Can't say anything about the traditions, I will check it out. As for a good semi-auto 20ga with 3", the remington 11-87 has a proven track record as a dependable gun. Beretta also has a great shotgun some would say that they are the best.A AL391 Urika in 20ga woudl be a great gun. Just some guns to think about.
i actually own a 1100 remington now that will only shoot 2 3/4 inch shells it alright for most of my hunting but i would like the 3" capability. if i was paying more attention i wouldn't have bought this gun at all i would have bought the 11-87. but since then i have fallen in love with the sythetic stock. i do know that Benelli makes a 20 gauge M1 in synthetic, however i have shot both the Benelli M1 and the Beretta 391 that you have mentioned and i like the Beretta more do you know if it is available in a sythetic 20 gauge version?
