  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. These were great guns, one of my favorites. Could you PM me with the name of the retailer who may have these. Thanks Mark
  6. Great gun, perfect balance point, if you ever remove the trigger group, be very cautious to follow the instructions exactly.
  7. 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.
  8. On the SBE 3 there are three Recoil pads available, they are: 80256 Short 80257 Medium 80258 Long
  9. 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.
  10. I have worked on several m2 20 Gauge. They perform very well with Remington Accutip 3" or 2 3/4".
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. This sounds to be a Carrier Latch which is our of adjustment. I would not cut the magazine spring tube. This will come back to surface again later in the guns life cycle. I replace several carrier latches per year, these are mostly from gun that have had extended magazine spring tube added. However I have seen a least one gun, brand new with the carrier latch out of adjustment. Please send me a PM, glad to help. Mark

    New M2

    Please PM me, I have extensive experience with this setup. Is it a 20 Gauge? Mark
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. Please send me a PM, I will be glad to help, no worries your gun will function like new. Mark
  18. I would temper my expectations with this addition, you MAY create cycling issues. I would attempt to control your through amo selection, first.
  19. These were very nice guns, I am going to PM you.
  20. 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.
  21. Yes, I do this quite frequently, you could PM me for details or email, [email protected]
  22. Yes, it is a little detailed and delicate.
  23. 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.
