Hey folks,

I have the choice of buying a new Mossberg 930 SPX or a like new but used Bennelli M1 Super 90. The Mossy is $559 and the Benelli is $825. Money is somewhat important but, in the long run, I wonder which one I will be happier with. Whichever I buy will be mostly an HD weapon but I do intend on shooting it regularly.

Looking for experience and opinions on the pros/cons of the choice.

Thanks!

I have a M1S90, and love it. It always works, it's a fairly light shotgun (I mainly use mine for hunting), and well, it just plain rocks.

I like it so much, in fact, that I'm somewhat looking for a second one to tac out for a social shotgun.

Now, to be honest, I don't know much about the Mossberg...but, I can't recommend the Benelli highly enough.

Definitely the Benelli.

I work at a trap field every monday night and pull sporting clays every 1st and 3rd sunday of the month (as well as being an avid shooter of both.) I wouldn't trust a mossberg semi-auto to hold up reliably for consistent shooting. Their pumps last forever though.

Benelli has a very solid reputation for quality and longevity. It's definitely worth the extra cost over the Mossy.

If cost is not a factor I'd agree with just about everyone...go with the Benelli...and I say this as a guy going to look at a Mossberg 930 SPX tomorrow morning.

I have a 930 SPX and in my case it has been 100% reliable. I have no experience with the Benelli. I don't think you would wrong either way though. These semi-autos are wild. The closest thing to a machine gun I have ever shot. I mean you want to talk about the maximum amount of lead in the air in the shortest amount of time. Wow!

You'll love the 930 SPX!

You'll love the Mossy 930 SPX. I absolutely love mine! The 930 is excellently made and designed. You won't be sorry. I know that the Benelli has a good reputation, but the 930 has just about everything that you pay a premium for on the M1, but at a much more resonable price.

Bad-ass on a budget:
