  1. Franchi Affinity 3 used PVC plugs in the receiver which is taped as you mentioned. You can remove the trigger group from you gun and use a good quality punch in the proper size and drive them from the inside of the receiver - out.
  2. I see you live in Minneapolis and I thought that was bad Hell I live in San Diego, California. Anyway we have had several communications over the the last several months regarding Benelli's slow delivery of shotguns', I am still waiting for my SBE III left handed model I ordered last April 20th. Normally I wouldn't complain about waiting 4 to 6 months for any quality of anything I wanted but just to let you know I have had written correspondence by email with customer service and have not been offered and explanation for the delay. I wish I would have gone through the Gun Broker website. If I canceled my order I would pay a heavy price according to the gun store I bought it from.

      The Left Handed SBE 3 Max 5 status is as follows:  199 Backordered, 138 in transit,  I think you will see your Benelli very soon.  

      All Benelli as most shotgun MFG are all in very poor shape, some Beretta shotguns will not even be available until 2023.  Benelli is currently a 6 - 9 month company to it's very best dealers like ours.  Small dealer like you chose are 9 - 12 months out on most Benelli models.  This condition is more than likely to continue well into 2023.  

      Our SBE 3 left handers should be in August if you may have a interest.

    SBE 3 Shim

    Your SBE 3 more than is setup from the factory with the B Drop Lock Plate. If your model is a right handed version you will note that the Drop Lock Plate will be noted B DX. The DX represents a right handed cast. You can change the orientation of your cast by using the side of the Drop plate labeled SX. You will then have a gun casted left handed. I would suggest moving your Drop Locking plate to the D locking plate if you want to lower your POA. Please remember your Benelli is designed to shoot a 60/40 pattern high. Benelli tolerance is 1" to 5" at 21 yards. Most guns will be on the lower side of this delta. Please reach out if you may need additional help.
  4. Benelli is moving away from the M2 chassis in SOME segments, the Cordoba, Super Sport have already moved into the Ethos chassis platform which affords the opportunity to utilize the Easy Bolt and the updated two piece carrier latch. The SBE 3" and 20 gauge SBE reflect additional line movement into the updated chassis which speaks to a segmented market. Market segmentation is the process by which firms identify the different portions of the market according to how they respond to different products and features. This is a vital part of markets because the marketing concept requires companies to both understand and satisfy their customers’ needs better than the competition. As such, by segmenting a market, it is possible to identify those groups of customers with similar needs, and specifically target them with products that fulfill said needs. Successful marketing usually occurs when you speak precisely to your target audience. Market segmentation helps you achieve that precision. IMC programs that include segmentation assist in developing marketing messages that speak to your target segments, activities that are geared towards these segments, and clarity around your business that attracts clients like a magnet.
  5. The 3" version and the 20 gauge version are lighter than the 3.5, both are fine additions to the Benelli lineup, some if not all models will and have moved to the SBE and Ethos platform. Would like to hear more about your observation "hybrid of the Ethos and SBE". Both the 20 and the 12 3" are selling well, many educated shooter are just not interested in shooting 3.5" shells, for many reasons.
  6. Please reach out with a PM, I can get you the SBE 3 that you would like.
  7. You will probably need to remove the butt stock to gain more clearance for the trigger group to seat properly.
  8. The Super Black Eagle would be a fine all purpose, there could be other considerations in models if you do not plan on shooting 3.5" shells. Most POI issues can be traced to improper fitting, basic understanding of POA VS POI, and very few 17 model year guns which the barrel stop ring was improperly installed. Most Benelli models shoot a 60/40 pattern high, with that being the standard. Most modern ribbed semi automatics are designed to shoot a pattern higher than the point of aim. Benelli tolerance is up to 5" high at 21 yards. Most guns will be on the lower side of this delta. This means the point of impact will be up to 5" high the majority of the pattern. This assumes that the gun fits the owner, a good fit requires a flat rib. This can be done with the drop shim plate and corresponding shims, cast and drop. Unfortunately most shooters do not take the time to fit their gun properly. Of the more than 900 Benelli's that I have worked on less than 40 have different Drop Shim Plates and shims that were different than the OEM setup. This certainly does not mean the other 860 guns do not fit the shooter properly. Your POI can be lowered by using a larger front sight such and Hi Viz and similar - as well. There were some SBE 3's in the early 2017 that had POI out of spec. This condition COULD have been caused by the magazine tube barrel stop ring that improperly set to spec. The barrel stop ring primary function is to work and assist in alignment of the barrel as it is secured into the receiver. It is vital that these to points of contact are precisely met at the same time, if not the barrel is forced out of position or it is simply to loose to secure the barrel assembly. Most Benelli models do not even use the barrel stop ring. The SBE 3 and some M2's do. 20 Gauge M2's do not use the barrel stop ring. I randomly sample SBE 3's with a laser sight as well as having access to SBE 3's performance shop patterns that were done by Rob Roberts all of which have a POI higher than the POA. The good news is that altering your shotgun’s POI can lead to more accurate and consistent shots.
  9. Second the vote for the SuperSport from the performance shop. This is truly a great sporting clays gun. The price is very fair, these retailed for 2899.99 or better new.
  10. These are very nice guns, shoot great! Just shot one today, sporting clays, 24 out of 25, never shot the gun before.
  11. Here are the detail, there are 66 of this model number on backorder 12 are in transit. Currently Benelli is a 90 to 120 day company, which means I would not expect a gun to come in that I have order to come in for 90 - 120 days. Keep in mind this is not unusual currently. Example: Browning is 7 times greater volume than it ever has been in the existence of the company. To the original question, when did your dealer order the gun? Was it even ordered? We have had several M4's as of late, just sold one of each Black & H2o yesterday. I do have both of these models coming in by the end of May. Please reach out if you would like one of these. 1799.99 or 1999.99 H20. Benelli USA & Beretta have been by far the best companies moving through these challenging times in the industry. (There is another major shift in the market, you will see many guns very soon) Mark
  12. Please PM me, I can provide some insights. When was the gun ordered? Who did you order it from? Did you get confirmation that the dealer of choice actually placed the order forb the gun. These questions would be great information to address your question.
  13. Mike, I am glad you are reaching out to Benelli, great customer service. The purpose of the forum is quite often a place where others can learn and grow in knowledge and understanding. Understanding POA (Point Of Aim) and POI (Point OF Impact) is very important to assist shooters with knowledge and insights that could make them a better shot. Most modern ribbed semi automatics are designed to shoot a pattern higher than the point of aim. Benelli tolerance is up to 5" high at 21 yards. Most guns will be on the lower side of this delta. This means the point of impact will be up to 5" high the majority of the pattern. This assumes that the gun fits the owner, a good fit requires a flat rib.
