Benelli M2 leads the pack but I wouldn’t sneeze at a Montefeltro.

Franchi Affinity is alright as well.

The Benelli 20ga Ultralight is a great option for upland and doves....

I always prefer a beat up, dogged out anything that my uncle, dad or grampie left me, at least keep the hump back shotty, sell everything else at .20cent on the dollar to Silver Eagle Pawn so I get a sleeve of Copenhagen and make my Polaris RZR payment this month.

Inheritance baby shotguns all the way

Sorry, I can’t help the OP

maybe something Turkish at Academy 🤪

Benelli is an excellent pick. The Franchi line of shotguns is owned by Benelli and is similar but without the fit and finish of the Benelli. Regardless, I would go with the Benelli.

I don’t think there’s a better upland gun than the M2 in 20 gauge.

I wish they hadn't discontinued the V3.

That would have been nice in 20 gauge.

Don’t tell anybody, they’ll laugh at you.

If I was going to only have one primary gun, I’d probably look at the Beretta 400 or a Benelli. But I’ve got a safe full of shotguns and I like to try new things, so I Bought this Viper Bronze 20 to see what the commotion was about. I like it. Trigger sucks, but can be fixed. It broke the recoil spring at about 500 rounds, had a replacement in 2 days. 5 year warranty. Plus I bought it from Buds, so got the $25 lifetime warranty. The consensus is they’re good. Time will tell. If it fails, I’ll sell it back to Buds at my original cost and buy another experiment.

500 rounds and it already broke.

Sounds like a winner.

Well, MKIIs were made from the early 80s to the early 2000s so I highly doubt that experience was comparable to the 20 gauge.
