I had SBE II about 10 years ago jammed, misfired, stove piped, you name it. Was told this was the gun to have. BS. So I went back to what I started with when I was a kid, a Beretta (extreme 2). This shot gun worked great for the first three years now it's miss firing all the time. took it to the gunsmith he said common problem with extreme 1 and 2's. He cleaned it got it back misfired opening weekend and has not stopped since. I want to get rid of this gun and get something reliable. Any suggestions? Please help.....

I have only one thing to say "BUY A PUMP OR STACKER" of your choice that fits.

are you cleaning or taking care of the guns? i've had a SBEII for years without a jam or stovepipe and my hunting buddy shoots a Beretta and never has any issues. We both clean them every week or so depending on use though. Those are both very quality guns and shouldn't have any problems if basic care is given.

Im thinking its not being properly cleaned or put back together. Ive had a sbe II for years with no jams. My friends shoot beretta's remington browning. Guns you hear at least one person say oh dont ever buy they're junk without problems. Try cleaning your gun more I'd say

It's not a cleaning issue. It's the same problem I had with mine; you need to have a gunsmith or Beretta install the improved version of your bolt pin and spring. This is a very common problem with these guns and has nothing to do with cleaning, good luck.

I had 9 malfunctions with my SBE II last season with 463 shots. My Xtrema II also malfunctioned a lot. Too much oil in cold weather is a problem. Dry lube is better. Cleaning and proper lubrication eliminates many malfunctions. Benelli and Beretta should make a video showing how to properly maintain their expensive shotguns.

I clean it regularly I don't think that is the problem. Where does one purchase a new bolt and spring assembly? Early in the season don't want to send it back now. I love the gun just want it to work. Thanks for the response guys very much appreciated. FYI gunsmith said do not mix synthetic with non synthetic oil or solvent as it turns to a varnish.

I have a Remington 11-87 that I started having problems with. I called Remington HQ and they sent me the parts FREE all of them! I needed a new trigger assembly. The bolt would not stay open after the last shell was shot and if you had the bolt open any small bump would cause it to slam shut. I called them and described the problem and just like that the parts (also needed the link for some reason) were in the mail. Fixed my problems. You can't ask for better service. No company sends you parts for free and no, the warranty was long gone. Yes I could buy a super new gun that costs way more that my Remington but sometimes you do need to buy a company that backs-up what they sale. Just saying.
