Thinking about buying a Vinci. Any suggestions or feedback? How important is camouflage?

You can safely assume flannel is not a Benelli fan!

Busted. :D If you want to go the non-gas route, I'm sure the Browning A5 would be a much more aesthetically pleasing choice and more deserving of the cost.

I'm not a Benelli fan either but I have some friends that I hunt and shoot with thatlove them.  I would get the camo more durable in the field and looks cool.

I do not own a Vinci myself but have inquired about their reliability with a well respected gun expert who claims they perform very, very well.

I just completed my second season with the Vinci from dove, turkey, duck and goose.  Performed flawlessly in all circumstances.  Easy to clean, reliable and well worth the money.

Have shot a Vinci for three seasons now at the Wister Wildlife Refuge. About 11 hunts per season.  Have had only one shell fail to eject properly.  I'd like to think that's a pretty good record given the sticky clay soil and salty conditions there.  No rust to boot.  Go for the camo model, it gives you extra protection against the elements.

Personally, I prefer camo for a duck gun. The camo dip is a (small) layer of protection. That being said, I don't care for the Vinci. I think Benelli makes fantastic guns, but the Vinci is just too modern looking for me. That being said, the ducks don't care what you shoot, so if it appeals to you go for it. I have a friend who shoots one, and he loves it. That being said, I use an SX3, and their are plenty who don't care for it.

I got a Browning A5 last year. Works great. Pretty long barrel, but also super lightweight

It seems to be a little know fact anymore but we've been killing ducks with gloss finished walnut and shinny blueing, wearing Carharts long before camo came about and it is all marketing in my opinion....
I would not waste my money on camo, I would however invest my time in the blind and keeping your face hidden.

Ditto for turkey hunting.
