Tlon Posted December 7, 2012 Share Posted December 7, 2012 (edited) As I mentioned in another forum post, I'm new to the Benelli world, and frankly new to the semi-auto shotgun world. I have a M4, which I have not yet shot, but I've field stripped, cleaned, lubed, and put back to together. I just wanted to confirm that the pistons are supposed to slide up and down freely? That is, if I turn the gun from up and down from end to end the pistons will slide up and down and rattle a bit. I'm assuming this is normal, but I just wanted to check before I took it out to shoot. Also just curious if there is a trick/easy way to get the bolt arm to line up with the recoil spring when putting it back together. Seems like it took me a bunch of wiggling to get it to get into the socket. I tried both putting the bolt in first and putting the trigger assembly in first. Neither seemed any better. And speaking of springs, is there a trick to getting the magazine tube back into the tube? It was quite a bear to get in there after taking it apart and cleaning out the tube. I used snap ring pliers to remove it and put it back together, but just wondering if there is a good approach here as well. Sorry for newbie questions. Just wondering if I'm missing some tricks to make things easier to get together. Edited December 7, 2012 by Tlon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
