  1. I have had a few problems early on for every 100 rounds or so. If I used PMC ammo it was really bad (1 round out of every 4 - and found them to have a slightly over sized ring neck on the case). After a bit of investgating with variuos types of ammo, I found the tang on the magazine to be leaving gouges on the cases so I bent the tang out a bit with my multi-tool. Has worked great ever since. These days if I have a problem cycling rounds it has usually been a failure to eject and I'm sure I did not have the butt of the rifle pressed into my shoulder good enough causing the rifle to move excessively during firing (I have the bruise from my 300 WM to prove it). Anyone firing a Baretta pistol with a limp wrist will attest to a failure to cycle also. Good Luck, Glenn
  2. Bullwinkle!!! I'd say your R1 more than did the job! -Glenn
  3. Tucker, The post with the borescope comparison - Darn that was good! Hit the point home. Is your middle name "Resourceful" or what? Always a pleasure- Thanks, Glenn
  4. OK, I'm sure if I just call customer service they'll tell me, But... I want a Super Nova Comfortech with a slug barrel. Do they come like that standard or not? The Benelli website is not all that clear about it. Some spots it says "optional slug barrel" and other spots show it as a "configuration". I went to Cabella's and I've gotten conflicting info. Two guys behind the counter say "No!", and three guys say "you can special order it..." Any one have a Super Nova Comfortech (non-camo) with the slug barrel??? Any info would be helpful. Thanks, Glenn

    Buy a Benelli Pump shot gun! When asked, criminals will tell you flatly: There is no more heart stopping, frightening sound than that of shot gun being pumped! Criminals will RUN out of your house. A Fact! You can argue ballistics, recoil, or the merrits of this or that, but the psychological effect of that Sound is undeniable. My 2 cents- Glenn
  6. I like camo form tape. It's neat stuff - doesn't wear off and protects my pretty walnut finish. Oh, it also looks way cool. Has some limitations though - if it gets drenched it may hold water against the firearm. (Yikes!) That is my R1 in my hands. Ran out of camo form on the scope -- too bad cause it was realtree version which you can not get any more. If I want to re-do it I'll have to settle for Mossy oak, a military pattern, or one that makes the R1 look and shoot exactly like a BAR under water with +P ammo. Here's a link to the stuff: http://www.buysourceone.com/new/camo_wrap/camo_wrap.shtml -Glenn [ 10-11-2006, 01:21 PM: Message edited by: GlennRoss ]
  7. drcam, Try adjusting the wings of the magazine. My R1 did the same thing every once in a while. I looked at the rounds and found scrapes on the cases. I was able to match the scrapes to the magazine wings - bent them out a bit and Viola! no more mis-feeds. Now, it still may relate to the energy bled off by the gas port system that has something to do with failure to strip a round. Keep in mind it is an entire system (the Argo gas system) - not just an isolated portion of it. Any part of that system that pulls the cycle out of operating parameters may cause a malfunction in another part, e.g. not enough (or too much) energy bled off from a given round and a "tight" magazine might lead to a failure to strip/feed. Good luck, Glenn
  8. Tucker, Got a Harris BIPOD on my Rock River Arms M4 .223 copy and I love it -- a bipod is a must have at the range, Harris or whatever else. Best part is that it is it is detachable, adjusts to un-even surfaces, and helps holds your aim dead-on. Plinkity - Plink, Plink, Plink! BTW - I Don't envy the deer on your sights! Please post photo's when you knock'em dead! And yeah, the new stock is MUCH better. Good Hunting, Glenn P.S. The R1 goes into the gunsmith for tirgger work on Monday.
  9. dsi123, Numrich's Gun Parts has a 10 Round 308 listed @ $75.15 (with photo) below: http://www.e-gunparts.com/DisplayAd.asp?chrProductSKU=957880&chrSuperSKU=&MC= As for .300WM I'm not sure it's made - 30-06 & 308 are all I've ever seen. You can call them (845) 679-4867 and ask if they can special order it. If anyone can get it they can. Good Luck, Glenn
  10. Jd1234 -- one acronym: CLP!!!
  11. BTW, I shot a 7/8" group today @ 100 yards (8/26/06) with "cheap" Remington 150 grain soft point 300WM ammo. Was sportin' my new Zeiss 3-9 40mm Scope. And -- Yup, I blew out the scrawny Weaver rings the guy at Cabela's assured me would hold up to the recoil. LOL, 20 rounds into its inagural bench session it slid the scope over 3/4" back into the rings til it hit the adjustment knob taper. After putting 3 rounds thru the exact same hole at 25 yards and 3 rounds in a 7/8" grouping -- the next 3 rounds went all over the target. Scratching my head I recalled Rule #1: Check your scope mounts. Some of you might recall that after 400+ rounds I bent the "$%^~" out of my 30mm QRW Leupold rings and had them warrantied. I've since gone to the super beefy "tactical" Leupold rings on my 1.5-5 20mm Leupold scope with no problems. This new scope is a 1" tube and I stupidly bought skinny rings. I have a Rock River Arms .223 M-4 copy that I bought it for. I figured using the 3-9 Zeiss for day at the range on my 300WM Benelli R-1 would be ok. NOT! Honestly, I really Love my R-1!!! It kick's the crap out of everything including the scope rigs. BTW, it has a muzzle break. LOL. -Glenn

