Cycling Problem

Recommended Posts

My problem is somewhat more complicated. Once I chamber a round and release the second, the third will not release from the tube after firing the first two. I have broken down the shotgun and inspected the moving parts, and all seem to be fine, but when I put it all back together again, it still won't load the third shell. Is there a trick, or is my SBE broken.

 

P.S. I bought the gun after it was used for duck hunting for two seasons, so the break-in period is not the problem?

Your SBE is definitely broken. I believe the warranty is for the original owner only, so you'll have to take it to a gunsmith. No loss though - based on my experience the Benelli service folk are not capable of fixing anything.

I have a friend with the same issue but it only occurs with 3.5 inch shells. Third shell will not come out of mag. I have a newer SBE II and have had no issues with mine. I also have the SS II with no issues there.

Does the 3rd round stay wedged in postion or is it resting against the shell stop, when this problem occurs.Can you be a bit more in depth with the problem.

Why do you release the second shell after chambering the first shell? Just curious.

 

I doubt your Benelli is 'broken'. You might have a bent magazine tube, weak magazine spring, dirt or grit in the magazine tube that is binding the follower, a damaged follower, etc.

 

I tried the magazine kit from Sure Cycle, but it caused too many problems, so I went back to the factory parts.

 

I would take the gun apart and try dropping the follower down the mag tube to see if it gets stuck anywhere. If the mag tube is bent, you may want to order a new tube or send back to Benelli for repair.

 

With the bird hunting seasons just a few days away, don't expect Benelli to work on your gun right away and get it back to your quickly.

Wow! After it was used for 2 duck hunting seasons? Duck hunters can be the hardest on guns... not cleaning them and such. I would suspect the magazine assembly. Just check to make sure the follower isn't in backwards. I have seen this happen many times after someone has cleaned the gun and had trouble on the last round. It doesnt help the fact that Benelli insists on putting that crappy plastic follower in either. Also, just try to operate the gun normally (2 in the mag, 1 in the pipe) to see if it works that way.
