Cleaning a Benelli SBE 1, dumb but important question?

Postby TXDucksFan » Thu Aug 21, 2008 3:54 pm

Is cleaning an automatic basically the same as cleaning a regular pump??

I have never had an automatic until a few months ago, I have shot it a couple times and would like to crack it open, I just dont feel like messing with something that doesnt need my acute sense being able to screw stuff up!!!

Any help?? :huh:

Numrich (e-gunparts) has exploded diagrams of that gun online. Take it apart and clean it and if you have a problem, look it up. Those guns are very easy to disassemble and clean.

Your Manual gives you detailed steps to cleaning. If you have lost your manual then you need to go to the Benelli site and down load one. If you cleaned your pump than yuo will find the benelli is just as easy if not easier to break down and clean. Less moving parts than a pump.

Just because a gun CAN run dirty with no ill effects doesn't mean it should be. Granted, they don't need to be babied and cleaned after every shoot, but why not protect a $1000+ investment by taking the 5 minutes necessary to break down, clean, inspect, properly lubricate and reassemble any gun?
