Benelli SBE3 Forend Cap disassembly


Recommended Posts

This is a mini-me version of the  Benelli M4 "flexible ring" that retains the receiver  end of the action spring. Benelli fabrications have a number of examples of simple open "C-clip" styled rings to retain parts; the magazine cap retaining external spring is such an example.

Almost a decade ago (2013), SD and I offered a number of alternative solutions to remove / install said C-clip;  not easy.

For the flexible ring removal some alternatives are a fine tipped hook tool to slip under the ring and lift it out, in combination with external snap ring pliers, fine split ring pliers or some other fabrication.

Just tinker with a small tool under the clip and get-it-done. Report back.
