Benelli M1'a and Montefeltro's are currently very popular with South American guides and shooting hosts to provide their clients who don't travel with their own guns. I've heard of serveral outfits in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, etc where thousands of doves, ducks, and pigeons are shot daily - regularly shoot Benelli's with no problems and very little maintenance!
Plus, one of my acquisitions in the Spring 2004 will be a 20 gauge M1. I plan to use this new 20 ga 5 3/4 pound gun mostly for upland birds in Idaho and Washington, and even on Chukar - provided they don't flush any further than 30 yards from the muzzle. But then the probb is mine and the gauge - not the gun!
