Sbe2 sure cycle vs wolf recoil spring

Postby loon » Sat Nov 17, 2012 5:12 pm

I have a 8 yr old SBE2 it worked perfectly for the first 6yrs then despite thorough cleaning it started to not load the 2nd round I replaced it with the expensive stainless steel sure cycle thing from cabelas. Worked great for awhile now same thing is happening and the bolt doesn't seem to slam shut with much authority . Do I now need a wolf spring? Yes I'm cleaning it regularly ***!?!

try checking the inside of the bolt for any burrs, as well as the chamber edges. might try and replace the firing pin spring as well. had the same problem with my stoeger2000 and found a small burr inside the channel that the firing pin goes through. I also have a sbeII but have had no problems with it as of yet. if you cant replace that firing pin spring right away, try and stretch it to give it a little more tension and then try firing it and see if problem persists. if the bolt is not seating in the chamber all the way, its because its catching on something and the firing pin spring doesn't have enough tension to rotate bolt into the chamber. search for and smooth all rough edges with emery paper and test fire. hope that somewhat helps you out...can always call benelli as well. I dont think you need a new recoil spring, the bolt housing itself can seat along the rails, but if the bolt catches on something it wont properly seat in the chamber.

his problem is not with firing it is with cycling,if all u shoot is heavy hi brass loads then put a wolf 25% stiffer recoil spring and magazine spring in it.i guess the wolf spring will work in the sure cycle tube not sure though.i would have tried the wolff spring first before the hi dollar sure cycle though.the springs are cheap and worth the effort.

I agree, dont do anything with the firing pin spring, yes a wolff spring will fit the sure cycle tube, and if possible use the orginal plunger that came with your benelli not the sure cycle plunger, the benelli plunger is a much better design,,, get the wolff spring for 12 bucks that will probably help you out.

Replace your carrier, that fix my problem and made sure you have the SRM spring for duck load.

I don't have any original parts/plunger so I hope I can use the sure cycle and just do the spring. Is the magazine spring that important ? I know the recoil spring is important

Daffy, did your problem get fixed? No more mangled brass?

Definitely go with the Wolff spring, only $12 and will most likely solve your situation. For either Benelli M2/SBE2, if you constantly shoot magnum loads for waterfowl the 25%+ spring is the best thing you can do for your gun. Mag spring isn't as crucial in the M2 as it may be in the SBE2.

QUESTION:

How often have you taken apart and completly cleaned out your recoil spring tube (part # 37) ?

You should be doing that at least once a year.

Agree on cleaning out the tube... had cycling issue and esseitialy a single shot SBE2... when dissasembled I had cat tail reeds all through the gun, including the tube. This year no issues, but waterfowlhunter sent me the wolf spring which I will put in just to be sure.
Still stumblin through the marsh, still griping about the work and effort, still looking forward to next trip out...
