I'm going to SOF this year and need a shotgun that is legal. Heres the specks, Barrel no longer than 22",no optics,Tube can't be past 1" of the barrel,Has to be 12 ga.,and cannot weigh more than 1lb. over stock weight.
I am leaning towards a Benneli M1 S90.

What would you use??

How about a Jackhammer shotgun Look in firearms photos at top of page for link to picture of FA 12 ga.

Seriously, the Benelli is the firearm of choice in action matches, though I've seen some fast pumpgun shooters also.

Sounds like you have already done your homework and picked the perfect gun. Pick what is right for you. For me , I'm a Remington 870 person. Right now using a Remington 870 Marine Magnum, 6 + 1, side saddle of four, tactical sling. I like a 18" barrel. I don't have ghost ring sights. They really help on the longer slug shots.

I'm with Ned on this one, my choice is a Remington 870HD, surefire light, side-saddle and buttcuff.

I would say go with a 22" barrel and a magazine tube that is even with the barrel. Also get one of the magazine tube clamps.
