    any suggestions? I've found a SBE (new) for $899 but could also buy a SBEII for less than $1000 (new).

    Is there that much of a difference? and if so, what is it? Is it worth it to pay the extra money for the II?

    ComforTech stock, improved trigger guard, improved cycle tube, crio barrel.
    Yes, spend the extra $100.

    Yes, if you also want to add a slug barrel the slug barrel for SBE and SBEII is exactly the same but the SBE will require that you buy a new fore end (about $100.00). The SBEII on the other hand does not require a new fore end to fit the slug barrel giving a potential saving to you of at least $100.

    Just curious, where are you able to find a new SBE II for under $1,000?

    Yes - get the SBE II. It's worth the extra price for most buyers.

    That's why there are some great deals out there on left over SBE's right now, because the SBE II's, even at a higher price, are out selling the SBE's at most dealers.

    So is it worth it to pay for the camo, especially for duck hunting? I've gotten mixed reviews on the black vs. camo and its ability to fight off rusting (durability).

    I've just got a dealer who owes me a favor and cut me a super deal.

    I have a black SBEII which has seen it's share of rain & wet. While it hasn't rusted up, for some reason the "finish" hasn't inspired confidence in me. Little telltale signs here and there that it WANTS to rust. (under the slug barrel sights for instance) I'm not familiar with camo finishes; primarily because to me they take a $1,400.00 work of art and turn it into a kindergarten finger painting ... but I think I read a military study on camouflage where the face, back of your hands, and black silhouette of the firearm are the most visible and most likely to get you “noticed” at any distance. The study would indicate that you should cover or paint your face and hands ... and that a camo firearm would probably be an advantage. SO ... if the camo finish fights off rust better than the black and is sturdy; from a strictly functional standpoint; (personal esthetic preferences aside) it’s probably the better choice.
