SBEII problems and questions

I've got a buddy that posted this to another shotgun forum, but in having just found this I thought I'd put it here for him to see if someone here hopefully knows something:

 

"I bought my SBE2 in June. I put over 500 rounds through it during dove season in Sep. and it didn't give me any problems. Then I put about 500 more 3 1/2 rounds through during this duck season and it was fine.

 

Now all of a sudden it is giving me all kinds of grief. Before you read this keep in mind that I am very nice to my gun and clean it after every 30 rounds or so. I am talking about taking it apart and cleaning everything and slightly lubing everything up exactly according to the manufactor.

 

What it does every 5th round of shots or so, it is taking the third shell and instead of loading it into the chamber it is acually spitting it out of my gun 4 feet away. No wonder I have been going through so many shells. The first 5 times it happened I just thought that I had frogotten to put in the third shell. But a couple of weeks ago I acually saw it out of the corner of my eye fly form my gun and I went and picked it up and cussed very loud because I could have doubled on a set of greeneheads. This has happened a total of about 12 times in the last month.

 

Now I have switched ammunuition and it has'nt spit out a full shell yet. What it is doing now is, not loading the third shell completely into the chamber. I just have to give it a little push and then I can shoot it. I am happy doing that because at least I can get three shots out of it but still I loose time doing that.

 

I called Benelli and they told me to send it in but I would'nt get it back until after duck season. I just thought that if you spend $1200 on a brand new gun it should function properely for at least the first duck season.

I hope no one has this many problems. I have heard nothing but god about the SBE2 that is why I bought it.

 

Any ideas?"

 

And:

 

Well, I took the troublesome super black devil II out for another spin last weekend. I don't know why I keep putting myself through this grief but sense I spent so much money I wanted to use it. It started spitting out the third shell again consitintantly, so I thought I would outsmart it and only put in two shells. Well just my luck it started spitting that one out as well. I just can't win. My gun is the offical SBEII one shot wonder!

 

I wish Benelli would give me some advice over the phone or pay for a local gunsmith to check it out.

After duck season I am going to send it in and hopefully they either reconditon it or replace it.

 

Regardless I am going to sell it because I am going to go for a over and under. Not much can go wrong with that hopefully. If anyone wants the one shot wonder after I get it back form Benelli the first 800 dollars takes it.

 

Questions:

 

-Anyone here have an answer that will keep him from having to send it in? Some minor fix that needs to take place maybe?

 

-If he does sell it, does the warranty go with the gun, or no?

sdkidaho,

 

Regarding does the warranty go with the gun the answer is no.

 

What Is Not Covered – This warranty does not cover defects or damage caused by: 1) misuse or accidents; 2) failure to provide proper care or maintenance; 3) failure to comply with instructions in the owner’s manual; 4) normal wear and tear; 5) rust or corrosion; 6) obstructions in the barrel. This warranty does not cover any claims made by the second or subsequent owner of any Benelli product.

http://www.benelliusa.com/customer-service/warranty.tpl

 

 

From Benelli's website on the SBEII model:

 

A new corrosion resistant recoil spring and guide remain free of rust and ride in a new recoil tube that is easily cleaned by removing the quick-detachable recoil pad.
Hopefully someone can suggest a remedy for this problem. However, I think your friend is going to have to send the gun back to Benelli for repairs.

 

Regards threeshot

Wonder what the verdit was on this old post after sending it back for ejecting the unfired shells?
