  1. Primary difference would be that the M2 receiver is one-piece, all aluminum while the SBE has a two-piece receiver with a steel upper that's part of the barrel assembly and an aluminum lower portion. SBE would therefore be heavier than the M2. Inertia firing system is pretty much the same in each. The SBE has always been considered a heavier-duty type gun able to take more use with heavier loads vs the M's. I've got both (12 ga.) and functionally there's not much difference. The lighter M2 has a bit more felt recoil than the heavier SBE but in actual use in the field I never notice it.
  2. Contact Benelli customer service. They may be able to provide (sell) the fine-thread part. Or, contact Midwest. They may have the correct part. And for future reference, a pipe wrench isn't a proper gunsmithing tool. Just sayin'. 😁
  3. M2 barrel will fit the M1. There will be some necessary modifications to the M1 forearm for it to fit. Finding a barrel will be your main impediment. They'll occasionally show up on ebay or gunbroker. Shoot clays with the barrel you have. I shoot skeet, sporting clays, and pheasants with 19 and 21 inch barrels.
  4. If you can find one, the OEM extensions are preferable. Next on my list would be Nordic Components extension. If you're flush with cash, go whole-hog and go with a monotube replacement (full length tube, not an extension) by Roth Performance, formerly X-Rail by RCI.
  5. If it's like several others here, there's not much you can do to remedy the sticky stock. There seems to be a period in which the mixing/curing process of the polymer material was sub-optimal. My remedy was to call Benelli and describe the problem. They sent me a new stock. Did you buy it recently as a new gun or was it used? I would think by now newer guns would have had the problem fixed.
  6. I shoot a RM05/9moa dot on one of my 3-gun M1's. I've got RM04/7moa RMR's on other guns. To my eye it's impossible to tell the difference in size between the two. There are a couple of issues with the dual illuminated models. Each issue has to do with ambient lighting. First, when shooting in direct, unobstructed mid-day sunlight, the dot flares a great deal. Second, when shooting from a covered/shady or darkened position out into a bright, sunlit area, the dot is almost invisible against something like a bright white painted steel target. I've taken care of the first problem with a bla
  7. As I noted above, call Benelli. In my case they sent me a new stock.
  8. Can't think of a reason why it would be doing that. It should work. Sounds silly, but try wiggling the muzzle end of the barrel back and forth while pulling back on it. Another: take the trigger housing and bolt assembly out and try to install the barrel. When doing that, look up inside the receiver to see if you can find the barrel extension coming in contact with something. I can't really think of what since there's not really anything in there to interfere with it. That's all I've got.
  9. I don't have the cajones to shoot 3 1/2 in buckshot so no, I haven't seen that. Having said that, the question is: What do you mean by "trouble recycling"? Is it not ejecting? Not loading after ejection? Following round not being released from magazine? Do they cycle properly with other brands or different loads? If both guns are having trouble with that particular brand/load but work properly with others, that's a clue. Quit using that brand/load. I've got one gun that refuses to work with Rio shotgun shells. It works with everything else I run through it. I don't use Rio any mo
  10. You tell us; what's the problem? What is it doing wrong? It feeds and extracts. What is it not doing that it should be doing?
  11. I didn't have it on the M4 long enough to cause any damage. Installed it, tried it out, took it off. At the time, didn't notice any damage to the M4 rail. Since then I took the factory rail off and installed a Sidearmor sidesaddle/rail mount.
