  1. Thanks for the input. I'm going to give it a try.
  2. Three Special Field Crio® Chokes Has anybody used these chokes? Satisfied?
  3. Thanks tucker. I'm new to hunting. I just started bird hunting this year, and want to go for pigs and deer later. I say this because I don't know how many times I will need to zero my rifle/scope in a given year, no matter which rifle I get. I already have a single shot .25-06 with a Bushnell Elite 4200. I wanted to upgrade to a semi auto, just in case the zombies attacked. Haven't shot/zeroed the .25-06 yet...going to the range sucks around here...(don't want to have to zero a whole lot of times in the year...) I have heard to check it with new loads or after traveling when the scope could have been moved. And then just every so oftern to make sure your'e still good. Will more than this be required with the R1? Unfortunately, I started buying guns young, and with military type scenarios in mind, and can't break down and buy a bolt action...I want to be able to get some 10 round mags (for the .30-06 R1 for example) and take on some enemy position ( unlikely, I know...), and also be able to hunt with the same rifle. But some mind numbing maintenece and accuracy issues will not work for me. Unfortunatley, I do not like any other semi auto "hunting' rifle except the R1. ...am I doomed to get a bolt? I do like the ultra light bolts, kimber, weatherby, etc. I think it would be a good partner with my 9 lb single shot. (one for the stand, one for walking) If I get a bolt it will be an ultra light, in the same price class of the R1...I just havent come to terms with paying that money for what I percieve is less capability... Bolts would require less maintenance, but kick more, and have a slower fire rate, but your'e shots would in theory count more....I don't know anymore... I wish the R1 was perfect... Sorry for rambling, just thinking out loud...anyone have advice for a new hunter? Thanks.
  4. I was wondering the same thing. Does anyone have any input? How often (after what activities) will I need to re-zero if I get the R1?
  5. +1! As long as you get a semiauto Benelli, you can'y go wrong. That said, I own the SBE2, so that's what I would recommend. The difference I liked was having EASY access to every inch of the insides of my gun, and the mid-bead. I could care less about 3.5's then, but the more hunting experience I get, the more I appreciate the 'clean kill' factor of premium and/or high energy loads. I vote for the SBEII.
  6. I bought my SBEII at Cabelas for $1369 and got $150 Cabelas bucks...got 3 cases of heavy dove shells, and some other stuff. They have a deal right now for $100 Cabelas bucks with any Benelli Semiauto shotgun. I love the comfortec, and would suggest you get it. I prefer the black version. You can't beat a SBEII comfortec!! When I cleaned it I fell in love all over again. The inside is a beautiful as the outside. You won't regret it.
  7. Thanks for the info HOGWILD. Something tells me it still won't be good enough...
  8. No price listed? Are you interested in trades? How about a one of these?
  9. Performance worth the price...and the wait!
  10. Have you ordered the part number Benelli gave you? They gave you the name of a retailer and the part number. Order it and wait your turn like everybody else. If you don't order it now, it will be even longer...everyone that has one ordered will get theirs first. Waiting for Benelli parts/firearms/accessoties is very common...I'm suprised you did not come across this fact when doing your pre-purchase research. I have read stories here of people paying big bucks and waiting a year... I'm not saying I disagree with you that it SUCKS, however, it is what it is. You have to somehow move on. When you get your barrel it will have been worth the wait, and you will have one awesome Nelli!
  11. Thanks, keep me posted please.
