I just picked up my new A400 last week, and I love it! I have already shot about 500 rounds thru it, I can't put it down, it is just so fun to shoot. I have shot better with it than I have any other shotgun. It seems to just shoot where you are looking, and you can barely even feel the recoil. Not only do you not feel the recoil but the gun stays on target after you shoot so the few times I did miss I was able to quickly make an accurate follow up shot. It is very expensive but if the gun preforms, like it does now, for several years it will be well worth it.

Just cashed in on bass pros deal. 1700 on sale for 1600. If you buy before the 18th and put it on a bass pro card you get 17% off! I just walked out with a brand new SBE II for $1328 before tax. I had been on the fence on upgrading forever to this gun, that deal pushed me over the edge.

No not yet. I have shot about 400 or 500 2 3/4" shells and about 100 3" without a single issue. I'm going to shoot some 3 1/2" this weekend but I have no doubt that it will cycle them fine. This gun is made so well it could probably handle an RPG.

I applied for the bass pro credit card. That's the only way to get the extra 17% off.

Aren't they all real good guns on that list. Advice would be to go and check them out in store shoulder them see how they point and fit. Ultimate would be to shoot some of those guns. No browning love though?

I bought a Weatherby SA-06 back in may and i have already put about 500 rounds through it and i love it. I shoot it every weekend and i have yet to have a single problem with it ejecting shells or anything. I think with military discount i got it for 500 out the door.

Both of those two guns are expensive, your not going to find a cheap one. I would base my decision on a number of things other than price, how they feel in your hands and on you shoulder being number one. If you can afford one you can afford either one, and remember in a few weeks after your purchase you won't notice a small price difference, so you better get the gun you want.

There is a company in georgia that is selling the a400 for 1400. If you are out of state you don't pay taxes and only 30 to ship

They both feel great when I shoulder them. I want a a400 but can't find them anywhere with a 30" barrel
My buddy has a sbe2 and I hunted with it one time in the duck blind and it felt great. I just never shot an a400. So I'm probably just gonna get the sbe2

Saw the A400 xtreme camo on dicks for 1649, with the KO system, Max 4 synthetic 3 1/2 12 gauge. Hefty price, but think of it as an investment, certainly a gun you have for a long time.

I have an A400 Extreme and my wife has an SX3. Combined 2500 1oz trap loads through them-never a problem! My old Vinci and SBE- several problems per round. Gas is the ONLY way to go.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the guns on your list. I bought a super vinci last year and love it! But it also seemed to fit perfectly for me. Pulled up the others on your list and my opinions were the SB2 fit nice but I know too many guys with it so I went with the super vinci to be different. The versa max pulled up good but the fore end felt like a 2x4 in my hand. Didn't care for that. The a400 also pulled up nice but was the heaviest of the bunch. I own a beretta 391 urika and that has been an awesome gun! Look close at Berettas if they pull up nice. Try the a5 too. Been wanting to shoot that one.
