I am an over and under fan but the Xtrema will shoot every thing you throw at it from 2 3/4" 1 oz light Trap/dove loads to the 3 1/2" 2 1/4 oz #2 turkey loads with out any cycling problems and
changing springs or gas ports.
Just my opinion

Good advice from above. Have an 870 that has over 200,000 trap rounds through it. Can't go wrong with the old 870.
I see you're from Texas so what we refer to as an auto jammer up here in the cold would not apply to your location. My experience with auto's is too much maintenance.
If not a 870 - I'm with J E Custom - go over and under.
