I just sent my SBE (new in 1997) to the company for trouble shooting a couple problems I've had.
1. It has "occasionally" failed to eject a spent hull over the past 3 years. Very difficult to determine what is the cause as nothing appears worn/broken and the loads are heavy/light/different lengths?? I did replace the recoil spring last year, was sure that would fix the problem but it happened again 3x last weekend. Now I'm frustrated and the gun is getting fixed or getting gone.
2. Second issue is the point of aim appears to be low and left when I sight it in for turkey hunting. I'm about 10" low and 5" left to the center of the pattern. I compensate when aiming but wondered if anyone else has the same issue. Chokes don't seem to make a difference, I've tried 3.
Any input on the above to help me regain my confidence in what I still feel is a great gun would be appreciated.
