  1. You don't see these barrels for sale much so I thought I would share. http://cgi.ebay.com/Benelli-Factory-Crio-Barrel-with-5-Crio-Chokes_W0QQitemZ7231825053QQcategoryZ73955QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
  2. Sorry to hear about the troubles guys. Sounds like these were new guns, and there are two critical factors for benelli owners on a new gun. *First, the gun is assembled with assembly lubricants and not operating lubricants. The assembly lubricant is designed to prevent corosion and to allow the gun to sit on the shelf ( of course we all know benelli's dont sit on the shelf long ) ) You need to strip the gun and clean the assembly lubricant from all opertional componants. One of the biggest culprits is the recoil tube assembly in the stock. A new gun is going to have a fairly
  3. Well, yeah.... There are several professional grade chokes available for the Super Sport in Skeet, Skeet2 as well as every other standard constriction. If you are professional shooter and only spending $1500 on a gun you would know straight up that you are going to be buying professional grade AM chokes, to even suggest otherwise is well.. not the smartest assumption... I own the Super Sport and have no problem using the factory chokes including full without problem; but I know the patterns my gun produces with the various chokes and shot sizes to use it with fair precision. I
  4. All items sold. Thanks! -cr [ 02-18-2006, 07:03 PM: Message edited by: Coloradoryan ]
  5. Memphis, either gun is an excellent choice. If it were me purchasing one of these two offerings for an elderly guy for waterfowl I would choose the M2 with comfortech. The comfortech stock does offer slightly less recoil than wood stocked versions with magnum loads and of course stands up better than wood in waterfowl conditions. The simplicity in cleaning, and maintaining the Benelli is far easier as well.
  6. Providing you are measuring correctly .627 is overbored. Standard spec is .615 for a 20 gauge, although there are some manufacturing tolerances that will vary slightly ( around 2 % ). -cr

    PBro21, Mudhen is giving you solid advice. If you are hitting high you are likely seeing too much rib, put the next drop shim in and take a look down the rib, it should be flat so that you dont see much of the top of the rib but the bead still perfectly. Its not hard, and doesn't require a gunsmith ( thats why benelli includes them). 15 minutes at the range with your shim kit and you will be ready to rock A larger front site will make the gun shoot a bit lower because they are taller. They are very easy to install as they just screw in. Unscrew the old one with some non maring plier
  8. One of two things probably going on. 1. As Mudhen suggested, broken firing pin. 2. Quite common, the bolt head was not rotated and locked in the barrel. The firing pin will not reach the round and you get the infamous benelli "click", the hammer strikes the bolt carrier but not the firing pin. ( its a safety thing). you can often see a dent start to form on the hammer if this happens frequently) This nailed me several times on my first benelli hunting trip. I experianced this from manually closing the bolt by hand instead of using the button to close the action and a couple of b
  9. Does the barrel have a stepped rib by chance?
  10. Hey Miami, first let me say BIG drag, on your bolt carrier.... Is a NON low recoil round barrel available for your m4? Reason I ask is because a "low recoil round" barrel is typically designed for just that and only that, low recoil Police, and Military rounds ( they have their own designation) for close quarter combat, and training. In fact many agencies are only authorized to use low recoil ammo, in buck or slug. I am assuming that the standard barrel is a two port which the ARGO system can regulate between standard, and magnum rounds effectively, but it is quite possible th
  11. Your buying him the M4? ( military purpose shotgun) Can I call you dad too?? The M4 is a spectacular shotgun ( Thats why the US Marines choose it ). You are not going to have any 50 round /gun falling apart problems. As to your question about birds and clays ? Its not really designed for that. I think standard configuration is an 18.5 inch barrel with ghost ring sights. The m1 or m2 is a good choice for hunting, that can also play the role of combat gun with some inexpensive furniture changes, and a mag extension.
  12. White Feather, for less than $50 you can send in your barrel and chokes and have them cryogenically treated by companies such as Cryopro or many other companies. Turn around time is usually about a week and is safe to bluing, teflon finishes, etc.. Here is the 50 cent definition of what the process does. The Cryo process turns soft carbon ( austinite ) into a smaller, stronger carbon molecule ( martensite ). The process makes the surface less porous, which increases durability, makes it easier to clean, etc... It reduces risdual stress from the manufacturing process and also
  13. The Super Sport is a fine gun but it is definately more of a clays gun then a hunting gun. The Cordoba is simply a Super Sport that went to the barbeque finishing room instead of the plating and polishing room. (also, the carbon fiber stock on the supersport is not carbon fiber, its the same as the rest with a paint job to simulate a carbon fiber weave.) The M2 was designed to hunt, and it sounds like thats what your after. It would be my choice in your shoes. If you want a flashy gun like the Supersport, but in more of a hunting setup the newer Legacy is a good choice and a
  14. Was it a reload ? The shearing of the Saddle screw could have been from a slightly loose saddle mount screw, a little bit of freeplay makes the screw take the full load of the mass of the carrier and the shotgun recoil force. ( quite a bit of force opposing each other there). It is unlikely but possible that the extra mass on the side of the gun being loose caused a snapping effect on the gun ( sort of like a second recoil ) and caused the barrel lug seperation. ( especially if the solder joint wasn't that strong to begin with ) (When you were firing those #00 buck rounds you m
  15. I think e gun parts sells them for about $25, and Brownells is about $35. Brownells can be kind of expensive if you dont get the dealer discount... Benelli might sell you one cheaper, or possibly even give you one...
