    My brother bought a new Super Black Eagle II and has a major problem with it. With the bolt back in the lock posistion, it will slam shut on its own and discharge. He was loading the mag with the bolt back when it did it. His thumb was caught in the elivator and did some major damage. There is also a problem with the mag as there is a problem loading and unloading it. You can leave the bolt locked open and it will slam shut on its own just about all the time. He needs to send it in to a lab or somewhere for a Documented test. Does anyone know who or where it should go. Thanks Al

    Sounds like it needs to go back to Benelli.

    Benelli already has sent someone to get the shotgun, the shells he was using(new Federals) and the emptys. When he could not produce the empty hull, as the people with him were more worried about getting him to the hospital then looking for emptys they started giving him a hard time, They said it was the dealers responisabilty to make sure it was ok to go out in the first place and that he sould contact Gander Mt. He said he did and that he should go to Benelli. so he would not let them take it as it would be the last time he would see it. So now he needs to send it someplace to have an independent evualition done on it, before he can do anything else. He lost a piece of his thumb and the use of it. Al

    And he has how many teams of attorneys working on this? I bet the attorneys can find a testing lab...

    Not familiar with that gun, but "loading the magazine with the bolt back?"

    Didn't know you could do that.

    HP White Labs has been around since 1938 and has done loads of firearms related testing. I don't think they are inexpensive, but they do provide a service, or at least they did prior to the aquisition by Intertek. Mash the link above.
