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
Hello, I love my beautiful Supersport Performance 12 GA. What I don't love is that the extended chokes are coming loose. This is a pretty expensive gun to have such a critical flaw. I clean the threads and lube the chokes after each day at the range. However, they just do not hold. They are coming loose before I even finish a round of trap. NOT acceptable. I even use the choke tool, and tighten them down to a point where I feel if I add more torque, I may strip the threads. Again not acceptable. Other forums suggest using a heavy grease to help keep the tubes in place, rather than the lube that comes with the gun. All advice appreciated. Thanks.
