STEP BY STEP ON HOW TO BREAK DOWN AND CLEAN YOUR BENELLI SUPER VINCI SHOTGUN FOR BEGINNERS
In this gun cleaning how to, we are going to teach you how to clean and disassemble your Benelli Super Vinci shotgun.
To begin with, please make sure the gun is not loaded.
Now you're going to want to take off the fore-end assembly by pushing this button and turning the magazine tube cap until you see the white dot.
Give it a quarter twist in a counterclockwise direction.
Set that aside for now.
Remove the gun stock from the barrel by getting a firm grip and twisting the stock counterclockwise a quarter turn.
Set the stock aside.
We will now remove the bolt assembly from the barrel assembly.
This will take some finagling of the bolt shoulder plate.
Move it up and down as you work it out.
Now slide the bolt assembly out until the bolt handle stops further movement.
You can use a flathead screwdriver or really strong fingers to take the handle off of the assembly.
Set the handle to the side.
We will now remove the bolt assembly for further breakdown.
Again with your flat-head screwdriver, carefully remove the plastic retaining pin.
Once this is out, you will notice that the firing pin in the spring will disengage and can now be easily removed.
Next remove this silver locking head pin further up the bolt assembly this will allow us to take out the locking head assembly as well as the inertia spring.
Set these to the side.
Now let's take care of removing the trigger assembly.
First we want to push the trigger assembly pin out.
This allows us to take the full trigger assembly out as shown here.
Now spray down all the parts with some CLP. CLP is a solvent for gun cleaning as well a terrific solution for gun lubrication. Make sure to get the inside of the bold assembly with a squirt or two.
Spray down the trigger assembly as well. This will break apart and carbon and contaminants as well as lubricate all the moving parts. CLP is an absolute must have for your gun cleaning kit.
We'll let that sit while we concentrate on the barrel.
Coat everything on the inside, being sure to give a few pumps on both ends of the bore.
For a really dirty gun we’ll let the CLP sit for about 15 minutes.
After letting it sit for a bit, take a 12 gauge bore cleaning kit (kind of like a bore snake, but better) and send the brass weight down the barrel. Pull the kit on through.
Now we'll detail everything we removed.
Cotton swabs and gun cleaning nylon brushes work wonders on aiding your cleaning.
Really get in there and be sure to scrub every surface that you sprayed with your CLP.
The CLP will have already done the heavy lifting extracting carbon and gunk you didn't even know existed.
Now use your gun cleaning cloth for a final wipe down.
You guessed it, we're gonna do the opposite of what we did to tear down your Benelli Super Vinci shotgun.
Take the trigger assembly and slide it into the fore-end assembly. You may need to push back the latch assembly like I'm doing here with my left thumb to get the trigger assembly to slide in just right.
Slide the pin back in place onto the bolt assembly.
Be sure to give a squirt of your CLP inside the bolt assembly before sliding the inertia spring back into its place.
After the spring is in, slide the locking head assembly into place and then twist it clockwise until it seats itself.
Take the locking head pin and place into its home, being sure that the little hole in the pin is facing towards the front and back of the bolt assembly.
Again a couple of squirts of CLP on any moving parts to make sure it's good and lubricated.
Now we'll take the firing pin and slide it into its spring and reinsert it into the bolt assembly.
By holding it in place we can now take the plastic retaining pin and seat it in
Now take the bolt assembly and slide it back into the barrel assembly.
Keep an eye on the hole for the bolt handle and line it up in the slide path.
You can now reseat the bolt handle in place.
Make sure the rough concave surface is facing the front of the
Slide the bolt assembly forward making sure to seat it just the way we found it when we disassembled it.
It's a bit tight so you'll have to wiggle the shoulder plate into place.
Line up the white dot on the stock with the top flat part of the barrel.
Give it a quarter twist in the clockwise direction. This may take some effort. If you can't get it call grandma in for reinforcements.
Now to attach the fore-end assembly to the barrel, line up the notch shown here
with the white dot.
Unless you're a silverback gorilla, you're going to need to stand the gun upon its stock to push down on the four end while twisting the magazine tube cap in a clockwise manner.
There you have it, a fully re-assembled and cleaned Benelli Super Vinci shotgun.
