All I know is that a Benelli super black eagle in synthetic is the best waterfowl gun ever. I'm the clumsiest person ever and always manage to get my gun soakin wet while puttin deke's out and it will never freeze up! I have tried to get it to jam up and I cant. I once dropped it to the bottom of a slu and it was submerged in the mud. I had to feel around with my feet for it. thank god I found. I pulled it out and fired it. It worked like new.

My buddy has a Benelli SBE.

They do break and they will jam. His SBE has broken down (broken firing pin) more times than my Browning Auto 5, which has never broken. The SBE is a pretty good gun though, and I certainly wouldn't mind having one.

They are mechanical devices that will only take so much abuse, and need to be maintained. All mechanical devices can and will fail from time to time.
Just keep that in mind. :smile:

No doubt it is a great gun, however that is a bold ststment. The Beretta A391 Xtrema 3.5 is just as good, and for duribility and never jamming I would have to say a good pump gun like a Rem 870 might even be a better gun.

to be a duck hunter you need camoflauge, decoys, a place to hunt, and a BEnelli SBE, and some shells to put in it.
I love mine, I put a tru- glo adjustable choke on it, instantly ready for any type of shotgun hunting.

SBE is MONEY!!!!! :thumbsup:

ya right, you think a pump won't jam, :laughing: I've had em jam lot's. The xtreme, is way dirty'r cause it's gas operated, so it will fail before a sbe, and it's heavier, my sbe has been through hell and back, half the camo is wore off it, I don't feel bad putting it in the bottom of the boat and railin through a slough with it, and it consistantly works awsome, not to mention they are the fastest that's right the fastest semi produced.

Some of you dont seem to take to good of care of your guns... please tell me that after you drop them in mud, ect you check to make shure the barrel isnt plugged. if not thats just ridiculous. I know $/?t happens but there is a lot of dropping of guns, etc going on.

The extrema uses a combo system. The borrowed some stuff from benelli (rotating locking bolt). If the super black eagle is still going then the xtrema will be right beside it. Beddy shots an SBE me an Extrema side by side through thick and thin. Mine is jsut softer shooting cause it is heavier, but it is made to be a goose gun not a lightweight upland model.

I KNOW this will create alot of stir....but I gotta tellya, it is not the gun that kills ducks...it is the shooter. Anyone who tells me they will kill more birds with their Bennelli than I will with a Maverick is pretty much clueless. It is not the gun and there is no need to spend $1,200. I have those expensive and fancy pieces....they end up on the range and not in the blind.....and I do understand that the Bennelli's and the Extremas etc. are decent....but why are guys selling them so much in the classifieds???? Why are there so many posts asking for help on a myriad of issues from those expensive autos (broken carriers, jamming, trigger problems etc)???? I do know that no matter what the gun....if it is recently made it is most likely not as good as the oldies!

This is MY opinion and not meant to ruffle feathers!!!!!!

ps...I like my Benelli and Berretta!!! but my bread-n-butter piece is a Maverick!!!!

I have an Xtrema, but when the going gets tough I go back to the 870 Wingmaster. I like my semi auto cause I can shoot 3.5 inchers all day during the conservation snow goose season and not have a black and blue shoulder.

DUKHTR,

Another thought, why would anybody spend more than $20 on a call? My buddy's favorite call is worth $3 mine is worth $13 and I will gaurantee that we kill just as many if not more ducks than those guys with the expensive calls. It is the same principal.
If everybody shot a maverick then you would be paying $1200 dollars for it cause it is what everybody wants. THey could charge whatever they damn well pleased.

Just somethings to think about.
