Re: semi auto shotguns

Not sure how much money your looking to spend.
I have 2 Rem. 1100"s and love them.
Not sure if they make one in 3" but I know you can get
an 11/87 in 3".
If they shoot anything like the 1100 ya can't go wrong.
I recently almost bought a Browning Gold Hunter 3 1/2".
After reading numerous reviews, many complained of
this gun not cycling properly.
So I couldn't warrant shelling out $600.00 for a used gun with that kind of rap.
To get reviews you can Google it.
Just enter the brand, model and type in reviews.
Good Luck

Re: semi auto shotguns

I have been the owner of a Remington 11-87 for 15+ years and have shoot countless of rounds out of it. I would suggest you look at this gun.

But...

If I were in the market today for a new semi - I would be looking at Benelli or the Beretta's closely. Much more $$ than the Remington, but probably worth it.

Re: semi auto shotguns

You will love having an autoloader! I have owned and used Remingtons, Bennelis, Charles Daly, and a Beretta.

All of them worked just fine.

My favorite is a Benelli M1. It just feels good.

Some people have whined about the Charles Daly, but my own personal experience has been very good. No problems. Cycles everything I put through it just fine. Plus, I have seen them used for us low as around $250.

Good luck in your search.

Bet regards, Glenn
