Well the title says it all. Looking at these two guns and like them both. Be primarily for pheasant, but you know how huns and sharpies tend to find there way in the mix. Just curious what your opinions of both outfits were. Thanks
Are you keeping the Maxus? You seem deadly with that gun.
The 20 ga "uncle" gun, Browning, might be a good choice to keep...
As far as recoil, that Benelli will rock you. I can't hit a barn with a Benelli but can't miss with Browning...I would go A5.
Jon. I think your looking at another poster who has really cool first two initials. As for the Maxxus, yes keeping that one for life. I think that is Brownings most underrated gun. Very easy to clean with few parts also. Not as slim as the Italian guns but what a soft shooter.
I wouldn't touch a Benelli with a 10 foot pole. I know some people swear by them, but I know several people with Benellis and not one of them cycles right. My father has a Montefeltro that works sometimes, but he has an SBE and SBE II for waterfowl and they are junk, the least reliable shotguns I've ever seen.
I understand that you and others have had good luck, and I'm glad you have. It leaves me puzzled though, because of all of my other friends who have Benellis have similar issues. I'm glad some people like their Benellis, but I've never met someone who owns one that didn't cuss it. I do really like the Nova/SuperNova line of pump actions though.
