SBE vs. SBE II

Postby doane25 » Wed Jul 27, 2005 6:33 pm

i'm in the market for a new shot gun and was doin some looking around today. i have it nailed down to the SBE II in max 4. the guy at the counter told me that he didn't know much about the SBE II but that he did in fact have a SBE and loved the crap out of it. he said that his houldered better and thought the comfor tech was bs. he told me to get the regular SBE and save a couple hundred dollars. what do you all think? how do they compare?

I have the Super black and I love it with full choke shoots pattern like no other. But I have seen several SBEII come in with receiver wear but that should be fix some reason they where not right part or lubricated wrong I don’t know but they where getting wore but it should be fixed now. Far as I can tell SBE will do same job as SBE2 at little less cost.

The actions of the guns are identical. The SBE 2 weighs less, has floating barrel, and has the new recoil reducer stock. I would go with the SBE, I don't see a need for a floating barrel when waterfowl hunting.

Unless you really have a thing for Crio barrels then I would go with the SBE. Although, depending on how it fits you, the SBEII has adjustment for Cast which the SBE doesnt have. The SBE only has drop.

Happy hunting.

I'm also in the market & have been shopping the 2 guns... what I think I'm gonna do is get the SBE I & have 'em install a sure cycle, recoil reducer, pattern master choke tubes, easy hit sight & get the magazine extention (just in case I get to hunt in the snow goose conversvation season) all for about what an SBE II would cost. :thumbsup:

I have found an SBE I in MOBU that swings fairly nice. Plan B is to get the synthetic & have it (& accessories) camo dipped in the off season. :yes:

This is what I'm after... :help:

Working with guns all day every day, and owning both a SBE I & II. I would definately go with the II if you don't mind the extra $$. The chokes pattern much better than the originals(they are 1/2" longer) The "comfortech" system really does work at reducing felt recoil and muzzle climb. Both great guns, but the SBE I is now discontinued and will no longer be sold.
