Hello. I just joined the forum. I purchased a Benelli M1 and it came with a long hunting barrel. I purchased a 14in barrel from Benelli and after I installed it, I couldn't fit more than one shell into the tube after chambering the first shell. The second shell gets lodged halfway in and I have to pry it out. Before chambering, I can fit 2 into the tube, but it felt a little rough going in. This is my first Benelli. Thanks in advance for any help.

I was able to fix it. There was a janky homemade plug in the tube. Removed it and works great now

I thought 18” was the shortest “legal” barrel length??
