If you had a choice on a new automatic 12 guage what would it be? im looking at super black eagle, the winchester sx3, beretta xtrema 2, or the mossberg 935

I shoot the 935 and my brother shoots the SBE. The SBE is a better gun. The 935 is rugged and has never failed me and was easier on the check book. Just a little on the heavy side. I would probably get the new winchester, speed kills. Sounds like a blast to shoot.

I have shot a Black Eagle and that gun "fit" me like a glove. Loved it!

I have yet to shoot a SBE II but I can only imagine whats instore for me when that happens.

The Extrema just doesn't come to my shoulder very well. Purely personal preference there.

No experience with the others.

Take that for what it is coming from a guy that shoots an 870 Wingmaster 12 gauge pump that I've owned the last 12 years of my life... And loved!

It does kill birds! Bought & paid for for under $400 grin.gif

I think you should add the Browning Gold to that list. I own it and love it.

I would choose SBE II. I've shot all the guns mentioned and the SBE fits me best. It would be worthwhile if you put each up to your shoulder though and see which fits you best and feels the most natural. I also have the Browning Gold and don't use it much anymore after getting the SBE II

I've hunted with a SBE for 8 years and love it. It shoots good, never jams, is light and fits me great!

If it was just my waterfowl gun and wasnt carrying it around in the grouse woods or pheasant field i would get the beretta extrema 2 hands down. I think the sbe2 kicks a little to much for me when shooting 3 1/2s.

Also the Browning Silver is a good high end gun to be looked at.

Lower end the Stoeger 2000 is a less expensive auto with all the guts and workings of a Montefeltro. The Franchi I 12 is a work horse, I have not heard much about the new S&W but looks and feels nice.

Personally stay away from the Verona (semi auto, stack barrels another story) and Charles Daly lines they do not have a good reputation for reliability.

Best bet go out and shoot them and find what ya like.

Just bought a Benelli M1-Super 90 last fall and used it all season. Very light, reliable gun that fits me like a glove. Also very easy to take apart and clean (including the action and trigger assembly.)

If you are willing to drop a fair amount of money on a gun, one of the best ways to shop is walk around a couple of stores and pick up all the auto's without looking at the price. Odds are the one that comes up the best will be the most expensive, but you never know. The brand and model of a gun is pretty insignificant if it doesn't fit you.

I just purchased the SBE II after years of "tire kicking". It is hands down the best gun for me(in the upper tier of guns). I know it is pricey, but I have been hunting with a Remington 1100 for the past 12 years. Amortized out, the price of the gun is nothing and now I'll be able to throw more out than the little 2 3/4" shells. I think you have to shoulder and feel the gun that molds to your style. The SBE did it perfect for me...Good luck to you

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
