Two of the guys I hunt with use these. One the Beretta, the other the Remington. Both use them hard duck hunting and are both pleased. They shoot a lot of 3.5" waterfowl loads in each. Any gun model can get a lemon though.
After watching these two, if I was on a strict budget, the Remington would get the nod. My guess is the Beretta has less felt recoil though.
* BTW, I use a new model Browning A-5 and the rest of the crew use Benelli SBE2/3s. All the guns seem to function well consider the abuse we put them through. It is not uncommon for each of these guns to eat a case of duck loads each season, plus dove loads, etc.
