Dont get the slug barrel if it didnt come with it already on! I have an sbe ii with a satin walnut finish, its easily a 1,000 dollar project all said and done.(whatever anyone tells you trust me i know im going through **** trying to figure this out you DO need a new forend to accomadate the thicker barrel it is not the same i have the crio slug 24" matte black) after the barrel $600 the forend $165 then scope rings and bases. But whats most frustrating about the ordeal is benelli promised me that the forend on their site would work, so i bought it and it didnt work. I bought one from midwestgunworks.com also it didnt work. And what i mean when i say didnt work is that they looked like cheap chinese knockoffs made from balsa wood and stained with maple syrup. Nowhere and i mean nowhere close to looking like it matched the stock. All im asking for is the exact style forend on my field barrel. So im on try number 3 trying to get the right one, wish me luck and just know what your getting into if you decide to do this, its a pain and everyone i spoke to at benelli acted as if i was an annoyance for even asking where to find it and rushed me off the phone. Benelli is a great gun i own two of them but after being left in the dark by benelli on this im done giving them my money im sorely dissapointed by the whole experiance.
