Winchester Super X2. Not sure about using it for deer hunting, but it will take care of everything else without fail. Had mine for about a year and after about 2500 rounds, I love mine.

Good luck.

Buy a good used Browning Auto5. I've had mine for 41 years and it never gave me problem one. Dad bought his first Auto 5 62 years ago and it never failed him, either. Grandfather bought his 77 years ago and it still shoots as well today as back in 1926.

Another vote for the Winchester super X2, I have had mine for about 2 years and It is one of the best valuse for a do-it-all auto loader. Absolutly NO problems and will cycle anything you put in to it.

I agree with the others about the SX2. You may have a tough time finding a new one for $600.00. A few other good models would be the Berreta's 390,3901,Pintail/ES100, Franchi 612, Weatherby SAS.
I also recommend to stay with a 3" chamber for all around use.

Remington 1100 and you'll have $ left over for shells and accessories.

Walmart Sam Walton Edition is $599.97 here.

Regular ones will be less.

1100 all the way. You can pick up a brand spankin new one for around $400, and get a slug barrel for it too. They're cheap, reliable and parts and accessories are easy to find. With minimal maintenance it'll last 'til your grandkids are too old to shoot it.
I'd tend to agree with the suggestion of the A-5, but I really think that an all around "one gun" purchase should be something still in production. The A-5's, while still widely available today, are becoming collector items.

Shoulder a few guns and see what you like the best. You'll know which one to get.

I'd recommend a used Remington 1100 with screw in chokes. You should be able to find a nice used one for under $500. Fixed choke 1100s are often below $400. (New ones go for $700.) They've made well over 3 million Remington 1100s, so you'll have your pick of guns This is a solid, reliable autoloader. The 1100 is still in production, and parts are inexpensive and easy to come by.

Another vote for the 1100 here. The new synthetic stocked versions are mid $400 range here. Wood stocked used versions can be had in the same range or less.

Get on GunsAmerica.com and see what $600.00 will buy, you might be able to buy one someone has already tricked out and save time and money.

Stoeger Model 2000-camo model MSRP $495.00. It is licensed to use the trouble-free, light weight inertia recoil sytem used on Benellis. It is not front end heavy like all gas operated like Super-x2. If you ever picked up a Benelli,you know what I mean-they balance perfectly in your hand, because they are not loaded down with gas piston parts, which just adds to up-keep."Keep it simple stupid" applies here! Only seven parts all located in internia bolt. Shoots as soft as any gas operated without the weight and head-aches .Now you can own a Benelli without the Benelli price. Go to Benelli's web-site. Click on Stoeger and then click on Firearms heading. Now finding one
is what I don't know about? Worth waiting for though!

Another vote for the Stoeger 2000. Had mine for about 2 months and love it. Wood is alot nicer than I thought it would be and it has not had one failure sience I broke it in.

Franchi 612 or Remington 1100, both great guns. The Franchi stock can be adjusted for drop and cast.

Guest, you are so misinformed it's laughable--the recoil guns cannot shoot as soft as a gas gun, "inertia" or whatever fancy name you want to tag it with--and that weight out front is a good thing, keeps your swing going smoothly--shoot some magnm loads through that lightweight non-gas (inferior) auto and we'll see how you like it--there's better out there

Mr Laughable,
I have owned a Benelli Super Black Eagle since 1995 and have fired 3 1/2 " magnums exclusively through it in the goose blind and turkey woods firing around 200 rounds a year along with my friends' using Remington SP-10 and 11-87 Super Magnum 12 gauge-which I have fired. They all recoil the same ,but my Benelli swings and catches up to those fast ducks faster than any of those slow gas jobs. My gun weighs a little under 7 lbs because I had it customized by Ballistics Specialties to a shortened 21" barrel. Over the years everyone of my friend's gas autos would not function when the weather got cold and wet.One by one since my friends shot my Benelli-they have all bought Benelli Super Black Eagles.Most recently three of my friends bought Benellis at Gander Mountain in Monroeville,PA for $995.00. Right in there with the cumbersome Super-x2 and 11-87. My gun has never missed a shot. Also I carry my Benelli through four or five states each year for turkey-I wouldn't go back to those heavy autos or pumps for nothing! I would guess your "information comes out of a magazine- not use" If you want to see misinformed I would suggest for you to look in the mirror!
