  1. Has it always done this, or did it just start? What type of ammo is stovepiping (brand, velocity, weight of the shot load) (No.... this gun, or any other, will perform at its best potential with EVERY type of ammo. There is some junk ammo out there)
  2. Black is the only color of Compact stock I have seen from the Benelli factory. Sorry, I do not have a stock on hand to measure. A call to Benelli customer service might provide that information.
  3. Benelli 12ga Compact Stock (black)

    Beads for SBE2

    Yes. Get a brass bead from Brownells, MidwayUSA, etc. with a 3-56 size threaded shank.
  5. I sent you a message with a source for both.
  6. Are you saying the 2nd shell is not coming out of the mag tube and cycling into the chamber? If that is the issue is the 2nd shell coming partially out of the magazine tube, but not getting far enough back into the action for the bolt to close and feed the shell into the chamber? - or is the 2nd shell not exiting the magazine tube at all?
  7. Chad007 - Did you get this issue resolved?

    Sbe mag plug?

    Yes, many hunting regulations in the USA, especially for migratory birds/waterfowl, limit shotgun capacity to 3 rounds total.
  9. Bolt handle is over inserted. Here is a picture of a M1- Note the step inside the receiver that my bolt handle stops on.
  10. Is that a new bolt handle? Is the handle inserted too far and contacting the inside of the receiver or binding on the slot behind the ejection port?
  11. had it tricked out a bit. What has been done to the gun? Are you saying the bolt will not move to the rear in the stripped down condition your pictures show? or when firing the gun?
  12. Most likely Mobil (a flush tube is 2" long) More info to help you identify the choke tube needed for you gun
  13. I can still ghost load* my M2 with the MOA Precision auto load parts. Since the J-Kenny parts use similar design mechanisms I suspect you can still ghost load, but I have no first hand experience with those parts. * My M2 bolt has the usual modification that allows ghost loading
  14. To close the bolt (without inserting shells into the tube) you press the bolt release - just like you do on a stock gun. If you shoot the gun dry the bolt locks open as expected. You can either press the bolt release to close the bolt, or load the tube and let the gun “auto load” All the “auto” parts actually do is (1) let you load the magazine tube with the bolt locked open on an empty gun (2) allow a shell to come out of the mag tube which activates the shell latch allowing the bolt to close and chamber that round chamber.
  15. The normal functions of the gun remain. You can still load the tube and leave the chamber empty, and you can open the bolt and remove the chambered round without emptying the magazine. If the bolt is closed (regardless of the chamber being empty or loaded) you can load round into the mag tube as in normal operation. The auto load feature allows you to have the gun completely empty (including the mag tube) and the bolt locked open, but now shells can still be inserted into the mag tube.. When you insert the first rounds into the mag tube the first round will then eject into the action and get chambered. This was all developed for competition guns so when the gun is shot dry only one loading technique is needed – just stuff shells into t mag tube and keep going– no need to insert a round into the action, close the bolt, then fill the tube. Whether the “modification” holds up under heavy use / high round count remains to be seen. I have a couple thousand rounds in on my M2 with the MOA Precision parts – so far so good.
  16. The Browning A5 (current model and the older “humback” Auto 5 with the 2 piece lifter) are the only shotguns that I know of with the “auto load” feature from the factory. The shell latch design of the Italian influenced guns (current Benelli, Beretta, Stoeger, Franchi) could be adapted, not so with the Remington 1100 or 11/87 action. There is a lot of “that's the way we've always done it” and “not designed here” in the firearms industry...and the Italians seem to have a “our way is the best way” attitude to firearms technology.
  17. The Browning A5 is factory designed to auto load. If you saw a Benelli or Stoeger with the auto load feature here in the USA the gun probably had the modification done by MOA Precision, they've had the parts available since early this year (2019). I have one on my RAS Benelli M2. The auto load feature allows you to shoot the gun to empty/bolt locked back, then you can insert shell(s) into the magazine tube and the first shell will automatically exit the mag tube and the action closes and “auto loads” the shell into the chamber. Here is a video demonstrating with my Benelli M2. Benelli Auto Load with MOA Precision parts
  18. Midwest Gun Works has the 20ga parts for your forearm, but I bet if you contact Benelli customer service they will get the correct parts to you.
  19. Is the barrel fully seated into the receiver? Are the metal spacers seen as part 16, 17, &18 on this schematic in place on the forearm? Benelli schematic
  20. Check with Phillips for a possible release trigger http://www.phillipsgunsmithing.com/home.html
  21. Loosen a bit more, or better yet remove the stock, then install the trigger group and its pins. Now reattach the stock. (The stock is impeding the trigger groups from seating into place where the trigger housing contacts the stock)
  22. “Carrier Loading” (aka Ghost Loading). See page 24 of the USMC M1014 manual LINK to USMC M1014 manual
  23. This company has a good reputation for laser engraving on firearms. They will send proofs before doing the actual engraving, very quick too. https://www.veritasmachiningllc.com/
  24. SBE uses the Mobil choke tube. SBE2 uses the Benelli Crio Plus choke tube (which is basically an extended version of the Mobil tube) More info on the various Benelli choke tubes
  25. FWIW Brownells has the M4 trigger group in stock
