Is this statement coming from your first hand experience of the quality of a Remington 11-87 a Beretta 390, a Charles Daly, a Mossberg, and a Stoeger, or did it come from a Beretta rep to your friends friend, to your friend, to you???nickspnick said:Both the Remington 1187 sportsman and the Beretta 390 are made the same way not the very best components but still high quality. Better than Charles D, Mossberg, Stoger.
But to the question at hand: Choose the one that fits you best and know that either will likely have a service life well beyond your expectations.The Rem is made of cheap sheet metal. I think the Beretta is a better made gun.
LOL You summarized it pretty well. I have a Remington 11-87 Premier and it is very well made with nice attractive wood. I also have a couple of Beretta AL391's (one sporting and one field) too. The Berettas are a slimmer design most noticable in the forearm. Both the Remington and Beretta are well built and will last a very long time. The Remington has a steel receiver while the Berettas have alloy receivers. Not sure about the AL390.Fish Springs said:Pretty much nonsense:But to the question at hand: Choose the one that fits you best and know that either will likely have a service life well beyond your expectations.The Rem is made of cheap sheet metal.

If the Beretta chops you on the cheek bone or the Remington does not allow for your eye to align with the rib you will be unhappy, shoot poorly and have to make some adjustment.
I've owned and shot both--no problem with the function of either gun nor thier manufacturing. Berettas chop my cheek bone and that is not good for consistant mount and scores.
Sign me short necked fat man and shooter of Remington 1100s :shock:
