So grizz, I have come to another dead end. Hoping you can help me out for a third time? I have tried Brileys, MGW, brownells and midway. The main places I have purchased aftermarket parts. But I can't find a oversized operating handle for a benelli vinci.? I got a chance to talk to a benelli rep at fall fair Saturday. Asked him where I could find one, do they exist? He said "they are around, the vinci is popular in the 3 gun world". He rattled off a bunch of websites. By the time I got home I could only remember one. scattergun.com. poked around on the site and nothing? You have any connections to the 3 gun world, maybe know who has a oversized operating (bolt handle) for a Benelli Vinci?
Both guns ready to get dropped off at Black Smoke monday eve.
It took more time waiting for my wife and son to decide and pick out a pattern. I had no idea how many choices were out there.
My only concern now is assembly, once I get them back. You have any experience with the comfort tech rubber chevrons in the Benelli stocks? I have four bags. I separated the sbe and the vinci, left and right. Hope they pop in as easy as they came out?
Can't wait tho, think I'm more excited then they are. After seeing all the patterns. And if it all works out well. I think it will replace my itch for ink (tattoos). I'll be throwing all my extra money at dipping guns. I definitely want to do a "R" rated design (contains nudity) on the AR. Lol. Thanks again for the info.
Good luck with the project.
Its just me shooting for right now. Just finishing up league at Wern! I usually shoot every Thursday. Once in a while I'll hit McMiller on the weekends. I am more than game to meet up sometime soon and shoot a round. Let me know!
Really appreciate it Grizz.
I was hoping to get it done before the fall leagues. But I assume like everyone else, he is just swamped. I wanted to see the options and how it looked before I do another gun. But ill skip that and give him my son's gun also right away if he is available?
And funny, I appreciate the info.. before work this morn I was looking at the other place on the web. Unfortunately not many do it in the area.
On a side note. We need to hook up and shoot a coarse some day before the hunting season starts. Do your kids and wife shoot? I think I'm getting the boot off the couples team, my wife wants our son as a partner instead. Lol.
And my daughter is Wheeling her gun around like a pro. She is swing shooting the pattern board already and doing good. Bout ready for some clays. Gun is working great.
I'll be talking to him today, I'll see what's going on.
I haven't tried it myself... The web makes it look so easy but I have witnessed that to do it right, it is more complicated. I have used one other for coatings and dipping but I will not post their name here. Very bad experience. I'll pm you.
Grizz, wondering if you have a second connection for hydro dipping? I tried contacting black smoke a couple times and left a message, no response? Maybe to busy? I noticed, poking around on the Internet, some companies are 4 to 6 weeks out.
Ever try it yourself?
