Ran mine in an ipsc lv3 this weekend, saved my bacon a couple of times due to some poor shot placement

While this is a drop in product, some tuning is required.  It works most of the time but I need it to work every time.  I have been working with the owner of the company to get it dialed in.  We are very close.  Note, I have an M4 which has small differences from the M2 trigger group.  The last issue is an 8th of an inch hang that is, occasionally, catching the shell rather than letting it pass. Josh Kenny is very helpful and very receptive to my issues.  I just need to get back to my workbench and polish the butt end of the shell catch.  Josh indicated that this has fixed the issue for many others with the same issue.

Would love an update from you guys on this!

Shot 3 shotgun only comps (400ish rounds) with it in the m2. Still working, does well on an empty start

Hey Tycoon!

Have you returned from your work bench yet!  ;-{) 

Am wondering if you got this installed and working correctly.

Thanks.

Josh is sending me a new lifter.  I went a little over-board with my tuning. It was completely my fault but he is replacing it for free.

Update, the replacement part has arrived; however, I am waiting for a new trigger guard from A&S before rebuilding the gun.

It works! After many attempts to tune the parts, I stumbled onto a solution by simply installing an A&S trigger guard.  With the conversion to the A&S, the auto lifter functions flawlessly in my M4.  I have to assume that the stock Benelli trigger guard was not true to spec.

Update: I shot a 3-gun match today and the upgrades worked perfectly.  The auto lifter saved so much time when the shotgun ran dry (not having to deal with putting one in the chamber and closing prior to reloading the tube). Also, the A&S trigger guard guided the second round of a double stack reload right into alignment with the port.  I strongly recommend both products.

So with the A&S trigger guard you didn’t need to do any modding or fitting for the autolifter to work? Just plug and play?

I ended up removing mine, wasn't reliable enough. Saw two of them this weekend at Central European Shotgun Championship crap the bed, the Russian team I was shooting with all removed their lifters after trialling them.

Yes, the auto load lifter worked, plug and play, with the installation of the A&S trigger guard.  Note, however, that prior to purchasing the A&S trigger guard, I had already ground down the notch on the shell latch.
