Taccom - Red Neck Tactical Release Tab for Benelli M1, M2, SBE, SBE2 and M3 Shotguns
The guys at Red Neck Tactical.....some of the best shotgun people out there, have some up with a great solution for quickly finding and hitting the release tab on your shot gun. Finished in black nitride.....this part will not rust on you.
This Tab is designed to work in one of 2 ways. 1) You can just fit it under the fore end and screw your magazine tube nut down tight, or 2)you can do a small amount of fitting for a more custom installation. For the cleanest installation you will need a small file, and a sharp small blade like an Exacto or small Swiss Army knife blade. Install the Bolt release tab and mark the vertical face of the fore end where the bolt tab butts up to it. Take a sharp knife blade and cut out a slot in the fore end ( about .025 deep) that matches the tab to allow the fore end to bottom against the receiver once again. This will take all of 15 minutes and will makes it look "custom". It is not necessary in the least but it will give it the cleanest look.
The important thing to do, once installed, is to tweak the tab so that it just barely touches the bolt release button when the gun is COCKED (do this with an empty chamber only). This is easily done by bending the tab at the Z bend at the front in small increments either up or down. Now you are ready to rock. No drilling, no broken buttons, just quick, LOW PROFILE bolt closing goodness.
