I like it!  I carried a Remington 1187 around for years hunting pheasants until it finally occurred to me that it was pretty heavy.  I've always been fond of semi auto shotguns and wanted something lighter.  I like the Benelli inertia operated action..  Simple, reliable, and easy to maintain and clean.  It's definitely fast handling and I think it's ideal for pheasants, especially in the thick stuff where I like to hunt.  With my favorite load of 1 3/8 oz #4's it is the Hammer of Thor!

Ease of cleaning is a big thing that doesn't get noticed until you have a gun that is genuinely easy to do so with. One of things I love about my Benelli M2 is it takes five minutes to break down and five to reassemble.

Do you have the 24" or 26"?
I'm gonna get one, just torn between the 20Ga and the 12Ga.

Beware that the lighter weight can mess with your aim. I know it sounds weird but for some people it causes real problems and they wind up going back to a slightly heavier gun.

Get the 12Ga.

I have the 24" barrel.  I wanted to stay close to the overall length of my 1187 which has a 26" barrel.  The action on the Benelli is about an inch longer than the gas operated action of my 1187, so the Ultra Light with a 24" barrel is close, in overall length, to my 1187 with a 26" barrel...hope that makes sense.

I bought mine strictly for hunting pheasants, so it was 12 gauge all the way for me.  Adjusting to the light weight of the Benelli was not a problem for me.  I think I shoot it better than my trusty ol' 1187.  My 1187 weighs right at 8 lbs.  The Ultra Light is 6 lbs 1 oz.

I hunt chukar and quail more than pheasants.
My main chukar and quail gun is a Ruger Red Label 20ga 26" - which I have shot pheasants with.
My waterfowl/pheasant gun is a Stoeger M2000 12ga 28" - which is has been a great reliable gun,
My thought was, why have two 12ga's that are very similar ( I know the Benelli is way nicer)?
Plus, there is no way I would take a nice ultra light waterfowl hunting....

Beretta 391, 20 gauge, regular field or Teknys, 26" barrel! Softer shooting, light, but not too light and cheaper than the Benelli.  I have both and prefer the Beretta!
