M 1 - Benelli Problem


Chapo

Recommended Posts

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)

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.

      Fish cleaning shack has been pretty quiet at pike bay resort last 2 days. Been on several spots on big bay with little success.  Family wants to lose their $$ at casino today.  Hopefully get out later today. Good luck and keep posting.

      Blame you?  You needed it there and I knew you couldn’t change your, um, *stretch?* time.
    • smurfy
      🤣🤔 I can't believe you didn't try blaming me.   It's been a while since I stopped there... to check the landing  🤭
    • Wanderer
      I was wondering how long it would take you to notice - and blame me!  It wasn’t there the weekend before the 4th I know!  We took my buddies duck boat with a surface drive motor out for the grand tour.   I looked for it and thought DANG Smurf’s gonna be pizzed!   Then I found you something real nice on the interweb you might be interested in.
