As long as the shotgun gets shot regularly and the springs changed out. A semi, sitting in a corner for years with a stack of buckshot, much higher chance of a malfunction than if a pump.Probably not a right or wrong decision so much as what is best for the individual shouldering the weapon.
Yes, they both have springs. But a pump spring can be SO much softer since timing is not an issue. Also, buckshot deforms the hulls (why buffered #1 is a good choice) and leads to feed issues that a pump won't have.How? Both have springs...are you saying the semi springs are weaker than the pump springs...or am I reading your statement wrong?
It's pretty good. What I use for Heavy Division in 3Gun. The Stoeger P3000 is a less expensive clone.Perhaps I shall look into what Benelli's pump shotgun has to offer. I'd never researched this model or considered one.
