Well i've played around with a Vinci, shot a sbe2, and while I haven't seen or held a maxus I have shot a silver. Same thing right? Note sbe2 soft recoil? NO. Loud? YES. Now personally I love the Vinci. But it's so ugly. I love the silver. Very pretty gun. Between the maxus and the Vinci I'll take the Vinci for duck and maxus for everything else. Sbe2? No I'd take another gun.

the vinci is basically this years 870 or 887. it is very reliable and doomed to too much success. get one!

I have not shot all of these and normally shoot an 870. However, I hunted with a $1000 Benelli this fall and must say that it is an awesome shotgun and really made a noticeable difference in success. The light weight and low recoil allowed me to stay on target and shoot again like nothing I have ever shot. If I missed a pheasant or duck, the recoil was so slight that I remained with the bead right on the target for an instantaneous follow up shot. In a flock of ducks or geese, I was able to get great shots off while they were in perfect range. It is my brother's gun and my other brothers who all hunt pheasants, ducks and geese continuously all claim he puts them to shame now that he is shooting the Benelli.

I'll take the Vinci. I can't imagine needing more than 3". Totally reliable. Minimum felt recoil.
