Here is my story..... At a family meeting about 10 years after the passing of my grandfather my grandmother wanted to do something to remember him. She decided to give each of the grand children $1,000. and let us decide what we would like to buy as a memorial to him. As he and my grandmother were both on the board of directors of the NRA and I grew up shooting with my grandfather I decided I would buy a super black eagle and have his name engraved on the reciever........ After buying it I found It was shooting low.....so i sent it back to Benelli and they told me to stack the beads (aim higher!) and it was fine. So later that year I was at a friends sporting goods store and saw the new super back eagles had a substancially higher rib in the back........ Which in turn is what i told the Benelli gunsmith I spoke with was the problem with that gun. I have tried several times to persuade customer service to exchange barrels and they tell me I have to buy another barrel through a local dealer!! That is not the kind of service I ever expected from Benelli! They told me the change was because people wanted a higher rib............UHHH!! Maybe they wanted to hit what they were aiming at. My grandmother is now 97 soon to be 98 in a few days and I am soo frustrated with Benelli I can't see spending another $425 on another barrel so I will be accepting offers from anyone who like to stack beads.
