urnhart Posted December 11, 2007 Share Posted December 11, 2007 I have owned a Benelli R1 30-06 for 2.5 years. Last year just before hunting season while cleaning the gun I noticed a coupling was broke in the gas exchanger attached to the barrel I will attach pics. The gun went back and Benelli fixed the gun quickly but I was unable to use it that hunting season. This year I used the gun and took a buck with it but when cleaning it I noticed the same part was broke as before. What is causing this, the cost of resighting this gun doesnt make me happy but the gun is worthless to me if it keeps breaking! Has any one else had this problem? Also the wood easily soaked up the rain water raising the grains. What can be done to prevent this? and fix it? I expect more from a gun this expensive, I am starting to understand why all the great northeastern hunters use the remington 7600.
