Benelli Auto for dicks sporting goods


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me about the quality of the Diamond Auto shotgun that is built by Benelli exclusivly for Dicks sporting goods. The sales guy says it is just a small step below the super eagle. I already have the Stoger 2000 and know there is a huge diference.

I've looked into this gun before. It's actually a Franchi. I emailed Benelli CS and they confirmed that all manufacturing and parts are from Franchi. They said it is simply an I-12 modified to 3.5". It seemed like a nice gun, but look at the Franchi and immediately look at the SBE2 and you'll see a huge quality difference. Nicer price point than the SBE2, but there is good reason to pay more.

Thanks for clearning it up, scSBE.

I thought the Diamond models were Franchi, but you never know when something new hits the shelves at Dick's.


Yes, the 912 does not a SBEII make.

Read through the Franchi section for information on 912's.

I haven't seen a lot of satisfied customers.
