Super 90 Locking head.

Super 90 locking head issues.

so my Super 90 locking head hangs up and will not turn completely back into the bolt carrier. I have cleaned this gun many times and the recoil spring as well. I am shooting 3" heavy steel. After the first shoot there is not a second shot due to the bolt not seating all the way forward. Help

Search the forum for "Benelli click".  It's a long-time known issue with some guns. Various fixes have been tried with mixed results.  I fixed one of my guns with a swap of locking heads between guns.  Fixed another one by replacing the original blued locking head with a newer version chromed head.  It happens regardless of the loads;  heavy, light, slugs, buckshot, birdshot.  Benelli never really acknowledged a problem, putting the blame on dirty guns, ammunition, not holding the gun properly, et. al.  A couple of years ago they finally made a modification of the bolt on a couple of models that appears to have corrected the problem .  Unfortunately, the re-designed bolt group isn't backward compatible with older guns.
