  1. Already have a post for this -SBE concern/ problem, decided to post it here again . got my SBE just around first week of December and it seems its working okay, although it doesnt 100% cycle on the 2 3/4 drams , but fine with the 3 drams. replaced the recoil spring and now will shoot everything. When I depressed the carrier activator ( silver tab) and pull back the bolt, the bolt locks up at the rear, push the bolt release tab, the bolt moves forward. which I believed is normal. However, even without depressing the silver tab and or pulling the trigger, when pulling the bolt back to rear the bolt get stuck at the rear and the carrier is in up or raised position. I have to manually push the carrier down via the ejection port to release or let the bolt go forward because even the bolt release tab wont release the bolt from the rear. It doesnt happen while shooting, only doing this when I maually cycle the action without any ammo/ shells.. Contacted Benelli about it, what I got are different answers. lol, one Rep says its normal, weired I guess. The only time the bolt stays at the rear or the action will stay open is when you depressed the silver tab and pull back the bolt to the rear, or when the gun is running empty. Correct me if I'M wrong. Hoping to hear from you Gents
  2. Steve, At what distance you zeroed your scope, just got the scope a day ago, was scanning all the papers/ info manuals from the manufacturer, and base on their BDC the scope zeroed at 100yrds/ meters.
  3. I was on the very nice list that I'm getting the Swarvoz8i 1-8, its on the mail as we speak. with regards to mount, although its backordered ( 2-3 weeks) I will go with the ADM H mount, found the Larue 135 in one of the dealers, but price up here North is not affordable.
  4. I had the chance to shoot the gun again the other day, now the bolt occassionally get stacked at the rear, wont go back to close. originally my problem was when cycling the bolt manually ( unloaded) the bolt or action stays open and the carrier is in the up position, I have to push down the carrier manually by the ejection port to bring the bolt forward. this happens when just cycling the action.
  5. Merry Christmas if i cycle the action without full force ( unloaded gun)the carrier occasionally stays up, i just push it down and the action / bolt will close by itself. This doesnt do when I'm shooting or cycling the action with gusto. The SBE hasnt seen more than 100 rnds, basically new. , thanks
  6. Hows the ADM Recon H mount,
  7. Hi as the title says, is it bad idea?, dont care of the looks, but more on stability. I am using right now a 1.50" height mount, and find it a little uncomfortable especially on the back on my neck, I found a riser made by Valada at .250" and that would make a total of 1.750" which I would think ideal for me. Larue and ADM makes 1.93", not sure if it might be too high too. any pros and cons when using a higher mount when shooting prone. Used to have a Eotech G33 magnifer which has a 1.750" centerline height, and find it very good for my shooting positioning. . Even my T1 on a Larue 660 mount has centerline of 1.64" is not that bad at all . However the iron sights which is 1.40" is not my ideal height. Thanks
  8. Oh well, I cant help it but placed my order for the Swarvo Z8i 1-8 BRT, pretty close too of going to VX6, but have have second thoughts especially here up North we are in the Mercy of the Distributor, we dont have easy access to a quick customer service here. and its not cheap either if I want to upgrade or change something. will just make sure mommy wont see the invoice. lol, wish me luck.
  9. I was hoping you gonna say some cons lol, I will get in touch with the dealer this Friday, crossing my fingers that the buyer of my Razor wont back out, he promised to pick up this Thursday, what can you say gents about the VX6 1-6 CDS Firedot BDC Multigun, i"M not comparing it with the Swarvo in any way, but just your opinions of the scope. The price is very tempting. Most of the feedbacks I reads is the illumination is a hit and miss.
  10. Any updated info on this scope, Actual experience in the range. pretty close in pulling the trigger on this one,
  11. I with the price difference between the Swaro 1-6 and Leupold VR6 MultiGun 1-6x24 CDS Firedot BDC, not sure now if will go ahead with the Swarvo. No experience between the 2 scopes and haven't even seen either one. The only thing thats an issue for my Razor is its weight. Maybe somebody can share their actual experience.
