LBDB1A Posted July 30, 2004 Share Posted July 30, 2004 Remember that even though the barrel of the Benelli`s are chrome plated the area machined for the choke tube thread/diameter etc. is not chrome plated and will rust. In the worse case the tube will seize in the barrel due to rust even though the tubes are stainless steel. My new M2 i bought yesterday had minor rust in the thread and machined area ...no big issue, i just removed the choke tube , cleaned the rust and lubed up the area. When i am done i will use a good choke tube lube or Militec-1 and go hunting. This is not unique to Benelli , new guns have machining/cooling residue etc. that can cause corrosion if not removed and the area lubricated during the manufacturing process. Also my choke tube wrench had rusty fingerprints on it . Must be hot in Italy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
