  1. That's pretty interesting, I was planning on sending it off to briley this week, but now I have something else to think about...
  2. Hogwild, yea thats a good idea, greasing the outside up before going in the rain...can't believe I never thought of that. Cleefurd, I'll pick some up for the future, but I think I'm going to send this in to get done professionally, does it come out matte or shiny? cause my barrel is very polished...and where do you get yours? Novaking, I thought of that, but I don't think I want to go quite that short.
  3. true, alright, I'm going to send it into briley, that way I can get some of the performance shop work done as well. Than I'll worry about selling it and buying the 28"
  4. In my defense, it was 600 grit...it feels no rougher than paper, I was shocked that it did so much damage... Tucker my only thought is that I want to replace this barrel with a 28" anyway, which I can't find for less than $600...and I'm assuming a gunsmith is going to charge at least 200 to reblue it. If I could sell/trade it as is, than I would be golden. Any more tips...? I'm pretty decided that I'm not going to try to do anything else myself since I no longer have any trust in my handiness
  5. hmm, than I'm not sure I see a point...I'm going to want a permanent fix eventually...
  6. Yea, maybe I'll order some cold blue, anyone have a link to one they recommend. Briley also sounds like a good idea, I was thinking about doing some of the performance shop stuff to my supersport, so they could do both.
  7. yea, I was kinda forced to shoot in the rain at this tournament I was at, and I gave the gun a quick cleaning and wipe down afterwords, but obviously not well enough. The barrel is a 30" and I want to replace it with a 28", but I can't find one for less than $600 from ableammo. How much would a re-blueing cost from a gunsmith, and how much do you think I could sell the 30" for with and without the reblueing? Also, if anyone is interested in trading a 30" for a 28" I would be very interested!
  8. Hi guys, so I had some rust towards the end of my supersport barrel and I used some 0000 steel wool and some 600 grit sandpaper with some hoppe's oil to get rid of it. I don't think it was a very good idea though...I got rid of the rust, but the barrel lost it's coloring where the rust used to be...which looks a lot worse. What should I do now? I'm not exactly sure what blueing is or how it works, but is that an option? I don't mind paying someone if there is a professional service that could fix this.

  9. Benelli only makes semi-auto's and a couple rifles. If you want a sweet o/u I would look at Browning, I have 2 o/u brownings...a citori and a cynergy, and they are nice partners in crime for my benelli supersport. Also Browning is an American company, which seems up your alley. The founder, John Browning, invented like every single shotgun innovation ever, pump, lever action, gas operated...before him there were just like blunderbusses or something
  10. No I haven't, but I have been planning on doing that. I know a gunsmith who does fittings. I definitely gotta check that out, because I am shouldering the gun correctly, but I don't think it fits me correctly. prob not why the pad is peeling...maybe
  11. I guess I'll call them up, can't hurt...don't think it'll help much either though. Anyone have suggestions besides the duct tape for stopping it in the meantime?
  12. Yea, I'm sure it's something I'm doing that is making it deteriorate...I don't think it's happening magically. I usually wear just a t-shirt or a shooting vest, but it's going in and out of gun racks. Also, I usually rest the stock on the top of my wallet which is in my front left pocket or on top of shoes, but I try to not do that. I don't know how it started though, one day after shooting i just noticed it had sort of opened up, but I didn't remember doing anything out of the ordinary.
  13. mines a righty, but as I said, I'm really looking to prevent further damage, not replace it
  14. hahaha, really?? has anyone used duct tape successfully? Pictures?
  15. Yea it probably is mostly cosmetic...but that doesn't mean I don't care about it...I did buy a supersport after all, and probably would have been happy with a sbeII had it not been for how sweet the ss looks. Every time I go out shooting it gets worse. I doubt they would give me a free replacement, because I'm sure I caused it somehow, it didn't start peeling on its own. What I'm really looking for is a way to stop it...some sort of spray on coating or whatever. I found a can of this stuff in my garage...only thing I have that could maybe help: http://www.texsport.net/waterprooferseam-sealer-p-118.html Anyone know anything about this, or have any other recommendations? thanks for the replies
  16. Hey guys, I've had my supersport for around 9 months now and the recoil pad is getting worn out. Was wondering if anyone knows what I can do to prevent any further deterioration...I really don't want to shell out $125 for a new one. If I don't stop it now than I think it will be too far gone in a few months...I put about 150 rounds through it a week. Here's a video and some pictures: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lbhj3d-bd3A Here's a third, they only let me post 2 http://i43.tinypic.com/b96ob5.jpg any suggestions?
