Reliable enough, yet not in the same class as the Beretta 390, 391, A300, A400, SX 2,3,4. Combined with extra cleaning required, made it old school compared to what is out there now.

My advice buy a Remington Beretta what ever fit you the best then put 5,000 rounds through it to get use to it.

Buddy of mine split the barrel of his beautiful 1100 from the muzzle back 3-4 inches one morning in the goose field. Shooting garden variety steel loads. The geese were flying exceptionally well that morning, too............. Wanna see the wind come out of a guys sails RIGHT NOW ???

I have a Remington SPR-453 (Baikal MP-153)
It cycles trap loads to turkey loads no issues. The finish sucks and the gun is heavy as hell. I had (and still do have) a 870 Wingmaster wanted an auto and my wife bought it for me as a gift. It’s not pretty or light but I shoot it really well. I’m sure a used one could be found cheap. Gunsmith told me it would last a weekend, when I lost a spring cleaning it. I’ve had it since 2008. It’s never jammed and I hunted waterfowl pretty heavy back then. Lots of dirt and ice etc.

I also have my grandfather’s A5 light 12, I’ve never shot it but going to get some Bismuth for it so I can use it Pheasant hunting.

Others I have shot include an original A5 sweet sixteen, Browning Maxus and Benelli Ethos. Those three belong to my Dad so I’ve shot trap with them a fair amount. It’s been so long since I shot the 16 I’ve forgotten what it’s like. Of the two newer ones, I liked the Ethos better.

As for me, the last shotgun I bought was an O/U and now I want another, more expensive one.

If I was buying a 12 gauge auto it would be a Benelli or Franchi affinity. If I was buying any auto, I’d buy the new A5 Sweet 16.

Since Benelli’s stolen patent ran out ;), there’s a lot of Turkish and Philippine inertia semis out that are probably built at least as well, but have straight barrels, while being considerably less expensive. wink

I'm putting my MC312 through its paces this fall. Did well on both geese and ducks recently. Points where I look and has been feeding 2-3/4" and 3" waterfowl shells just fine. Hopefully that will be enough of the recommended break in for target loads next summer. Price can't be beat at $400 Canadian. Quality is excellent. (Why am I thinking I should buy another at that price? smile )

I agree, and I have owned or own most all the popular semi-autos, and now I have 3 versions of the Winchester SX-3. They are nothing sexy to look at, but just keep working and never a failure with them, in my experience.

Not you^^^, but….

It cracks me up how some of the folks that love the Super X2/3 guns, turn around and badmouth the BGH….when the SX2/3 is just a BGH in a lower price point version. BOTH are just as reliable/durable. ;)…but they’ve often not owned BOTH, just the SX.
