Matchshot Posted February 21, 2008 Share Posted February 21, 2008 Has anyone else been disappointed with a new Super Black Eagle just out of the box? I saved, ordered and bought a left handed SBE II last week at Cabelas. Brought it home and started to assemble it out of the box. The forearm was so tight, I could could not get off the magazine tube. I was able to put the barrel on by sliding it all the way forward but when I tried to seat the barrel against the top of the receiver, there was an 1/8" gap that wouldn't close. On top of this the receiver was dinged through the Camo to the metal on two small spots on the side of the receiver. The gun is going to get dinged with use, of course, but I want to ding my own gun. Especially one this expensive. Am I ever let down. I am driving up to return it today, question is, do I get another or do I punt and buy something else? The 11-87 are on sale for half the price of the SBE's... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
