Anyone had the chance to compare these two shotguns? And which do you prefer? Thanks! Benelli=24" barrel (with extra choke tubes) Rem. =26" both Realtree Camo. Thanks! :)

both are good shotguns but I like the 870, much for the same reason I like the glock. its cheap, reliable, and every one sells parts for them

Well, I went ahead and bought the like new Benelli in 12ga. 3.5" chamber also today so I guess I will soon find out which one fits me the best since I already had the 870. Thanks! :)

you will not be disapointed in any way shape or form with your choice on the benelli. i have a plain jane benelli nove pump gun, (one year before the new stock:mad:) and everyone that touches it falls in love with it. mine is the 28" 3.5" barrel. not that the other choices are bad at all,but the benelli is a top notch gun.

Of my pump guns, my relatively inexpensive Super Nova is my favorite. It is a very soft shooting 12. And it is extremely comfortable. Benelli hit a home run with their Novas and Super Novas.

Both are great shotguns. I have both and prefer the Benelli over the 870. It is a smooth shouldering and shooting gun.

Neither for me, thanks. Don't care for 3.5" maggie numbs. Otherwise, I'll take an 870.

Not that I'm biased of course...

I really like my Benelli Super Nova. I have no intentions of shooting 3.5" Magnum shells but it's good to know I could if I change my mind. Not too many shotguns have chrome lined barrels either.
