    Contacting Rem Arms Help

    All of those parts can be replaced with Benelli parts… The only parts of a VM that aren’t replaceable are the barrel, receiver, and piston assembly.

    Mossberg 940 Shotgun

    As someone who owns and has experience with both, the wider rib and loading port on the Ultima is an improvement. You know I’m a fan of the Outlander. It has not had a failure to cycle since the first week I’ve owned it. Over $8,000 rounds now. However, the Upgrades on the Ultima are worth the...

    cz waterfowler 1012

    I don’t hate Shotgunworld either. Wake man is a paid Shill. When is the last time you saw one of his videos “reviewing” one of the new Beretta lines? He went from singing Remington’s praises and arguing with anyone who even mentioned the possibility of Remington going Bankrupt to completely...

    Mossberg 940 Shotgun

    I own a black 20 gauge a300 Ultima, and an A300 Outlander. The Ultima I purchased cost me $750. I don’t know where you priced yours, but the average price I’ve seen on them recently is $800. I purchased my Outlander in 2018 for $725. It was the camo dipped model. I added Briley oversized...

    cz waterfowler 1012

    I own autoloaders with safeties in both positions. I’ve never had a problem operating the safety on any of them. Honestly, I don’t even notice it while I’m hunting. I shoot all of my guns enough to develop muscle memory.

    Rem Arms

    I have to agree with Alldrakes as it pertains to the V3. I wasn’t overly impressed with the V3. I did shoot it well, and the recoil management was good too. However, the bolt design did seem to be a weak point. My biggest area of concern was with the scoring on the cam pin after only a few...

    cz waterfowler 1012

    The 1012 is an inertia gun. Pretty simple design. CZ has a good warranty. If the gun malfunctions, they’ll fix it. Honestly, if you want a good inertia gun, and don’t want to spend more than $650 or so, You may want to look into a Weatherby Element. It’s also Turkish made, but the company that...

    Rem Arms

    I’ll agree that shot shell availability is a concern. Affordable is a relative term. I seriously doubt we will ever see 12 gauge duck loads sold in the $10 range again. Even the cheap stuff has doubled in price over the last couple of years, and inflation will only increase prices. As for...

    Newer Browning A5 3 inch vs 3.5 inch reliability

    3.5" inertia guns are typically less reliable than 3" inertia guns when shooting 2.75" light target loads, but will cycle waterfowl loads fine. As others have mentioned, the recoil from shooting 3.5" waterfowl loads through an inertia gun is pretty rough. It's a young man's gun.

    S&W 1000 Shotgun

    A neighbor of mine has 2 20 gauge models. He let my daughter shot clays with one of them a few years ago. Very good little autoloaders.

    Beretta Xtrema - Problem Solved

    Considering this thread was started in 2004, I believe the OP was referring to the 391 Xtrema line. The A300 Outlander (the one made in the US) wasn’t produced until 2012, and the A300 Xtrema was introduced shortly after that. Then there is the newest A300 called the Ultima (Also made in the...

    S&W 1000 Shotgun

    My father owns Benellis, Berettas, Brownings, and Remingtons, but the first shotgun he grabs when he wants to shoot dove or quail is his S&W model 1000. He’s put more rounds through it than all the rest of his shotguns combined.

    Browning a 5 vs maxus

    Considering the SX2 also weigh’s in at close to 8 lbs and has the same action as the Maxus line, I have to say the VersaMax is softer shooting in my experience. The active valve gas system is a very good gas operating system though. The writer of this Field and Stream article seems to agree...

    recoil pad

    That may help my situation with my son’s Sa-08. I was looking at getting a full size stock for when he grows out of this 12.5” youth stock. If there’s a falcon strike pad that will fit the Sa-08, I can put one on and lengthen it an inch or so, and not have to worry about getting another stock.

    Browning a 5 vs maxus

    I’ve never found a softer shooting gun than the VersaMax. However, the A400 is second as far as my experiences. The problem some seem to have with the A400 is the kickoff can cause “face slap” when shooting heavier loads. It’s never bothered me, but I’ve shot with people who have complained...

    Browning a 5 vs maxus

    This is more of a gas vs inertia question. I prefer a gas gun.

    recoil pad

    If I recall correctly it’s a hydraulic dampener. Wouldn’t that be a similar concept to the kickoff on a Beretta?

    Looking for everyone’s opinion on a good semi auto duck and goose gun

    That's a good price. The SX4 is a very good autoloader. I like my 20 gauge SX4, but I gotta admit, if I had to choose 1 of my 20 gauges for waterfowl hunting, it would be the Ultima. The black synthetic A300 Outlander sold for around $650, and is an excellent autoloader as well. I own one of...
