Drop change instructions see table page

The shotgun comes with the original drop given at the factory for the various markets. If the desired level of comfort for handling and aiming is not obtained and the drop requires adjustment, use the special kit provided. The kit, which permits two additional drops to suit all markets, consists of metal stock locking plate set plus plastic drop change shim (see fig. 13).

Each unit is marked with the corresponding letter.

Before attempting any work on your Be-nelli make sure that the chamber and the magazine of your shotgun are unloaded.

See the instructions on loading and unloading on pages 23-24.

The next step is to determine if your stock is too high or too low for you.

If it is too low, then you need to raise the stock and should select the next alphabetical "adjustment". (For example if the shim says "D" move to a "C" shim and corresponding adjustment plate. If this drop is still too low then select the "B" adjustment plate, and shim required for this setting).

The contents of your shotgun box should contain: a "B" and "C" metal stock plate and plastic adjustment shim. Installed in the shotgun is a "D" metal stock plate and a plastic adjustment shim for U.S.A.

For other markets it is installed a "B" adjustment, while "A" and "C" kits are contained in the box.

1) Utilizing a Phillips screwdriver, remove the two screws from the recoil pad of the Benelli shotgun. To avoid tearing the rubber recoil pad, apply a light coat of petroleum jelly or grease to the shaft of the screwdriver.

2) Using a 13 mm deep well socket and along with a rachet and extension, remove the stock retaining nut by turning the rachet counter clockwise.

3) The stock along with the retaining nut, the lock washer, the retaining plate (with proper drop letter stamped on it), and the stock spacer will now all slide off the recoil spring tube.

4) Now you are ready to reinstall a new drop kit. Note that all the retaining plates have a larger wing on one side than the other and must be properly reinserted into the stock to fit into the wooden mold provided for them.

5) Place your selected stock shim on the recoil spring tube first, with the stamped letter facing toward the stock and the small stud facing the receiver. (This stud corresponds with a small hole in the receiver back) then follow with the stock. Turn the shotgun barrel toward the floor so that the stock will stay in place while you drop the correspondingly lettered retaining plate into the stock. (Making sure the plate fits exactly into its wooden receptor). Then place the lock washer and nut on the recoil spring tube and re-tighten it.

The recoil pad may now be aligned and screwed back into place to complete the drop change.

Remember that when you alter the stock drop of a shotgun you are actually altering the impact point of the gun as well. After changing the drop make sure that you shoot some clay targets to assure yourself that you're impact point is correct for your dimensions and style of shooting.
