Ok I am looking at possibly getting a 12 gauge semi-auto soon..So I am looking at getting suggestion on guns to look at.Basically this shotgun will be used for bird hunting..everything from dove,quail,pheasant and waterfowl..I figure the Mossberg can become my turkey gun and deer slug once I get a slug barrel for it. I just can't go through another season of waterfowl and dove with a pump action..So toss your suggestions my way..Also gotta be on the cheap side ie around the $500 mark.. Has to be able to chamber 2 3/4", 3" and 3 1/2" shells..

I was thinking a Benelli maybe...if I can afford the semi-auto...Also looking at maybe a Mossberg 935...I do like my 835 just need a ssemi-auto..I know mossberg makes some nice waterfowl/turkey combos as well..Plus my 835 choke tubes would fit it as well..

The Mossberg 935...will not eject 2 3/4" it is set up just for 3" & 3 1/2" shells.
The Charles Daly Maxi-Mag Semi auto will chamber all 2 3/4" 3" & 3 1/2" & is in the $500.00 mark.
The CD will eject 2 3/4" 1 1/8 oz loads & some will eject 1 oz loads. CD will not hold it but to only 1 1/8oz loads.
Remington has 1 too in the $500.00 range.{ It looks too me..Like plain crap!!!}
Smith & Wesson also makes 1 around $500-$600 and is for 3" & 3 1/2" only- like the Mossberg 935.

For the $500.00 range you can't beat the Charles Daly.

You will have to be willing to spend $700.00 for a 11-87 Remington 3 1/2" Semi Auto.
Benelli are $900.00 & that is just for a 3" Magnum...$1200-1400 for the 3 1/2" Super Black Eagel 2.
The Beretta is $1400-1600 for the 3 1/2".
The Browning Silver is $900-1000. The Gold is $1000-1200. Both are 3 1/2"
The Winchester Super X2-are $800-900 & the Super X3 is $1000-1300.

That will cover all the 12 GA 3 1/2" Semi-Autos.....Okchunter.

Gauge when I have the cash ie our tax stimulas money I'll drop you a line to get me a price...I figure a 26" barrel I can use for various applications without it being overly heavy,...I hate bird hunting with this long ass barrel on the mossberg..
