    New shim kits

    Anyone ordered the new shim kits that allow cast off for she ii?
  3. I used an extended choke tube made by Pure Gold .670 at about 30 yrds. Took him down quick. I have also got a Jelly Head coming this week to see if they pattern any different. I patterned some 2oz #5 but the 2oz #4 patterned better in the PG.
  4. Just got my first turkey today using my 26in Camo SBE II using 3 1/2 Kent #4. Went down like his head was cut off with a razor.
  5. Yea,,,must fit perfect. All I have to do is put it up and shoot. Light too.
  6. Went dove hunting yesterday. Got limit in about two hours. Afterwards I had an old man come up to me and said. I saw you shooting down from us and was just wondering what kind of gun you were shooting. You were making some long shots. Had to tell him it was my Benelli M2 20ga that I just got. Got 15 birds with a box of shells. Use to take about 4 boxes before I got the Benelli.
  7. I have a 24" on mine and love it. Shoots like a dream.
  8. I like short barrels because I quail hunt and going through briars and woodlands seems like it hangs up less and weighs a little less. Also shoot doves. Love the 24 in. M2 20ga. Also like the SBE II 26 in, but it seems like it is 28 in, but it still is a wonderful pointer and shooter. Great guns in any length. Just a matter of preference.
  9. Took this little gun out and shot 23 or 25 right out of the box. Can't wait to shot it on doves this fall. I have gone through alot of shotguns and this is the one of the best shooting guns I have shot. I didn't just hit them they disappeared. I noticed it had very long choke tubes. Used IC.
  10. Wow, just got my M2 20ga. Shoots like a dream. Patterned it and out of the box got about 75/25. Just the way I like to shoot rising quail and passing doves. Matches my SBE II camo. Won't ever get a gun I can't adjust the shims again.
  11. I was looking at shotguns this morning and came across a Montefeltro with two stocks. Youth and adult. Price was for one stock. Pretty neat if you have a youngster coming along.
  12. I am thinking about getting the M2 realtree apg in 20ga 24". Any feedback? Hunt quail and doves in SC.
  13. There are alot of Boykin Spaniel where I live in SC. To be very truful about the Boykin I have seen very few that did not have some type of genetic problems from hip problems, skin problems, sugar to seizures. You have to be extremely careful and find an extremely careful breeder and even then you chances of getting a medically impaired dog are fairly high. That's why I have always had English Springer Spaniels. Even then I had a problem with one out of four that I have had and that one was ordered out of South Dakota from hunting stock out of England. I spent more money on that one t

    SBE II Sight

    Where can I find an original green sight for my SBE II? Small front sight. Do not want the larger after market sights. Thanks for any help putting me in the right direction.

    Legacy 28 gauge

    Try a Franchi 28 gauge, if you want a light little 28. I like mine.........
  16. I let a friend of mine use my SBE II and after he shot it a couple of times I he had the same problem. I am not exactly sure what he did but have a theory. I have never had the problem before. I think what he was doing was putting to many shells in the receiver by pushing the small silver lever next to the trigger (don't recall its name) and then firing the gun. It would not fire like the safety was still on. I know you can put one shell in the receiver and then pull the bolt back. I think he was doing that then pressing the level twice?????????? I took it completely apart and made
  17. Make sure you take a brush and clean out the chamber in the barrel. Build up of crud in the chamber can cause all kinds of ejection problems.
  18. I took everything apart and it seems to be working now. Will feel better after I shoot a half box of shells. I think the guy I let use it was probably doing something weird in cycling the shells. I have never had a problem with it firing until he got hold of it. Learned a lesson.
  19. The trigger would not move. I will pull the trigger tonight after work and clean it good. Took out bolt and pin and cleaned it already.
  20. I have a SBE II that is less than a year old and have never had a problem with it firing until today. I let a friend use it and and after shooting a few pen raised quail it quit firing with him. I tried to get it to fire, put shells in took them out and it just wouldn't work. It was like the safety was on when it was off. When I would cycle some shells the safety would go from off to on??? After taking it apart a coule of times and putting it back together it finally started firing ok. For how long I don't know. Does anyone know what he might could have done? I have shot about 10 b
  21. I tried one a couple of weeks ago on a 20 ga Beretta. It may be fine if you are shooting it like a rifle, but it is too distracting for shooting birds. I wouldn't waste my money.
  22. You can get them alot cheaper at Mid South in Wagram, NC.
  23. I also recently bought a new SBE II and noticed the difference in guns. They now have three pads of different lengths. You got the middle size just like mine. Done so to extend lOP for some folks. I also would rather have the thicker pad with the old stock.
  24. I got a look at the new Vinci today. As far as the look and feel of the Vinci I like my SBEII better. Not really impressed with the design. Would like to have been able to shoot it. Like the fact it is adjustable for LOP, cast, and drop which is a great selling point. Would be interested if there was a big difference in recoil. Did not like the safety at the front of the trigger. Also the recoil pad surface was tectured which I like a smooth recoil pad that won't hang on clothes. The real test will be whether it is a better shooter.
  25. A shoots the lowest pattern and Z shoots the highest pattern with the other letters in between. On my SBE II I like a 80/20 pattern and tried the Z, but when back to the C. Z was too high. B shot right in the middle for me. Your's may be different.
