    Local dealer has the carbon fiber stocked version LNIB for $1600. 30", four chokes, looks like a pretty nice rain gun. Has anyone shot one of these? Any opinion?

    Yes the super sport is the best auto for sport shooting in my opinion. I had one and traded it for a XT, I wish I wouldn't have. 1600 is a good deal too

    Yes - nice gun, OK price, not great IMHO, but certainly fair. If you are looking for the same gun in camo see if he has a Cordoba. Same gun minus the carbon fiber stock, and either flat black or camo. Also has a textured stock that makes it "tacky" and very easy to maintain a good hold.

    For a pure target gun though, that Super Sport is really hard to beat.

    I have a Benelli SS great gud. I just like the 28" barrel better then the 30". The 30" just feels to long for me.

    After bouncing around the net to several forums, about the only sporadic complaints I've seen relate to ejection problems with lighter loads and a feeling by some that it's too light for trap. Anyone have problems or opinions in those two respects? I'm leaning toward trying to do a trade.

    Just a word of caution to owners of Benelli's with the gel stocks: bouncing around some other forums, I found that some owners complain that getting solvents into the stock will cause the gel to degrade and leak and deform the butt stock. Benelli is supposedly aware of the issue. You may want to take care that you don't over lubricate with oil or solvents to the point that some may drain into the butt stock. Storing muzzle down might be wise just in case.

    I have a Benelli Super Sport, like new with case, carbon fibre stock, 30 inch bbl., two comb inserts (std and the next higher), 5 chokes with wrench, manuals, etc. just like it was purchased new. Shot less than a flat of shells, I'll sell for $1450 plus shipping. Will send pictures if interested.

    For that kind of money you can buy a really nice Beretta. The 391 is the single most popular gun in Sporting Clays, 5 Stand & FITASC. The Beretta Gas operated semi-auto's are not going to kick like mules. The benelli semi-auto's are nice mechanical guns but NOT as soft shooting or in the same class as Beretta.

    Shoot safely, well and often,
    Tom

    Tom,

    This gun is worth every penny of what I am asking.
    If you love Beretta's ... great!!
    Don't post B.S on this thread that has nothing to do with the sale of my Benelli.
