Re: Need a new Semi Auto shotgun!
I have a SBE II that is a little over 8 years old. It has been put through absolute hell. Round count is around 10,000 rounds through it and has never let me down. I hunt salt marsh to the muddy snow geese fields as well. I shoot alot of 3.5'' shells as well. This gun fits me better than any of the others but that doesn't mean it will fit you the same. I would buy what fits me the best, I think all the major brands are probably pretty good guns just get what fits YOU.
I have only dealt with Benelli customer service once to order a new butt pad but they were great then and have never heard anything but great things from others.
