Benelli M1 12 GA. Recoil, reliability and loose shoulder


Recommended Posts

Hi people, this is my first post!

I use shotguns for practical shooting, and after many years with a Remington 1100 I decided to move to a brand new Benelli M1 Super 90.

This is not my first Benelli M1, I own another for self defense, the "entry gun" and is my best gun of all!


I really love Benelli, lighter, faster, this shotgun has all I want, except one detail that I can't understand in this brand new M1:

Using loads of 28 grams I need to "loose" my shoulder to avoid FTF's. If I hold and put my shoulder more firmly after 4 or 5 rounds I have an FTF.

Testing it with heavier loads the problem disappears, but with my older M1 with a shorter barrel (the Entry gun) I never had this problem even using lighter loads than this.

Anybody have experience with this kind of details?

Should I loose my shoulder to reach enough reliability?

Thank you for your help.
