    I replace most with OEM Benelli springs, depends on the application. The Wolff OEM and 25% increase are great springs as well. Midwest Gun Parts has great service, fast. good prices, however they are currently out of stock on the hammer spring. With that I would go OEM Wolff and purchase them directly from Wolff Spring Co.

    Choke tubes

    Most Montefeltro's come with three choke tubes. Some synthetic black guns came with one as part of a "buy down" sales gun.
  3. Great topic and good question. If you look at the part number for the M2 recoil spring it is different from the SBE series guns. This spring is much longer and softer that the OEM SBE series springs. Check out Wolff Springs, there is no change in springs other than OEM Power, 25% Increase, 25% decrease. I personally replace all customers M2 spring with OEM Wolff. From your note the factory tried to change your spring rate, the OEM M2 spring. It sounds as though they went to far and your rotating bolt is now not locking into battery. I believe if you ordered a wolff OEM power spring, checked your shells for tolerance, (see recent Kent Shell post), your gun will cycle perfectly. Keep your recoil spring tube clean, keep your spring fresh, field strip your bolt, check shells tolerance, shoulder gun properly, every Benelli will cycle shells 100% like new. I have worked on more than 800 Benelli's, every one leaves cycling shells like new.
  4. Hi Paul, Here is a test for your shells, remove the barrel from your gun, point the muzzle down, every shells should fall into the chamber without obstruction, Benelli bores there guns fairly tight, to capture inertia, if your shells do not fall into the chamber freely, stop using them or hit them with a belt sander. This issue is very prevalent with BB's, all manufacturers, the tolerance is just not tight enough, yet you will not hear a peep about this topic from anyone. I have very successfully repaired over 800, this is a topic I demonstrate to all of my customers.

    Shooting 3” 2s and 3s. Recoil tube/spring is clean. Almost seems like hammer doesn’t have enough power to hit firing pin? Maybe I’ll replace pin and spring and go from there. Great, replace your hammer spring, you can go with OEM Benelli, or Wolff has two spring rates available as well. If you have removed your recoil so spring I would just replace this as well, your SBE 2 is certainly old enough, I recommend every 5-8 years. This is a inexpensive part as well, you will be surprised how this well freshen up the cycling effectiveness on your gun. Let me know if I can help.

    Three issues may need to be addressed, without see the gun these could be focus issues: Firing Pin Spring, tolerance, are you releasing the firing pin when the gun is stored. Recoil spring, cleanup or spring, is the bolt truly rotating into battery? Shells , are you shooting BB's, if so are all of your shells falling freely into the chamber when the barrel is removed from the gun, choke pointing down? If not you are altering the dynamic energy the rotating bolt, cycling. Please let me know if I can can further assist. PM Me if so desired.
  7. My advise, remove the magazine tube extension, here is why. At some point you will damage your carrier latch. The carrier latch hold and shells into the magazine tube. Your carrier latch is not designed to withstand the pressure of the additional loading and cycling of shells with this extension. I replace several carrier latches in Benelli every year. The majority of these are from guns with magazine tube extensions. If you do install the magazine tube extension, I would use it as little as possible at full capacity. The SBEIII and the ethos use the new style two piece carrier latches.
  8. There are several nice videos out there about this topic, make sure you have the correct tools and be carefully when reinstalling the Safety plunger, spring and pin. You can damage these pars very easily.
  9. Please PM me, I replace carrier latches and associates parts quite frequently. However lets get some clarity around the parts your are actually describing. Mark
  10. Bruce H Jackson, if you PM me I will assist you. Do not worry, you will be able to install your Trigger group without sending it to Benelli. Mark
  11. These appear to be Super Black Eagle 2 Serial numbers. Most if not all SBE III have the date stamp, year, as the last two digits in the serial number series.
  12. Is the choke marked in any way? This appears to be the original Mobil Choke system which is fine, however who is the Manufacture of the choke and what is the restriction? You could easily just purchase a 710 restriction or improved or modified Benelli Mobil choke for this as well. I very much like the 710 Franchi extended choke which is a Mobile Choke system as well. These are made by TruLock.
  13. EdWalton, This sounds like a simple carrier latch adjustment although it is difficult playing internet Benelli repair on every occasion. Most things Benelli are very simple with knowledge of cause and effect and proper tools.
  14. wtrfwl801, please send me a PM, I will assist you on making your SBE 2, 100% reliable. I have worked on more than 750 Benelli's, every one has performed flawlessly upon completion. You asking EdWalton about his magazine tube. It sound like you are having issues with yours. If so your carrier latch is bent. Do you have a extended magazine tube added to the gun? I have seen brand new Benelli's and Franchi's with carrier latches slightly out of tolerance. You did not mention what the factory did with your repairs. I have seen on multiple occasions 20 gauge spring, recoil tube, installed in 12 gauge guns. Sure like to help. Mark
  15. Hello, I May have someone who would be interested in trading with you. Could you PM me so we can exchange Emails etc.. Where are you located?
  16. These were great guns, one of my favorites. Could you PM me with the name of the retailer who may have these. Thanks Mark
  17. Great gun, perfect balance point, if you ever remove the trigger group, be very cautious to follow the instructions exactly.
  18. If you would like to PM me, I could surely assist. There is a pretty good schematic on Midwest gun parts which will assist in setting the direction of the ejector plate.
  19. On the SBE 3 there are three Recoil pads available, they are: 80256 Short 80257 Medium 80258 Long
  20. Question #1. Magazine extension: Personally I would not install a magazine tube extension on the M2. If you do I would only use it as little as possible. The result of the magazine tube extension will be a bent carrier latch. I replace several carrier latches per year, as well as removing them from every Benelli I service. The majority of the bent carrier latches come from magazine tube extensions. You are placing a tremendous amount of pressure on the carrier latch when compressing the magazine spring with more than the factory magazine capacity.
  21. I have worked on several m2 20 Gauge. They perform very well with Remington Accutip 3" or 2 3/4".
  22. The Ejector Plate is pressed into the receiver on a SBE 2, truckcop's description is very good. You did not mention if you have ever replaced, the recoil spring. I have worked on well over 750 Benelli shotguns, never seen a issue on a SBE 2 Ejector. I have seen the Ejector plate on other models held in with the Ejector Plate Rivet. These are sometimes improperly pressed into the barrel. I have seem on more than 1 occasion 20 gauge springs installed in 12 gauge shotguns. Spring life is inconsistent, I have replaced spring on M1's after 1 year and Super Black Eagle 1's H&K after 28 years. Please PM me if you would like any assistance.
  23. Personally, I do not advise cutting magazine tube springs nor adding magazine tube extensions. This leads to bending of the carrier latch. Carrier Latches will wear however most carrier latches I have replaced we from guns with magazine tube extensions. You are putting a great amount of force on the carrier latch when putting in 6 or 7 shells and having it compressed under load.
