Benelli M1 - Bolt won’t retract all the way

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Recently purchased a used M1 and had it tricked out a bit.  Upon reassembling the gun, the bolt will not retract all the way.  Completely tore the gun apart to check for obstructions and can’t figure out what is short stopping the bolt from going back and leaving the chamber open in the locked position.  Would appreciate any insight.

What has been done to the gun?

Are you saying the bolt will not move to the rear in the stripped down condition your pictures show? or when firing the gun?

Cosmetics on the exterior, forcing combs lengthened, chokes, trigger work.

 

correct, the bolt will not move to the rear position.  Goes about half way and stops...hard, like something is obstructing it.  Checks the rails and they are clear.

Is that a new bolt handle? Is the handle inserted too far and contacting the inside of the receiver or binding on the slot behind the ejection port?

Not sure on this, I can't get the bolt handle out (even with pliers)  It does not appear this is the issue.

Correct, my original thought was something was stopping it in the butt spring area.  Tore the gun apart to make sure and let the carrier link hanging down for picture purposes.

If it worked before sending it in then it seems like the problem is with the shop you used then...

Bolt handle is over inserted. Here is a picture of a M1- Note the step inside the receiver that my bolt handle stops on.
