So I took out my Benelli M3 for the first time the other day. I got it used for a song. I got to the range and prepared to load the tube mag to capacity and found I could only insert 2 shells. I thought this was strange and unloaded the firearm and started unscrewing the end of the tube mag. Well I was not expecting the force behind the spring and the mag limiter and other parts shot out into the grass behind the firing line. Stupid.
Anyway, I think I recovered all the parts. Now I am trying to reassemble the tube magazine, spring and limiter. The manual doesn't show the same parts that I have. I went to Brownell's and some other sites to look at exploded parts diagrams - not much help either.
So in a last ditch effort I am trying to upload 3 photos to the forum to let some of you guys see how I put it back together and see if you guys think it's right...but I can't upload photos. Can anybody help me out with this one?
