  1. I just bought my SBE II on 24Nov06. I wanted an auto because I shoot sporting clays with friends after each hunt and found that my NOVA was a handicap on the second shot. Also I think I have on occasion missed a second shot on woodduck due to the pump. I went to a trap range on Sat just to see how it would shoot. Five boxes of target loads and not one problem. I was expecting at least one hang-up due to a new gun with light loads but she shot like a dream. This is one of the best handling and well made guns I have ever shot.

  2. I agree with the break-in using heavy field loads. Unfortunately the trap range wouldn't let me use them. I think the gun is so tight out of the box that the action has to be worked in. Heavy loads help do it quicker with fewer problems out of the box. I plan to do a heavy load break-in on my next field outing along with some pattern testing. Even so, I still had no hang ups on my first 125 shots.

     

    When I took delivery of my SBEII the box had never been opened so the gun had not ever been assembled (except at the factory I'm sure). The tolerances were extremely tight. I had a little trouble assembling it the first time. Specifically the bolt handle required a gentle pry to get it out and the Fore-end stock was very hard to slide over the magazine tube. I'm not complaining a bit, I would rather see a superb tight fit than a sloppy fit.

I was expecting at least one hang-up due to a new gun with light loads but she shot like a dream. I also looked at the Extrema2 but it felt a little big for me. I guess it's just a matter of personal preference. You can't go wrong with the SBE II in my opinion and here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland the SBE is well respected.
