SBE2 vs M2 A gun mystery


Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone for your help! I really appreciate it,

 

The issue has been solved, A SBE 2 is ordered from the Benellli factory in Italy, and is on it's way, the moment i write this. The Sako dealer who imports Benellis to Sweden, had said that it wasn't possible to buy a SBE 2 in Europe, and said that "comforth" was the closest thing to a SBE2.

 

But I E-mailed the Benelli factory in Italty and saked them myself if it was possible to buy a SBE 2 in Sweden, and it was. So I called my Sako dealer, told him about this, and then he ordered a SBE2 from Italy!

 

Anyone who knows a god homepage to buy a mag extension from? You cannot buy them in Sweden!, And I would need a mag limiter aswell, other wise I wont be aloud to hunt whit it in Sweden!

dandy - your SBE II will (should) come standard with a magazine limiter. It's also called a plug and pretty much all semi-auto shotguns come with one. Here in the States it's required for migratory bird hunting so the gun can't hold more than 3 shells, but it can also be removed for certain upland bird hunting depending on the state you live in.

 

Good luck with your new gun. I just bought a new M2 and I really like it.

Both are pretty common items on ebay, but you'll have to find a shipper who'll send it to you.

Ops sorry ment shoutgun, in sweden rifle means both shoutgun and rifle tongue.gif

 

BTW, I have some friends in the US who can order a mag extension to me, and then mail it to me,

 

So which is the best homepage to ordere it from? Do you need to have extended licens for buying those things?

 

In Sweden we have a law, that you have to have a plug while hunting if your mag can take more then 2 bullets! 2+1. But not on the shooting range!!!!, Go for some wild clay shooting on the compact sporting range!! tongue.gif

If your SBE II is drilled and tapped, adding a Weaver 93 type rail should be a snap.

 

Does your SBE II have the four little plugs? If so, just pop them out and put on whatever base you want.

 

I'd go with some sort of quick release rings and base. I do that all the time on my muzzleloader as some states do not allow scopes.

 

I'll be in Sweden next week visiting family. Don't ask where, I have no clue! I'll also be in Italy the week after! No time to visit Benelli though...

But is it possible to add an picatinny rail? Are there any made for SBE2? Think it would be the ultimate solution.

 

Are there any dealers who sells Picatinny railes for Benelli SBE2, or any which could fit. Cause I have quick release rings on my Aimpoint that only fits Picatinny rail. And since im both shoting slugs and ordinary round whit the same barrel, I would like to have the option to quickly change betwin Aimpoint and open sights.

 

I could use aimpoint for ordinary rounds, but it aint alouded to use and optiks on competitions.

The gun cost you $1800 Sweden? And you said that $1 US = $8 Swedish? So the shotgun only cost you $225 US????

I think he means that the gun cost the equivalent of $1800 US dollars AFTER conversion from their currency.

 

It does not surprise me that in a high tax semi-socialist country like Sweden a SBE would cost $1800.00 dollars
