    I'll be watching this thread, I just 'lost' my Gold Hunter to my grandson - Ha! I really wish that Browning would consider a real wood stock for the Maxus. I would most likely already have one, if they did.

    Browning has had a lot of years to work the bugs out of the Gold, and from the write-up in American Rifleman, the Maxus looks a lot like the Gold, with improvements? I like the fact that Browning did not reinvent the wheel with the Maxus. I've gone through the B-303/390/391 and R-1100/1187 programs, so I know, from experience, that nobody gets it right the first time.

    Bruce Buck, says this about Auto's, "Autoloaders are like sheep, they don't like to be alone, and they know when they are..." Good thing, one gun is never enough.

    IMO,
    Kip

    I have been shoping for a new duck/goose gun too. Was going to get a Benelli Vinci but just can`t deal with the safety button in front of the trigger. The 3" Maxus is looking better to me, and lighter than the old Gold.

    Shoulder all your choices and buy the one that fits you the best. Nowadays all of the top end auto's are very good guns. I purchased the Vinci and it is the best auto I have ever been around. It truly is a dream to shoot and there is nothing I don't like about it.

    It`s going to be tough picking between those two,threedeuces , might come down to who has the better price at my dealer.

    Have a friend that bought one in 3 1/2", already sold it. He could not stand the recoil.

    A light gun coupled with a powerful load such as a 3 1/2 inch shell will always equal heavy recoil...The only thing that will tame recoil is mass. It may be lighter than the Browning Gold but it will kick more because of that fact..

    I will never understand the trend to light 12 gauges and 3 1/2 inch shells. Every manufacturer makes them. You use those shells for waterfowl or turkey. Neither requires a light gun to carry in the field all day. If you have to walk in you can put them on a sling. The only use I can see for a light 12 gauge is pheasant hunting and then not a 3 1/2 inch shell. Heavier guns swing better and recoil less. It is funny, Americans think the lighter the shotgun the better but it better be able to shoot the biggest shell you can buy. Lighter is only better if you have to carry it all day.
