    I found what was told to be a NIB Benelli SBE in shadow grass, was not aware they made any in the shadow grass pattern. Yall think this is a dipped gun or could it be factory camo? Thanks

    If I were a a betting man, I'd bet the farm that it was dipped. Like Pine, I've never heard of a factory shadow grass pattern on a factory Benelli.

    This guy claims to have four of them that are NIB with the shadow grass camo, guess before I send the money I will try to get ahold of Benelli and see what they have to say. Thanks for the replies.

    I will post up information about the guns if it works out, seems like a great deal but don't want to mislead anyone.

    Even if they are dipped by an aftermarket gunsmith it is probably a good deal if done by a reputable person. Here is a pic.

    Yep it would have to be an aftermarket job as Benelli uses realt Tree products for their factory camo. Shadow Grass is a Mossy Oak product but of course you know that.... ;)

    I had to have mine dipped to get MOSG myself....

    Finally got to pick the gun up today as I have been locked in at work for the past 4 days. It has a factory MOSG finish and 24" barrel, the gun was bought from Tanner's Sport Center in PA and they were selling for 965.
