M 1 - Benelli Problem

5 posts in this topic

I recently acquired a used M1, the problem I am having is when I unload the round from the barrel by hand the next round coming up from the magazine only comes out about 3/4 of the way. I then am able with little effort get the magazine round to pop out. The gun has no problems with loading when the gun is fired. Any thoughts? Thanks?

Have you asked this question on the Benelli website forum? I'm sure the guys on that forum could tell you right away what to start looking for. I'm pretty new member on that forum and have read posts about every problem imaginable and those guys seem to know the answers. Not sure if I can post the link here or not but it's a pretty easy site to get started on.

I've got a nova that does that with reload 2 3/4 in shells. Its like it gets jammed going into the barrel. It never does it with store bought loads, you might want to try some different shells. For the money, I didn't think that benelli would be that finicky, but it is.

When you unload by hand you need to hit the red button by the trigger gaurd first. This drops the shell from the mag. You can then eject the shell from the chamber by hand. I think it works this way so you can eject the shell from the chamber and replace it with anothe load without a shell from the mag. dropping in.

Jerk bait is right, benelli has a trick to unloading it. It has a magazine shut off so, like he said, you can pop in a new load without sending them through the mag. I misread and thought you were having trouble while shooting, not unloading.

I believe that you can unload it without using the bolt. Turn your gun upside down and run your finger inside the reciever towards the magazine (I think it will be on the left side as you look down at the gun), if I am right, there should be a little tab that you push in and the shell will come out of the magazine. (The tab is just in front of the magazine, sometimes you have to push the shell in the magazine in a little farther to feel the tab, its right at the opening of the magazine)

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
