QuailChaser Posted November 24, 2009 Share Posted November 24, 2009 :eek:Hey, I just bought a 10 yr old Super Black Eagle.. Camo pattern, 12GA 3 1/2" etc.. It does not look like it's been used too hard.. I had heard many good things about the SBE, but had never picked one up. I've hunted w o/u shotguns forever.. I duck/goose hunt twice a season, and have a Baretta 12 o/u that was kicking the crap out of me in a goose pit. It also weighed 20 lbs, (maybe a little less, ha) so lugging it to the pit was torture.. I also used it for turkeys, its killed a bunch of turkeys, but once again carrying it was a pita.. Ok, so now I own a 10 yr old SBE, did I make a mistake? I will say it comes up perfect for me. I had never picked up a semi-auto before that "felt" right. My head was always way to high. (I'm 6'5") anyway the SBE feels good. (In Cabella's) I have not shot it yet. I have a 30 day, no questions asked return policy. But the price was right, so I grabbed it. Any suggestions, on checking it out for problems? What are the issues with the original SBE? I hear keeping it properly oiled is key.. What are the main problems? Anyway, I like the feel of it, I just need to take it out for a round or two of trap & skeet, to see if it even fires. What chokes do you guys use for ducks & geese? With just one barrel I have to pick the right one.. Thanks, Jeff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
