Re: auto shotgun
Yes made by Benelli and I shoot one for upland bird. Now mine is a 48 AL, and its over 40 years old. Was my dads and I tell you I love this gun. I would never spend 2000 on a field gun, like a sbe 2. Simple because that's a ton of cash for one gun. My brother has one and its amazing. But I have held guns I saw online and ended up not liking them, go to a shop and try many of them, ignore price and make and see which fits you the best.
Franchi will serve you well. After 40 plus years of service, you can't go wrong.
