When you say “run it wet”, does that mean you oil and leave wet the magazine tube under the piston? Inside the barrel cup? Other areas? What’s your lube of choice?

Not all beretta's run on an inertia system.

Right - the 301, 302, 303 series was gas-operated and were/are sweet shooting shotguns. I have an A303 which is a terrific gun - as good or better than the older 1100's (which I have also).

I have heard of Winchester S/G’s of old that are well thought of on this forum but the newer guns don’t fare so well in the opinion polls and wonder If Remington’s fall in this cagetory.
From personal experience, the newer 1100s are, for the most part, not very reliable and fit and finish is nowhere nearly as good. The exception I am aware of is the Competition Synthetic which is a fine gun.

I concur with the other poster who recommended "the older the better".
