    Beretta A400 I have in camo with 26" barrel very fast, light and reliable. It doesn't have a raised rib so lines up for me better.

    all of them are great guns. Pick the one that fits and feels the best. I dont mean shouldering them in a tee shirt. Take the clothing in that you wear duck hunting and see wich feels the best. I almost bouth a shotguna few years ago that was fantastic at shouldding until I put on my jacket, and it went form OMG to WTF in .2 sec. And if you can fire them even better.

    I've had a SBE for about 3 duck seasons now and I love it. Only had it not fire once and that was this year hunting a sandy river bank. It was snowing the temp was about -5 with about a -25 windchill. No ones gun worked consistently that day. Everything from my gun to my buddies beretta and 870.

    Buy the one that fits you

    I agree with 43x, buy the one that fits. I personally own the Benelli as my main gun but have a Beretta as a back up or for days when I looking for a little less recoil. I prefer where the safety is on the Beretta because I do not have to alter my hand position to take safety off(I'm 6'3" tall) but my Hunting Partner is 5'4" and has trouble taking the safety off. My wife runs the Maxus 3" version and loves it. No problems with any of the guns but when time to clean them thoroughly, prefer Benelli hands down!
