I've decided I would like to try 3-gun IPSC. I already have the Benelli M2 with an 18.5" barrel and a Nordic Components +5 extension tube (8 in the tube + 1 in the chamber). No doubt about it - this is a nice shotgun! I've got $1200 invested in this gun, but I have not been able to find speed-loaders for it. I can now pick up a practically new Saiga 12 for $550, then spend $? to get it upgraded for 3-gun IPSC. R & R Racing will do a top-end upgrade for $1300. I'm pretty sure that's on the high-end as far as price goes, but assuming I went that route, I'd have a finely-tuned Saiga 12 with a 10-round mag for $1850. In my opinion, my M2 is a much better shotgun than a stock Saiga 12, but without speed-loaders, I think I'll be seriously disadvantaged in 3-gun matches. I think an upgraded Saiga 12 would be a much better choice for 3-gun IPSC, but I'd have to fork out up to $650 more to make the switch. I'm interested in people's opinion on which direction I should go.
