  1. Are you pressing in the bolt release while inserting the trigger group?
  2. It should run just fine with decent quality 1200 fps (3DE) 1 1/8oz loads.
  3. Here is another idea. This device acts as a bolt release lever with no modification to the factory Latch Carrier https://www.brownells.com/shotgun-parts/bolt-parts/bolt-hardware/benelli-rapid-bolt-release-tabs-prod61488.aspx
  4. The bolt release “button” is an add on part. You will need to drill and tap the stud on your factory part to accept the screw for the button (buttons available from Nordic, Briley, Taran Tactical, Arrendondo, etc). The tapped size will vary based on the brand (generally 4-40, 5-50, or 6-32. A hint...DO NOT drill all the way through the factory part. The stud can break loose easily. A blind tapped hole about .250” is best
  5. More than one way to skin the cat, and your intended use comes into play.... I prefer the sling sockets opposite the ejection port side so I can sling the gun tight on my back without the bolt handle gouging me. Drop the rear QD about half way down the stock and its away from your face when the gun is mounted. Yeah, the picture is a rifle but my scatter gun hangs the same way when slung in matches. You get the idea.
  6. I use a lot of those Noveske QD sockets myself.
  7. “Flite Control” buck is a different animal from the traditional buck shot load. The Flite Control will perform best with little or no choke constriction. The idea is that the buckshot stays in the wad for a few yards after exiting the barrel and holds the shot in a tighter pattern on the target (and it works!) Try your Improved Cylinder or Cylinder (no constriction) choke tube and see what works best with that Flite Control buck. Too much choke constriction slows the wad at the muzzle letting the shot exit the wad sooner and negating the effect of the “Control” design.
  8. Take the trigger group out and check the spring tension on the Carrier (floor plate). Does it have tension with the trigger group out of the gun? If so, check for any binding/rubbing of the Carrier, Bolt latch (dog) and/or its spring against the side of the receiver where the trigger group is installed. If the Carrier has no spring tension with the trigger group out of the gun check that the spring and strut are not bent and the area where they contact the trigger housing and bolt latch is not damaged or hampering the spring compression or movement. Link to a schemat
  9. Really?....We'll see about that....
  10. Post that video showing the loading procedure and problem. The M4 shell carrier SHOULD move back down after loading each shell. The shell latch (shell stop) will hold the shotshell in the magazine tube – if the the shell latch is working properly AND the shell you just loaded is fully inserted into the tube.
  11. This Reduced Power Spring Kit will yield similar results http://tarantacticalinnovations.com/tti-ultimate-benelli-power-pack-spring-set/
  12. A lot of the 3 Gun shooters reliable run guns with 12 round mag tubes which, when filled, add a good bit more weight than your Surefire fore end and 2 shot mag extension. Those items - by themselves - should not cause any issues. IMHO, and from a lot of observation, I think the pistol grip inertia guns are more prone to short cycling with lighter loads that the conventional stock guns. Why? Because the triangle shape, bone support, etc. of your arm when gripping the pistol grip limits the gun's movement to the point of not allowing the needed momentum to adequate compress the iner
  13. Is this the 1145 fps load? If so, even with 1.25 oz payload the recoil generated is on the edge of “not enough” to cycle your specific gun. IIRC Federal has a 1325 fps Flite Control buck shell that should fix your issue.

  15. It is my understanding that our government's import laws prohibits Benelli from importing a SBS but does allow "manufacturing" them here in the US. Benelli imports the longer barrel guns with the sight in the correct location to easily make a short barrel once the guns are here.
  16. Yes, do that. The spring/tube may not be too dirty, but a piece of shot or chip of plastic (from a shell hull) could be binding things. You'll see that soon enough when removeing the spring.
  17. What type/brand of shells is she using now? Were these shells being used when the gun closed properly? When you take the bolt and carrier out for cleaning make the sure the cam pin and its slot is well greased when reassembled. Check that cam pin for any unusual wear or burrs.
  18. Yes, more is better.
  19. I've drilled and tapped several of them. The receiver metal is too thin for a blind hole - so drill all the way through, tap, then trim the screws so they do not protrude too far into the inside of the receiver. The receiver is aluminum... don't over tighten the screw and strip the threads in those holes!
  20. Part #58 on this schematic? http://www.brownells.com/schematics/Benelli-U-S-A-/Super-Black-Eagle-sid570.aspx#s15447sid570 If that is what you need send me message with your address and I'll send you one. You can either send me $10 or promise to take a kid, or new shooter, out to the range sometime.
  21. https://taccom3g.com/product/load-assist/ I bet this is what you are looking for...
  22. PM back to you...(I may have sent it twice...)
  23. Still available? If it is I will take it for $150
  24. You are on the right track. The Super Nova can have a plate attached to the stock tube (via a homemade coupling) for the new recoil pad screw into, but the Nova generally get a wooden block epoxied inside the stock. Most epoxies will not bind well to the stock polymer, so cut some groves, notches, etc. inside the stock so the epoxy can mechanically lock into the recesses.
