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.

    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.        
    • Volume wise it cuts the same as any othe 8" auger.  Does the Nils make finer chips than others?   I never saw the issue the few times I used mine.  Can you reverse the drill and push the slush down the hole.?
    • Sorry, but Ive had enough of the indepedent/liberturd fence sitter crowd pissing down their righteousness on reality.
    •   Makes no difference what place we are in or that Stall has scored 2 goals in the last 5 games (you call that bunches?).....who would not want to play the Wild in the first round at this point?  This is absolutley shocking to me....they appear to me like a ship without a Captain....7 games left to figure it out.
    •   I go fishing here whenever I need a laugh.  They are always biting.......well the big fat Sucker Fish anyway.
    • i have seen more useless products succeed, but I can't see a practical use for this thing. I do agree with the icing aspect as well as the battery life. U better have a option to free spool this. 
    • Bearsheet4brains to the rescue.    
    •   Then the bad wookies landed, trying to get everyone to believe they were gods and could cure everything with their magical potions, driving a few totally batpoop. Pretty soon there was name calling and bashing, and it just went on and on. Others that were smart left, and the ones still there continued arguing about what kind of people and things were better, with no respect for anyone or anything, since the gods no longer stepped in and stopped it, except to change words that had no meaning anyway. Pretty soon, it was all arguing wookies and people and other creatures, until the land of the forum exploded, throwing all the creatures spinning  out into space, where they formed their own little galaxies, and soon they all  started arguing and preaching and complaining and.....
    • Here is how the math works out on the 100 holes per day.  First off, not every hole gets fished.  Secondly, I am not just drilling holes for myself.  When I am with my kids or an older person or fishing partners who don't understand where the holes need to located on a particular area I might drill all the holes for 4 people to hole hop.  Thirdly, ice thickness plays a roll.  I will drill many more holes in a day on 16" of ice than 30".  I know this may be hard for some to understand but some people really truly actually will drill 100 holes in a day.  I am a very crafty ice fisherman who has adapted to extreme cold weather by using a portable "flip over" shelter and propane heater to keep myself warm and my equipment from icing up.  Yes, even when hole hopping.  That's why they call it a portable.  Haha.  
    • It vanished into thin air never to be seen again..... Hey leech I think that should work that will pull in boat loads of members.
