Canexpat Posted November 11, 2007 Share Posted November 11, 2007 Hi everyone. Proud new owner of a SBE II, left hand, in black, and synthetic furniture. I don't have much experience with shotguns; my other shotguns are a HD Remington 870 Police pump, and a recently purchased,used, Browning BPS pump, I liked the bottom eject. Until I bought the SBE II I would shoot clays with friends using the 870. After a couple months of abuse from everyone I broke down and got it right. I love the gun. The only failures (two) I've experienced were a result of my unfamiliarity with my weapon. My issues: The gun has a very sloppy forestock. When I take a shooting position I am aware of the forestock rolling slightly in my hand. A minor distraction, yet a distraction nonetheless. I don't consider this to be normal. I have yet to be able to completely remove the forestock, when cleaning, for fear I damage something. I've tried gentle force and I stop, I should be able to completely remove it from the barrel, correct? I recently joined a trap club and a member suggested I obtain a shell catcher. My searches have proven fruitless. There are suggestions for the Birchwood Casey model which do not appear to work with the left hand version of the SBE II. I like the discreet appearance of the T & S however they do not produce a unit for this gun either, according to their website. Has anyone modified an existing shell catcher or made one which performs adequately? I'd rather not use a rubber band. I was surprised to find this site the other night and look forward to contributing in some small way and learning from you all. I hope more people discover this forum.
