SBE 2 vs. SX3



Im looking into picking up a new bird gun im trying to figure out the major differences between these two. My second question has to do with barrel lenght both gun come in ether a 26in or 28in. does the 2in differences make a big enough impact?

I have both--the major difference between the two is price. The SBEII will run you $400-$550 more (if you include the $100 shopping spee certificates offered by a large national seller) Personally, I like the SX3 better and that is mainly what I shoot on waterfowl and upland. My advice is NOT to buy the SBEII unless you really like it and plan on keeping it awhile. They (like most all new guns now) are priced fixed and a slightly used SBEII will not re-sell for anywhere near what it costs to get them out the door new. I shot a SX2 for 4 years and resold it for $25 less than I paid for it 2 year ago....try that with a new Benelli. However, the Benelli's are quality guns...just expensive.

Hope this helps.
