shell catcher

6 posts in this topic

Looking for some input on a location to get a shell catcher for a benelli montefeltro. I have been shooting some trap and the shells are hitting the shooter next to me. Is there any off brands or do I have to go straight to benelli?

Thanks for any help.

T&S industries makes one. But they have to modify your bolt handle, you actually have to send it in to them, bummer. Birchwood casey makes one that I have seen used on the range. Its metal and is a universal fit. Only downside is the double sided sticky tape that it uses. I don't know how it will effect the finish on the gun. Those are the only two that I could find. Good luck.

96 thanks for the info. Don't want to hurt the finish I will have to call benelli direct and see if another brand will do.

Once again thanks.

A buddy of mine just used to put a rubber band infront of the handle on the receiver and it worked to keep his hulls from hitting the ground. It would catch the front edge of the hull and keep it from kicking out of the gun

Picks, I have seen this used before. It does work until the rubber band breaks. I'm not sure if it would work on all guns. If the bold is tight to the reciever, I think the montefeltro is pretty tight, but might be worth a shot. Also, use a pretty heavy rubber band, like the kind you find around brocolli at the supermarket. Problem is, then you usually have to eat the brocolli.

Use a brocoli or asparagus rubber band. Cheap and they work.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
