I know your biased opinion.
As far as the best semi auto on the planet, I doubt it. Better guns for cheaper or equal value.
Better in your opinion doesn't make it so.
Why does it have to be the best on the planet? Light and a tireless flawless workhorse it what I have found. For me there is no reason to look anywhere else. Do I think it is the best on the planet...I don't care because it's performed the best for me and that's all that matters. UI can't speak to other gas guns because I have only bought one shotgun. I don't need another one. If I shot sporting clays I would buy a sporting clays gun. I hunt ducks and geese with mine and it does the job without any issues whatsoever. Best on the planet? Don't care about that and don't know why it really matters to anyone anyway. Don't like all the negative comments about a terrific firearm.
Obviously you don't have much experience with shotguns if you've only bought one. I'm glad your Benelli runs good for you but your lack of experience in this subject ads nothing other than another biased opinion. Get out and try other autos in the field. It also looks like you've added aftermarket parts to make your gun run the way it should from the factory, Wolff springs and better recoil pad. It's a shame to spend that much on a gun only to turn around and put better parts in it to make it run the way it should from the factory.
There is nothing worse than having to put aftermarket parts in your gun to make it run right, that goes for any brand of gun.
Didn't say I had any issues with it, it ran just fine from the factory, I added them just because I wanted to and found that the bolt slammed shut with more authority and shells fired out of the magazine with more authority. Was that necessary? No. did I like the result? Yes.
I have also shot and held many other shotguns, just never had the need to buy. Whenever a new model comes out and I'm near a shop, I'll pick it up and check it out. Mentally picking it apart as to what I do and don't like about it. My father in law has a bunch of shotguns I can and have tried out as do friends. Why would I have to have bought a large number of brands of shotguns to provide an opinion on mine? Mine has performed flawlessly and does everything I need it to so why would I buy a new one? Strange logic indeed and you also assumed I have not shot others which truly made an ass out of you as the saying goes.
I'm sorry you weren't happy with your Benelli, I'm totally happy with mine as are tens of thousands of others. I couldn't care less what you prefer but it seems pretty clear that you really care what others prefer which is just sad for you. It's my opinion and to me that's what matters. I'm not saying anything about your choice of shotgun but you find the need to denigrate Benelli? Ask yourself why....?
