I just received my PAL (Canadian Possession and Acquisition License) and I am looking to buy my first gun. I am not new to shooting at all. I have never done waterfowl, but I am interested in giving it a try, I mostly shoot clay.
After a lot of research and advisement, the Benelli Super Black Eagle II looks like a fantastic gun, and the Benelli Super Black Eagle II Waterfowl Edition only adds to that.
My question is, do the features on the Benelli SBE2 Waterfowl Edition($2900) warrant it's $1200 price increase from the standard Benelli SBE2($1700)?
The other thing is that, I have a friend willing to sell me a slightly used Benelli SBE2 Waterfowl Edition for about $1600, I am trying to be conservative but not cheap, should I be looking for something better at a lower price, or a used standard Benelli SBE2?
Benelli SBE2 Waterfowl Edition comes with:
Rob Roberts Custom Triple Threat Chokes
Custom Bolt Handle
HI VIZ Comp front sight
Paracord Survival Sling
28" Crio Barrel with lengthened and polished forcing cone
Benelli SBE2 Standard comes with:
Large Trigger Guard
Heavy Duty Magazine Cap
Hard Gun Case
Comfortech Shim Kit
They both come with ComforTech Gel Recoil Pad and Comb insert.
I am waiting for a response from Benelli to confirm or deny that you get all the standard extra's with the Waterfowl Edition.
Thanks for reading this and I look forward to your responses.
