  1. Hearing this reminds me not to buy another. I didn't have the patience for it and in the factory configuration was less fun to shoot than my pump guns IMHO.
  2. I let mine go for a song. I wanted to like it, but it wasn't reliable but with anything less than "stout" loads and in stock configuration it was too light to enjoy shooting. The saga of mine is posted on here. I think I spent over @$1k on it and I was happy to trade it for a basic PSA AR straight across. Do find myself lusting after a VEPR.
  3. Here in NC they are $7.97. I've tried several different brands and my XN only likes the AA or STS to run reliably. I've got factory spring, Tooth and Nail trigger group, and gas piston (for 922R). All have been fitted as well as the mags by my builder. I'm always experimenting with other cheaper loads to try and find something cheaper that will run reliably, but no luck so far. I bought mine used and have put @200 through it, so maybe it isn't even broken in yet. May try the reduced recoil spring.
  4. Okay, my guy fitted/adjusted the hammer and as long as I use AA or the like (1 1/4oz) it runs like a champ. Now I think I need a stock weight. One of my least favorite guns to shoot. Has anyone tried a recoil reducing stock on one of these?
  5. So is that caused by soft aluminum shells or a magazine feed lip issue? Is there any way to tell by looking at it if it has a low power spring? Thanks, Greg
  6. Ok, picked it up and tried several different loads. 1315 and 1350 birdshot seemed to fail to eject about every 3 or 4th round in the 5 and 10 round mag. 15 round of Remington sluggers ran fine. Even ran 5 rounds of reduced recoil buckshot. Seems like the problem is either a spent empty not extracting and/or a simultaneous double feed. I was told by previous owner that it had a reduced power recoil spring, but I'm thinking that it may not and that may be the problem. Could it be a bolt/ejector issue? It had a magpull BAD Lever on it, I've removed it to see if that helps. Also, once, when
  7. Congrats. So, I gotta ask, what's the difference between the Match and the XN? Thanks, GregB
  8. Well, after giving it another go with Winchester AA and some 1350 dove loads, It looks like the hammer isn't resetting/failing to feed next round. I'm sending it back to the builder and he's going to take another look. I appreciate all the advice on here. I hope to be able to pick it up at the Asheville Gun Show the weekend of October 10-11. Definitely a learning experience. Stay tuned. Is "kool aid" the Benelli? GregB
