Accidental discharge


Recommended Posts

Obviously, this is not a common or expected occurence.

If the gun is new, call Benelli CS immediately and be prepared to ship the gun back to them.


If it's used, I would be very suspicious that someone overworked the trigger and sear to the point that they don't stay engaged when the bolt slams shut.

Never heard of a true AD with a Benelli.


Sorry, but if the gun was NIB, properly cleaned and maintained, not altered in any way, and factory ammo was used, then I suspect user error.


But only you know for sure what happened, so send the gun on in to Benelli immediately if you are quite sure the gun malfunctioned.


Please keep us informed. This is a potentially serious problem that could lead to a major recall of all Benelli products ever made.

Sounds like a design defect, not an AD....
