For me it would be the sbe3. I shot a Vinci and couldnít hit my butt with both hands. Iíve had a m1 super 90 for over 15 years and I absolutely love the gun. It fits me perfect. There is a difference for sure, so itís kinda gonna depend on you and how it fits. They make great shotguns.

I am still on the original SBE. It's a better turkey gun than anything now due to needing cleaned after a box so it cycles. I have an 870 express and hate it personally. Wingmaster is nice though.

I have a Super Vinci and like it. But I haven't shot the other gun so can't make a comparison.

I like the SBE2 or 3 over the Vinci's. I have/had 5 of them. Aiming point on the Vinci is a little different out of the box than the SBE2. The SBE3 has a totally different aiming point. Set up to aim below the target and shoot high ( kind of like the Vinci, but times 3).

SBE2 is my favorite of all 3. Just traded a brand new one to a fellow member a few weeks ago.

Funny think is, I also have the Beretta A400, but still prefer to shoot my Remington VersaMax. With the dual gas piston like the M4, it has a lot less recoil than any other duck gun I have ever shot.

The inertia driven guns feel much better when you mount to your shoulder. I will admit, the SBE2 or 3 is 3 times better made than the VersaMax.

I have the Benelli M2 Field in Realtree Max-5 and I love it. Fits me perfect and shots anything you put in it. Including a shell covered in mud. It was an accident in the moment of a flurry of dove.

I have to say that my old 870 (pre 1999) super magnum express is the ONLY gun out of my 15 shotguns I had absolutely no issues with.
Now the new plastic 870 arent good

I haven't had any problems with my SBE II, but I'm also really interested in the A400. I have a 20 gauge Xplor and love it as well.
