New Beretta

Picked up a A300 Outlander 12 Ga. yesterday.
Sad part was I had to part with my old trusty 1100
to help pay for it.
But then again I allready have enough shotguns.
I looked at an 1187 and the Beretta was hands down a better fit.
Lighter and slimmer.
All the research I did said this was sure bet for an Autoloader under $1000.00.
Hope to try it out on some Potter Co. Grouse soon.

Re: New Beretta

Wonderful shotgun. I looked for a long time when I was making a decision to retire my fathers Franchi 48 AL he had given to me. The Outlander was high on my list. It really fit me well. Loved the way I could swing it. But I happen into a situation that got me a Browning Maxus That I just couldn't turn down.

Re: New Beretta

I hear ya, I looked at a gorgeous Bennelli but was a tad to steep in price for me.
The Beretta shoulders really nice for me and feels so much better than the 1100, although I hate to say it.

Re: New Beretta

Got a new 300 last month in 12ga. Love it so far and it'll hold up better for field use, than my fancy 1187.

Re: New Beretta

I bought the wood model, good looking gun but nothing fancy.
Not as nice looking as the 1100 I traded in.
I just can't believe how much better it feels in hand and on the swing than the 1100, lighter also.

Re: New Beretta

My initial impression after 75+ rounds fired, is that the felt recoil with the Outlander is far more tolerable, than with my 1187.

And with a bad shoulder, that's pretty noticable and appreciated.

Most of our club's trap shooters use O/Us and kinda look down on autoloaders. When I had it out there a few weeks ago, one insisted the Outlander is made "overseas", until another one of 'em noted that it says "made in USA" on it.

HaHa I like that,
Says right on the box, Made in the USA.
Haven't fired mine yet but will do that this weekend up at camp.
Glad to hear about the Recoil.
