  1. After working on more than 600 Benelli's in the past 10 years here is how I would approach it, if you knew the age of the gun, serial number, and how much it has been shot, overall condition, recoil spring condition, the SBE II could be a attractive purchase. Do not overlook the Franchi Affinity line however, great gun very good value. A black 3" could be purchased new for 700.00. Let me know if I can help you in any way. Mark
  2. Kyle, this version of the SBE III can be ordered online through Cabela's. Several store have them in stock. The gun is not very popular, the hunting autoloading segement has moved away from wood stock guns, for several reason. When selecting the wood version you will move away from the Comfort Tech 3 / Combtech stock. This offering features Progressive Comfort recoil reduction found on the Ethos and the 828U series Over And Under.
  3. Please send me a PM, I will be glad to help, no worries your gun will function like new. Mark
  4. I would temper my expectations with this addition, you MAY create cycling issues. I would attempt to control your through amo selection, first.
  5. These were very nice guns, I am going to PM you.
  6. What the video does not show is the Benelli Safety Plunger that sets directly under the spring. Ensure this is in place before reinstalling the spring.
  7. Yes, I do this quite frequently, you could PM me for details or email, [email protected]
  8. Yes, it is a little detailed and delicate.
  9. Please send me a PM, I can surely help you with cycling your Benelli - enertia system shotgun. Please look through my previous posts. Many cause and effect observations are noted.
  10. Hello Butch -M, thank you for the insights about about slugs, I will be sure to pass this along to my customer. As far as Wolff Springs. The 25% decrease spring was developed for shooting light field load 7/8 or 1 oz in warm weather. Benelli owners wanted a bit more flexibility in the cycling of their guns under different conditions with lighter ammunition. the 25% increase spring is used for heavier loads, cold weather which has a direct effect on the inertia system and cycling. Your 20 gauge M2 Slug Gun and the one I just repaired was sent with a 20 gauge, longer, softer spring. Could you PM me or email me about your three other questions. Thanks
  11. Hello, StrangerDanger asked some great question, light strikes can be caused by several issues. Hammer Spring, Recoil spring, cleaning, shells, etc. If you would like to PM me or email me at [email protected], I would be glad to help. Please my other posts, I have worked on several hundred Benelli's over many years.
  12. Hello Butch M, I completed the testing on a customers M2 Slug Gun today CAT. 13081 Testing was done with Remington Accutip 260 Grain Sabot Slugs 2 3/4" 1850 velocity. The gun performed flawlessly, 28 degree temps, this was done with a Wolff 25% increase recoil spring. I did buff out minor burring on the inside rail, charging handle, side. Several observations were made. The 20 gauge spring OEM is very soft, different part number that the OEM 12 gauge spring. The chamber is bored very tight, I will be taking measurement of the M2 Slug Gun bore vs a field M2 20 gauge with a precision micrometer. Knowing this I made certain every shell fell into the chamber freely, this was with the barrel off the gun pointing down. Any shell that was resistant was polished. Some Benelli "Cycling" issues can be attributed to this, such as when shooting BB's when the packing of the shot is not smooth inside of the shell case. Proper normal shouldering of the gun was precise, all optics removed from gun. If I can assist you in any way please feel free to contact me.
  13. Hello, over time the carrier latch will wear slightly, this will eventually cause the release of multiple shells from the magazine. Here is a previous post i posted to replace the carrier latch. The carrier latch can be purchased from Brownells or Midwest Gun Parts, be sure to order the correct one. I just replace 2 for customers in the past few weeks. Please feel free to reach out to me if you need more guidance. [email protected] That's great. Of course I can help you with your Carrier Latch. I'm sure the part you ordered from Brownell is the exact part number that your M2 came with. This part is a redesign since the M1. You mentioned you ordered a follower as well. The part was changed on the M2, i'm not so sure for the better. If you look at the Sure Cycle MAGAZINE kit, they have a Magazine Upgrade System for most Benelli 12 gauge shotguns. Includes a stainless steel magazine spring, red anodized aluminum follower and 3-shot plug. This kit provide a Stainless Spring a Anodized follower and a anodized plug. The anodized parts are very precise and are very well made. I personally have these in my hunting guns primarily because I was going to purchase a new spring anyway and I really like the anodized plug. When replacing the carrier latch you will need a fine drift punch to drive the carrier latch pin from the bottom through the top. When installing the new Latch and pin if you purchase one you will need to start the latch pin from the bottom driving the pin into position. This may require some a helper to hold the latch into position. Driving the pin to far into the receiver which will interfere with the bolt assembly movement. Please let me know if you need some additional guidance. [email protected]
  14. Hello Butch-M, glad to hear your Benelli functioned yesterday with the 3" shells. I am near completion with the 20 Gauge slug M2. A few observations I noticed was the OEM 20 Gauge spring, which is a different part number and is longer than the OEM 12 Gauge spring, seems pretty soft. This is in comparison to current 20 gauge Benelli that are brand new, different models. I will be testing three spring rates in the gun described with 2 3/4" Remington Premier Accu tip Slugs. I would be more than happy to share with you these results after testing early next week. Your owners manual states that 190 kilogram meter ( = 1374.27 foot pounds) is the minimum kinetic energy that a 20 gauge cartridge must generate to fully cycle the action of your inertial system (measured by manometric barrel at 1 meter from the muzzle). To capture the kinetic energy to cycle your gun the gun needs to be shouldered in a normal fashion, if you held your gun in your hands alone and fired the gun kinetic energy forces the entire receiver to the rear and your firearm may or may not cycle or close the breach bolt, likewise if you held the firearm against a brick wall, you may have similar results. The M4 uses ARGO gas system to operate and control inertia, it can be shot from many different positions, which the gun developed, end user. Please drop me a PM or a email, I would be glad to help.
