  1. If you want to forgo the debate it all boils down to 150fps to 300fps of bullet speed. The one think I like about longer barrels is they are a little quiter, and they don't seem to get hot as quickly. Other than that it is a matter of personal preference what you like .
  2. Texas and Nebraska are on the map for me.. As for loads, there is still more testing to be done. Right now I like this combo, SBE Wad Wizard supreme Choke 3 1/2" Federal mag shock #5 I still have to shoot a few more rounds through my tight wad choke before I say I am ready to hunt though.
  3. MR. M.P., I am proud to be a NRA member! Tucker has a lot of truth in what he is saying, the media would like the world to think that ALL gun owners are gun toting, trigger happy, beer drinking, slobs. There is no truth in a statement like that, but the media doesn't care. They got it on film some one showing off how fast he can empty his gun, and another gun owner drinking beer, and another gun owner doing whatever, the list could go on and on. This is where the NRA fits into the picture, they give us gun owners a clean face, I think that they try to leave people with the impression, gun owners are educated people with a level head. This is the impression that we as individuals need to leave people with, who have questions about weather we need to own an AR-15 or the like. Shure it is the one who pulls the trigger, not the GUN that kills the person, but with an attitude like that, people will do everything in thier power to make shure that we do not own AR-15s and the like. Here is my whole point, MONEY TALKS!!!! Rather than having a march, and risking a gun owner being portrayed as an idiot, thereby confirming that all gun owners are idiots (In the media's eyes that is) Why not make it a point to support the NRA and others like them? The NRA has lobbist in D.C. working with our law makers daily, Congress knows that there are people who value gun ownership, they just don't know how many of us are really out here. So instead of a Million man march, why not a Million letters to congress telling them how much you value your 2nd Amendment? That way they have paper proof of the number of gun owners telling them they take thier 2nd amendment right very seriously Just a thought. Scott
  4. Looks like a pretty sweet rig !!
  5. Another thing to consider, Are you flinching when you shoot? Also are you trying to shoot the gun like a rifle, with a gentle trigger pull? Or are you slapping the trigger? Here is the best tip I can give you, get 2 boxes of dove loads and try sighting in your shot gun again. From what I read in your post you are shooting turkey loads while sighting in your gun, right? If it is the windage you are after, you might even be able to fix the problem by changing the way you mount you shotgun. Just some thoughts Good luck!!
  6. It's hard to beat the 870, they have been in my family for years and no one has really had a problem. A few years back my brother bought a nova and I got a SBE, after shooting the nova I don't much care for it, but my brother absoultely loves the gun, go figure. If you like the way the nova feels and points get it, if not go with the 870, I have to of them and have had no problens. Bottom line both guns are well built, and will last a life time
  7. Like others have said, it all depends on the choke load combo. Shotguns like rifles have thier likes and dislikes of ammo, before going out and buying a new choke take the time to pattern your gun. There is nothing wrong with factory chokes, in fact they sometimes patteren better than aftermarket chokes. I shoot an SEB, and have had no trouble taking a limmit of ducks or shooting a turkey with factory chokes. The biggest reason I bought a aftermarket choke was that I wanted that extra edge, as I thing many others want also. Here is a pic of a Wad wizard SWAT pattern next to a Benelli Mod shooting my favorite duck load It doesn't look like much on paper, but I still think that I hit more birds when I have my Wad Wizard in.

    Need Help !

