Westro Posted November 9, 2009 Share Posted November 9, 2009 My father and I own a boat load of Benellis, M1s, M2s, Ultralights, one Cordoba and one SBEII. Very, very few issues with Benelli and that is why we continue to buy them. But this last weekend I had an issue with my older Super 90 M1, its a 21 inch, 1 shot extended magazine gun (Tom K.'s). South Dakota I keep 3 shots in the mag (none in the chamber) and then use the bottom button to put a shell below the bolt and then I cycle a shell into the chamber. Then put a shell back into the mag. But 4 times rooster presents itself and there is nothing, but a shell gets moved from the mag to below the bolt and the bolt doesn't cycle. I can cycle the shell out and everything is fine. The bolt is closed and I hunted this way, with this gun hard on pheasants for 9 years! I'm a seasoned hunter and avid Benelli owner, but this one has got me baffled. I went as far as pulling EVERYTHING apart to still have the same issue. My first thought was the firing pin, but after inspection it isn't bent/broke. Any ideas as to what maybe going on? Of course I took it apart and cleaned it, verified everything and still got the same thing the next day 1 time. Fed up I simply moved to my 20 gauge Ultra Light. In short, my failure is simply when I pull the trigger I don't get a bang and I get a shell moved from the mag to below the bolt. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
