I have been shooting a Remington 870 for 7 seasons now of duck hunting and upland game. Although a great gun its nothing impressive it just simply works. I have been thinking about upgrading to a SBE II, M2, Extrema or maybe a higher end remington, browning or winchester. I really like the SBE II but the price tag is a bit steep for my liking. Which has lead me to look at Franchi's and Stoegers since both guns use the same action as the SBE II but are assembled at different locations using diffent components besides the action. Anyone with experience with all the diffent guns your input would be much appreciated.
