You might want to consider the Kel-Tec KSG, It's a pump, but can't be beat for firepower, especially if you load it with the 1-3/4" mini shells.

My list:

Beretta 1301 tactical
Remington versamax
FN SLp
Vepr or Saiga 12
As others have said, it depends on use--but Scar's list is solid for SD purposes. I'm partial to VEPR because of my affinity for Russian arms. It's also one of the only decent mag-fed shotguns available.

But, if you've ever shot skeet or trap with a combat shotgun next to a hunting shotgun you will begin to understand the beauty of the traditional hunting design.

If Beretta and Benelli went out of business, I would be buying Fabarms autos and Caesar Guerini o/u shotguns.

Kind of like if Ford/Lincoln went out of business, I would be buying Chevy/Buick/Cadillac. It would take quite a while before I would be buying VW or Chrysler stuff.

If Ruger were to go under, I would start buying Sako rifles. Hell, I've been thinking about changing rifle loyalty and jumping to Sako, but will stick with Ruger for the time being.

So, to answer your actual question, I think Fabarms is a very nice auto loading shotgun.

I generally shoot a Browning 725 or Berretta 391 semi but the Mossberg will make a great "guest" gun. Check it out.
Yeah, the Mossberg is a good "guest" shotgun. Exactly right. Kind of like the 1960's era Browning Auto 5 that I have in the safe. I have not shot it in 30 or so years. It used to be a "guest" gun, but now that I have extra Berettas, I let guests use them and the Auto 5 is a nostalgia gun.

So, where does that put the Mossberg? Behind the Beretta auto and the Browning o/u for sure.

I love my SPAS-12 for the nostalgia/unusual/cool-factor, but really the Benelli M4 is the choicest semi auto shotgun.

I wasn't all over the place enough. Knew I should have thrown in some Hondas, Toyotas, and Ferraris and then some other products to the list. Maybe should have listed different makers of mozzarella.

I really busted out laughing once I caught on how you "Fabs Rolled" me.
Check out this shotgun review...

We will see how the Mossberg 930 Pro Sporting works out after a couple thousand rounds thru it---would like Mossberg to be successful with this--they are made here...The 3-gun guys seem to make the JM Pro 930 work ok

I asked that at post #2. I began to think that it must have been a dumb question.
