I recently bought the m3000 max 4 28". Out of the box needed cleaned up from the packing greese. Took it out to shoot clays I ran 100 rds. of winchester 2 3/4 target loads operated flawlessly. I do not have the recoil reducer in the stock the gun does not need it unless shooting 3 1/2. I also ran a box of federal target rds. threw it still the same result, and also patterned it out with fiocchi 3" number 2 w/ Carlson mod choke tube, it kept a better pattern than with the choke tubes that came with it. The choke tube threads are berretta/benneli. As a addict of duck and goose hunting this gun will do the job. (five *****)

I bought one for Christmas. I sold all of my chokes and shims on ebay for $55 and ended up buying a Carlsons extended range choke for ducks and a Jelly Head for turkey. I will say that it is a great gun. It won't cycle the light federal 2 3/4 shells out of the box. It might after a break in period. But it cycled the slighly heavier 2 3/4 winchester low brass loads no problem. I stuck the recoil reducer in with a flat head screwdriver for duck season. It helps a little when shooting 3's and larger but won't cycle low brass. It cycles great everytime while duck hunting. When you first receive the gun, be sure to wipe all of the grease out of it. Mine had a ton and would have frozen in our winter temperatures. The ONLY con I have with this gun is that's it's a little heavier than other auto's especially with the recoil reducer. It alone adds almost a pound. Not a big deal though. And the release button is quite stiff. But it is a great gun especially for $650 which I paid for it. If you have a budget and want a GREAT gun, I'd say buy this one.

I bought one for myself as a bday present...lol. Anyhow i took it duck hunting the day after and it was a slower day. Only had two birds work...both got shot. I got one of the ducks..only shot twice. Cycled flawlessly, obviously not much help only shooting two shells, but i've heard nothing but good reviews about it. Only bad reviews are it wouldn't cycle out of box because of factory grease. Wasn't a problem for me shooting blindside 3" #2, but i cleaned it after the hunt
