  1. Just stay away from GG&G. I had one that would, periodically, fall out during cycling and finally broke leaving most of the shaft in the bolt.
  2. Cut the spring. Worst case, you cut too much and buy a new one. They are cheap. How much to cut? (WARNING: math will be involved! Continue only if you are comfortable with using a calculator.) Measure the amount of the 7th shell that extends past the shell catch (call this X). Next remove the spring, reassemble the tube with retention clip and follower, insert 7 shells. Measure the space to the shell catch (call this A). Measure the space where the spring extends into the follower (call this B) Measure the space where the spring extends into the retention clip (call this C) The length of the compressed spring is calculated as A+B+C (call this Y) Now, measure the uncompressed spring (call this Z) If you remove X amount of spring from Y, the 7th shell will fit into the tube. So, we need to convert Y-X= (compressed cutoff) into an uncompressed cutoff. To do this, determine what percent of Y is X and then apply that percentage to Z to derive the amount to cut off. (OK, just key this into your calculator) X/Y=F FxZ= amount to cut off of uncompressed spring (NOTE: calculations with work with both 'merican and metric measurements). This is your first cut. After trying it, you may need to take off another ring of the spring to allow for compression past the shell catch (unless you included that in your X measurement). This worked for me. Hope it works for all of you.
  3. Yes, the auto load lifter worked, plug and play, with the installation of the A&S trigger guard. Note, however, that prior to purchasing the A&S trigger guard, I had already ground down the notch on the shell latch.
  4. Update: I shot a 3-gun match today and the upgrades worked perfectly. The auto lifter saved so much time when the shotgun ran dry (not having to deal with putting one in the chamber and closing prior to reloading the tube). Also, the A&S trigger guard guided the second round of a double stack reload right into alignment with the port. I strongly recommend both products.
  5. It works! After many attempts to tune the parts, I stumbled onto a solution by simply installing an A&S trigger guard. With the conversion to the A&S, the auto lifter functions flawlessly in my M4. I have to assume that the stock Benelli trigger guard was not true to spec.
  6. Update, the replacement part has arrived; however, I am waiting for a new trigger guard from A&S before rebuilding the gun.
  7. Josh is sending me a new lifter. I went a little over-board with my tuning. It was completely my fault but he is replacing it for free.
  8. I was standing in a shooting box, and it was just outside to the right. So, it fell nearly straight down.
  9. Problem solved. My GG&G bolt handle broke during last week's 3-gun event. 😡
  10. While this is a drop in product, some tuning is required. It works most of the time but I need it to work every time. I have been working with the owner of the company to get it dialed in. We are very close. Note, I have an M4 which has small differences from the M2 trigger group. The last issue is an 8th of an inch hang that is, occasionally, catching the shell rather than letting it pass. Josh Kenny is very helpful and very receptive to my issues. I just need to get back to my workbench and polish the butt end of the shell catch. Josh indicated that this has fixed the issue for many others with the same issue.
  11. Lifter just arrived in today's mail. Great turn around time. Stay tuned...
  12. I've ordered one ($207 shipped). Will let you know how it goes.
  13. Thanks for the info. Only my after market handle has been dislodged. Let me check the tolerances.
  14. I don't have that, but I can make this work. Thanks.
  15. I have had the same problem. It happens sporadically, I have been lucky enough to find each time. I would also like to hear of a solution. Will inspect my detente parts; however, I can pull on the bolt handle and it is tight. Some how, it gets released (falls out) during the cycling operation.
