  1. So on to the next question.....any leads on a rail for the M2 field that is pre-drilled? I bought the turkey gun version 24" barrel and steadygrip in Realtree. Would like to buy the scope base in realtree as well and am only finding one from a company called 'Traditions'.....just not sure it fits the M2. I also found a Weaver model that should fit fine but it's black. I may just buy it and throw some rattle can paint on it if I can't find the proper rail.
  2. I’ve decided to just buy another gun afterall and have a line in an older NIB M2 with steadygrip that is pre-drilled. Thanks for the help y’all!
  3. Have been to MGW site, problem with getting a slug barrel is I want to mount a red dot, so a new barrel doesn’t fully answer the need. I’m also considering one of those Burris Speed Bead mounts but honestly, I hate the look of them.
  4. My M2 is not predrilled at all. May bite the bullet and find a SBE2.
  5. Hi, currently, I have a M2 Field with 28" barrel in bottomland and a HK super 90 tactical. I'm taking my son deer hunting at the end of the month and my buddy told me to bring a shotgun that can shoot slugs; he added that the area gets dark quickly due to tree canopy cover and that I should have a red dot or a scope. I don't want to drill into the M2 so here's my options as I see them: 1. Buy a dedicated turkey gun that comes with a pic rail. 2. Buy a field gun with rifled barrel and pic rail. 3. Buy a M4; I actually have read of people killing deer this way! 4. Just attach a high viz sight and hope for the best 5. Buy a different brand altogether and likely buy a pump. My preferences would be number 1-3, not in that order necessarily. At one time years ago, I had a M2 Turkey with Red Dot scope and should never have sold it!! Any thoughts or suggestions? I can't afford more than about $1200.
  6. Got it. I realized last night that the fact I’m even asking this question is an indication of a bad move, price notwithstanding. Cheers.
  7. I want an M4. Just not sure if price is good for the camo version and will I hate the look of it after a month? Any opinions?
  8. Are all 'black eagles' slug guns? I just won one on an auction and have lots of questions.....didn't expect to win it!
  9. Hi, a little background....I've only ever shot the SBE1 and prefer the look to the newer version. As such, I found a NOS SBE1 that I will use for hunting. Needing a tactical shotgun, I figured it best to have a SBE in case I ever needed to swap parts (unlikely, but ya never know) so I found a used one with extended mag tube; will cut the barrel to 21" and have it threaded for chokes to also use for turkey hunting after dipping it camo. I want to get a pistol grip stock for it and I bought the SBE2 version by mistake, will it work? If not, I'd like to buy a black one and have read that the M1 version might work? thanks much, John
  10. all I can find are those for SBE2. Please help....and if it's a dumb question, I apologize in advance! First time turkey hunter!
  11. Sorry....where on the gun? I see lots of writing and such but really see nothing that would indicate a date...but, I might not be looking in the right place:)!
  12. I looked on gunbroker and one was advertised as fitting SBE1, SBE2, Supernova, etc. I was under the impression that they weren't interchangeable?
  13. Really not interested in trades; would prefer to have both stocks for different hunts. Cabela's doesn't have them for SBE1. Gunpartscorp can get them from Benelli but they're expensive enough that I think I'm just gonna buy a supernova with pistol grip and have two guns! $240 seems like a lot to me but I'm new to this; maybe that's OK. For another $350, I can have another gun....man, this is a sickness! I've gone from zero guns to three (maybe now four) in the space of 4 months...stop the insanity!!!
  14. Where is the date stamped? I see a serial number if that would help? Owners manual has 1/2003 on it.
  15. Sorry, just new and didn't realize it was aftermarket. Thanks!
  16. I'd be interested but they have them online for $89. I might get it from you if you can match that? http://www.gunpartscorp.com That's where I'm getting the pistol grip stock....or thru them anyway; it's coming from benelli
  17. in advantage timber.....any leads? Internet search is revealing nada as is the search function on this site. thanks!
  18. ..not the SBEII. I can't find one...argh! Prefer the Advantage Timber but would take black if I had to. thanks in advance!!! john
  19. I'll bet....benelli and cheap don't seem to mix!
  20. Honestly, I never noticed it. That is, until hot brass got down my shirt once...ouch. But, that's one time dealing with 1,000's of rounds. Just not sure about exhaust gases.... Anyway, going to shoot three different shotguns tomorrow; all right-handed. We won't be far from Mack's Prairie Wings so if none of them work out, I might be going by to get a leftie 'whatever they have in stock' shotgun! Maybe an M2 if I can sell a kidney in that time! Ha! Thanks for the help. I might just get that used rightie M2 afterall; we'll see.
  21. Yes, it has the 5 chokes. Another question....I shoot leftie (eye dominance) and have fired right-handed guns in the military very well with no problems. Recently, I shot a bolt action rifle with same results. But....I've not shot a shotgun before. What can I expect? Am I OK shooting a right-handed gun and is the M2 better or worse in this scenario? I've read opinions all across the spectrum on this so I guess what I'm looking for is an opinion as it relates to this particular gun. thanks a bunch!!
  22. Hi, I've found one locally for $800 in like new condition; he says he hasn't shot a box of shells through it and needs the money. comes with the standard chokes. I'm going duck hunting for the first time this weekend; first, is this a good deal and second, do I need to buy additional chokes before leaving town? I also want to turkey hunt with it; am I OK? My BIL is an avid duck hunter and wanted me to buy a SBEII but I just can't come up with that kind of money; he also said I should get 3.5". Can't get hold of him to ask about this deal so I thought I would turn here. thanks for the help.
  23. I want to get a supernova with steadygrip as I will also be doing some turkey hunting. The majority of my shooting experience has been in the military with a M-16 so I feel most comfortable with a pistol grip. Your thoughts? Thanks, John
