I couldn't find a bad review on them. Me and a couple of buddies own them and shoot them a good bit. So far none of us have had problems. I out 500 rounds thru mine this weekend and my buddy did the same. No ftf or dye. I don't think you could go wrong with the 3020. Is it a montefeltro or an m2? No but there's not 500- 1,000 difference in them either

Tvone posted that Defender Outdoors in Fort Worth has the 3020 in both the 26" and 28" barrels for $449 IIRC, they are a great bunch of people to deal with.

I went and found his post on them:

I just purchased one today. Max 5 camo and 28" barrel. Hope it's as good as the reviews I've been reading! Love the way it feels and handles.

I've had one since December of 2015. 26" with Realtree APG. I absolutely love it!!!! Light, swings nicely, comes up just right every time after I adjusted the shims. Kicks a little bit, but it's still a 20 gauge so it's really not that bad.

I purchased a 3020 2 weeks ago for my 13y/o as the extra Benelli 12ga I have is just too much for him presently. He is a fairly decent size kid for his age 5'9, 140#, he is left eye dominate so he shoots it as a lefty. His 3020 20ga is the black 26" model. It came with spacers but so far it fits him well.

I completely disassembled it and stripped it clean, then lubed and put it back together. I pulled the plug rod out as we shoot crows and want the extra rounds in the tube.

We have run several boxes of Win AA #8 through it and he is knocking down the clays from our back deck. It is a very mild mannered shotgun with these loads and it has functioned flawlessly and cycles quickly. The packing oil was thick and sticky before I stripped it down.

I may end up buying a 12ga version for myself.

We paid $499.00 and side by side next to my Benelli Nova 12ga I can see similarities.
