  1. Steve, I have not seen a stiff safety on a 828, new gun for a very lomg time. Benelli has a 10 year warranty on all firearms, they will refit 828U safety art no charge. I do have intructions on how to complete this as well. Most of your comments are way over the top and show the lack of understanding on your part. Perhaps the one of the benefits of the forum is to educate. Functionality of the safety as well as the the Top Lever is quite often misunderstood on the 828. Both were designed to slide with the design lines of the gun. Quite often shooters are applying downward pressure on both the safety and the top lever. When this occurs functionality of both components becomes resistant.
  2. How old is the M2? Just a guess: this will not be covered under warranty. Call Benelli customer service and ask.
  3. The Benelli Vinci uses Crion Choke tube pattern. Midwest Gun Works would be one of many sources. All Benelli small parts as well as most Beretta small parts come from Midewst Gun Works.
  4. Let us know if you may need instructions on how to replave your extractor.
  5. This is why you are pointing the gun higher than you think you are. When looking down your rib it needs to be flat, your eyeline is currently too high and you are pointing your gun higher than you intend to point it. Going back to the original post: I am shooting my Benelli High and left, I don't understand why. You are pointing your gun to the left because your eyeline is too far to the right of the rib if you are right handed. You are then "correcting" this by moving your barrel to the left. Please let me know if you need assistance in understaning the QuardraFit system..
  6. Your gun is shooting where you are pointing it, this is why gun fitting is critical. You are currently pointing your gun higher than you think and pointing the barrel to the left. This is done because your gun currently does not fit you correctly. It is also important to understand what a 60/40 patter is, the Benelli Patterning spec and the sight picture for oriention. I am going to include all of these, please let me know if you may need help understanding the QuadrFit system. Benelli Lab - Itally
  7. The correct qustion should be: I am shooting my Benelli High and left, I don't understand why. This would be a good start to understanding gun fitting and patterning.

    You may want to continue to use your Mossberg until small parts from Benelli improve, post covid. The M2 was redesigned this past year, some models within the core have not been rounded out to include all of the variety that was included in the past generation M2.
  9. Here is a photo from the Benelli Labatory in Italy. The Benelli Spec as noted counted from the middle of the circle directly above the point of aim. I am attaching another image for refernce. Your Ultralight seems to setup very nicely. The new M2 is very flat right out of the box. I have a 12 gauge as well, photo.
  10. Functionality of the safety as well as the the Top Lever is quite often misunderstood on the 828. Both were designed to slide with the design lines of the gun. Quite often shooters are applying downward pressure on both the safety and the top lever. When this occurs functionality of both components becomes resistant. My experience with the 828u which is robust has pointed to some issues with the Nickel versions, very few if any with the Anodized Versions as well as the PS Upland version's. I have not seen many stiff safeties in the past two years. If I handed some hunters my 828U Upland or 828U Sport very few could break the gun open with the top lever. Once shown the technique funtionality becomes very natural.
  11. Have you tried removing the stock. This gains clearance on "some" models.
  12. Great News! I noticed you are running the A Drop Shim & the A Drop shim plate in your Ultra Light. Is there a reason you have so very little drop? I can not recall any of the 900 + Quadra Fit fittings that I have done ended up in the A Drop Shim setup. Generally speaking when you eyeline is to high when looking down the rib you will see you mid bead under the front bead. These are the folks who are actually pointing the gun higher than they believe. Effect "My Benelli Is Shooting high". The correct language should be " I am shooting my Benelli high and I don't understand why".
  13. If you are going to create more drop in the gun stock you will use the C Drop Shim followed by the DX Cast shim, letters away from the reciever. You will then use the CDX Drop Shim plate in the buttstock, letters away from the reciever/top of the the drop shim plate. There is really no difference in the new M2 vs any other Quadra Fit Benelli with the excetion of the shape of the Drop & Cast shim.
  14. Hello: Here is a nice nice image for basic fitting and patterning: I can assist you with your shim questions later this evening.
  15. Benelli Pattern Spec: Up to 2” right of left Up to 5” above POA Up to 2” below POA AT 21 Yards!