    Got Ammo?

    OK Dude, I thought you liked BIG SUNGLASSES! Why the heck are you wearing those micro-bans? Mr. Elton John is at this moment writing to you with the phone number to his opthalmologist! Can you say BUG EYES? J/K -- couldn't resist. -Glenn
  13. Question: The Marines use what to clean their weapons now and twenty years ago? Answer: CLP and only CLP!!! Cleaner, Lubricant, & Preservative or MIL-L-63460D AM 6 NSN:9150-01-054-6453. BreakFree for you civilians. Not Hopes!!!! Using anything else (including Hopes) is un-authorized and can subject you to UCMJ action (AKA Article 15 or Court Martial). OK, so that might seem a bit harsh to court martial a soldier for using un-authorized commercial products to clean his weapon, but the military uses CLP (in most climates and cases) FOR A REASON: It prevents rust!!! So Marine, complain about Benelli if you must, but you must at least acknowledge that you didn't follow proper USMC procedures for weapons maitenance. Now drop down and knock'em out! Now that you've sufficiently conditioned your mind and body I have a few more questions. Have you contacted customer service and given them a chance to respond??? How much rust are you talking about? Light superficial rust that you can remove with a bit of scrubbing and CLP or that deep, embeded cancerous stuff that leaves pits? Pictures would tell your story better than words. It is very strange that there is no rust on the inside of the barrel where bare, machined metal is exposed. Tucker could be right in saying that the finish might actually hold a solvent longer and therefore lend itself to rusting much quicker. BTW, since your fire arm is on "display" I find it odd that you didn't notice this sooner; however, I do not find it odd that they are in your bedroom. Most Marines I know do sleep with their weapns Semper Fi, Glenn
  14. So Tucker, How is your new rifle shootn' for ya? You got us all on the egdes of our seat here. I have an M4 copy in .223 by Rock River Arms. I'm using it to hone my shooting skills before my deployment to Iraq later this year. I bought for a very serious reason; however, it turns out the thing is just darn fun to shoot! Still ... I wouldn't trade in my Walnut stocked R1 though. She owns my heart! Enjoy, Glenn
  15. I bet Lee is right. I had a similar feeding issue a while back and read a post (here) from someone (who?) who had this issue. Turns out it was 2 things for me: 1) The magazine sides where a bit tight -- I loosened them with my multi tool (they bend easily) & 2) I found that if I didn't seat the rounds all the way back in the magazine they mis-fed this way (sometimes jaming a round in tight!) If the magazine is too tight you'll notice very distinct feeding marks -- like scrapes or gouges on the cases. This happens most likely when the bolt pushes the round out of its confined space. Check your cases for deep scratches. Mine do not show these any more since I bent the very edge of the magazine out. Also, Tucker pointed out that if you have the older index nut vs spring lock this may contribute. I had mine changed. To date, no more feeding issues! As far as grouping is concerned. The R1 is very selective in regards to ammo. It wasn't until I used hand loaded Sierra match kings that I got sub MOA's with my 300 Win Mag. I had also did some work with the forearm -- it was touching the barrel in spots, so I relieved it a bit and can now slip a dollar bill in between them. Also, again take Tucker's very good advice with the other things he mentioned. For example "Have the scope and mounts been checked to see if all is well, physically and functionally?" Last week I treated my Ar-15 (M4 copy from Rock River Arms) to a new scope after only ever using iron sights. I expected sub MOA groups and got 3" groups -- I shot consistent 2 1/2" groups with iron sights! I was pissed and decided it was the wind (gusty 5-7 mph) until I removed the scope and found it slid back and forth on the rail 1/4". Rule #1 if you shoot poor groups with a scope check your mount! The R1 is like many High-end Italian machines. It is beautifully crafted, it needs to be treated right, and when it works good -- it works great! When it doesn't -- it gets frustrating. Ask any Lamborghini or Ferrari owner. Good luck, Glenn [ 08-15-2006, 07:52 PM: Message edited by: GlennRoss ]
