      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Benelli won't cycle shell

Recommended Posts

I have a Benelli SBE, a few years old. When shooting 1 1/8 loads it lots of times doesn't put the next shell in chamber. See pics. What should I start with? The second pic shows where the position of the bolt after shot and where the next shell is. The first pic shows where the bolt ends up when there isn't a shell in the mag. I've cleaned many times and took the spring out of the stock and cleaned there too.

Did you take the recoil spring out of the butt of the gun? I had to replace it in my Montefeltro and now it works great. It was full of gunk and rust and the spring had gotten pretty weak.

I did take the spring out of the stock and clean. No rust, just some gunk.

It looks like you have put a few shells through the gun. I wonder if your ejector is worn and hanging up a little. Still kicking out the case but maybe a little late and the next shell is coming up causing a jam? confused

How are you cleaning the action, with a rag? What kind of oil do you put on the slides? I break my sbe down and use an air compressor on everything and couple drops of rem oil on each slide. Takes a couple minutes. Ive had mine for about 7 years now. I shoot a lot too never had s problem

I have shot this gun a lot. But the first pic shows with no shell in mag, the bolt didn't go back far enough even w/o trying to put in a new shell in.

For cleaning I always break down, wipe everything and 1 drop Benelli oil that is recommended for the gun, on each side.

I went to see Stu, located at Del Tone in St. Cloud. He said the spring in the stock was too strong. I bought a new one and installed myself. Shot a round of trap with 1 oz and it cycled every time.

Now that I think back on it, I had Laib's work on the gun about 6 years ago when it wouldn't lock up in cold weather. He installed a stronger spring that doesn't like trap loads. Problem solved, I hope!

Exactly, I knew heavy loads cycled fine, but wasn't going to shoot those for sporting clays.

I bought a cheap semi auto shot gun a few months ago. It would fire the first shot and not cycle the shells.

My cure... $0.59 rubber o ring from menards.

Glad you found your cure.

    • My brother and his friend shot two birds yesterday in Wisconsin in the snow.   I will be leaving for SD next week Wednesday.   Local city birds were out and about with some strutting just before our big snow storm here, haven't seen them since. 
    • MN DNR regulations only say the largest size to use is #4.   So #9 should be legal.   From what I have read on the turkey forums I follow where lots of guys pattern test shells, the TSS loads in #7 do not perform as well as the previously best loads (for 20 gauge) which is Federal Heavyweight #7.  Unfortunately Federal stopped making the HW shells when they switched to TSS.   The few guys who have found TSS in stock in #9 though are reporting very impressive patterns though, far superior to TSS #7.  
    • Enough of the suspsense AS. We need the story!
    • I also missed!  Thinking late may be the key to success.  The early bird gets the worm, but I get the bird:-). I’ll PM... hopefully.
    • I wont get out till Sat morn we shall see how it goes
    • Yikes! I think I see a gobbler track in the mud right before that blood trail starts. Hope everything turned out positive. Looking forward to pics.
    • I thought I would add some pictures. This is a 2013 frame from CW welding I believe. Yours might be a little different if it is from a different frame company. I started by blocking the house up and I removed the tire. The first time I ever did this their was almost no grease on the pivot at all. I bought this frame from a salvage auction after the house burned down. I am not sure if they did not grease it enough the first time or the grease got hot and ran out when the house burned down. This time when I took it off plenty of grease was still on the pivot and I could have got by another year without greasing it.   You can see the bolt you need to remove on the outside of the pivot.  Then cut the zip tie off to pull out the extra wire.  The whole arm will then slide off if you leave slack in the cables. I put a floor jack under the hub to make it easier. Then clean everything up and grease it.
    • Beautiful bird there Wallydog. Congrats
