Benelli M2 AutoLoad Lifter

Recommended Posts

I received my replacement part today.  It was post marked as J Kenny had said so it was probably lost by the USPS.

By golly I MIGHT have solved it.

 

Nope.  What I fixed was an issue, gun's working a lot smoother now. But sadly it wasn't the problem. :(

Eek!  I’d had about 150 rounds through mine, then it started randomly putting 2 on the lifter, thereby jamming it up.  Back to my TTI lifter until they figure things out a bit more. (Yes, I have a strong dog ear spring, newer mag tube spring, and a smooth shell latch).

I ran 100+ rounds through it yesterday, averaged one malfunction every other tube full. Nose high, nose low, lifter hang ups...  not happy.

Very painfull to install after bending but prevent some loading issues. ;)

I guess I need to try that?  Because the silence from the manufacturer is rather loud.

I think the bending solution can proove the spring is too weak and need a bigger coil to work properly.

Pardon my ignorance, but, what does this lifter modification do compared to the stock one?  I've got a M3000 that was pretty well tricked out by MOA a few years ago so it presently has whatever they did back then.

 Allows you to load the SG when bolt is locked to rear. Once you start feeding the tube, it'll automatically load one in the chamber for you. Biggest draw is it prevents Port loading. An alternative option to the Browning A5.

It saves tons of time port loaded, 1, maybe 2 seconds. Of course wasting wasting many many times that, having to clear multiple malfunctions per stage.....   😣

I have the MOA one on my Stoeger M3K, and used it all season.  LOVE IT.  Took a little time to break it in, and since then it's been perfect.

Any updates from anyone who has had one for a little while now?

 

lol, that's why I keep checking back in, hoping for some revelation. 

I'm sure I'll get an answer to me emails any week now. ;)

I took mine out after it would randomly let an additional shell out on my lifter.  Went back to my TTI extended lifter and haven’t had an issue

For those having issues with the J Kenny lifters, I discovered that Hayes Custom Guns actually sells them here state side. Maybe they can help out. 
 

PS- I have no affiliation with them.

Uh oh. Last round every time. Weak mag tube spring probably. 

No experience with the J Kenny one, but my MOA one, the manufacturer said that I needed an extra strong (longer) spring for it to work properly.  Try a new spring first, see how that works before you do anything else.

Yes, you need a stronger or just a little longer spring to increase preload for the last shell.

Funny that the common malfunction is the only one I'm not having. 

Okay, maybe it isn't funny.

I have a match coming up so I put the AccuGuide lifter back in. I don’t 100% trust the auto lifter yet. I’ll re-visit it at a later date.

Used the MOA lifter all season without issue on a M2. Took a small break in period but was good to go after a few hundred rounds.

Tell your friends over at MOA to make more. I even asked them if I could send my trigger group in. No response..
