Thanks for the info. It's a 2000 SBE


I was hoping it was a II, but I bought it anyway. It was in such good condition, perfect except for a small scratch on the left side of the receiver. Super smooth action and most importantly it fit great - I knew I wanted when I put it on my shoulder.


I paid $650, seemed like a fair deal considering the great condition it was in (black stock) and he had all the chokes for it.
