Hi, I'm shamefully new to the Benelli forums. After owning various Benelli's and even using an M4 on patrol, I just never signed up here. Anyway, I recently purchased a new SuperNova Tactical LE model (20159) which utilizes the telescoping stock. The manual states for Trigger Assembly Group removal (Page 59 in the 01/2017 version): "When the pistol grip or telescopic stock is installed on the shotgun the stock must be loosened before the trigger guard assembly can be removed from the receiver. To do this partially unscrew the pistol grip stock retaining nut or the telescopic grip retaining ring nut; thus making it possible to detach the pistol grip stock or the telescopic stock grip front the receiver to provide the space necessary for removing the trigger guard assembly." What tool do you use to remove this nut??? I have searched all over the internet and YouTube. Over the last two months, I've sent repeated messages to Benelli (using their online submission form) and never got a response. I called customer service this past week, and they told me to use either a crescent wrench or pliers. I'm having a hard time believing that Benelli loosens and tightens this nut using a crescent wrench or pliers (plus it doesn't make good contact). I don't want to mar the pistol grip loosening this thing. It has holes in it as if there is some sort of special spanner wrench to loosen and torque the nut. Does anyone know what tool Benelli really uses and the proper way to loosen this thing since it is required for a general field strip? I saw this question posted on here back in 2010 or 2011, and they never got a response. Thanks in advance for any advice that can be given! Jeff
Hey folks, We have been receiving a number of requests for telescoping recoil stock for the Benelli SuperNova patterned after our popular LEO stocks for the Remington and Mossberg platforms. The only way this would be viable is if the stock support rod in the rear of the SuperNova (that simulates a recoil spring tube in a semi-auto) can be easily removed in the field. I just tried to remove the nut that is at the base of the rod at the receiver and it doesn't seem to want to come loose. I am pretty sure that, as with the magazine tube, this is never meant to be removed in the field; but I was also wondering whether, as with the magazine tube, there is a secret trick to getting it off. Obviously with a plastic shotgun receiver I am reluctant to apply a lot of heat. Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove this without destroying the weapon?
