Soft-kicking semiautos, a mutant pump, the return of the A-5, and more.

Of intense interest to those of us who got a sneak peek at the gun last year is the new high-capacity Performance Shop M2 3-Gun (above), which boasts a ComforTech stock, extended magazine, fiber-optic front sight, and many more features that appeal to competition shooters. Price: $2,699.

Also, there’s a Performance Shop Super Black Eagle II. While not all new by design—but geared specifically for waterfowl hunters—it’s essentially a Super Black Eagle II with a tuning kit and aftermarket mods. Price: $2,899. Polished guts in the gun and a custom trigger are the start, followed by Rob Roberts Custom Triple Threat chokes. Each gun features a Crio barrel with a polished forcing cone to provide consistent patterns while reducing recoil. Also new are Super Black Eagle II models featuring Mossy Oak Duck Blind camo and a new 20-gauge M2 with Realtree MAX 4 camo—a first for a 20 gauge from Benelli in waterfowl-specific camo.

Are you planning on buying a shotgun this year?
