I just got home from the funstore and this is what I finally decided on. "A Benelli" I originally wanted your standard issue Remington 870 to fill my pump shotgun needs but after reviewing all of the features of this Italian beauty I could not say no to bringing her home. PRO's Ghost ring sights, for those longer shots with slugs. shoots all shells (2 3/4 up to 3 1/2 inch) seriously versitile if ammo gets slim. Rotating, dual lug, steel on steel locking bolt head. Very durable polymer overmold receiver, technology borrowed from Glock magazines. Comfort Tech recoil reducing buttstock and gel pad. Awesome location for the safety! Just forward of the trigger guard. Location of the slide release borrowed from Remington. Magazine "lock" button, which allow the shooter to empty a chambered round without loading a round from the magazine tube...so you can drop in a slug or other specialty round. Extra large trigger well for gloved hands. A pistol grip buttstock can be mounted on this model unlike the original Nova's. Sexy Italian design and build quality. I just field stripped it and man is it easy to tear down and put back together. No more messing with interrupter levers and shell stop levers flopping out. CON's The fore arm has a slight rattle but so did alot of my shotguns I guess? Expensive. Out the door price was $500 which is kind of alot for a pump but hey its a Benelli. The Mossberg 590 SPX (with ghost ring sights) was over $650 so I actually feel like I got alot of bang for my buck considering the features the Benelli has. The shop did not offer a model with a mag extension and did not have any +2 shot shell extensions on hand. Now I gotta go shopping on line. It only has 1 extractor compared to the 2 my Mossberg had. Oh well, my Mossberg didnt have a rotating dual lug bolt head so its a trade off I guess? Man I am so happy I sold off my 590 special purpose to fund this baby!!! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
