Good evening, What model of Benelli is this?

Super black eagle ducks unlimited
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Ok give me a couple of minutes to pull the manual and see if I can figure out where the issue is...be back shortly

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

While I'm looking, can you explain again what is happening exactly?

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Hi...I'm not available for a call at the moment...can you explain what happened when you were loading?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I loaded one shell in the chamber then I loaded the other two. But neither one of them will fire.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Only the first will fire
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I'm researching this now...

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Are you loading the gun with the hammer cocked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's cocked, then I put one in and close it. Then I put two more shells in the gun but they won't go up in the chamber unless I hold down the red button
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Ok, let's take it step by step...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do you mean?
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

I'm going to detail the loading instructions to make sure that we are doing it correctly

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Start with the safety catch engaged and the hammer cocked

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What is the safety catch
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

The button at the back of the trigger guard

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Did you do that step?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Ok, the red dot on the cartridge drop lever must be clearly visible

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

You should have the bolt closed and the hammer cocked. Push a cartridge into the magazine and push until it is retained by the carrier latch....then repeat until fully loaded.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it is
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Done
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

When the magazine is loaded, then place a round in the barrel

Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Release the cocking lever and the bolt will push the cartridge in to the chamber.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
First couple steps are unclear
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is the safety catch the same as the safety?
Expert:  ProShooter replied 1 year ago.

Yes, they are the same. Do you have an owners manual?