    Spas-15, Why is it that you can't take shotgun to a different smith? maybe they can find the parts you need, and send a bill to that sorry outfit that calls himself a dealer. BTW that is an interesting looking shotgun, I am going to do a little research on that one. good luck, and I hope you get everything sorted out.
  9. Like anyone else, we are restricted to 3 shots on migratory birds, but for everything else the law says nothing on how many shells your gun can hold. Now befor you say I am a terrible example of a sportsman, I don't use a mag. extension while hunting, just while target shooting and the like
  10. My SBE has a step up rib, and yes what you are saying does make sense. I haven't had the opportunity to handle a M2, but I am glad to hear that they point like a SBE, as that would have been my next question. My Sbe works great and will shoot anything that I feed it, but when I put my mag. extension on, it doesn't like to cycle the light loads very well. I am hopeing that a gun with a 3'' chamber might cure this problem, I plan to use this gun for target shooting, pheasants and quail. any thoughts on this theory would be appreciated
  11. I am planing on getting another benelli, this time I am going with a 3'' chamber. I had my eye on a montefeltro, until the other day I had the opportunity to handle one. When I mounted it the stock was waay to short, and it didn't point anything like my SBE, I thought I grabed an 11-87 there for a second but it was in fact a monte. I have looked up the specs on the SBE2,and Monte., the only difference in stock demitions, is the drop in heel and comb, can 3/8" make that much difference? I then grabed an SBE2, mounted it, and it fit me like a glove. it's only 3/8 of an inch. any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
  12. It's been a while since I bought any, but I think I picked it up at Academy Sports
  13. Since some have more knowledge than others about trick shooters, tell me what it takes to get the attention of benelli or the like. I am up to 4 hand thrown targets and can hike 2, I can do the golfball stunt too. all of course with a LH SBE I am still practicing and hope to get to 8 like Mr. Knapp
  14. My brother has a nova, and if I remember correctly this is a normal thing. The nova is just a little different than most shotguns, just keep shooting it until you feel comfortable with it. Good luck
  15. Tucker, what did you give for your LH SBEII? I looked at the right hand version at Cabelas, they seem to point and handle a little better than the SBE
  16. I have a BPS 10 ga. and a Remington LH 11-87 12ga. Both are good guns, the BPS has a top gang safety. I had to sent it back to the factory for an ejection problem, I had the gun back in about 2 months and everything works great! The 11-87 is a good gun as well, you just need to be careful what type of lube you use on it in cold weather. Like I said, both guns are good.... but the Benelli is the best. I steped up to a LH SBE from a 11-87, it is worth time to save a little longer for a Benelli. Also, if you only plan to shoot 3" shells the M2 or Monti. can be had in LH, with $3-500 nocked off the price tag. Good luck
  17. Not really, make shure that the barrel is clear of obstructions, load up and have fun I don't know how often you read the forms, but make shure that your SBE is clean, and it will not let you down. I guess that the only real tip I can give is this, use as little oil as possible when hunting in cold conditions. I use Castrol synthetic gun lube, it has worked very well for me, and it is designed to be used in weather down to -40 F good luck and be safe

    That is well said, but if the person has a crapy attitude and only wants to rag on a product or a person, it might be necesary to set then in thier place. Just a thought
  19. Limmits are there for a reason, so what if you are a Native American and can shoot as much as you want. The point is this, limmits are put on birds to prolong the life of the species, not so a warden can stand around and hand out fines, although that is the price one has to pay for breaking the LAW! I think that it is dumb of you guys to post how many over the limmit that you went. When most people hear of such activities it makes them MAD Be smart for once and keep the over the limmit details to your self. Rather than stating that you shot x number of birds by your self, ( and being so far over the limmit that it's not even funny) try stating numbers close to leagle limmits. That way should you ever be investigated you won't look so incriminating.
  20. [ you will hear some bad things about Benelli shot guns only because most of the guys that own them have put them through more harsh conditions, and truth be known have fired more rounds through them than any other shotgun they own. the question you need to ask yourself as you decide is how many people do you know that have ever had a Benelli shotgun does NOT have one now? [/QB] Excellent Point
  21. I know it sound like I am off my rocker, but the quickest way to tell if it is the chamber, drop a 31/2'' shell in the chamber, turn the barrel upside down and the shell should fall out. All shells should fall out, regardless of brand. If all goes well with that test, it may very well be your bolt.
  22. I had an issue like that with a 870 supermag, I simply went over to my Dad's house, looked through his plumbing drawer, grabed a hand brush that is made for cleaning the inside of 3/4'' copper fittings. Took off the barrel and cleaned the chamber, the problem went away instantly. I am shure that they make a brush for this, it's just that I haven't found one yet. I have to clean the chamber about twice a year, under hard hunting conditions. Good luck
  23. It's sad that people think that if you spent a huge amout of money on something, you will never have to do any maintenance on it. Remember this it is a MACHINE, all machines are designed inside a set of specs. ANY use of the machine will case the machine to become dirty, simple as that. This applies to any gun, weather it costs $100 or $10,000
  24. I only clean the spring in the stock once a year. The first time you disasimble everything, be careful not to dent the spring tube as this WILL keep your gun from cycling properly. There is a little locktight on the threads. I do no see the need to "relock" the threads again, since I have never had a problem with anything coming lose. Yes, I am refuring to the magazine tube Good luck
