Other than Benelli, what is your favorite/funnest shotgun you own?


Recommended Posts

had this conversation with a friend today and was wondering what anyone else might offer up as their favorite or funnest shotgun?? it was close between my Ithaca 37 DS slamfire but my Molot Vepr 12 factory folder in SBS form came out on top..after my M4, of course.

Just the remnants of a cheap old Davidson 16ga. I call it my Yosemite Sam relic. Those of you old enough to remember the Luney Tune cartoons (Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam, Wile E Coyote ect. ect.) years ago  can relate.

I've only got two other shotguns models aside from Benelli.

Remington 1100LW .410 with 4 barrel set (they were all fixed choke in that era)

Savage 24. I've got several of these. The one I use the most is 22/410.

 

I've got a couple others that I inherited. I don't really care for them but keeping them out of respect.

My beloved Caesar Guerini.

The shop didn't have a left handed one so I drove up to the factory in Maryland to pick it up. When they brought it out I knew immediately the drive had been worth it.

Hopefully that middle one (SPAS-12) is a safe queen. It still has the original safety on it. At least the one on the right has it. I bid on one with box and papers and upgraded safety right as COVID took over a year ago and for some reason I didn't get my auto bid in right and I didn't get it. Within weeks, the prices had shot up a grand. I'd still like one of those, as well as a SPAS-15.

i totally understand.  when you have that many, doesnt hurt to let a few go at a nice profit.  i liked the SPAS just for the 'cool factor' but it was big, heavy and could be finicky in pump mode but it sure looked bada*s.  i have a bunch of shotguns and the SPAS wouldve been at the bottom of my shtf go to gun. i like my Ithaca and i have a 12 inch SBS 870 USSS contract overrun that is just awesomely balanced.

Some of my favorite non-hunting shotguns.

The Spas-12 is one of the mechanically clumsiest shotguns ever designed. I authored an Anatomy Series Manual for the Spas-12 Improved Trigger Group, i.e. cross bolt design compared to the lever safety trigger group.

FYI-The Franchi Spas 12 with lever-style safety is dangerous! 

Still searching for  a Spas-12 "diverter" muzzle device.
