Original SBE 1 vs SBE 2

Postby tbarto » Fri Apr 12, 2013 11:31 am

Looking for some feedback on a 10 year old Benelli SBE 1 vs newer SBE 2? I found a brand new, never shot, 10 yr old SBE 1 for sale. Just wondering if there are any owners out their that might have owned both guns. Which do you like better? Any reviews on both would be appreciated. Thanks!

My buddy owns one of the older 1's. I shot it some while I had my 2's. They look very similar inside to me but I didnt pay attention to every detail. The stocks look a little different but I myself liked shooting his old broke in gun a lot more than my new SBE II. It performs flawless. Hope you managed to buy the gun.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't buy it yet. Maybe.

I've had several of both. IMHO, the new ones are lighter, but the old ones are more reliable.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.
