I've been looking at a semi-auto shotgun for a long time. When I began my search I decided that I would buy the gun I wanted (no matter the cost) so I wouldn't have to compromise anything. (winners don't compromise!)
|Benelli Super Black Eagle 2|
|Remington Versa Max|
What I find neat about the Versa Max is that it uses, what appears to be, a version of Benelli's ARGO Gas System. The ARGO Gas/Piston System can be found in the Benelli M4 which has been adopted by the Marine Corp. The other thing is that in addition to a similar gas system; I find it difficult to discern a difference in the Versa Max bolt vs. the Benelli's which is simple to disassemble and clean. To go a step further; the rib profile on the Remington is identical to the Benelli (which I like).
- I like a gas driven shotgun
- I like the ease of cleaning of the Benelli bolt
- I like the profile of the Versa Max (rib, forearm, and overall aesthetics)
- I need to shoot one before I buy one... anyone have one?
- Where am I going to get $1400?
I guess I still have to save up a sizable amount of money for whatever gun I decided to buy. I will use that time to see if any of the shotguns listed above sway my opinion or if new guns come onto the market. As of right now it is the Versa Max's race to lose.
