    Another vote for the Super Vinci. I owe a SBEII and SV, and why I like them both, the SV shoots better for me, has less recoil, and is soo much easier to clean.

    I've got an M1-90 12 ga. that I purchased in 1987 or 88 and it's been an amazing gun. I've gone weeks without cleaning it and can count the number of times it hasn't cycled on 1 hand. I just purchased an M2 20 ga. and hope to get similar performance. It's a sweet little gun.

    I love my Vinci. Really like my M2 as well. The Vinci is the simplest shotgun I've ever had to tear down and do a good complete cleaning. 20201023_075645.jpg

    Why is that model any easier to clean then other Benelli models?

    I agree that was the best benelli ever made no spring in the stock so no worrying about taking the stock apart to clean the spring

    Two piece receiver too. That makes the receiver easier to clean. Two of my hunting buddies have them and love them.

    A twist of the magazine cap takes the lower receiver off and a twist of the buttstock removes it. No bolt return spring in the buttstock to clean ( it's located in the receiver). Very quick and simple.:)

    Id shoot a benelli if you handed me one of their pro staffers guns. The one I shot was suh weet. Tim Bradley's gun. I just can't buy one though.
