you ever had this happen. these are rounds that are catching a sharp edge entering the chamber. i lightly filed down the sharp spot cus the idea of altering the chamber made me really uncomfortable. im wondering if theres anyone else with many miles on there m2/sbe2 with this problem


Can't say that I've had the issue. Does the gun still chamber or cycle? How many rounds or years have you put through it? I've put my gun through 3 waterfowl season and a month shy of 3 total years....lots of 3" rounds, sporting clays etc etc. I would estimate several thousand rounds, perhaps 5k? Probably more? Honestly I don't know.

I'd definitely say I've put my M2 through the wringer a time or two, nothing report for issues. I would contact Benelli.

What does the chamber look like (the grooves where the bolt and barrel extension contact and lock-up)? Are there noticeable sharp edges? Maybe take pictures and include those in an email to Benelli. :hi:

What are you doing with those ugly gray sumbitches? The only worse shell I ever came across were Winchester Experts, kryptonite to my gun. At least the Clark Kents cycled ok.

My gun really likes Federal Blue Box Premiums. They are the Superman shells.

just where the brass seats in the chamber itself is sharp. it will "benelli click" probably every 75th round becuase of that. i have 5 season on mine. two of which very hardcore, serious hikes over maines rock coast, submerged in mud, floated across salt water eddies. id say i shoot a case and change in ammo a season. then probably half, 3/4 case in clays during the off season. i do however clean it almost everytime i use it, its just to easy. one pin and the bolt is tool free

MAN.....that wolff XP magazine spring ain't no joke! :lol3: my hands were cramping up, i had one spring explosion in my living room, if there was a centimeter of space it would blow out the side,and now i feel like i have arthritis (at 25 y/o)....but i got it after a little practice :beer:

recoil spring was a piece of cake. I cycled some dove and pigeon loads without a problem. Even tried it from the hip, and it cycled fine.

thanks for the help guys, hopefully this fixes the problems.

The click is normal if you bump it on the ground. There is not enough force to re-close the bolt when that happens. If you are not bumping it on the ground then it sounds like you are easing the bolt forward. On a benelli, always let the bolt slam or use the slide lock and press the bolt release button when loading a round. As for the stove pipe jams, it sounds like you may have something in the recoil spring tube. While the gun is disassembled use a punch or a nail to compress the recoil spring enough to spray solvent into the tube and allow any foreign matter to drain out, use the whole can if needed. Hold it open long enough to dry and spray a couple of small squirts of oil in(not much).
See if that works before spending the money on replacement springs. Hope this helps

I clean my recoil spring tube a LOT. Probably every other cleaning, it all gets broken down completely.

thanks for the advice though. It has been perfect for 3 trips so far.

That seems like a lot of work! Taking the recoil spring assembly is pretty simple, but I certainly wouldn't want to do it every other cleaning. I normally take mine apart twice a year. Once after waterfowl season and then again after the "off-season" shooting season before waterfowl season begins again.

Mine comes apart every cleaning. Personal preference.

TROB... You may want to also check in the receiver across from the bolt release lever... If you can see a wron spot n there and can feel a little diviot there you can take the bolt release out and clip one coil and then 1/4 coil after that until its not jamming the brass against that side.... That's what the benelli guy walked me though :-)
