Hey Everyone!

I am currently using a Benelli Supernova for dove hunting and really like it. I have come into some giftcards and looking at getting a Benelli Montefeltro. Has anyone used this for dove hunting? I am also somewhat looking at the Remington V3.

Does anyone have an issue shooting a shotgun with a stepped rib to a flat rib? Thanks everyone!

as long as you can look right down the rib and not see any rib, just beads. It should be a GREAT dove gun. It probably comes with shims to adjust stock.

or buy my Super Black Eagle II peep

I have a Legacy 20 gauge and I love mine. As far as I can tell it's not any different than the Montefeltro.

For strictly dove or quail hunting I like the Montefeltro. If heavier loads are in the mix such as for duck I'll take a V3.

I have both, hunt dove and ducks with both. The nova is a good duck gun, the montefeltro smokes dove though.

I use mine all the time. The rib is a little different than on most of my guns, but it's never been an issue. Doves or clays, it make no difference - I aim, the gun goes bang, and the bird falls (well, most of the time).

Thanks everyone. I went ahead and purchased the montefeltro in a wood stock.

Next stop is the sporting clay range! Y'all have a great weekend!

Can't get much better in my opinion. Most of the Argentine outfitters use the Montefeltro and shoot tens of thousands of rounds thru em. A very good gun. Simple to clean too. Lightweight. I have and love the 26" gun.
