  1. The loss of sight from one eye will diminish stereoscopic ie 3D capability, cant change the physics, however the learned behavior of tracking a target will only be affected slightly as you brain compensates for this loss by reading the size of the object you are tracking. It gets smaller , it's farther away. The trick here would be to compensate for the loss of three dimensions by removing the need for that information. Might I suggest learning trap or skeet style shooting with a firm cheeklock on the comb and tracking the target. Now you have the ability to track well, line up the firearm and
  2. does anyone know the heights of the raised comb 81044p and extra high comb 81045p for the SBEII?
  3. Check to see if there are any load restrictions at your trap range. Our local range has a restriction to 1oz max as the city is encroaching on it. Realize your gun may have problems with very light loads.
  4. About not planting it well in the shoulder ... I noted this issue when I let the son of my hunting partner try shooting the gun. He's 11 and I let him fire it from the hip with me helping to hold it. With a 2 3/4 1 1/4oz load it would not cycle yet when I fired the same load from the shoulder cycled every time. As for the cold , if I ever had a problem it was because the grease had stiffened or I foolishly let ice get into the action.
  5. PS: Check out the Franchi if your dead set on inertia systems.
  6. $1200 is a lot of money for a shotgun. I bought my SBEII with very high expectations and most of them were met. For the money though the inititial quality control on last years models was poor. Paint chipping can be expected, stiff safeties, choke tube wrenches that would not fit and gel pads that fell off on this price range should not be. To thier credit Benelli's distributor and aspecially Christina Day at Benelli did rectify all the problems. Unfortunately guns are rarely like cars where you can test drive them or like most products returnable. Once you buy this baby, it's yours unless y
  7. Oh yes the spring, leave it cocked only if you want it to be pooched. Springs have a fixed life and will perform better in the long run if stored in a "relaxed" postion.
  8. Dump the Mattel case! either a good sealed case, or gun cabinet in a cool dry place. I clean well, use a rust inhibitor, and a silicone gun sock just in case it bangs into another gun. My wife moaned but the gun cabinet left the basement and is in a above ground closet with a can of silica ( can be recharged) moisture absorbant in the cabinet. I also have a dehumidifier in the summer months in my storge area. Few guns are investments but are tools that have a fixed life with usage. Once rusted the guns are never quite the same.
  9. I agree with tucker, not a gun for light loads. Cycles 31/2's really well but can be muderous on the shoulder. My hunting partner who had shoulder surgery several years ago found that 31/2's caused a lot of pain quickly and he had to abandon that round completely for three inch. He has a nova pump. After using my SBE for several months now I find it a good gun. It's light therefore easy to carry but does it shot better than a 391 or 11-87? My score are all similar, just a matter of personal preference. Before you buy make sure you check the gun carefully finish, security of the butt pad, e
  10. As A Canadian, I Have had experience here. You cant purchase it yourself unless you are a US Citizen. You can have some gun shops try to export it but you would have better luck purchasing it in a EU country.
  11. When I invited comments to my statement I expect to hear pros and cons but as far as most are concerned insults and personal attacks are out of line. My comments were regarding Benelli’s quality control. I have no qualms with their customer service, in fact kudos to Christina Day and all there for their prompt attention to problems. Benelli USA is a business not an individual some I’m sure they are thick skinned enough to realize the difference between a personal jab and pointing out a concern with a product. However, I work in a corporate culture where quality is the ultimate goal. As far a
  12. Wow Mudhen, Is there some reason your taking this personaly? If a product does not work properly most people would look to find what the problem is and fix it. You seem to feel that defects are ok. That I guess is your issue. Benelli offers a post forum to hear comments good and bad. People as yourself perhaps have some other interest that conflicts with the ability to judge a product as a consumer. So what did you do with your Lexus and its problems or is that something your content with. And for the record do you have anything to to with Benelli USA?
  13. Origionally posted in recoil pad problems: Well an interesting collection of comments but no reply from Benelli directly. It's beginning to seem that the SBEII is a gun with numerous problems all seeming to relate to quality control. 1) Recoil pads that fall off 2) A stiff safety 3) Choke tube wrench that does not fit all the tubes 4) Swivel point that dont universally fit all sling mounts Realistically, all problems that should not exist on a $1300 firearm and are seemingly adresses in a piecemeal fashion ie only squeaky wheels get greased. The worst part is that the gun is still

  15. Ok I just received my new replacement recoil pad from benelli today. I have seen that there are others out there with the same problem of loosing thier rubber in the heat of the moment So..... what's the best way to make it stick. I wanna hear this from Benelli A) glue? if so what kind B) Tape so far my most secure option but looks like **** on a 1300$ gun C) Any creative ideas! But also what is the real problem. Is the stock spreading on firing, was the pad sized incorrectly at manufacture? is there a release agent that needs to be removed. Let us know so we can fix the problem.
