I've never heard that before....I know there are piles of shot out loaner Benellis in Argentina that never had that problem...Benelli is a great shotgun just be aware that after many shots you probably will need to take it to a gunsmith and get the slide rails cleaned up. You will experience the breach not closing completely , failing to eject cleanly and breech hanging up even after you clean it. My son and I have had three of them do this. Not an expensive fix but frustrating trying to figure out.
+1 for benelli, we do a ton of waterfowl hunting in the sac valley and most all of our group shoots benelli with no issues, keep em clean. The others shoot beretta and SX4s they're also great gunsWhat do you all think the best semi auto shotgun for shooting everything from big birds to clay pigeons would be?
