....I LOVE my 1187's.
Beretta fit is about as close to Remington fit as you can get on the shotguns that I have handled. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a new A300 over a used LT20 that hasn't been made in many years, but I would prefer a wood stock over synthetic. I really don't think you would be disappointed in either. Remember a LT20 only has a 2-3/4" chamber and the A300 will have a 3" chamber.
The A300 is a completely different gun, much heavier bolt. I would save up and get an A400.
Interesting. Some online reviews indicate the A300 Ultima is a FAST cycling semi auto.
In my experience, the A300 Ultima cycles fast.
I used 391's for many years and loved them. When it A400 came out I thought the lightweight bolt made them look and feel cheap. I did not know what to think about the rotating bolt. But once I got one and started shooting it, I realized the A400 is more reliable, has less "bolt pulse" and reduces recoil better (even w/o the K.O. system).
The A300 is the 391 action but with an A400 gas system, and with the K.O. system. It is a great gun for the money. However, to me the A400 is worth the extra money it costs, and I am not referring to the improved chokes, colored receivers, etc.
Like I said, it depends on how much you are going to shoot it. If you just want a hunting shotgun, I would say gt the A300 and spend the money elsewhere. If you are going to shoot a lot of clays, I would get the A400.
The A300 Ultima is really a nice gun with nice features at its price point...I own both ,...
True. I still like the A300 Ultima that I purchased. Keeps going and going! Very light recoil, even with 1350 fps 1 1/8 oz rounds. 1200 fps or less....gun does not move.
Well- looks like I need to start shopping for my best price.
the ultimas will go as fast as i can go , and somehow I feel a lot better about myself beating them up on the clay trail , and saving my A400 for more special times or the hunt.....what ever you decide you wont be disapointed....Good Luck...
Two different spacers included for length of pull.
The people posting the info, may not even post on the correct item they purchased.
.....and probably did not read the directions that was in the box.
The review that comments about lack of shims to adjust to cast for left hand shooter illustrates that the owner doesn’t really understand what the do or don’t have. A left handed cast shim is simply a right handed cast shim flipped over.
