Benelli Super Black Eagle® II Semi Auto Shotgun
The perfect shotgun
I hunt a lot woodies in south Ga, so I needed a gun light enough for the beaver sloughs and creeks, but versatile enough to knock them down at 45 yards when pass shooting. I found the gun. It shoulders so effortlessly, I can knock them dead at 5 yards when they get right up on me and I can blast them at the tree tops when they're not coming into my hole. I also took it on a trip to this year and killed a limit of Mallards in below freezing temperatures. My blindmate was shooting an a400 and it froze up. He bought a SBE2 when we got back

This is a well made firearm. Wasn't my first benelli so I knew what to expect. Some people complain about it kicking too hard with the inertia system, but it doesn't seem to bother me. If you shoot side by side with a gas operated firearm you will notice the difference. Light and slim, easy to point and always on target. Expected it to require some break in period so I fired 300 rounds.. no jams or malfunctions. Simple design and very easy to disassemble and clean.

Amazing Shot Gun
My dad bought this after his 11-87 busted apart after about 24 years of hard abuse, he loves that it is light and reliable. The gun doesnt rust but after about 4 years the coating is starting to chip and i will have it redone along with my M2. He has put about 200 rounds through it with only one jam and it happened to be the first time he has shot at a deer with it and he was not able to shoot again. i have put about 1500 rounds through it and have never had a malfunction. i have shot some of the crappiest trap loads to 3 1/2 inch turkey loads and it cycles everything!!! love the gun!!

Kills on one end, cripples on the other
Being a port side shooter (left handed) there isn't many gun manufacturers to select from. Yeah I got a 1100 and an 870 but for a top end piece the Benelli is the way to go. What I have to say has nothing special to do with the gun being right or left handed. The SBE is a solid well built shotgun. The finish is well done with no flaws. The gun shoulders perfect, comes right up and provides a quick site picture. I mainly only waterfowl hunt and wanted to step up from a 3" to a 3 1/2" shotgun. Though pricey the Benelli seems to be the benchmark of high end shotguns. The gun is light in comparison to my 1100 and the felt recoil is well it gets your attention. After 1 and 1/2 boxes of 3 1/2's on a sea duck trip I passed the gun along to my son and needed to take a break.
