    Trying to decide on which model y'all perfer and why?

    I'm leaning toward the M1. However as I understand it from another thread there may be some cycling issues for lighter loads and the M1.

    The shotgun would serve me as an informal skeet gun and for dove and quail.

    Thnaks in advance for your opines.

    Rusty,

    Montrefeltro is slightly lighter and it holds 4 rounds in longer forearm rather than 3 . I went with the Montrofeltro, wood rather than plastic. Best, Robert

    I'm kinda toying over the same thing for when(if) I go to south america. I think right now I am leaning towards a 391 Sporting 20. It weights more than the normal 20 ga. so it hopefully will be easier on my shoulder.

    Drundel, Don't forget the 4 shot Mag extension will add weight too. Best, Robert

    Robert II:

    I asked my buddies who have been to SA about using mag extentions and none of them do. That kinda makes me wonder...

    I have not been there, but I have heard that they are useful when the birds are hot and heavy. I am planning on one for my 20. The 4 shot extension is already on the SBE and I love it!!. Great for all non hunting restricted events (Crows and Jays disagree). Best, Robert

    Rusty Knight -

    Two totally different guns ..

    fit and comfort should be your first concern.
