Anyone shot a Benalli Vinci?

Neat idea about it coming apart to go in a case but I wonder if the accuracy is affected?

Why would it affect accuracy? It's a shotgun.

Give me a dollar.

Not sure what is so revolutionary about it. And I agree with the above post that it is ugly as most benelli's are.

Accuracy is the same as any other pump or semi-auto shotgun where the barrel is able to removed from the receiver.

Im a guns newb so I didnt know if the movement of the joint were the barrel came apart would have any effect on accuracy. I realize that its a shotgun and when shooting buck shot it really wouldnt make that much of a difference. It seems like after you have disassembled the barrel a couple hundred times that it would start to have more slop in the locking mechanism.

Nah, and that doesn't really matter. If you get too much headspace with a shotgun, it just won't detonate the primer, and you'll know when you have that much. Almost every barrel, with the exception of revolvers, has the chamber in it, so headspace and barrel lug contact are the only other things that could change and affect accuracy. With a shotgun, it never gets enough pressure built up for those variations to matter. The pellets more or less bounce down the barrel anyway. Beyond that, most sight packages, short of ghostring setups, are going to have the rear sight on the barrel as well as the front sight on a shotgun. Even if the barrel's turned out of place, it won't matter as long as your sight picture is good.