  12. I only used the lowest Trijicon mount when I put mine on the M4. Too high for me. I shoot a lot of skeet and sporting clays so I prefer getting down low when shooting a shotgun, regardless of the type. I've installed low rails on a couple of M1's and the Trijicon low mount is still a bit too high. When Scalarworks came out with their first generation RMR mount that included a rail section, I got one of those and surgically removed the rail section and only installed the RMR portion. Very low, just right for my tastes. I shoot with standard field-type stocks on all my shotguns. No pistol
  13. After shooting thousands of rounds through my M1/M2's with RMR's mounted for 3-gun, shotgun-only competitions, and training (both giving and receiving), I can provide the following advise based on experience. Quick release of modern optics is overrated. Not once, in all this time of at least 12-15 years (including the early RMR's that had issues when mounted on handgun slides) I have never had a RMR go down on a shotgun necessitating its quick removal. I know that's only an example of maybe 5 out of all the mounted RMR's out there but it's still my experience. Re: cluttered co-witness
  14. You're not going to get much lower than the factory QR low-mount. It's sort-of QR. Easier than the standard mount. https://www.trijicon.com/products/details/ac32076 Their standard low-mount (non-QR) is a bit lower. https://www.trijicon.com/products/details/rm33 You're really limiting yourself by discounting the Scalarworks. But hey, that's just me sayin' that. I'm just some guy in the innerwebz.
  15. Dang, that's a clean gun. Hard to say until you figure out what's actually happening. Unless something's put together way wrong, I don't see how it would be possible to have the magazine dump rounds completely out of the gun. Onto the carrier? Yes. Out of the gun? Hmmm. After shooting at a bird on this year's trip to SD, I thought I had reloaded but, in all the excitement, I hadn't. Next bird I got off one shot, then nuthin'. Oops, forgot to top it off. Make sure the release moves freely and isn't binding. Get some dummy rounds and manually take it through a bunch of firing cycles w
  16. That could be what's clanking around in the magazine tube. Otherwise, I got nuthin'. 😀
  17. Does it have a limiter plug installed? How many shells can you put in the magazine?
  18. Yeah, I know. Didn't mean to imply you did. Just making a general "necropost" observation. And here I am perpetuating it. Oh well. On the other hand, if I had to, I'd go for one of these KaliCompliant rifles. Luckily, I'm not in Kali, try as they'd like to make us all subject to their nonsense and worse.
  19. Even though this thread began over 8 years ago, and the OP hasn't posted anything else in that time, I'll respond to that: Yes, it can be uglier. I'll take a standard stocked MR1 over one of these every day of the week. But hey, that's just me.
  20. Yes, this is normal although it shouldn't be an issue with the bolt fully closed. When the locking head is fully in battery, its tail comes in contact with the inertia spring. When the bolt is open, the locking head rotates and moves forward in the bolt creating the ability of the spring to move back and forth. If you take the bolt out of the gun, push the locking head back as if the gun is in battery. Shake it back and forth and I doubt you'll hear the spring moving about much. Release the locking head to its out-of-battery position, hold the locking head so it doesn't rattle, and do th
  21. Funny how like-minded folks seem to have the same issues. Prior to my M2 stock issue, I had the Limbsaver issue. I purchased three pads for my Rem 870 wood stocks. All three started to go fairly quickly, i.e., sticking to the carpet in the safe (is there an echo in here? 😂) I didn't shoot those guns much so it wasn't really a concern for a few years. I ended up buying new ones not realizing it was Limbsaver's issue and not storage problems on my part. A while after that I learned of their batch-mix issue leading to failure-to-cure-properly. I just let it go as a learning experience. An
  22. For the uses you specify (or anything else, for that matter), zero difference between the two in terms of performance. Comes down to personal preference on how they feel, balance, swing, etc.
  23. Another possibility is to go to Ace Hardware or similar establishment and find an appropriately sized E-clip/c-clip/circlip. https://www.homedepot.com/b/Hardware-Fasteners-Pins-Rings-Clips/Pin-Ring-Clip/E-Clip/N-5yc1vZc2d3Z1z0u5fsZ1z0ztde?storeSelection=
  24. Based on the OP's description, the cap retaining pin isn't the culprit. The swivel stud on the magazine cap is held in place by a spring clip. Call Benelli and they may send you one. I don't see them listed in parts catalogs. If they don't have one to send you may have to go with an aftermarket swivel stud. If you're EXTREMELY lucky, yours may have fallen back into the magazine tube and is stuck in there. Remove your magazine spring and follower and the clip may fall out. Looks like these:
