They are pricey these days, hence the vote for a Remington. The point is shell versatility and semi auto.
Not really. Academy is selling the 3901 synthetic gun (same as 390, but made in USA) for $579.00. About the same as a Remington synthetic 11-87.
I think the 390 / 3901 is a far better gun than the 11-87. Not everybody does.
I actually traded my Remington 11-87 Premier in on a Beretta AL390.
