    <P>remove the barrel, take out the slide and the rest is a piece of cake. If you have problems write me back. I have the SBE breakdown guide and will walk you through it.</P>

    <P>there are 2 screws that you have to poke the rubber to get too them. Take them out and bingo your in. Remove the inertia tube and thats it, but you won't need to clean it, it's pretty well sealed up.</P>

    Once the stock is removed you can put a wrench on the hex nut, BE CAREFUL, The tube is made out of aluminum the nut or&nbsp; the whole tube may turn. The problem is, if you want to get the spring out you have to turn the nut while the tube remains stationary. And you should clean it its not as sealed as you think. My benelli started to act up and I cleaned the tube and it was a new gun. Now for some Truth The first time I did this I Crushed the tube using a small pair of vise grips. That's why BE CAREFUL, I learned my lesson to be patient.Now I can take it apart in my sleep. But it cost me.
