Benelli or Beretta

Postby jcsolution » Sat Mar 25, 2006 5:54 pm

Looking to buy a new shotgun. I was looking at the Benelli Super black eagle 2 and the beretta extrema. Has anybody shot both and how do they compare.

You probably aren't going to get a whole lot of answers, because this topic has been beaten to death. Try doing a few searches, heck, just go through a few pages on this forum, and you'll find all you need to know.

they both are about the best semi's you can get so shooting wise they are equal... have you shouldered them both yet?... if not do that first thing before you try to make up your mind... if you have and still dont know which one to get try drawing straws... or ennie meenie miney moe it... you wont be disappointed with either choice

They both have the same owner and from what i hear are both very reliable guns. I would get the SBE II simply because it is supposodly easier to clean.

I agree with gooseboy, SBE are little bit easier to take apart and clean. But either way you go you are going to get a good gun. There are hundreds of threads on this floating around the internet. and they all get the same responses. The owners of the Berretta say extrema's the best, and the owners of the Benelli say the SBE 2 is the best. And those who have shot them both are split about 50/50. Go to the gun shop, shoulder them both, and go with wich ever one feels the best. I wouldn't beleve the all critisism that you hear against each gun. They are both quality.

I was just looking at the official Beretta web page that details the the features of the Extrema II. In the second paragraph down it discusses the sizes of 12 gauge ammo it will handle. According to the text it will fire anything from the two and three-quarter target loads through the THREE and ONE-QUARTER inch magnum shells. If they don't even know the shells their gun is designed to handle--------- maybe you should buy the Benelli!! Check it out below.

For one, I am not comfortable at all with them. That alone would not keep me from reccomending them, as there are several guns that don't fit me that I think are good guns.

I don't reccomend them because I have seen too many SBE (I & II's) break in the field, including my own (and I sure don't have that gun now). One guy I know with a new SBE II that he paid 1400 bucks for takes his 'ol Mossy in the truck as backup. One season, and it has broken on him about every 3rd time.

I'd take my 11-87 way before I take out a SBE.

SBE 2, you will love it. I havent had any problems with mine. Extremely light, but kicks a bit.

thats because the last 1/4" of the shell is crimped. The shells actually do measure 3 1/4 inches, until fired.

I hear this stuff a lot about the Benelli guns. I own one, also have a couple Beretta auto's and Remingtons as well. Nevere had a problem with any of them. So tell me what keeps breaking on all you and your friends Benellis?
More ammo! I need to shoot something!

I would go with the Benelli. If you could find even an older used SBEI you would be happy.

Im with plainsman- Buy American, good, cheap, reliable guns, besides, the job you save could be your own.

I own a Mossberg 500a, 835 waterfowl edition, and a Remington 870, both Mossys are good, the Remington flat out sucks, but mabey it is just a lemon, I am not sure.

But i would go with a Mossberg, although i see you are interested in semi-autos, and i have never shot a 935(semi- 835), i am sure there a good gun.
