  1. If it "shot out" upon trying to remove the retainer itself, use a screwdriver (I use a Phillips) in order to keep any projectile issues at bay upon removal. Otherwise, try using your thumb to catch the retainer as you remove the cap. If nothing else, you might try replacing the spring retainer as it could be that the current one has been worn a bit too smooth. Of course, there is the idea that the spring itself may simply be a bit too long.
  2. Easy breakdown...just refer to the manual.
  3. I am sure that any competent gunsmith would be able to replace the tube for you without too much trouble. In fact, the hardest part would probably be finding a replacement. Now, you could probably replace this tube yourself, but you would need the proper tools and perhaps, some Loctite red (for instance). Given the cost of these items, along with the potential of screwing things up, you would probably be better off just having a "professional" do the installation.
  4. To the OP: I am sure this has been mentioned before, but regardless of what you are using as a "base" for your safe, I strongly suggest keeping several dessicants inside, in order to help keep things dry. I personally prefer those which can be reactivated within an oven (these come in metal canisters). How many one should use depends on the square footage of the safe. Dehumidifiers are also available, but may be less cost effective vs. the dessicants. This is true. However, many thieves want an "easy" acquisition of goods, unless they have quite a bit of time on their hands. Hence, even if a safe is "merely" bolted to a wall via the studs (preferably close to the floor), this takes effort and time; time which a potential thief may not have. Particularly when other valuables are in plain sight. So, for instance, better a wall mounted safe than nothing at all. Besides, ever try to bolt a small 2 gun safe to a floor? Not nearly as "easy" as doing the same with one of those monolithic, 500+lb. safes! Of course, effective weapon insurance, to me, means more than any of this. After all, if someone wants your weapons badly enough, given enough time and skill, even that "fort knox" style safe (bolted to the floor) won't keep this stuff from going "bye-bye." It is all about making things harder for the thief. But, impossible? This is very tough to do, IMHO.
  5. Did the gun not come with an Owners Manual? If not, go here to download one from the Benelli site: http://www.benelliusa.com/downloads/manuals.php This should give you a good start, at least in terms of breaking down the gun for cleaning duty. In terms of videos, AGI usually has good stuff. Unfortunately, their videos do not cater to the Benelli crowd. So, if after perusing the Owners Manual you are left wanting more, you might try searching YouTube for a good video. I can almost guarantee they are out there. You will just have to do a bit of searching and of course, be wary of separating the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Of course, the previously mentioned guide by "Tucker301" would be good reading as well. Either way, if your gun does not have a manual, I would at least take the time to download it...if able.
  6. Price reduction C'mon...you guys are killing me! Nobody here needs a light? And an inexpensive, high quality one at that! Anyway, I am reducing the cost of the M3X light to $90 shipped. If bought with the $35 shotgun adapter, I will ship both for $120.
  7. I am selling an Insight Technologies M3X tactical illuminator (long gun version) white light system. This light originally came with a short, "handgun style" remote switch. This was not ideal. Hence, I bought a curly cord remote switch to allow for practical use with a pump shotgun. This particular remote switch will be needed if you plan on using this on such a weapon...trust me. Also, for sale is an Insight Technologies shotgun adapter which will allow the M3X (along with other lights) to be attached to a shotgun via the tube. All items listed are in new condition and come in factory case (documentation included). No blemishes or mechanical issues of any kind. These will be shipping from Oklahoma. I am asking $100 shipped for the M3X light, which will include the curly cord remote switch and, of course, the original "handgun" length switch. If bought new, this light (along with the curly cord remote switch) would easily cost over $200. I will also include a spare set of batteries. For the shotgun adapter, the asking price is $35 shipped. This adapter will work with multiple lights and/or shotguns. I have used this for both my Supernova and Mossberg 590. If you buy both items, the asking price will be $130 shipped. Below are links to the various items for sale. These links are to the manufacturer website, detailing these items. I provided these links vs. simply having posted my own pics because I felt that much more useful information could be gathered this way. http://www.insighttechgear.com/products-m3x-lg.htm http://www.insighttechgearstore.com/xseries-shotgun-remote.html (will be included with light) http://www.insighttechgearstore.com/shotgun-adapter1.html If the previously mentioned prices do not suit you, PM me and maybe we can work something out. But, IMHO, these items are priced more than fair...given their quality and initial expense. This light is mil-spec, light in weight, water proof (to a degree), bright, comes equipped with 2 styles of remote switches, offers a respectable battery life and is very durable. Here is a pic with the light (and curly cord remote) installed on my shotgun...
  8. As my post implied, this gun has the Steadygrip stock (which is the Benelli pistol grip stock) and ghost ring sights. Also, as you may have seen in the pic, it is black. The condition is like new, with roughly 50 rounds or so through the gun (all low recoil Federal).

  9. You have a Supernova Tactical for sale??? Comfortech stock or pistol grip? ghost ring or rifle sights? black or desert camo? condition and use?

  10. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that "yes," these guns will use the same barrel. The main difference between the two guns, aside from minor improvements, seems to involve stock interchangeability. Hence, the Nova does not allow for this, while the Supernova does.
  11. Personally, I do not prefer the 6 shell sidesaddle; its a balance/weight thing for me. Hence, I generally prefer the 4 shell configuration (I used the Mesa Tactical for a while). Of course, after a bit of trial and error, I went with a butt stock mounted carrier (Mesa Tactical 4 shell). The only downside is, you need to have the SteadyGrip stock in order to use this particular item. Luckily, this is my stock of choice.
  12. This is the only pic I have for now. I can try to take a few more for those who are truly interested in this gun. But, pictures wont do this gun justice. It is "like new" and rock solid. As a side note- If any are wondering why I am selling this gun, it is simply because I have opted to make the Mossberg 590A1 my primary shotgun of choice, for various reasons. Hence, the Benelli is now my "safe queen" and in essence, is no longer needed. Also, if some here are interested in either the gun and/or accessories, yet cannot reconcile the price(s), PM me and let me know why. Maybe we can work something out....if reasonable.
  13. I am selling my SuperNova Tactical which comes equipped with ghost ring sights and a SteadyGrip stock. It has seen only 50 rounds or so since I bought it new just over one year ago. Also, I have a Comfortech stock which I am needing to sell, either with or without the gun. In addition, I have miscellaneous accessories such as a weapon mounted light (by Insight), a Mesa Tactical shell carrier, a Nordic Components +2 mag extension and the like. In terms of the shotgun, I am asking $400 (minus S+H). For the Comfortech stock, I am asking $65 (including shipping). If you buy this stock with the gun, I will sell it for $50. If interested in the other accessories, please PM me for prices. BTW- While I would certainly be willing to ship the shotgun out of state, I would prefer to sell locally. Either way, this gun will ship from Oklahoma City. If bought locally, the price will be $400 cash. If bought out of state, again, I will ask for $400+S&H (via PayPal only). Keep in mind, this is not a desperate sale. So, don't expect me to just give this weapon away. Hence, the price is fairly non-negotiable. If I have to sell it for much less, I would be better off keeping the weapon. However, the accessories I really do not need, save for the NC extension, regardless of whether or not I sell the shotgun. This includes the Comfortech stock. So, if you are not wanting the gun but are interested in the stock or whatever, don't hesitate to contact me. PM me if interested or if you have any questions. Thanks. Here is a pic, albeit a bad one, of this gun...along with some of the previously mentioned accessories.
