Montefeltro 20ga forend cap issue

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I recently received a Monte which I love, but have a question as a new Benelli owner.

 

The forend cap has to be screwed down extremely tight to get the forend snug against the receiver, even with this a 1/64-1/32 gap remains between the cap and the plastic forend piece. When I take the barrel off and place it in the case this is not an issue, it sits flat on the forends plastic cap.

 

One concern is that I have it too tight and may crack the forend. I know this is an issue with the other "B" brand's models.

 

Is this normal? Benelli has already sent a new cap, which helped a lot, but a gap remains.

I wouldn’t worry about this. I notice the same thing you describe on a gun I own, and in my case the issue was 15 years ago with no problem.

While you tighten the forend cap, you notice a clicking. When you hear this, you can stop tightening the forend cap.
