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.
