This is an update to the post I made on Sept 18th here: https://forums.benelliusa.com/topic/24783-help-new-m4-bolt-hangingsticking/ . After contacting Benelli and them stating my brand spanking new M4 needed to go back, I sadly packed it up and shipped it out, including a note as to what was happening, and copies of the photos I had posted in the last post showing the damage to the extractor and where it was grinding against the side of the bolt and hanging up. Fast forward to today, and the gun returned, 40 days later. I did not receive any communication from Benelli beyond that the gun was being shipped back, IE no explanation as to the issue/work/repair done. I eagerly opened the box, and was surprised by what I found. Inside with this document, see attached pic, explaining the work that was done. In short, it looks like they modified/widened the extractor groove on the bolt head, checked tolerances, test fired, and . . . Thats it. Extractor still all gouged on the bottom side. I can confirm the gun was test fired, as it was not cleaned afterwards and was dirty with residue. I cleaned it up, oiled it, put it back together, and ran the bolt. At first the bolt was hanging up/not smooth, however things seem to smooth out a touch after a few racks, so not sure if it was because it was dirty or what. Note that I actually since then have purchased a M1014, and that bolt is buttery smooth, this one less so when racking side by side. I would be interested to know the thoughts of the collective. I am a patient guy, and have been for the 40 days I have been waiting for my brand new 2k gun to return. I guess I would say I am disappointed, but dont want to be overreacting either. Thoughts?
Hi guys. My factory charging handle on my M2 SP (8-10k rounds through it) came out for the 3rd time this year whilst shooting a IPSC match. I normally ad a drop of lubrication on the shaft before installing it. Is this my mistake? What do you guys do?
Hi all. New to this group. Have been a happy Benelli M1 Super 90 Tactical (non pistol grip) owner for over 10 years. Anyways I took some weight measurements of the Nordic Components and Benelli charge handles with my Dillon beam scale. Thought others might be interested as I could not find this information before. Benelli charge handle 203.0 gr 13.15 g .4229 oz Nordic Components charge handle 151% heavier 306.6 gr 19.87 g .6388 oz Feel of the NC handle is worlds better. Just a tad sharpness to the outer edge but does not pose a problem in the direction of pull. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet and probably wont any time soon as I am stuck in the city. I tried to find a Ti non-rotating handle. Freedom Fighters Tactical has only a M4 version but when I emailed them I got the response " Keep an eye on our sight through the year end...". So keep your fingers crossed. Progressive Machine and Tools seems to be out of business (even though web site still up). If I have missed a company please speak up. -Scott
