How do you replace the recoil spring?


Recommended Posts

Depends on what Benelli you have and how old it is.


In general, take the nut off, take the old spring out, put the new spring in. That's it.


On my 1991 H&K SBE, I had to heat the original tube nut up and unscrew it with a vise grips. I ruined the nut getting it out, but no big deal.


I ordered a new tube nut from Brownells and it arrived as a hex head nut, 17mm I think.


From that day on, I could remove it and clean anytime. I do it once or twice a year now.


While I know about the SBE, I'm not sure about Monte's though - you may still need to heat the nut up to break the locktite. I had a 2003 Legacy and I recall it did not have a hex tube nut, but I may be wrong.
