The rib on my 391 sinks down below the receiver and I don't get a good site picture. On the Benelli the rib is raised. I can see down it better.RandyWakeman said:You mentioned that you already have a 391 and it is "kind of awkward to shoot." How so?
More popular for what use? If you are talking about clay shooting,well, Beretta`s are the most popular clay guns. Benelli`s are not clay target guns,no matter how hard they try to convince you of it. The Beretta is quite reliable. I know for a fact that there are Dove outfitters who use the 391`s as house guns for customers to use. Dove hunting in Argentina for instance can require a couple of thousand shots in a couple of days. A gas operated gun is what you want,unless your shoulder is made of steel. The Benelli will obviously function longer between cleanings,no gas system. Where the Benelli really shines,is in its ability to shoot in very "wet" conditions,which the Beretta does not like at all. Just a note,I shoot all my gas operated autos "WET". I don`t mean wet as in water,I mean as in Breakfree CLP. I slather that stuff on the whole gas system,let it drain off,and go shooting. It keeps all that burnt powder in suspension,making cleaning the gun super easy. When the gun starts the hiccups,I just spray more CLP on,and it shoots like I just cleaned the whole gun again. Amazing stuff.takdriver said:
