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)

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
