For all of you that wonder or have a super black Eagle II and say or think that it cannot cycle light loads or the finish wears off.....Your all wrong! I have put my benelli through some extremes lately and have shot light loads aprox. 3000 @ clays without 1 malfunction, the wear an tear on my gun is about what is expected with any shotgun! The Super Black Eagle II Rocks......Period!!!!!
And for all the X2 winchester fans....Please!!!!! It may cycle faster but who can shoot a 12 gauge to it's full potential that fast? The benelli cycles fast enough for most users...so, Who even cares about a nano second? B.S. if you ask me!!!!
If you wonder if benelli is worth the money...I have to say most definately, Don't waste your money on an inferior shotgun, buy the best...a Benelli!!!!
Also...After my first trap session (600 rounds) the only thing dirty on the gun was the barell...No gas operating system to mess with!
Take it for what it's worth..just my .02 cents!
