  1. Ever hunted there before? I have hunted SE and due South of Stuttgart, and the hunting was steady, nothing spectacular. I was there over Christmas and had some really good hunts, just wish the locals were a little friendlier.
  2. My expirience is the same as Tuckers, nothing but flawless going on 4 years now.
  3. http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_56326____SearchResults $59.99 at Bass Pro, you need the Beretta/Benelli model
  4. Tucker your post at Shotgun World reads $100 FTF, just a heads up
  5. That is the recoil spring plunger, yours should look like this: I have several of these I removed, I replace all of mine with Sure Cycles, not because of potential problems, because I wanted to.
  6. Are you talking about this: If so, take the butt stock off and clean the action/recoil spring tube, and thoroughly inspect the gun.
  7. Are you talking about the recoil spring plunger? If so, I have never seen one or hear of one doing it, it is supposed to be 100% stainless steel.
  8. Screw the cap off and gently work the retainer out , be careful the spring will surprise you, and clean it like you would the barrel, except don't use a brush, just a swab or a piece of a towel pushed thru several times with some cleaner on it, the a light coat of oil and a dry swab, reassemble and your done. It's nothing to be afraid of, once you do it and see how easy it is you'll do every time. I use both the Synthetic based cleaner and oil, and I have never had a problem, no matter how cold, how wet or how long I am out, no FTFs.
  9. There is no gas system, it is an inertia driven system. What area are you calling the "tube"? If your talking about the action spring "tube", you paid $1300+ for the gun, it takes mere minutes to break it all the way down to a sum of its parts and thoroughly clean. I don't understand why some people won't do a thorough cleaning after every use, but then again, these are the same people who complain when they have a FTF. I have had one FTF and it was my own fault. I let my SBE II rest on a blind brushed with palm grass, and a piece of it broke off and got down in the trigger
  10. They can make a huge difference, the parallel section is longer, the quality can be leaps and bounds above the factory. They did make a huge difference in several of my guns.
  11. I would first suggest you pattern the shells you plan to use with the factory tube, and if you don't get the desired results at the pattern board, then buy a aftermarket choke tube. Some good choices are: The Primos Dead Zone 2 pk, you get a decoy and a passing tube for about $60 shipped I really like Trulocks, I have a complete set, but I rarely use anything beyond a IC or Skeet2, basically a decoy and passing tube. Cabela's Steel and Hevi-Shot tubes are $30 a piece, they are made by Carlson's Choke Tubes for Cabela's, and they have them in several constrictions. I ha
  12. I put one in every new gun I buy, I guess each his own. The only thing stainless about the new inertia action system in the Benelli is the plunger and spring, and I am not 100% sure the spring is stainless. I also throw the mag kit in as well.
  13. I have both and like both, but the more open trigger guard of The SBE II is nice, it is also a lot easier to clean, 2 piece receiver. That said, I shoot nothing but 2 3/4" out of both, but the option of having a 3 1/2" shell is nice, more possibilities/options if you happen to be out of town and shells get lost, forgotten, or stolen.
