  1. I dont think you would be interested in a camo'ed gun, but my supernova steady grip in advantage timber camo came from the factory drilled and tapped. Just bought it last week, haven't tried to mount my red dot sight yet.
  2. Yes, the steadygrip models are drilled and tapped. Just bought one two days ago. the funny thing is, that there are no screws in the holes, just little black plastic fillers that you have to punch out before you can use the holes. Havent had a chance to shoot it yet, Im trying to wait til I get my Burris speed dot mounted. Hope this helps.
  3. Ive got an M2 comfortech with Max-4 camo that I purchased back in November. Absolutely love the gun. I was just wondering how the camo finish holds up over time? Seems to me that it would wear more around the grip area and the forearm, simply from the oils in your hands. I realize that I am obssessing to worry over such a trivial thing, but thats just the way I am. Maybe I have OCD or something. Anyway, I dont hunt with my gun nearly as much as some of you guys do, so I'm sure if you guys havent had any problems then I probably wont either.
  4. Just wondering how many of you guys have actually seen one of the Ultra Lights in person? I have called every dealer I can think of here in North Carolina, and most of them said that they have yet to see one. One dealer had one last week but promptly sold it. I sure hope they start showing up soon. Can't wait to get one.

    Ultra Light

    I am thinking about picking up an ultra light to use as my primary pheasant gun. Just wondering how many folks on the forum already have one, and what do you think of them? I love the idea of the light weight, but I wonder about the recoil of a 6 pound twelve gauge. However, the Ruger gold label side by side is only 6.5 pounds I think, and no one seems to complain much about it's recoil. I look foward to hearing your feedback. I want one of those ultra lights in the worst way! Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi guys, I haven't posted in awhile, however I have been checking the board regularly. I read a post a day or so ago talking about camo finishes and paint chipping. I have an M2 with Max-4 camo. I havent had it a year yet, but so far no problems. My question is this, if my gun does start to show some wear and tear over the years, will Benelli re-dip the gun if I send it back to them? I realize that I would have to pay for this service, but it is nice to know in the back of your mind, that you could send your gun off and have it look new again. Has anyone done this before? I would think it would be a real pain to have to strip off all the old camo, and re-dip the gun, probably wouldnt be cheap. Thanks in advance.

    new nova

    I am definately with you on that one. For so long we have heard about a new Nova with the comfortech stock, but still no pictures or info. I thought for sure something would surface at the SHOT show. What is Benelli waiting on, an engraved invitation? This is getting really frustrating.
  9. I keep hearing all the rumors of the new Nova with the comfortech stock, but I have yet to see any pictures of it. Can anyone who was at the SHOT show tell us less fortunate folks about the Nova with Comfortech?
  10. No, the only waiting period in North Carolina is for handgun purchases. The only thing they do when you purchase a long gun is run your name through a national computer system to make sure you aren't wanted or your name isn't flagged some how. Thanks for the reply, I finally sat down and read the entire instruction manual and figured out the function of everything.
  11. Thanks for all the advice guys. I decided to go with the M2. I talked to several guys that goose hunt in various fields in my area, and most of them dont use 3 1/2 inch shells. A few of them have guns that are capable of digesting the 3 1/2 inchers, however they advised that they rarely use them. At any rate, I'm sure I would have been happy with either gun, and I appreciate everyone's advice. Thanks.
  12. Ok, I just brought my new M2 home about an hour ago. I assembled it per the manual. Keep in mind, I have never owned a Benelli or any other semi automatic shotgun for that matter. When I pull the bolt handle to the rear all the way, is the bolt supposed to lock back? My bolt will not stay to the rear unless I press up on the cartridge drop lever that is located near the front of the trigger guard. I can then press the slide release button and the bolt slams home. My question is, is this normal for the M2. I know it is a stupid question, but I would appreciate your input. Thanks in advance.
  13. Well, the truth is, I have never done a lot of goose hunting. What little bit of hunting I have done, has been with 3 inch shells. The majority of my hunting will be done over a decoy spread in a field. I like the idea of having the option of using 3 1/2 shells should I ever get the opportunity to do other types of waterfowling though. To answer your question, no, I do not currently use 3 1/2 inch shells. Thanks.
  14. Ok guys, I'm new to the forum, and to the world of Benelli shotguns. My wonderful wife has agreed to let me buy a Benelli shotgun for Christmas. I have been surfing the web for about two months now trying to determine which model would best suit my needs. I am stuck between the SBE II Comfortech and the M2 Comfortech. It seems that I have read about more cycling/ functioning problems with the SBE II. I was just wondering if there is any truth to that. If so, what would cause the SBE II to be less reliable? I also realize that some people who say they are having problems with cycling or functioning may not know much about firearms or the proper care and or maintenence for them. I will say that I am leaning toward the SBE II, as most of my hunting will be for Geese. So, let me hear it guys, SBE II or M2? Thanks.
