sleepydoc Posted October 7, 2004 Share Posted October 7, 2004 Welll the first major workout for my SBEII. The gun fires well cycles all sorts of ammo right down to 7/8 oz loads but... after a long dark walk to my hunting site, got set up the birds started coming ing I raised fired and it felt like someone stabbed me in the shoulder. It's war out in Saskatchewan this week 8C so I'm wearing light clothing and after i looked at the gun to see what went wrong I saw I had no recoil pad. It had fallen off. I've had a lot of guns but this is an absolute first, the recoil pad is basically psuhed in and relies on friction. So here's the theory . On firing the SBEII butt stock is mre flexible due to the chevrons and appears to actually open up a bit loosening the grip on the recoil pad allowing to become unseated hence loose. The answer after I hope to get a replacement pad ( I will use my 11-87 for the rest of the hunt) is to either put in a screw in the side of the stock which voids the warranty or use a large swatch of duct tape to ensure the pad stays in. ( great advertising for Benelli when I have to explain that! to my fellow shooters!) Benelli.. What on earth has happened to your quality control?
