Trigger on Benelli Super Black Eagle hammer not releasing! please help!!
Hey guys I was out recently hunting when my Super Black Eagle malfunctioned on me. I was shooting Fiocchi (high brass) #4's and my gun failed to ejected the round, which I found very odd because it always ejects high brass reliably. I manually ejected the shell and reloaded the next on into the chamber. When the opportunity arose to fire the weapon again, I pulled the trigger and nothing happened. The trigger would not depress all the way to the firing position, and the hammer would not release. I then took the gun home, disassembled it then cleaned it. After I put it back together, I tried to fire the weapon again, with the same result. So i disassembled the weapon again, and compared the firing mechanism to my cousins Super Black Eagle. I found something very strange, the hammer on my shotgun was getting held in a locked position all the way back.Upon comparing them I realized that the hammer was being held in different positions on my shotgun than on my cousins shotgun.It appears that the hammer is being held by the disconnector and not releasing when the trigger is pulled. I was wondering what causes this to happen, and what I need to do to try to fix it. I have taken the gun completely apart and cleaned it, but the problem is still there. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
