On my Benelli Legacy 20ga. and 28ga. I cannot tighten the Magazine Tube Cap all the way down to be snug to engage the detent ball unless I use a pliers and a cloth protection on the cap.
My question is---does the spring inside the cap have to be there or can I just pull it out and don't use it ?
When I did pull out the spring and reinstalled the cap the forearm was tight as the detent engaged for 1 3/4 turns.
----Thanks for any advice. Mark

My Montefeltro has that same spring, and I have the same problem, except I have a strong hand and can tighten it. Never have gotten a good answer why that spring is so damn stiff.

Glad to know that I'm not the only one that noticed how hard it is to tighten. I thought about taking it to the grinding wheel and making it shorter. Thanks for the reply

I don't know if I'd alter it.

The spring in various semi-auto shotgun magazines' caps must have an important purpose, considering how complicated/expensive to manufacture some of them are (Beretta AL390 comes to mind).

Hopefully, someone will jump in and tell you exactly what they do...

Yes I'm waiting. I called Benelli said that's how it fits, tight.

That spring is just pressed into the cap and will come out easily. See if you can find a less stiff spring and replace it.
