B vs B for O/U ?

I'll bite why is Berretta purported by some to be more better-er than Browning for O/Us ? What did the furriners know that JMB didn't ?

Both are fine shotguns.

They are built slightly differently, so some people fit a Beretta better than a Browning and vice versa.

And in shotguns, fit is VERY important.

True dat .

But people come in all sizes , so subtle differences in stock dimention should average out . But here in MDS always seeing Beretta being referred as both the standout of their $$ class, and the least expensive "serious" O/U . Why ? Why not Browning, or equal split between B and B ?

When I was looking for an O/U, it was between a Beretta and a Browning. After holding and mounting both, I preferred the Browning over the Beretta. They are both fine shotguns.

P.S. I ended up with a Caesar Guerini and it is mo betta than both the Browning and the Beretta. Just my opinion of course

Don't overlook Weatherby as well, but more retailers carry Brownings and Berettas than do Weatherby.

Mainly because there are more gunsmiths, parts, barrels and models of competition shotguns available for Beretta over Browning.

And Browning customer service is good but slooooooow for repairs if you have to send in your gun. Caesar Guerini office located on the eastern shore I believe.

That's like comparing STI vs SVI 1911s . I am unable to notice much difference, but I'm sure a USPSA Grand Master would.
