  1. Thought that would get heads turning, am after a firing pin retaining pin oring.

    As i am not in the usa, does anyone no the specs on one eg diameter etc, material made out of etc, so i can go to a seal house in NZ and get one.



  2. have just bought a wad wizard swat tube, was marked for optima and crio barrels, now question is can it fit the early model sbe?with the mobil tubes.Anyone help..any thanks

  3. my bad ours are infact 6 shot.yeahar getting mine next week.




    The buzz in the shot gunning world for 2010 has been the all new Benelli Vinci. In the US it cleaned up the NRA's 'Shotgun of the Year Award', and the recent launch in Europe has contributed to a shortage across the globe. It's popularity is due to a radical new design which effectively makes it lighter and therefore quicker to point and shoot, it has recoil reduction technology to compensate for the lightness, a new inertia action design which raises the bar for trouble free shooting, it's easy to clean, and is modular for ease of transportation.


    The modular Vinci design extends through to the Magazine, and as a world first, the Hunting & Fishing New Zealand Vinci's have been supplied with 6 shot capacity (5 in the mag + 1in the chamber).


    Hunting & Fishing New Zealand learned about the Vinci early on, and in fact we took a punt and placed an opening order back in June 2009. As it turned out this was a very lucky move as these were the only Vinci's Benelli was able to manufacture for this county's distributor, Beretta NZ, in time for the2010 hunting season.


    Caution: We are aware that competitors have parallel imported a small number of Benelli Vinci's from the USA. These are easy to distinguish as they will have a magazine capacity of only 3 shells. It's important to make this differentiation because parallel imported guns do not carry the Beretta NZ after sales warranty etc.

  4. With a sbe and a xtrema 2 don't see the need for one.Its in our latest hunting and fishing mag, we have just had them released over here, later than everone else, but one has been circulating here since last april as a trial gun.

  5. Over here in nz i shoot fast steel , over half the price compared to that bc stuff. Fast steel seems to have more grunt than most of the shells we get over here. Its our duckshooting season at mo so from talking to others its the reccession proof shell.

  6. Ah yes, another season just finished here in good old new zealand, bagged 18 for the weekend two shy of the limit. But was a good last blast. Can't wait till next year, bring it on.:D:D

  7. Yip sure have.My sbe1 was famous for always jamming.After several years back and forth to the gun smith here in new zealand i decided enough was enough.Firstly i completlety stripped the gun and cleaned it.Result gun still jamming on 2 3/4 and 3 and 3/1/2 inch shells.Frustrating.Then i replace the extractor claw. Result gun still jamming occasionally.Last thing i did was take apart the recoil assembly and cleaned well.Still jamming.Took apart recoil assembly again but i accidently broke the small plunger at the back of the recoil rod, hence shortning the rod by some 5mm by not having the full length of the rod in their.The broken piece was no way able to be reatteached so i reassembled gun.But to my surprise the gun has not jammed since.Ive shot every shell you can think of and no jamming.Somehow i think the timing of my gun may have been out due to internal tolereances of my second hand gun.But im not complaining.I suggest you don't shorten the recoil stroke of your gun by accidently breaking the end of the rod.However im stoked mine is going.If i had had a new sbe i would have returned it to the shop.however mine was second hand at a good price so i had no option but to figure it out myself.:D
