Any Benneli fans?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in a Benneli M1 90 shotgun. Anyone ever have a problem with jamming,cleaning, etc.? I like the feel, and its pretty lightweight. Its used and priced at $729, cant be more than 1 or 2 years old, very clean, no scratches. Is this overpriced or reasonable. Thanx for any replys

Thats very reasonable.
I have one, but have only shot a few boxes of target loads so far, so maybe to soon to tell if it has any problems with jamming, but as long as I keep it clean i doubt it will. Aren't they an awesome feeling gun?

Long Gray Line

I'm on my 3rd season shooting a model 90 and I've never, I repeat, never had a jam. I had one round not fully load on a very cold day. I've shot trap loads to 3" magnums and everything cycles. On the cleaning end, I've never had a gun that was easier to clean. The only caution I'll pass along is the need to take off the recoil pad, take off the nut you'll see (you need a deep 11mm socket) and oil up the shaft and nut where a recoil reducer can be mounted. If you're out in the rain, you might collect a little water in there. You don't need to do this very often though. I've done it once in 3 years.

Great gun, easy to clean. Now I actually clean my gun on a regular bases as it is easy. Buy it!

A couple additional thoughts for the gentleman considering a Super 90... I have shot one since '98, and have had zero problems. You will find the M1 is often copied, but never duplicated. The reliability of the gun, and the way it cycles shells is unsurpassed. As it's been stated, they are so incredibly easy to clean, you don't have an excuse not to clean it. My only advice would be to cosider a new one. For about $100 more you can own a new one out of the box.

A true Beneli tail from duck opener '02: My buddy and I were having a great ND morning in the duck boat. At one point we had multiple birds down and both of our retrievers were out doing their thing.

After some back and forth and a lot of retrieving, we pulled the dogs back into the boat. It was time to reload and get ready for the next barrage. But there was one problem, I couldn't find my M1!!

We soon concluded that it had fallen out of the boat. I was wearing chest waders, so I slithered into the waist-deep water to feel around in the mud with my feet. It didn't take long to locate the gun. As I pulled it from the water, swampy mud was literally running out of the action.

I was still standing in the water when my partner spotted a small flock working our direction. I quickly made sure the barrel was clear and proceeded to drop a couple shells into the M1. Bang bang!!! The gun still fired perfectly ender extreme conditions!!!

      I haven't done it too much to this point, still trying to find my way around. All I have done so far is go from my place at Wabanica Bay to Pitt and then took the Pitt grade 20 miles in or so.  I've also covered all of the dirt roads around there.

      I dislike posting a question here, but after fishing this lake since ice out at least once a week I'm struggling to find the Crappie. Have only caught one and it was spawned out. Checked all my favorite spring spots and found nothing. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Lots of gills and more largemouth than ever, but no crappies.

      Your lucky you got use of yours so quickly.  Mine literally didn't get used for about 12 years even though I brought it with every time I went after big fish.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .
