    Sorta related, but are the Benellis that we get in Canada direct from Italy or are they from the states?

    My money is still on the Beretta with a Remington versamax as a close second.
    My youngest daughter had the same issue when trying to fire from the hip. She was not holding it firmly enough and the gun was moving back while the bolt was unlocking and then moving back within the moving gun. Thus the relative motion of the gun and the bolt was insufficient to cycle. (like limp wristing a 1911)
    Once she understood that she seeded to hold the firearm firmly the problem went away.

    Your friend may need to hold the gun tighter to the shoulder.

    OR perhaps you friend actually has different black Benelli, an M2 which is Inertia Driven.

    That's what Rem 11-87's were designed to do. Whole thing is mostly about your budget though.

    Yeah, the old long recoil one- I understand that to shoot target loads in a magnum Auto 5 you should swap out the recoil spring and bushings with a set for the Light Twelve.

    I shoot 1oz challengers in the A5 with the inertia system