  17. good info dude...I think ill prob just get what I like...ill be going to a couple gun shops a week from today and and ill just shoulder a bunch till i find a perfect one. I'll let you guys know i guess....if any1 has anything else to say I'll still check back here a couple more times b4
  18. wow, so many to choose from...definitely a little overwhelming. I'm starting to think that I may not want a specific trap gun, because I'm definitely going to be using whatever I get for a little bit of skeet, sporting clays, and maybe some hunting also. I mean I'll probably shoot trap 90% of the time with it, but it definitely won't be 100% Just not sure...I guess I have more time to think about it though. Someone from our club went down to San Antonio with his SBE2, so now you know 1 person who's done it, lol. He's mostly a skeet shooter though, but he still did all the other events including trap. Maybe I should just stick with my dads Browning citori...its not the trap version, just the regular one...I do pretty well with it (19-22's) its just old and ugly and beaten up pretty bad, but it shoots fine. Who knows...i gotta do some thinking...I do like shooting auto's more though... im just digging myself in a hole now... time to stop talking...ill check back in a few hours. thanks for all the help every1 Ill ask the guys about the shootout at the crossroads and see if we've ever gone. probably not, at least not for a while...we don't compete much....at least not this year
  19. holy crap...yea...talk about a small world
  20. Hmmm, well I'm a little lost now, I mean the club already has a bunch of 1100's and what I think are 391's....and I don't really like either that much. And I'm currently using my dad's Browning Citori which is alright, but I still feel like there is something better out there for me....maybe not. I guess I should rule out a Benelli then...that's too bad I was leaning in that direction. Dang...well now I'm completely lost. I shoot for the University of Illinois...we don't go to many big tournements, but a few guys from the team went down to texas for the big one in San Antonio I think. any1 have thoughts on the Browning Cynergy classic trap....doubt I could afford it, but it's the most beautiful o/u i've ever seen. I do shoot skeet about 1/5 of the time too (and at all competitions) so maybe I should factor that in? Thanks for the advice so far, keep it up.
  21. hmmm, the 391 isn't bad...but I'm not sold on it, and I know I listed plenty of gas guns, but idk if I want a gas gun...maybe....but I feel like the inertia system would just be so much easier to mantain. I really don't care about recoil. I only shoot once or twice a week, and only like 125-150 shells each time, and I've haven't gotten a bruise or anything from shooting since I was like 12. I'll definitely take a closer look at the 391...I still have 2 weeks to decide (when school ends) so the more advice the better.
  22. Hi everyone, I'm on my colleges skeet & trap team, but I mostly shoot trap. The club has a few Remington 1100's which are decent, and a few Semi-Auto Beretta's (not sure what model). I used both of those for a semester and they were decent, but their kinda old and most club members use their own guns. So I started using my dads Browning Citori over/under 12GA. I liked it, but its about 15 years old and pretty beat up, and I think I liked shooting a semi-auto better...so I plan on buying my own this summer with money I've got saved up. Now to the point...I like the: Vinci and SuperSport. (The SBE2 also, but not as much) Also like the Franchi i-12, not as much though. I think the Remington 105CTi II is pretty cool (I think the downward ejecting would be more convenient/polite for trap shooting) Also like the Beretta trap Teknys but it might be a little too pricey (trying to keep it under 2K) Also very interesting in learning about the KRISS MVS, but theres like no info on it...and no release date or pricing, so who knows. If any1 knows about how much that'll cost, or when it might be out that would be cool. Basically I just want some advice or opinions...whatever's on your mind, I just want to hear from people. Finally would like some opinions if any1 has shoots a 20 gauge for trap...I might be thinking about that. It's probably a bad idea, but I plan on buying a 12 GA over/under in like 3-4 years and I don't wanna have 2. whatever...im ranting...if I think of anything else I'll edit this or something. Edit: Also like the Browning Maxus, i knew i forgot one...its kinda ugly and boring looking, but if it's really good, not sure how much i care.
