    Well nothing is so certain as change,,,,,and the best laid plans...

    Turns out right here out in the sticks unbeknown to me, is a gunsmith, but not just a gunsmith, but a guy that was raised by a gunsmith father, spent time as a ranger, then went to the navy, naturally he gravitated to seals...and had owned two 121m.

    Went last night, had a long talk about my plans...

    1. Forcing cones are pretty steep, BUT the barrel is chrome lined, so forget machining them....

    2. He had tried the C & H mercury tube in his, and changed from a gun that was 100% reliable to one that was 90% reliable...

    3. My pretty tritium sights, (I already have the ghost rings on), well he talked me out of it considering the other stuff I have added...

    4. I will add the large safety and that funny looking bolt release (GG&G Benelli Tactical Bolt Release Pad ) .

    5. We will be adding 1/2" more length to the pull, so my thumb will keep from hitting my nose every time I fire.

    So guys quit sniveling :crying: until I get a 1000 rounds through it, it will not get changed much from what you see in my original pictures. If it still shoots like I remember it, then maybe it will just stay like it is.

    The Benelli 121 series are awesome! Better made than the super 90! Don't let these young whipper-snappers tell you otherwise. Fast as Heck and reliable! Don't worry about replacement parts 'cause you won't need them. I have an 121 SL80 and a 121 M1 and they never fail.

    nice to see you're having some fun with that Benelli.

    if you intend on using it for HD... do ensure it's reliability with any additional weight you mount on the shotgun.

    enjoy and have fun!
