  1. Just to clarify....when using 2 3/4 inch shells: My SBE II does not cycle with 2 3/4 dram eq. 1 1/8 oz.loads. It will cycle with 3 dram eq. 1 1/8 oz. loads. I have never shot a 3 inch or 3 1/2 inch shell in my sbe II. [ 09-23-2005, 10:11 PM: Message edited by: MG Dave ]
  2. I use my SBE II for trap shooting, and it works quite well. The rib is tapered somewhat, and thus it tends to pattern a little high. I even adjusted the drop so I am looking diredtly down the rib (flat...so the center bead completely blocks the front bead), and it still patterns a little high. The only drawbacks for trap are that you might hit the guy next to you when the spent shell is ejected, and once in a while the sound of the action closing will cause the voice activated trap to launch a rogue bird. You might also have trouble with the gun not cycling with a very light load. Mine works well with the recommended 3 - 1 1/8 loads, but it won't cycle completely with a 2 3/4 -1 1/8 load. I think the SBE II is a good all around shotgun, but of course, it is not a dedicated trap gun. It will work fine for "casual" trap shooting, but if you are a serious trap shooter, then there are better choices. Good luck [ 09-22-2005, 09:48 AM: Message edited by: MG Dave ]
  3. Don't know if the SBE I and SBE II recoil springs are assembled the same way, but this might help: SBE I recoil spring

    where can I get a m4?

    Possibly here on Guns America.

    No Recoil spring

    Wolff Gunsprings lists lighter springs for the Super 90 on their web site, but I'm not sure if they make one specifically for the M3. Call and ask. They are very high quality springs. Wolff Gunsprings

    No Recoil spring

    Yes, that is the recoil spring. It is located under the forearm, because some M3 models have a pistol grip, and a folding stock (which obviously can't house a recoil spring).

    No Recoil spring

    Hmmm... there seems to be some confusion here. As I understand it, the M3 is an inertia driven semi-auto, that can also be switched to a pump mode. The M4 is a gas operated shotgun. Part 36A is the inertia spring, but Benelli also refers to this spring (at least one place in the manual) as the "bolt recoil spring". Hence the confusion. I think the spring that Svaurez is referring to, is the true "recoil spring", which is sometimes called the action spring. The recoil spring (action spring) on the M3 is located under the forearm. I believe the primary reason for having the pump action as an option, is to allow the M3 to function with light loads, that would not typically cycle the inertia driven semi-auto action. I'm not sure if anyone makes a lighter action spring for the M3.

    Oh, I suspect there is a recoil spring in there somewhere. Maybe it's underneath the handguard.

    Same problem, different gun. http://www.benelliusa.com/forums/ultimatebb.php/topic/1/1977.html

    Nova recoil reducer

    I don't have a Nova, and I've never installed one of their recoil reducers, but... I THINK it may just be a rubber spacer, used to ensure that the recoil reducer fits snugly in the mounting bracket, so it doesn't rattle around. If you find out for sure, let us know.

    SBEII Steel Chokes

    You can also get "black ones" from Trulock. [ 09-05-2005, 10:39 AM: Message edited by: MG Dave ]
  12. Benelli makes a recoil reducer that should help some, especially with 3 1/2" shells. http://www.benelliusa.com/firearms/accessories.tpl Check with your local Benelli dealer, or you should be able to find it here: http://www.brownells.com

    quick question

    If you are referring to the charging handle, then pull hard! It will come loose. They are just a little tough to get out at first. Some tie a small cord (such as parachute cord) around the charging handle, to get a better grip.
  14. I would shoot the heck out of it. It's not much good sitting in the safe. But then, I'm a shooter, not a collector.
