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.

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.
