Yes I see that. Rarely a need to use 3 1/2" shells. And besides, my 887 nitro will chamber those if I need them.

Love my Browning Silver Hunter.
Whichever you go with, if you are planning to upland or waterfowl hunt, or bust clays, make sure the gun fits you properly. I don't miss (much) with the Browning, but can't hit crap with my grandfather's 12 ga pump. The fit of the gun (stock) really makes a difference.

No love for the Ithica XL900 in 12 ga.?
I picked one up at a local GS a while back. Seems like a well built gun, but haven't been able to find much info on it. This one was built in Japan before they moved their production to Turkey, at which time the quality began to suffer or so I'm told.
Anyone have any info on this model?

Benelli M4. Great for clearing buildings and for turkeys too!

Who says evil "assault weapons" are not used for hunting?

Maine 2015:
55 Yards- my first bird





Ohio last Spring:

Both of these were close shots, about 20 yards or so.

a field hunt bird



a deep woods mountain ridge hunt bird




Edit:

BTW, it does reliably cycle light skeet 1 oz. loads. Not at first it didn't but after being "broken in" with slugs and buckshot, she eats ANYTHING. Just so you know.

I've got to get in on this!
As a youth coach, hunter and clays shooter, I've tried many guns. My absolute favorites are the new Remington Versa Max (3.5") and the Remington V3 (2 3/4-3") guns. Both have a revolutionary new gas system design that has removed ALL the parts from the mag tube! They now use a simple piston system located just under the chamber. Gas is routed straight down to these dual pistons and they move the bolt. BOTH guns will fire ANY 2 3/4-3" shell (Versa Max will also fire 3.5") INTERCHANGABLY. EVEN light, 1 oz target loads! Benelli's won't cycle 1 oz loads. Gun writers have tested both models and declared them "the softest shooting semi's out there..." I own both and they are what they say they are....great! They have been out long enough that all the early-release bugs are gone! The Versa Max is priced with the A400's and Benelli SBE's (about $1000-1600). The V3 is priced (about $900-1100) with the A300 and is a much better gun. My two cents!

See, this thread is now a mess. The main purpose for OP would be wingshooting, which requires a different stock setup than home defense, turkey hunting, or deer hunting. Most of the shots for deer, turkey, and human will be shots at targets on the ground, where a stock with less or no drop at comb would be ideal to help reduce muzzle climb after firing. Meanwhile, try shooting an overhead bird that is flying directly over you with a straight stock with no drop at comb. It is tough. The drop in comb allows the stock to be in the right position when the gun is in different shooting positions.

With all that said, there are a couple of other threads on here about the best waterfowling shotgun, wing shooting shotgun, etc. for the OP to get some answers to his question.

The M4 is a nice gun, but I wouldn't take mine waterfowling, dove hunting, or clay shooting. Then again, I happen to own other shotguns that fit those niches.

In semi, I have my wife's Beretta, and my Benelli Montefeltro. Bot are very nice, lightweight and smooth guns. I think the Benelli is a bit lighter and maybe a bit easier on the shoulder, but both shoot flawlessly.
