    Bought a stf 3000 for $350 from dicks. Shoot clays once every 3 months or so if that. Wanted something cheap. Gun was great for the 1st 25 shots then the trigger stoped reseting for the second or top shot, Ive read about light primmer hits but on mine I don't even get that. anyone else have a similar problem? don't want to send back if possible, I here it takes about 2 months to get back. thanks for any help.

    That's the problem with buying cheap.. The cheap becomes expensive.. I don't have any solutions for you.

    not gonna cost me a dime under warranty, but just would rather not wait for a fix, I'm capable of fixing it my self if someone has gone thru this before. but thanks for your advice.

    Took it out this weekend after a couple really good clean and lubes. Still not working. Took it back to Dicks sporting goods and they are gonna send it back to benelli for a fix or replacement. Let you know what happens latter.
