I'm looking for a semi auto 28, does anyone have one they like for any particular reason? I'm leaning towards an Ethos but want to shoot one first if at all possible.

I have a Legacy 28. Awesome for birds. Not particularly fun for clays.

I couldn’t agree more.

It took me a while to figure out the purpose of the Legacy 28, but it was absolutely clear once in the field! Great hunting gun.

Could you add enough weight to it for sporting purposes? I assume the Ethos is just as light.

IMO no. it's just not the right frame. I think the Ethos might be a bit heavier.

TBH once you get near $2K for a sporting 28 i think the 686 gets the win. Big bonus is you don't have to bend over a bunch to get your empties for reloading.

I'm waiting a semi auto to help with recoil though. My nephew wants to shoot my SBE but the recoil smokes him.

If you want to reduce the recoil you will need a gas gun I would think

I have a Browning 525 Field in 28 gauge. I enjoy using it for busting clays in my backyard, and it is a joy to shoot planted birds with over my GSP.

I was considering adding a Benelli Ultra Light 28 or Ethos to the mix. Would either of these have any more kick than my Browning 525?

I know they weight a bit less (525 is 6 lbs. 13 oz.), but my thought is the semi-auto function would absorb an offsetting amount of the recoil.

My opinion is Benellis recoil very much like a fixed breech gun. So at that point you're just talking weight.

Update, got an Ethos. It is incredibly fun. I put 400 rounds through the first day and had 0 issues. My mother, sister, and an 80 year old all shot it and loved it. There was too much recoil for an 8 year old though.

Congrats! They are a fun little gun to shoot!

Recoil from a 28 ga??

Yes.

My 28ga legacy is punchy. At 5lbs it doesn’t take much of a load to do that.

Yeah, but it’s nice to carry all day
