I was able to look at the Beretta a300 ultima and the Franchi Affinity today. Both seemed like solid guns. I was not a fan of the synthetic a300. I would give a slight edge to the Franchi.

I’m trying to find a CZ 1012 to check out.

That A300 Beretta is mostly Beretta by name only. They outsource the parts on the lower tier Berettas (I’m a Beretta fan and owner btw) and you are paying more for the name than the quality.

You could also check out Remington’s V3. Cabela’s had some new old stock on the rack about a month ago. It’ll run circles around an A300 and come back for more. Softer shooting too. The softest actually and it shoots everything but 3 1/2”. The main downside is that Remington, as we all know, has been out of business and new production/support may or may not exist as we would like in the future. The shotgun, however, is solid and hard to beat at the $550.00 to $700.00 price point.

The CZ deserves a look. I like CZ on the whole and their support is wonderful.

You may want to consider buying a shotgun that fits you. You will shoot it much better if it does.

Cannot emphasize the importance of this too much. Acquiring a shotgun that fit me better increased my skeet scores instantly.

ICBW, as I don't hunt, but my understanding of pheasant hunting is a S/S, O/U, or semi-auto would be equally suitable. A pump, perhaps not so much?
