SBE II Issues?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone else having trouble with the cheek recoil protection piece coming loose? Seems to happen after a few shots and needs to be tucked back in. Worsens as the temp lowers. Also seems like the recoil pad pops out rather easily. The dealer I got it from knows about the issue. I just didn't want to part with my gun before snow goose season is done. I feel confident that they and Benelli will make it right without me having to apply pressure. Just curious if anyone else is having this experience.

It sounds like you have never had to deal with Benelli in the past.

I wish you better luck than I had. I will give you the names of some good Berretta dealers when you are finished dealing with Bennelli.

I have a cordoba and have had no problem with mine. Be sure the comb pad is fully pushed in and over the internal lip on the inside. The recoil pad thing is what it is, but again if its been in and out a bunch it won't want to go over the lip all the way and hold on really well. I personally like a recoil pad that comes off that easy and can be replaced, or have interchangeable ones for different shooters.

Go buy a beretta so you can have a gun that's like a confetti popper when you take it apart and you have 236 thousand pieces and parts all over the room (that's gas operated beretta's). Or buy a recoil operated beretta so you can have a more expensive benelli copycat.

I've worked at a shop that sells both beretta and benelli for 9 yrs, and we do full in house warranty on new guns for 2yrs from purchase. I can tell you that I have no berettas in my safe and some benelli's reside there.

With that said the beretta extremas are good guns, but I challenge anyone to shoot side by side, on the same day a SBE II and an extema and you decide which is "smoother" or less "racky".

Bryce, your dealer and or benelli should take care of you on this one, and the dealer should do the leg work if there's a hassle. If not, find a new dealer.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
