Uh, I don't think its that cut and dried. 391 Beretta is superb and is a quality, state of the art auto loader. Don't take my word for it. Check it out...and not just in trap.

Super X 2 and 3 aren't "TRAP" guns as such I don't believe. They're field guns, but nothing says they can't be a Trap gun if that's what you want them to be. Just use what works and have fun.

Nothing beats a 391 or an 1100. Both come in trap configurations and outshine all the rest by a large margin.

Shoot safely, well and often!

Hard to argue with the millions and millions of Rem 1100s built over the last 48 years.

This comes up about every 4 months. Based on guns used for trap and sporting, the 391 by far. I prefer the feel of an 1100, but their actions aren't as dependable as a 391. An SX-1 is a great choice too if you can find a good one. Parts aren't as accessable as a 391 or 1100. They are about a pound heavier than a 391.

If you aren't going to shoot 20,000 rounds a year, the 1100 is fine if you clean it regularly.

Most reliable would have to be proven thru time and use i would think. And to me that only means the 300 series Berettas or the Super X 1's

aiken1:

It's illegal in 39 states to use "auto loader" and "reliable" in the same sentence.

sissy :)

PS: The proper terms are automaybe and jammamatic.

Being a owner of Beretta and Remington Target Autos, Beretta hands down.

* AL 391 Urika Trap Optima

* AL 391 Urika II Sporting Optima

I'm looking to buy a 20 ga. Urika Sporting 30" if you know anyone who has one for sale.

My Remington Sporting 12 is the biggest POS I've seen Remington put their name on.

Remington auto and pump trap/skeet history is what it is because Beretta didn't go that route with their shotguns. They dominate now in the SC field. Where's Remington today?

Winchester? Where are they today, no where. In Brownings back pocket. They don't but out a true trap auto today. SC they have a version.

Back when the Remington 1100 was all the RAGE...BROWNING introduced superior design and function semi-auto that was just too expensive to manufacture and sell at a profit. The Browning 2000 was made in Belgium and assembled in Portugal in the late 70's. Excellent quality and craftsmanship...a real "SLEEPER" if you can find one in nice condition!

KS5 shooter- post a larger picture of that stock please- and who did the work?

Really are 1100s so bad? I dont think so

Having said that the 390s and 391s are awfully good guns

I wonder if any 1100/11-87 frame has fired a 1/2 million shells-- I bet there are some out there

regards from Iowa

He put them down an 1100 because the didn't have a Beretta or Browning. They didn't have a trap model. Remmy target guns are glorified field guns.
