Im wanting a shotgun that does it all. I want to be able to hunt dove, duck, turkey and any other game of that nature with just one gun without changing parts. So out of the Benelli line which will best suit my needs. I looked at the Super Vinci, Vinci and Super Black Eagle 2. All them seem bout same in function. Any advice is appreciated.

I shoot a sbeII and I love it. the only problem it that you have to keep it super clean and well lubed. I was told by a man one time that I was buying a high dollar single shot and when it gets cold its true. once the temps get into the teens the action is slow and it jams up but I'm happy

If you're stuck on Benelli, I'd choose the SBE2. The Vinci is the most non-ergonomic gun I've ever fired. Having fired pretty much every semi-auto shotgun around that price range, it was the worst.

Sbe2 I own two of them and never a problem! I can't stand the safety on the Vinci. The trick is running it with little to no lube when it gets cold or dusty that lube turns gummy and slows everything down.

Find a used Benelli Super 90. Unless you need to shoot 3.5 inch magnums it's hard to beat the Super 90.

If you read a Benelli owners manual you will see that it suggest only a small amount of lube. By small, it means like ONE drop in the bolt slides. By running it almost "dry", you will never have the sluggish action or jams associated with it. I think a benelli M2 may be one of the finest hunting shotguns ever made.
