Ugh.....like many Vinci owners im a bit irritated after the release of this. Dont get me wrong, I love my gun, but i mulled over Vinci vs SBEII for months and felt the vinci was more comfortable. Still no accessories for it after waiting for months (unlike in Italy where you can get different colors/cheeck comb/pistol grip), was told by CS that accessories were on tap (and never materialized) and now this - errrrggg !! I guess i shoulda seen that coming though...its all about marketing. Benelli got my $1400 and because im erked might get $1700 for the new one :-), crap.
Its kinda like when Chevy had the extended cab truck in the early late 80s with the "3rd" door..then a couple of years later i guess some designer said "oh wait why dont we have an extended cab with 4 doors". Marketing ploy, then the 3 door models were worth nothing on trade or private sell.
Maybe i can get rid of my Vinci for an year or two old SBE II slug pistol grip version in Adv. Timber....oh wait, prolly not...those SBEII owners are probably happy with thier gun/access. If i wasnt bald i woulda ripped my hair out lol....oh well there is my rant, i feel better now..sorta.
