster still.

 

The 391 would be good, but mine is only a 3 shot, still it's very fast, and is my gun of choice for the pigeons...

Although you can make benelli's into a 5 shoter I think it is illegal over here, I may be wrong and anyone on the site can correct me if i'm wrong.

You don't need a 5 shoter for foxes anyway because by the time you would be firing the fifth shot the fox would be out of range.

hi red,

in my opinion benelli are the no.1 and second the beretta.

we use only outo's here,so telling by experience.

Wouldn't go near the Browning semi's. A lot of people have had awful experiences with them including myself!

My most expensive shotgun cost me £400 and its more than good enough for what I do.

 

Go and see if you can try them before you buy.

As I'm left handed my choice of semi's is limited. I use a Benelli Montrefeltro Ultralight Field shotgun (5 shot) which is available left handed. Excellent gun, very light but practically no recoil due to ejection system - a revolving bolt which means no gas chamber, making it very easy to take apart and clean. If purchasing a gas operated semi the mechanism will need cleaning quite often under heavy use as this is what usually causes them to jam.

Red,

I have followed this topic for sometime, may I add my threepenneth?

Why would anyone want to decrimp? But yes it is possible to do or alternatively fit a new magazine tube.My other observations are as follows southpaws can use R/H semi-auto,s no problem, you don,t really notice the ejected case,Remington,s are fragile,Winchesters not bad nor Brownings but I rate Beretta,s Ulrika, but I have to say in my experience all auto,s have got some real bad bits in them, still you pay your money and take your choice.

got the berretta al391 ulrika and its a cracking gun.the only problem i have had is with light loads at clay grounds,sub sonic light shells wont cycle cleanly.occasionally had trouble with 30g 6s but local gunshop advised going from 65mm cases to 70mm and not had a problem since.cleaning is a bit of a chore but other than that its a good all round gun.
