    I am looking for an auto 12 gauge. What do I need to look for in specific models? And what models would you recommend

    I'll 2nd the Stoeger 2k.

    Benelli tooling and many Benelli parts. I've got one and love it. Super light and shoulder's nicely. I've been through many cheaper autos -- Mossbergs, Remingtons, Winchesters, S&W -- and I find the Stoeger to be the best of the bunch.

    I don't have a picture of mine, but here's what it looks like:

    Crap -- my school's firewall won't let me pull up picture props.. Anyway, it's the one up top: http://www.stoegerindustries.com/firearms/index.tpl

    Buddy has one, I am not a fan. It jams all the time. He has had it to 2 gunsmiths and they both said it's common for them to jam.

    Nothing I can think of. For the money, I honestly think it is the BEST autoloader money can buy.

    I am willing to spend 1K, but I would like to spend less.

    Note: the gun will not be used for hunting. Home defense / fun

    benelli M2, awesome gun/s. You will have no prolems with any benelli. My local gun store has one of these for 849 new, with the pistol grip stock.

    well I looked at the Stoeger 2k and was not overly impressed. They did not have any benelli's there so I need to find a shop that carried them. The action was nice on the stoeger but it was not really set up for how I want it. Are there a lot of aftermarket part available for it??? If so it would still be an option
