I am contemplating trading in my Browning Gold Stalker 3.5 +$290 cash for a Benelli M1 Field.

I have shot skeet with a Benelli and I can do as well if not better than I can with my Browning.

I already own a Benelli Tactical Shotgun that I like.

Is the quality really that much better than everything else and will it pay to have commonality in weapon function between hunting and tactical weapons?

I am also contemplating trading my Bushnell Yardage Pro 1000 yrd model and my HK USP 40 + $200 for a Benelli M1 field 20 ga.

What do you guys think?

Question is, should I or shouldn't I.

It sounds like you may be getting the short end of the stick.

Look around at:

Gunbroker (http://www.gunbroker.com)


Gunsamerica (http://www.gunsamerica.com)

You can usually find some good deals.

Good luck!

NIB Benelli Super 90s can be had for around $850. Unless your Browning is really shot out, you can probably do much better.

Good luck,

The sale price on the Benelli is $750+ Tax so I am getting about $500 for my Browning.

I just don't know if the Benelli is that much better than my Browning.

What do you think?

A Benelli that shoots a 3 1/2 mag rarely if ever jam, that alone is worth it to me.
I have a Black Eagle, sold my Browning, I think a smart move on my part.

My concern is for the future.

Looking at the Blue Book Benelli used to make an older version of their inertia system.

The value of these shotguns has gone down significatly due to Benelli no longer supporting these guns with parts.

I don't want to get into a situation like that with the current generation of Benelli's.

I figure the Browning will always have spare parts and accessories available but I don't know for sure.
