Left Handed SBE or wait for SBEII?


Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for a left handed semi auto 12 gauge. So far Benelli is the only left handed shotguns I've found.


I went to my local dealer today and they just happened to have an all black SBE for $1099. I liked it, but didn't want the 28" barrel, I'd rather have a 26", but it isn't that big of a deal.


Anyway, the guy told me that left handed models were extremely hard to find, and that this was especially true with the camo models and the new SBEII.


I will be calling some dealers within 50 miles or so to see what they've got on hand.


Couple questions:

Is the $1099 reasonable for a SBE?

For deer to duck (more duck and geese than anything), is the SBE a good shotgun?

If a SBEII could be found, is it worth the extra price?

I believe you have been offered a fair deal on an sbe 1. I have owned an sbe 1 for 3 years and am pleased with its performance. The ease in tear-down and cleaning is important. If you are not interested in using 3.5 inch shells, you might look into the m1 or m2. The sbe2 is probably an excellent gun so the choice between the two is more than likely personal.
