Benelli does not make entry level.

What? they do make cheap shotguns.....

Not semi-automatics, which is what the OP is/was looking for. The cheapest SA Benelli makes is the Montefeltro, and MSRP on that is over $1100.

I use the Miculek 930 for 3 gun. Mine is a little fussy on ammo, a friends isn't. The cheap Walmart Federal gives me failures to fire, looking like a light primer strike. I replaced the hammer spring with a spring off the 10/22 and it didn't eliminate the problem. When I tried the cheap Winchester super x, white box stuff, the extractor would rip off a piece of the rim and leave the hull in the chamber, grrr.

The last two years I've run Winchester AA with no problems at all. Winchester has been running a $2 a box rebate during the summer, so I stock up and it doesn't end up costing much more.

The 930 also need to be cleaned regularly. Not a big deal.

I guess patience is a virtue. I just ordered a new 930 from Grabagun for $351.79 + $7.99 shipping.

Thanks again everyone for your responses.
