I shoot a Browning Citori Waterfowler (3.5") for 5 stand and sporting clays as well as upland hunting.
It was getting a bit beat up duck hunting, so I bought a Stoeger 3500.
(it is supposedly a Benneli design made in Turkey)
I ended up shooting several hundred rounds thru it and it performed to my liking.
@ $600 it was a good deal and warrants a look.
I use a Tempest Gold modified choke.
It has a synthetic stock and a matte finish on the metal.
It was ideal for hunting in rain, mud, snow and handled bangs against boat gunnels as well.
Just my "frugal" opinion.
