Old S90 vs. New S90 extra round on shell


Recommended Posts

I was told the older version of the Super 90 would allow you to put an 8th round on the shell carrier for target shooting. They said the new models did away with this feature. What is the real story. Also, how can I tell if I own a new one or old one???? Can you tell by serial number or can you see the part change in the gun? Any help.

I'm not sure, but I think the new ones have a triangular safety button.

My SBE has a round button and it'll hold the 4th shell on the carrier.

Both of my S90's (12 and 20) have the triangular button and they won't.

tymber,

 

Easiest way to identify whether your Super 90 can carry the extra shell is to look at the underside of your bolt. Refer to the pictures and text I posted in this thread for details:

In the pictures I link to there, the head on the coin is looking at the extra cut in the bottom of the newer bolt. That is what keeps you from being able to stuff the extra shell in there. I don't know how it does it, exactly, but it does. Fill in that cut, if you have it on your bolt, and you will get your extra round.
