Need Help Deciding on a M1 or SBE


Recommended Posts

I need help on deciding which Benelli I should get a M1 Field or a Super Black Eagle? I hunt Turkey, Ducks, Deer, Ground Hog, Pheasants, Rabbit, and Squirrel. I am looking for a 12 gauge, Timber HD, and 26'' Barrel. I am leaning towards the M1 Field.Please help.
