Before you send it back, verify that your bolt rails, lugs and extractor are properly lubricated :) .

clean and oil everything..use Break Free CLP....and use some more 3 inch rounds to beat it into submission a tad :-) if it still hangs up and jams then i'd call customer service to see what they can do..make sure there is oil in the chamber and on the shell latch too to see if it is feeding correctly....

"hey i just got an m2 field "

Doesn't the manual say shoot some heavier loads first - after throughly cleaning the gun.

here we go again.

I might add it is a hunting gun designed to shoot heavier loads not 7/8 trap loads

Trap loads ARE heavy loads. They are usually max dram and 1 1/4 oz shot. If your gun doesn't shoot trap loads out of the box something is wrong with the gun.

100% of all trap shooters I know shoot 1 1/8 3 dram or less which I think is the recommended load for all benelli autos.

From Your manual Dude

 

"due to precision machine tolerances

on your shotgun, some breaking-in

period may be required before your new gun

works perfectly with light target loads. If you

experience any initial functioning problems,

we recommended firing three or four boxes

of standard hunting loads to allow for this break in period'

 

Typical trap loads from Remington.

Index No. Gauge Shell Length Powder Dr. Eq. Velocity (fps) Oz. of Shot Shot Sizes

Gun Club™ Target Loads

DRAM FPS load

GC121 12 2 3/4" 2 3/4 1185 1 7½, 8

GC12L 12 2 3/4" 2 3/4 1145 1 1/8 7½, 8, 9

GC12 12 2 3/4" 3 1200 1 1/8 7½, 8

GC20 20 2 3/4" 2 1/2 1200 7/8 7½, 8, 9

Please notice most are 2.3/4 dram

Remington does not list dram for Hunting Loads.

Fiochii Hunting loads for 12 g are 3.1/4 to 3 3/4 at 1300 plus FPS

So No! target loads are not the same as Game loads.

 

What i have learned form Some good people on this site is the following:

1. Save your money

2. Buy a Benelli

3. Bring the gun home and throughly strip and clean it and use high quality Lube (militec is amazing)

4. Pump some heavy loads through it (100 rounds) Hard to do if you are impatient ant want to get to the range.

5. Enjoy a fine smooth functioning gun for a long time.

 

When I broke in all my benellis I shot the heaviest game loads I could fine usually 100 rounds cleane

 

 

 

Any reason you are using a field gun to shoot trap.?
