Benelli m2 folding brass over on cartridge hull

Postby daffy... » Mon Oct 01, 2012 10:55 pm

anyone had problems w there m2 folding the brass over on their shot shell hulls? I'm using Kent's. it fits my budget n patterns very well out of my gun so I don't wanna change that. It's progressively getting worse n I don't want it to start jamming (which it has before) because of this

Where iis it folding over the brass (steel on Kent hulls)? A picture would be worth a thousand words if you can post it. Mine leaves the metal in perfect shape. Much better than my hunting partner's Escort or my 1187.

Does the displaced metal show up as soon as the round has been chambered or only after being fired. If it does it on chambering the round it may be a sharp edge on the chamber mouth. Try running a new round through the action from magazine to chamber manually without firing and see if it does it. Also check a round that has just been fed back into the action from the magazine.

I agree with the guy above, I would bet it happens when the shell is loaded not when it's fired. On the inertia guns that guide bar on the inside can have a burr and could possibly create that.
How's my spelling WTN10

It's when being chambered. Those are all unfired rounds

Figure out where the damage is being done in relation to position in the chamber. There is probably a sharp edge or burr that is catching on the edge of the metal and pulling it back. After firing it is probably flattened with the chamber pressure. Be careful when feeling for the burr in the chamber or you could cut your finger badly. I found that out the hard way on my 1187 rail.

Have you searched or posted your question in the ShotgunWorld Forum? Then seem to have good discussions on unique issues like this.

I take it you've put some good use on your M2 (meaning its not a new gun, and is an issue that is relatively recent?)
