Rooster Man Posted December 4, 2007 Share Posted December 4, 2007 Nobody loves the Benelli more than this 60 year old shooter. Have owned over a dozen Benelli, Baretta and Franchi shotguns in the past 20 years. Just a word of warning to other owners of the sweet shooting Montefeltro Light 20: On the positive side it's the WORLD'S sweetest pointing best balanced and most durable semi auto. I shoot very well with it and once owned 20 guns, now own JUST the Monty Light 20. That being said, WARNING to hunters: Regardless of what owners manual says, the gun will NOT reliably or consistently cycle & chamber the 7/8 ounce load. Hunting rabbits in southeast Michigan yesterday i jumped a 5 pound wall hanging trophy cottontail, got so flustered i muffed the first shot. Put the bead on him at 20 yards, pulled trigger, nothing, saw in periphery the yellow fired hull sticking straight out from receiver, one trophy rabbit gone. Although i've shot skeet with this gun and it OFTEN cycles the low brass promo loads it WON'T do it consistently, nor will any other auto, and anybody who tells you different has a better Monty than mine. For $1000 it should cycle ANYTHING. Not griping, just letting others know, don't hunt with anything except 1 ounce 2 3/4 dram shells. DJ Dan the Rooster Man, Flint Mi.
