Benelli Date of manufactuer code?


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


I am planning on purchasing a SBE 2 in the coming days. Is there a way to know when it was produced? A code or something? I want to make sure I am buying a new gun and not something that has been sitting in the store for awhile.


Thanks, Joks

Thanks Guys,


That will be helpful information for this weekends possible purchase. I cant wait to get that SBE 2


Make sure you lubricate inside of hte recoil tube with the plunger pressed in with a screwdriver and work the CLP or oil in there good, or you will be pissed off at your new purchase like I was when it failed on me in the field! No problems since. (the manual is not specific as to what needs to be lubricated, only shows disassemly and reasessembly)
