Fair price for my SBE2b

Postby Nerdwick » Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:57 am

I was wondering what you guys think would be a fair market value for a Benelli SBE2 American would be?

I bought this about a year and a half ago brand new for around 1300 plus tax I believe (would have to dig up receipt)

Sent it off to Tarjac to have it professional hydro dipped in max4 a few months later ( was 100% black ) which cost around 185.00 if I remember correctly.

For those of you that aren't familiar with the gun it is the same as the sbe2 just without the comfortech stock and hard case.

What do you guys think is a fair price?

Thinking about getting a new A5 and am thinking about putting this up for sale soon...

Thanks for the input fellas

The American models are going for $1100 new including tax at several of the stores around my area. Its going to be hard to get what you've got in it, out of it. People generally aren't willing to allow more money for aftermarket dipping, especially if you went with some nonrecognizable dealer instead of a recognized one. Mainly being that if they allowed for it on your gun then they would be within a $150-$200 of what they could buy a brand new factory camoed Comfortech gun for. I've owned one of the American models and I freaking loved it. One of the best deals to be had on a solid duck gun. With a Limbsaver pad on it they're hands down less recoiling than the comfortech. If I was serious about selling it I'd hope to get $1150-$1200 but expect to be closer to $1000. May be better off just trying to find someone who might want to trade with you.

I know you never get what you paid for it...just never see these come up for sell on the forums....

I think 1200 seems decent, and that is right about what I was thinking.

I'm in no rush because I haven't picked out the replacement yet...God knows that will be the biggest chore with all the info and models out there now.

Why are you offing the SBE and getting a different autoloader?

If the new ones are going for 1100 you should expect 800 as a 9/10 gun. Aftermarket dipping wont add much to the value. No way is someone going to pay a new price for a used gun just because its been dipped.

I just sold a SBE2 28" with factory camo, quake sling, and Wolff springs, for $1200 shipped. I would expect yours to go for 900 or less.

I had an American black/camo 28" that I sold for $950. When I bought mine I paid about $1300. Used price is driven by new gun value. If you get 900 be happy as you can buy them new for $1100 or so in camo.

Looks like they stopped making these over a year ago . The first models came out in black/camo and then they started making the all camo after that. But looking at the Benelli website it is nowhere in the line up for SBE2's. I new I would ver get the money I payed for dip because they started making them like that and would loose some on on it being used.

But fellas are getting some hella good deals because there is no way in hell I could buy a gun for 1599 (Current store price I believe) and sells it for 900 no way a guns value should drop 600 bucks because you shoot a couple of rounds through it.

Guess it is what it is...thanks for the input guys!!

This is from Benelli website for the SBE2 line up (I know store prices are somewhat cheaper) but no American series available...

Most people buy a gun and keep it. They don't need to worry about loosing any coin since a well cared for gun should outlast them. It's the guys that have to switch up every couple of years, or the ones who bought the wrong gun, that loose coin.
