  1. When Benelli told me they were coming out with an extension I decided against a local gunsmith "modification" and wait, so I bought a limbsaver pullover recoil pad to get a little more LOP. It works alright but with the angled Benelli recoil pad it doesn't fit all that well. I primarily use the gun for duck hunting so I usually have a lot of clothes on but I would still like to get the gun to fit better. It has been a great gun, I have never had a problem and I absolutely love it, I just wish I could get another 1 1/2" longer stock.
  2. Thanks lefty, but I need another 1 1/2" from the the longest pad they have. I inquired about 2 years ago and they said they were working on one. I was hoping they had came out with a way to increas the LOP, I am 6'8" with a 7' wingspan, I have about a 16" LOP
  3. Does anyone know if Benelli has come out with a stock extension to increase LOP on the SBEII? Thanks a bunch.
  4. I know this has been pounded here many times but I need a little help. I have my new SBE in Max-4 and it is the duck opener today. What is the best way to clean this gun. I hunt both fresh and salt water, even our fresh water is pretty brackish. I am pretty simple in my regular gun cleaning, my blued guns I spray them down with Rem-oil sometimes wd-40, wipe them down and call it good between complete breakdown cleanings. I don't want to hurt the dipped finish and I think this process may lead to decreased life of the finish. Any help is appreciated.

    LOP Extension

    I am getting my SBEII this week and need to extend the LOP to 15 1/2". I have talked with the guy in Michigan about it and will buy his kit if Benelli doesn't come out with one. Customer Service e-mailed me a couple months ago that one was in the works, has anyone heard anything?

    I did it!!

    I think I will make a game time decision, when if finally comes in, (which can take a while in Alaska) the answer will come from above! Hopefully I sell my trap gun before the SBE comes so I have a little capitol to justify the purchase!

    BM, you hit it right on the head! We do have old couches, that "must" be replaces with leather couches. I also have 3 bathrooms to redo, shelves to build, and a house to reside. Well, I have managed to put those projects off for quite a while, another year I can pull off. Notice, I never mentioned how much the gun actually cost. Hopefully she won't ask or see the benelli motto. I am trying to liquidate some guns in order to cover some of the costs.

    I think I am going to go with the old stand by, "I thought I told you I ordered that a while back, ...." We will see how that goes over!

    There are two reasons, I have shot a 28" barrel since I was 12, and in the left-handed SBEII in Max-4 only comes in a 28" barel! I can't wait to get it! Now I just have to figure out how to tell my wife!!!!

    I ordered my SBEII, max-4, 28", left handed. Now I need to extend the LOP. I have contacted the guy in MI and will probably buy his product. I have contacted Benelli and they said they are working on it, I would rather have a Benelli product once they get it designed, any word on that yet???
  11. I got an e-mail back from Benelli and they said they are working on an extension. Their first proto-type failed and are going back to the drawing board. Hopefully by mid-year they will have something. I wonder if they talked with the guy at all-sport-tech about his style. I haven't seen it yet but it sounds pretty simple. I bet it won't take long for the engineers to figure it out.

    I am a moderator over there and let the powers at be know you all are having problems. Hopefully it will be resolved soon. Let me know if you don't get on in a week or so.
  14. Just got off the phone with All Sport, what a nice guy. I will be using his product once I get the gun! Thanks for the help GB!!! Adam
  15. Has anyone used the Sure Cycle stainless system in their SBEII yet? I hunt a lot in a saltwater environment and was going to put one in my SBEII when I get it.
