    My son inherited my SBE2 when I got my SBE3. Seems after years of cleaning , the holes in the receiver have worn to allow the pin to just fall out, causing him to loose it. I bought him a new pin, is there a way to get a tighter fit again? Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Ok, figured it out, the "D-clip" on the trigger housing is missing, probably from pushing it through the wrong direction. Part ordered lol.

    Sounds like you solved it.
    The standard practice to tighten up loose, press fit pins is to lay them on the flat part of a heavy vise and lightly peen them with a hammer.

    Is the D-clip still $6+-?

    I lost one 25 years ago, bought two, haven't lost one since...

    11.00 sounds about right for one. Expensive part for so little of it

    Has anyone had to replace the little O ring that goes around head of pin that retains fireing pin. Cleaning my M2 a few weeks ago noticed it had cracked when getting ready to reassemble. Couldn't find it separate thru Midway or Brownells. Had to buy whole pin with o ring included as I couldn,t find an o ring that particular size. I resume it just keeps enough tension on pin to keep it from walking out. Same setup in SBE,s and Montrefelto,s.

    Never had to replace one. Could a person use a regular automotive/farm equipment type o-ring? Can't see any reason it wouldnt work just fine.

    I don,t see why not but I couldn,t find that size anywhere. Don,t know if o rings come in metric sizes but its not sized to American standards.

    Maybe try Benelli directly......a couple of those can't be too pricey.
