SBE3- Sluggish Action


Recommended Posts

I recently bought a new sbe3 within the last two weeks.  So far no issues with cycling.  The one issue I am noticing is that when i lock back the action to load in the first shell, it is extremely sluggish while springing forward.  I have always shot gas operated guns, so I am used to it springing forward with significant force.  To me, it seems extremely slow compared to normal.  Any advice or help is appreciated.

The best way to evaluate this for some, would b e to directly compare it to another 20 Gauge SBE 3.  In some/most Benelli/Franchi line the recoil spring profile would be different.  


I’ve noticed that specific shells may make a difference too.
