Out of bax shotgun

Recommended Posts

Just a quick question. If I wanted to buy a semi shotgun and only add a tube extension what would be the best option? Do any have an acceptable lifter off the shelf?

As far as non custom shop guns go Versamax Competition is ready off the shelf.

I'm a Benelli guy myself, but if you really need an off the shelf option the 1301 is probably the best. The M3K would be my choice for a lower budget gun, but it lacks the refinement of the Italian guns.

I am VERY happy with my M3000 and I would by another one if mine ever dies.

If you only want to add a tube and go shoot a match and not have to tinker on it get an A5.

I shot a 1301 for about a year with just a tube and a hi.viz front bead added. still shooting it with a few more mods, but was pretty darn good out of the box.

Don't know why I didn't think of this earlier but there's also the FN SLP Competition, an out of the box ready to go gun. Hot option for a couple years and now you can probably get one used and way below retail.

How do you plan to reload? Load 2/4? Traditional weak hand? Or?

IMO. Stoeger M3K has an acceptable lifter out the box.

I'm planning load 2.

I have about 4K through the Predator shotgun now, and it is as close as you are going to get to ready out of the box. Uses a 1301 gas system and several other good features from other shotguns.

The M3K is another good one to just slap on a tube and go.

None of the others people mentioned have the loading port anywhere close to ready, including the Benelli 3G version.

Depends on how aggressive of a porting job you want. Benellis is better than the m3k and the JM doesn't have any at all out of the box, neither does the 1301. Dunno what a predator is

Haven't had any lifter bites on my 930JM yet, but I do have a polished welded lifter on the way mainly...because I can.

That's not correct. look at a 1301 tactical compared to a 1301 comp.

The Benelli M2 3Gun Edition is $2500 retail. Calipornia price for a Stoeger M3K is $700. At that price difference the Benelli better be better than the Stoeger.

That logic is severely flawed. Just because something is more expensive, does not necessarily make it better.

What are you saying? Take away the cost, the Benelli M2 3Gun isn't better than the M3K?

If it was $700 I'd get the M2 3Gun over the M3K.
