Okay so I broke down and bought a benelli sbe 2 in December of 2015, and from that point on I've been nothing but disappointed with it. First of all the forearm has an unacceptable amount of play in it for a shotgun that costs 1600 dollars retail. Benelli claims it's to allow for expansion during freezing conditions, however my uncles, and my friends sbe2 forearms are solid. The next problem is unreliability, everyone claims how reliable these guns are however mine has jammed 4 times. I broke the firearm in with 3 and 3.5 inch shells, have cleaned it religiously, have ran it dirty, and it has jammed no matter what, it's jammed with 3.5 inch hevi shot, remington heavy game loads, and 3 inch black clouds. Another thing I hate is the "benelli click", I knew of this before I bought it, but didn't think it would be as easy as it is to cause this click. If you set it down in the duck blind a little too hard on the butt, don't count on it going off when you need it most, like when your first drake pintail sets up in the decoys and flies away laughing as your gun is going click. Last but not least the point of impact is off at least 8 inches. Using the factory modified, kicks gobbling thunder, carlsons long range and mid range steel chokes it will shoot 8 inches left and about 4 inches high. I don't mean to bash these firearms because I know many people love there's and have great reliability with them, I love my supernova, and I know benelli makes great guns. Perhaps I got a lemon. I see a winchester sx3 or browning a5, maxus or silver taking this benellis spot in the near future.
