Crazy Ivan and His Flaming Benelli HD VIDEO

Any ideas what is causing flames like this to shoot out of the chamber of this guy's Benelli M4? I pulled a few scenes from a Russian's Benelli shooting session and slowed down the video so you can see the places where his Benelli looks like it is catching on fire.

Asked a buddy...

Let me start off saying I know NOTHING about Benelli's except what I have read in gun mags. But, I have a buddy who owns 4 of them as is pretty knowledgeable about them. His best guess was that it was either a really hot round causing the action to unlock under recoil earlier than it should or else the guy has switched springs or clipped out a coil or two. Sound logical to anyone else? I know they are inertial (recoil driven) so it sounds plausible to me...

The M4 is gas piston driven, not inertial driven, FWIW.

Using motor oil for lube. Seen it happen with Remmies at 3-Gun matches. That's my guess anyway.
