Benelli MP95 stove-pipe/Fail to Fully Eject Empty Benelli MP95 stove-pipe/Fail to Fully Eject

I have a very New-Old-Stock pistol with a Larry's Scope Mount on it - so it wraps around and above the ejection port.
I've only shot 250rds so far, but I get quite a number of empty brass casings being caught by the bolt before they clear the port.
Is this a break-in issue?
Is this the Scope Mount causing problems?
Other ideas?

My Pardini broke a firing pin at a match this past weekend. Had to pull out the MP95. I used to get a stove pipe now and then but lately I have been getting a lot of them. When I shoot open sights I never have a problem. It basically throws the brass straight up. I figured the Larry's mount was causing the problem. I tried rings and still had the same problem but not as severe. Wouldn't hurt to try a new extractor. I assume Redfeather  would be the place to go for Benelli parts?

I had that same problem with my MP95.  The empties hit the scope and bounce back down into the action.  The MP95 throws empties forward and slightly upward.  So I switched to a small red dot and used a single ring mounted in the rear most dovetail between the bolt and the rear sight.  Problem went away.  Bottom line - don't block over top of the action.

I’ll second this post. I use high rings with a 30mm red dot tube sight on my 95E and no issues with brass dropping back into the action. It hits the bottom of the scope and deflects out. With low and medium height rings, the problem persisted.
Also try a small drop of oil on the bottom of the bolt, every few magazines. Flip the gun upside down with the mag removed with the bolt in closed position, one drop of oil on the silver center rib of the bolt and it should be good to go.
Great pistol, btw, and way under-rated, imo!

Yeah, my model doesn't have mounting slots/dovetails in the barrel...
I could cut the mount so it held the scope from a single ring in the front...

Best pic I could find.
This pistol ejected in a 180* arc, so nothing could be over the port.
One extra tall ring just clamping the front of the dot.
Held fine over a few thousand rounds and was still tight when I sold it.

I've shot a MP90 for a long time. Not the most DOT friendly design with its ejection pattern.

Like said check extractor first, should hold case against bolt face. With Larry mount the cases should be clearing. If the extractor is OK try different ammo, more bolt velocity may help cases clear better. Mine never liked soft ammo even with light recoil spring.

I drilled and tapped my MP 90 with two holes on the flat behind the ejection port. I attached a short weaver base and mounted a one inch ultradot with one ring. This totally eliminated the ejection problem. 

The Benelli will drive you nuts if anything is covering the port!

I'm understanding what you did there now.  Got it - does seem like a fix-all solution.  Thanks.

This was my fix. Took it out today and no problems. Anyone want to buy a Larry's mount?

Had I know this now I would not have sold my MP95 I loved/hated that gun.

It held for at least 2k rds, probably more.
Front area on that dot is about 1/4”
and that was enough to hold.
