Bolt carrier gash?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I bought an old stock SBEII. When I was examining it, I noticed a small chunk of metal missing from the bolt, or maybe a hell of a gash. I seem to remember, before I bought this one, seeing the same thing in other SBE's. Does anyone else have this in their bolts? I attached a pic. Thanks

I looked at a couple of Benelli bolts today and did not see any with that mark. Given the location I suspect that the assembler missed the mark and hit the edge the bolt when driving the bolt handle retainer pin into place, or the bolt fell off a table somewhere along the way.

From the picture it appears to be a cosmetic issue. Unless your bolt shows evidence of a crack going into the body of the bolt I would not worry about it.
