SBEII Magazine Question


Recommended Posts

I just bought an SBEII, going shooting today. I have a few questions:


1. The "specs" page on the website says the capacity is 3 + 1, is that for 3.5 or 2 3/4 shells?


2. When I had the fore-end cap off i noticed an orange piece of plastic under the retainer ring, is that a magazine plug? If I take it out (can I?) do i get more capacity or do I need to take it out to get the advertised capacity?


3. North Carolina specifies a max capacity of 3 rounds for duck hunting. Is that in the magazine or total?


Lots of questions I know, but I don't see the answers in the manual.

Federal Law says when you are hunting Migrating Birds,

your gun must be limited to holding 3 shells.

That is 1 in the chamber and 2 in the magazine.


The orange piece of plastic you mentioned is the plug

which should limit the magazine capacity

to 2 shells. It should not matter which length shells

you use, or combination of lengths.


It is best to test it yourself. If you can put three 2-3/4"

shells in the magazine, even if you are actually using

longer shells, you would still be considered illegal.


No more than 1 in the chamber and 2 in the magazine

for Hunting Migrating Birds.
