How to tighten new spring cap


Recommended Posts

Does this quote from the Benelli owners manual make since to anyone else?

 

"WARNING:use enough force when screwing on the cap to to overcome the contrast of the spring stopping the barrel, until the cap is fully against the cylinder guide pin". End of quote

 

The key word that is confusing to me is "over come the contrast". My question is does this mean tighten the spring until you hear the wood fibers popping in your forearm? Can you over tighten the spring?

 

It would be nice if Benelli would come up with a more precise tool similar to a torque wrench or something along those lines that would give us an exact tension setting for a more uniform and detailed assembly when tightening the barrel down since the guns are marketed as a take down rifle to travel.

Yup, basically it just means "Tighten it until it stops" no need to torque it. Aint it lovely to know that the Italians have their best Ph.D's in the company working on the english translation? I personally use a 1/4" punch to tighten. I don't like the idea of using the forend either.
