I cant say about the Stoeger as I have never owned one but I have owned the other two. Very poor choice in guns imo. Much better choices out there such as the BPS or 870 Wingmaster.

The M3500 has less parts I believe. The Remington is a good gun but I have herd nothing but great things about the M3500. I plan to pick one up soon and give it a try. I am not going to comment on the benelli, my mom said if you can't say anything good don't say anything at all.

Good luck,

My buddy and I both just currently bought new guns. I bought the SBE2 and he bought the Remington supermag 870. And the second time out to the duck blind the ole 870 started jamming and wouldn't shuck the shell, finally got it to work and bout 15 mins later what do ya know same exact problem....now my benelli...not once did it miss a beat.

I've seen all three you've mentioned fail... Not to say that none of the above are good guns. I'd go hold a few and shoot them if possible. When you get the right one in hand you'll know it. If I had to give a personal preference of the three it would be the 870.

I love a good running 870 but today you just never know if that's what you're going to get in an off the shelf gun. If you prefer the feel of an 870 I'd say go ahead and get one, BUT don't buy it right before a big hunt and take it as your only gun. Get one in the off season and run it through its paces. That way if any problems arise you'll have plenty of time to send it in and get any bugs ironed out. You don't seem to see as many reports of issues with the 3.5" chambers guns though.

Why a 3 1/2" Super Mag? A lot of unnecessary recoil and absolutely no gain in performance, when compared to a good 3" 12 ga. load....

I've never known a 3" Wingmaster to give trouble.
870 Express can be difficult.

As far as pumps go, the nova is hands down a better gun than any 870 made in the last 10 years.
Winchester has a new pump, the SXP I believe, that is really nice.

I'd go with a franchi affinity or beretta A300 outlander over the M3500. Cost a little more, but built better. The affinity is a benelli M2 clone and the A300 is basically a 3 inch version of the extrema 2.

I got a new 870 supermag this fall and it wasn't ejecting fully on follow up shots the first day I had it out. I came from a 3" chamberd gun and there is a possibility I was short shucking the gun. I took it home have it a good cleaning and have more aware of bringing the action ALL the way back and haven't had a problem since. I haven't put a ton of rounds through it to see if it is operator error or the gun. I was going to buy a supernova or nova, but none of the dealers had them in stock when I purchased.

To follow up from my last post. I took my 870 supermag out today and no ejection problems. It was throwing spent shells fine. Ran some 3 1/2's and 4 other brands of steel without a problem. I know now that my first problems were user error.

I have an 870 Express that has never let me down. I just bought a Stoeger M 3000 this past Monday. Hunted three days with it in Arkansas. Absolutely love the gun. My opinion, you've got a price range set, just figure if you want pump or semi auto.

I just bought a 870 Supermag the other day, shot it enough to kill 6 honkers with it and the season ended... No problems with 3 or 3.5" mag shells...I bought it when my 70's model wingmaster broke an ejector, proving nothing is fail safe if it's mechanical.
I tryed to convince myself to get a supernova, it's like shouldering or driving for that matter, a chevy nova... What a club, simply couldn't do it , and glad I did not - To each their own.
