Benelli Vinci

9 posts in this topic

I am thinking of picking one up but at $1200 a piece I'd like to hear from people that have some experience with them. Thoughts, rumors or actual experiences anyone?

Not sure how many people will have experience with them, as I don't think they have been around that long. Could be wrong.....looks slick though! Love the Benneli's!!

Ugly gun! Handles nice and is very easy to assemble and disassemble. Sold the only one we had and haven't heard a report from him yet. I'm sure it will function well as I'm sure Benelli doesn't want to put out a flopper and tarnish their good name.

I looked at one. They are Different but still a benelli! I am sure they will shoot atleast as good as the rest. I love my SBE. I am thinking of getting a pheasant gun in the near future and the vinci is on my list. Along with a few O&Us.

I got to take 4 shots with one this spring at a show, went 4/4 on pigeons, very smooth, felt quicker than an SBEII, about like my SX2, only lighter.

I dont know why you would buy a 3 in chamber for 1200 when you could buy a 3.5 inch chamber for 100 more

in my opinion the sbe 2 camo is the best shotgun out there

Very simple 3 is alot ligher if you don't hunt geese no use for 3.5 i would guess about a pound or more which is alot if you carry it all day...

just picked one up last wednesday and got to try out on a few roosters in S.D over the weekend. black with 26 inch barrel. I already have a Super Black Eagle so I dont need another 3.5 inch. Havent tried any target loads thru it but with hunting loads the recoil didnt seem any different. Still trying to get used to the safety in front of the trigger. $1150 is the price the dude told me but I traded off a Browning Silver and a 9mm. Cheapest I seen anywhere.

I finally had one in the shop to switch the safety to left hand. They are internally similar to other Benelli's except the spring has been moved. They (Benelli) are brilliantly simple, why didn't anyone think of that years ago guns. Still with I could justify one.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
