Shooting the same loads, my 12ga SBE has appreciably less recoil than my 12ga 870, enough so that I'm always surprised by the 870's jolt. And I see no reason why that wouldn't also be the case in 20 gauge. But be advised that when outfitting camp guests with a 20, none I can recall who have been offered the option of a gas operated one has chosen to use my Montefeltro 20 after firing both it and the gas operated 20 on our clays range. The difference between Benelli's inertia system and a gas one is apparently significant.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
