SeraphimofNight Posted July 26, 2009 Share Posted July 26, 2009 Hey all, just a few questions to clarify some of my problems. First off, I purchased and installed a 2shot extension for my benelli m4, but this is where my problem began as I did not do the install of it or assemble the gun (the store did). It is a problem because I"m assuming they did it right, but am not sure. Like many of you one of my first problems came with the failure of the spring to insert the final shell in test firing, also like others have noticed i had difficulty in getting 7 shells into it, topping out at 6. Frustrated, I came here and after reading I decided to re-install the original 5 shot tube and spring until i could get a benelli extension or spring. When I pulled this apart I was immediately struck by how the original spring for the 5 shot was not only much longer, it was much stronger than the add-on spring for the 7 shot. Also, there was a part that had not been installed - the spring retaining clip which was left out with the original 5-shot mag and apparently not installed by the gunshop. When re-installing i carefully reached the part where you install the spring retaining clip and much to my dismay the retainer did not even fit in the mag but rather was the same diameter and has no chance of going into the tube (this was confusing as I did not originally disassemble it and the manual instructions made no sense with the 5 shot mag). When i went to double check the user manual, the spring slipped from my grasp and shot that retaining clip to god knows where. So, do I actually need that part that did not even properly fit in the 5-shot mag? Or can the weapon function fine without it? Or, even if it is fine without it in the 5-shot, will I need it for a better 7 shot extension and spring combo? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
