Benelli shotgun, which one?


Recommended Posts

What are all the birds he hunts? Because if he hunts turkey and geese, I would definately get him The SBEII. IMO the legacy and the Montefeltro are to nice of a gun to even use. The ultralight is a great pheasant gun, light and quick. The M2 is a great gun too but I use 3 1/2 for all my waterfowl, which is the reason I would prefer the SBEII.

If he has other guns for turkey hunting, get him the Ultralight or the Legacy for birding.

 

If he is going to use this one for turkeys and other upland birding, get him the SBEII in the black synthetic with 24" barrel.

The 3.5" will be great for turkeys, and he can shoot any other length he wants for smaller game.

 

Waterfowlers and clay shooters need longer barrels to help line up longer passing shots, but the 24" will be great for close cover and for turkeys.

 

I wouldn't get him a camo gun for birding. Too easy to lose, and the camo really isn't necessary.

The flat black is also fine for turkeys. Never had a problem with one seeing mine.

 

The SBEII is also much easier to clean the M2, because the receiver comes in half with the top half being the barrel extension.

This makes cleaning a breeze.

 

I hope he's getting you something as nice as what you're getting him! :)

Much easier to clean doesn't make the M2 difficult though does it? It can be a bit misleading for someone not familiar with either reading that statement. We are fans of both really aren't we Tucker ??

No. I'm a fan of the SBEII.

The M2 is a decent gun, but I can't see buying it instead of the SBEII for any reason other saving a few dollars.

 

And if the SBEII is easier to clean than the M2, then logic dictates that the M2 is more difficult to clean than the SBEII.

If I were you, I would get him a gift certificate at a local shop if you know where you want to purchse the gun or make up a certificate yourself on the computer en***ling him to a new Benelli. He may have strong preferences that you are not aware of. I have several Benellis as well as numerous other guns and I would never want anyone to buy me one that I had not picked out. Besides appearance and the versatility of the gun, there is the matter of gun fit (quite important) to be considered.
