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.

    • Looking for a Wild win tonight, I don't think Kemper is going to get the start in this important game. I don't think anyone likes the five day layoff. Typical got to mess with something that works instead of just playing. Wild will come out of the break with a lot of games to play and little time off to rest anyone.
    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
