Ok I just want to make sure I have this right, this is different than other shotguns I've shot. I have read the Benelli manual.
So if the hammer is not cocked, I have to pull the charging handle in order to load the magazine. Now once the magazine is loaded I have to push that little button under the receiver, and pull the charing handle. It's odd that you have to cock the gun twice in order to get a round in the chamber.
Or I could manuall place a round in the chamber then load the magazine, therefore only needing to cock it once?
Now when the bolt lock opens after the last round, I assume I can't load shells with the chamber open (i can't when I tested it without firing)
Also what's the easiset way to lock the chamber back? And I should never slam the bolt closed on an empty chamber right?
O yea and when I load shells it's difficult to get them into the magazine, and it pinches my finger. Is this normal?
If you gun is brand new, the spring might be a little stiff. Once you have loaded and unloaded your gun several times the spring will not be so stiff.
