New benelli peeling in receiver

Postby fadetoblack188 » Tue Feb 18, 2014 5:56 pm

Brand new sbe 2 never been fired. Notice there is like a clear film peeling off inside the receiver. Is this normal? Some sort of factory coating? Has anyone else seen this

Yeah mine did the same thing. I would just rub as much as I could off every time I cleaned it. Never caused me any issues.

When guns get dipped in camo the company then sprays a clear coat over the camo film to protect it, the peeling you see is probably over spray from the clearcoat enjoy your new gun.

you can break it in without firing a shot and your shoulder will thank you, take the bolt apart, excess the inertia spring and compress it in a vise over night, I did this to two of my benelli's, have not had a problem, that is the only thing that firing the heavy loads does, the rails will get broken in with time no matter what you are shooting.

I never have started off shooting 3.5" out of them. I have always gotten new benellis during the summer so I just go bust some clays with cheapo target loads.

Not quite sure why shooting 3.5" matters as the bolt has to open the same amount regardless.

It softens/sets the spring in the bolt just like clamping it in a vise for awhile Then the spring has taken a set from heavier loads, the lighter loads will function with less problems