  12. Hi If I will be nice , Santa would bring me a Swarvo 1-6 this Christmas ( on sale at $1800), so its a good time to start doing some inquiries about Mounts and Throw Levers. Right now I have the Bobro extended mount on my Razor, happy with it but wish I could have something that let the center of the scope seat a little bit higher, not sure if its a good idea though. Base on Bobro specs, the center height is around 1.50", most common height for this type of mount, Would be interested if a company make somewhere around 1.75". . Any recommendation of throw levers and mounts, QD mounts necessary? thanks
  13. Thanks Paul, so I guess the SA gas block will fit either the KMR Alpha ( 10oz)1.30 ID same as Solo or the Geissele MK4 although 4oz.heavier(15oz), still haven't what forearm to get.
  14. Stealthy Blagga In Restrictive and or Bleed Off mode setting, where there any significant difference on recoil and muzzle rise compared to a full open (4 1/2 turns) like standard gas block, me too is using an 18" rifle gas system, just wondering if the SA GB helps on the recoil/ muzzle rise especially its a rifle gas... a lot of opinions on these one, some feel its not necessary to have a Adjustable Gas Block on rifles gas. thanks
  15. May I ask what Forearm did you paired with the SA GB, I searching for a Hanguard that is compatible with the SA, on my list are BCM KMR Alpha with 1.30" I. D. Or the Geissele MK4 with 1.35" ID
  16. Thanks for the time to comment, with regards to the KMR Alpha is it true that it will heat up quickly than the SMR MK4 Condidering its has a narrower profile?Base on your comments the SMR is a better choice? Btw its for action type of shooting. Ipsc / 3 gun Happy Thanks Giving Gentlemen ?
  17. Hi I need a 15" Forearm for 18" rifle lenght bbl. already have a Superlative Adj Gas Block on hand,now I need to decide either the Geiselle Mk4 or the BCM KMR Alpha. One of my concern with the KMR is that the Sup GB wont fit into the KMR and want to use the Sup Gas Block, otherwise will have to buy the BCM LP GB which is not adjustable. My concern With theGeissele MK 4 is the weight 15oz with the hardware, and not sure if my Superlative GB will fit too, although it comes with its own GB , btw the KMR is around 10oz with hardware. I'm limited to these 2 Forearms since its the ones on sale up North. SOS
  18. Hi Need your opinion and inputs on this forearm, just a little concern on how it attaches to the bbl nut. Thanks
  19. Which bbl do you have, Match or the Ultra Match?
  20. Just a follow up, which of the gas lenght would benefit from the SA the most 18" Intermediate or the Rifle, Will the Bleed Off setting reduces recoil or muzzle rise?
  21. Hi, just purchased the SA gas block, buying without fully understanding the concept, lol, so running the SA GB with the 4.5 opening or turns is the same as a nornal gas block?, and turning donw/ inside is the same as a restrictive GB. last question, when will the SA Bleed Off is beneficial, I dont run a can, If my objective is to minimize recoil and muzzle rise, whats the best setting . planning to install the SA GB to a 18" rifle or 18" intermediate> thanks
  22. Thanks, and btw, do I need a FFL to buy a bbl 18" though,
  23. Thanks Pat, so The Noveske 18" SpR intermediate is a better choice, not a lot of options here
  24. Hi, The plan is to replace my current Noveske CHF 14.5" bbl to Rainier Arms bbl ( its the only bbl availiable here up North and affordable, Noveske SPR 18" is back ordered and around $700,00). My choices are Rainier Arms Match 18" 223 Wylde, SPR Contour and Rifle Gas Rainier Ultra Match 18" 223 Wylde , Intermediate Rainier Ultra Match 18" 223 wylde Fluted Rifled gas Some Concerns: I currently using the Vltor A5 system with 6.0oz buffer, on my lower, workks great on my mid 14.5bbl, Will Intermediate and Rifle cycle 100% ?, and do I need an adjustable gas block for the Rifle? Accuracy potential of the Rainier bbls? Your experience and feedback is highly appreciated.
