The standard weight browning doesn't have hye goofy shell feeding issue. The light is like the beretta shotguns. It seems like it takes three hands to load one until you get the hang of it.
I own and shoot both. The extra long Remington cases have hung up in both guns. My sp-10's as well as the Browning golds have both failed to feed those long cases. The guy that was having trouble with his 1 shells/4 Remingtons ejecting was having that problem because the factor loaded ammo was too long! The shells will feed just fine,it's when they are fired that they become too long and they will hang up.
I have had Remington empty hulls that were too long as well. I also trimmed them and the problem went away. Not a good thing if you are shooting factory ammo and nothing you can do about it except load reloads or other ammo and make the long cases your third shot.
Better yet.... If you don't plan on re-loading, just buy Winchester ammo as they are never too long.
They are both great but the Browning has always been easier to clean then the Remington. This is the sole reason I would go with the Browning.
As for parts? Yuo just call Remington. They have every part you could ever need. Parts are not an issue. The gun really doesn't break many parts anyway. Neither does the Browning. I wouldn't buy the lite model for the ammo loading issue as well as the fact that you can buy a used Gold for less then 700 bucks on Gunbroker most of the time.
buying a 10ga shotgun with the bore shot out of it is like buying a 458 Winchester magnum that needs a new barrel.
Most guys buy a 10 and quickly find out that they can't kill birds any farther with it then they can a 12ga and sell them.
It's painfully simple to find a near new used 10ga auto.
Just don't make the mistake of shooting small shot and you will have a gun that will add 15 to 20 yards to your range. I shoot nothing smaller then T's and if Bucks run gets the TT's back in stock this year, I will never shoot T's again. Jeff
Duck hunters chat.. a place where people who never shoot past 40 yards explain how to do it better to the guys who do it all the time.
