New Super Vinci Problems

Recommended Posts

I just bought a new super Vinci. This last weekend i shot it for the first time and it jammed at least 80% of the time after the first shot. Is this normal until it breaks in or should i return it?

Which types of loads were you using to break it in? There is a minimum you need to follow at 1st as per Benelli's instructions.

 

It also needs to be shouldered tight on your body - the Inertia system requires it to function properly (in combination to other factors of course).

 

80% of the time is very high so there is definately something here that's causing it. If you use the proper ammo and shouldered it properly, I'd take it to a gunsmith / store you bought it from for them to look at it from the inside-out.

 

Good luck with it

Ben

Benelli generally recommends you shoot at least 1 1/8 oz load. This is the minimum needed to get the inertia system to work properly. Try a heavy load and see what happens. 3" in BB should be sufficient. Unload a couple of boxes of that stuff to help with the break in. A lot will shoot below 1 1/8oz after break in and claim to have no issues. Personally, I don't take chances. I buy 1 1/8 + and never have problems. When I hunt, I don't want the embarassment of a FTF or jam using a Benelli. I refuse to give my buddies a chance to tease me about unreliability issues from Benellis. If you have done the above, take it back to the dealer or contact Benelli.

 

Good Luck.

 

Cheers

Thank you guys. i'll try it. I shot Fed 2-3/4 1 1/8 #8 Quail hunting. Most of the Jamming occurred will my son shot and he most likely did not hold the gun tight to the shoulder, and we did not break it in.
