  1. Matt, Be aware that the 3.5” may not be needed any longer due to hybrid shot shells. http://www.hevishot.com/ http://www.bismuth-notox.com/ http://www.kentgamebore.com/ http://www.federalcartridge.com/default.asp?menu=1&s1=3&s2=1&sec=1 Therefore, you can look at SBEII, M2, Cordoba or Sport2. Only you can decide which gun feels more balanced and allows you to quickly sight in on the target. Sorry, but any of the choices listed above will suit your needs. Regard threeshot
  2. I cannot locate the magazine extensions on Benelli's website. Any links to the law/restriction for shotgun capacity? When did this pass? I tried Google searching and cannot find anything on the ATF website. [ 10-25-2005, 03:04 AM: Message edited by: threeshot ]
  3. Here is an interesting post regarding why Ithaca went out of business. http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?p=384631#384631 I agree that if you have never shot the older models, you don't know how smooth the action can be when you rack the pump. I've heard that only the Winchester 12 might have been smoother.
  4. Older Ithaca guns are the good shotguns. I would say guns built pre 1980's or 1970's. Ithaca did not do themselves any favors with loyal gun owners that were trying to buy their products or services. http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=19916
  5. The first several times removing the forearm is going to be tight and slightly difficult. Just apply more upward pressure while turning the forearm back-and-forth. It will come off. The solution for the difficult bolt handle removal is to use an old pair of shoestring rapped around the handle one time and pull straight out. To ensure the proper operation of the shell carrier, let the bolt slam shut versus easing it closed by hand. Glad you enjoy your M2. Regards threeshot

    Yes I can per the manual's instructions.
  7. bwana1, You need to install Adobe Reader. You can get it free from the following link. http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html Regards threeshot
  8. Differences between M2 and SBEII that I am aware of are listed below. No mid bead (M2) vs. mid bead (SBEII), slope on the receiver vs. a more hump back receiver on the SBE II, the trigger guards are shaped a little differently. Both guns use the same mechanics and barrels. When the SBE II is stripped for cleaning, you have access to the trigger mechanism because the top of the receiver is part of the barrel. This allows easier cleaning of the receiver. Also this makes it easier to remove the trigger assembly for cleaning. Regards threeshot

    Check the shooting club rules before you spend your time removing the plug. Here is an example of one club listed below: [1]All Shooters must sign in and receive field assignments BEFORE shooting. [2]All guns must be kept UNLOADED with ACTION OPEN at all times. [3]NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES prior to or during shooting. [4]Ear and eye protection is REQUIRED for all shooters and personnel on the field. [5]No more than TWO shells (One for Trap singles and handicap) may be loaded at a time. [6]Load guns ONLY when on the shooting station and ready to shoot. [7]Guns must be unloaded and action open BEFORE leaving station. [8]No shot larger than 7 1/2 allowed. [9]For safety reasons, hulls on the ground become property of the Club. [10]Maximum vehicle speed on Club property is 13 MPH. Your gun manual will explain how to remove the plug. However, for shooting trap, skeet or sporting clays, you will not have more than two shells in the gun and in some cases, you are suppose to have one shell in the gun when on station.

  10. Just remember that Sabot slugs are intended for rifled barrels. Rifled slugs are intended for a smooth bore. It's possible to mix them up, but you won't get good results. From the Benelli FAQ: http://www.benelliusa.com/customer-service/index.tpl Regards theeshot
  11. clayton51, Go to your local gun store and try shouldering the 28" and the 26" in the gun model you are planning to purchase. I would quickly bring the gun to my shoulder and while swinging the gun to sight something on the wall or ceiling. In the end, I felt more confident with the 28" barrel. Most of clay shooters prefer the longer barrels 30" - 32" and longer than 32" due to the longer barrel provides a smoother swing of the gun. That is to say, the gun is not "whipy" when aiming. Choose the barrel length that allows you to sight better and the gun feels more balanced in your hands. Regards threeshot
  12. izzman, Give Benelli Customer Service a call and post back their answer. The Benelli FAQ does not talk about Hevi-shot. Just steel. You can reach Benelli Customer Service at: 301.283.6981 http://www.benelliusa.com/customer-service/contact.tpl Regards threeshot

  14. sbeIIfan, I would suggest spending some time reading and researching the posts in the SGW Tactical Shotguns forum. http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewforum.php?f=7 In short, don't waste your money on the exotic ammo. Stick to OO or OOO buckshot. Some say #1 buckshot is the best. I agree with tucker301 regarding the choke being C or IC. Regards threeshot
