7 year warranty is a plus
The gun was way too long for me. Inertia driven and light. Light and inertia driven——serious muzzle jump not to mention felt recoil with 3.5” shells especially . However if the gun fits you that may not be as severe. And if going from a pump to inertia,also not as significant

I researched Benelli sbe 3,big issue of shooting way high is known problem

I settled on a beretta a 400 extreme plus

I had a Benelli Supernova before so the jump was not that big of a difference. Nothing kicks as much as a pump!

I went back and looked again ,it was the 14 and 3/8” length of pull that was main issue for me

I think the gun is a good value at 1000

For sure upgrade from supernova. I had the original nova even with recoil reducer and added weight in forearm still severe recoil.

So the affinity should be better on the shoulder even though inertia driven
