  1. Had a great opener. We had some nasty weather all day yesterday. Rain mixed with snow and a slight breeze for most of the day. As we were walking out the clouds broke and was treated with a beautiful sunset. My camera in packed away so I didn't get a pic of it. Got a nice mixed bag with two hen GW teal, One drake & Hen Gaddy, a Drake pinner, and I finished my bag with a double on drake Widgeon. It took me about 7 shot to get me lead figured out again but it was one shot kills from there on out. My SBE performed flawlessly.
  2. I did some polishing on the bottom side of the bolt assembly. If you look at the underside you can see were it is sliding. I polished that area plus I polished the slide and the slide rails on the reciever. I also polished the end of the barrel (I think it's the barrel) were the extractor claw hits and then turns. As far as lube, I don't believe in excessive lube. What I do is pray a little CLP on the end of a q-tip and then I will hit all the friction points with it. Just enough to make it glisten, no more.
  3. You know, I did an excellent polish job on the frictions areas of my gun. Before I polished the parts the bolt would just about have to be all the way back to get the full force for it to slam down and rotate into battery. Since I polished everything and am using CLP I can pull the bolt back about 1 inch and let it go. The bolt head still rotates. So, I think the ammo change (I din't know Tom used Federal) polish job and the CLP has all made the difference. This is my first autoloader. So I'm unfamiliar with their "uniqueness." I'm just happy that is working like I expected. Thanks for all the advice I got from this forum even though it took me a while to try it all. It's that hard head of mine.
  4. Hey guys, well I know that I have made a few post stating the problems that I was having with my SBE. Even though it had been recomended that I try different brand shells I seriously thought that there was no way that a simple thing like that would do much good. I mean, I change brands of rifle ammo and have never had any problems? Anyway to make a long story short, I have switched from Kent to Federal. About 5.00 more a box but guess what? I have absolutley no problems now. My head is hard!! Maybe my wife has a point? Even today in a constant drizzle and heavier from time to time and laying in a coffin I had a wonderful day. 3 drake GWT, 1 drake Pintal and a drake mallard. and a sweet shooting gun.
  5. I took it out today with some different brand ammo. That with the polish job I did on it I didn't have a single problem! Not one, nadda! I was even laying down in a coffin shooting. Now, I'm excited! Everything seems to be working flaulessly! I LOVE IT!!!! Sorry for the misleading topic [ 12-09-2006, 08:14 PM: Message edited by: DeadlyBenelli ]
  6. Tucker. Does CLP ever evaporate off? Or will it stay on and continue to lube even on hot fall days?
  7. No, I keep forgetting to do that. I never think about it until I get home from work and then it is too late to call. Maybe I can remember that tomorrow???

    Sorry

    My post wasn't ment to be rude. It's just that this very same question has been brought up countless times over the last 2 months. My apologise.
  9. I'm here to answere your question Buck50 I was able to get out this past weekend and test it. I had two FTF. One was an a swing to the right at about the end of my range so I probably didn't have a good shoulder and the other was a test with a 2 3/4" light load just to see what would happen. Everything else worked perfectly. While I'm not 100% convinced yet the polishing did make a considerable improvment. Hope that helps.

    Sorry

    Talk about reduntant!? Even I'm getting tired of this question. Just look threw the last two pages. There is plenty of reading material.
  11. What message? All I see is the link to their home page. Never mind, I found what you are talking about. [ 12-05-2006, 07:12 PM: Message edited by: DeadlyBenelli ]
  12. If you have a pair of snap ring pliers they work real well.
  13. shoot some 3 1/2" 1 3/8 oz loads
  14. The bolt is not rotating fully into battery. Just do a search for "stovepiping," "misfires" you will read quite a bit. 1st off the inertia system on the seb's were not ment for light target loads. So having FTF doesn't surprise me.
