Something I've been meaning to do for some time.

 

Here's a reference guide for the disassembly, cleaning, and re-assembly of the SBE/SBEII shotguns.

 

It's not perfect, but hopefully it will help with the never-ending flood of newbie gun owners who come here looking for their backsides with their baseball mitt :D

Any info on removing and cleaning the recoil spring in the tube in the stock. I had read somewhere on this forum to remove the heavy shipping grease from the spring. I got the stock off and saw the two flats on the threaded tube cap but was unable to remove from the recoil tube with moderate force. I didnt want to force it and am not really sure how necessary it is to get at that spring---it shouldnt really get dirty in there. Nowhere in the Benelli manual does it mention cleaning the spring/tube.

My SBEII had no heavy shipping grease on the recoil tube.

 

The earlier SBE models have loctite on the threads, and a little heat in the right place will help quite a bit.

 

The newer models use a nylon washer and heat should not be used.

 

Check your parts manual.

If you have the nylon washer style, you'll just need to apply a little more pressure.

I clamped my receiver in a padded vise and used an adjustable wrench, giving some firm taps on the wrench handle with a light hammer.

Tucker,

 

I'm considering purchasing an M2. I've only owned O/U's and SxS's so this would be my first automatic. Cleaning a "break open" shotgun is very easy, and of course they will shoot even if they are rarely cleaned.

 

How would cleaning the M2 compare to your SBE Guide for Dummies ? Are the parts and components for the guns basically the same?

 

Thanks,

 

Ike
