    M3 Questions?

    OK, I have some pics but I can not figure out how to post them on this web site. True there is an attachment icon on both the quick reply and regular reply options. However, using the icon I only get a chart of different types of attachments. Does my status as a junior member deny me the ability to post a pic. BTW I post pics on different web sites and emails for work all the time. Advise? Thanks, Novice

    M3 Questions?

    Geneleo and Hookster, Well, I finally got around to ordering the older style carrier latch from Brownells. It got here pretty quick and I dropped it in. PROBLEM SOLVED! I wonder why Benelli went to a new part. Just like the old adage, "if it ain't broke don't fix it". Thanks for all your help. Does any one think someone would want to buy a 1 round mag extension for a super 90 M3 for around $50 bucks? Thanks again. Novice

    M3 Questions?

    Hookster- I looked all over their website. I used the search engine and could not find that part. Thanks. The part on Brownells looks like the carrier latch in my friends older H&K build M3. Mine is smooth across the lip and even has a small lip that curves around the back side. Genello might be right in that it is the wrong carrier latch or a bad design on a newer model? I will try to break this thing down and take a pic of it. Thanks again. Novice

    M3 Questions?

    OK all. I have some new information. I should have looked at my buddy's M3 a little better. After a good inspection, his spring on his mag catch has the same tension as mine. The difference is my catch has a bigger rake to it on the end that holds the shell in the mag. No amount of loading, unloading or shooting will "break it in". My buddy's M3 is an older H&K build. I could not tell what year his is. It looks like I will need a different catch. So I will start looking. Thanks for the help and any suggestions as to look would be cool. Novice.

    Cksh8me, Yes it has a 1 round mag extention but the spring pressure in the mag is good. Not too much to make things hard. I think the catch spring may be the problem. It might be too stiff. Problem here is no one knows anything about a M3. When I get some time I need to work it out and I will post what I found out. I will look at Brownells too. Thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestion Geneleo. I will look at the Mesa Tacticle product. My buddy has an M3 to and he is a fabricator/machinist so we should be able to figure it out. Thanks again. Novice

    M3 Questions?

    Yes Hookster, it is attached to the bolt release. When you push the bolt release botton this part moves toward the center of the receiver. It it just stiff and needs to be broken in? Like I said the gun looks brand new and has no signs of wear or corrosion. I just unloaded it and loaded it again an the shells have to push past the curved section of the above described part. Are there upgrade parts available? Thanks for you help. Novice

    M3 Questions?

    Hookster-thanks for the reply. It is not the spring that makes it difficult. It is the flat metal part that curves out in front of the magazine that holds the shell in the mag. Sorry I don't know the name of it. It does have a one round extension. Could the spring affect the catch? It does feed very reliably. Thanks for the help. Novice.

    M3 Questions?

    I am surprised not many have looked at these questions. Please give me some insight. This is the Benelli run site after all.

    M3 Questions?

    Hi all. I am new and think I may have posted my questions yesturday in the wrong spot. My tag is M3novice for good reason. I bought a brand new looking M3 a few months back. It is really difficult to put rounds into the magazine. The part that holds them in is the stiff part. It will jack a shell into the chamber no problem but it can be painful to just load the magazine. She shoots well and I did really well with skeet. Another question would be if tritium parts for my ghost ring sites are available. Next would be a receiver mounted shell carrier. Does anybody make one for the M3? Thanks for all of your help. Novice.
  13. Hi all. I'm new and hoping for some advise for a new toy. I have a brand new looking M3 and have a question about the magazine catch? I am not sure of the proper term but it is the part you push the shell through to get bit into the magazine. When you rack the action to chamber a round it is slightly depressed to allow a round to be pushed out of the magazine and back where it can be jacked into the chamber. It it mostly flat with the end by the magazine sticking out. I know it is a lame description, sorry. My problem is that this part is really stiff and it can get to be painful to load the mag. You almost feel lik you will lose the end of your finger. In contrast my M.590 is almost silky and really quiet to load. Can I get a new part or adjust it? Also I was wondering about a good reciever mounted shell carrier with good capacity? An was also thinking about tritium sites. I have ghost ring and I think they are benelli. The post has a single dot and the ring has two dots. Any help would be appriciated. Thanks.
