I have been looking into shooting three gun for awhile but right now I do not own a shotgun. Any advice on a good auto loading starter for three gun?

Rem 1100 with a DMW easy loader (without an ez loader you can forget it)
FN SLP
Mossberg 930
Benelli m1s90 or m2
Win SX2
Rem versa max

or you could join the dark side
Saiga 12

I'd suggest the Stoeger 2000. Its based on the Benelli system but much cheaper ($450ish)! Got to see one in action this past weekend and it worked and functioned as well as my M1 that cost 2x. If I had to do it over again that's the route I would go.

I'd go with 31540 24" Black Synthetic 45-1/4" 6.7 lbs. $509

For the money FNSLP is hard to beat it comes ready to compete. I really like my Benelli M2 but you need to spend some money right out of the gate to be competative. You can with the SLP but you don't have to.

Forget the Remington 1100. I have seen so many chock its not even funny.

A nordic tube is all you would need.

Don't get me wrong I love my M2. I just sent it to Accurate Iron for some mods to the lifter and loading area, also having the carrier done so I can ghost load. The local matches I compete at don't have a limit on the numer of shells in limited division (which is really tactical optics and limited put together) So I have been running a 10 round tube and one in the chamber for 11. Now when it gets back I will be able to run 12.

Just picked up a 930 JM if it lives up to the hype, if it does it will be a great value. Going shooting tomorrow to find out.

Actually, I think I ended up picking up the 24'' M2 after seeing your setup IIRC.

I decided to run the 9 round tube. Almost all of the matches around here run a tac ops rule of no more than 9 in the gun at the start. So I load 9 on the line before the squad starts the stage, put one in the chamber when im up, and then load one at the buzzer (if needed) I have the XXL nordic cap, so if I find a match that doesnt have that rule I can always have one in reserve.

Up here we have USPSA rules matches and one club that shoots more matches than anyone else that has their own variation of IMGA rules. Then there is my match which mostly follows USPSA except for scoring which I use IDPA scoring because I find it easier.

To the OP and others in the same boat. There's a reason for this.

Used they're not that expensive and you're not going to wear a Benelli out. Period.

I have a Salient Arms custom M2 that shoots lights out but they have all but priced them out of most peoples budget. I would recommend the Versa Max tactical as I have seen them perform very well in matches with little modifications. Remington seems to have got it right this time so you might give them a look.
