Ok guys looking for a new shotgun. I have had it with mine. I am looking for a semi auto chambered in 3 or 3.5. Price range from 600-800. Let's keep the guns in this price range please. I like the beretta a300 and franchi affinity. Any information on these guns or others in the price range would be great!

3 B's are the way to go... Berreta, Browning, Benelli

Will be tough to get one of the B's in that price range though. You may be looking at a Stoeger or something like that. Maybe a Charles Daly or Mossberg.

I use Browning Maxus and Benelli Vinci, both in the ~1500 range. I believe Beretta is more, but could be wrong.

If you look around you might find a Winchester super x3 pretty close to that. I found mine on sale for 850 a few years back. It's a browning design made by fn Belgium. I love it. Been super reliable and shoots really well

Sx3 or the a300 are the best in your price range

Beretta A300 shoots 3" maximum and is in your budget
Beretta A350 Xtrema Semiautomatic Shotgun can shoot 3.5" and is closer to $1,000

The A300 is a really nice shooting shotgun and will provide years of service you can pass along to future generations. Shooting a gas gun is easy on the shoulder as well. Plus it can cycle light loads to magnums just fine without changing anything. I've never had a use, need or perceived benefit from 3.5" shells. Birds don't seem to notice the difference.

I finally agree with #Hayraker on something.

Another option would be to find a used 391 or 390...those guns are built for the long haul and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a used one. Matter of fact my duck gun (391) I did buy used.

Stoeger is junk. Get A300 beretta for 700 bucks.

My Remington 11-87 has out performed a Benelli SBE2 on several occasions...

Keep it clean and you won't have issues up

I shoot a Mossberg 930. Paid around $600 for the waterfowl version and after shooting several cases of 2 3/4" lead and a few cases of 3" steel, I've had zero problems. I'm still not sure what I'm missing out on by not having a "B" gun besides the coolness factor.

I just bought a Browning Silver Hunter and I've already taken two limits with it. Great shotgun, just a little out of your price range at $960.00 on Bud's. The Sx3 is basically the same shotgun, if you absolutely have to stay in your price range that will be the ticket. Compare the two though and you'll see a big difference for not that much more coin; seeing as your already planning spending quite a bit.

I hunted last season in sub 0 Temps with the stoeger m3500 and had zero problems when my other guns completely crapped out. Hunted all dove season and teal season with it and lent it to someone on 4 hunts this season without a single malfunction. They are heavy and ugly, but I wouldn't call them junk, at least not the 3500. Mine has a few thousand rounds through it with zero problems.
