  1. This is actually a H2O, just externally painted in FDE Cerakote. This M4 is set up for a leftie. Only the visible areas of the bolt carrier are painted in FDE, everything else is Np3 plated. One cool feature is the RMR spacer that is a 10mm spacer. This raises the RMR up enough to use the optic in the middle position of the collapsible stock comfortably. The spacers come from Reptillia in a few different heights. I had to grind the screws down to make them the correct length to fit the Scalarworks Sync mount.

  2. I was minding my own business this morning and wondered myself how to make it a clean installation. I prefer the sling mount at the grip level as it balances better for me when used. I would keep it simple / inexpensive by just using asymmetric Magpul flush cups, both threaded. It does not permanently mar / modifiy the hole. Consider using a thin nylon washer on either side between stock finish and the cup surface.

  3. First time post from a new member. Been reading this forum a lot for about a year and have appreciated the knowledge. So here is mine. I know it’s really plain and stock but I love it. Found it at a local pawn shop last year for 1k$ out the door used. I have shot it a lot and it has been 100% reliable with all manner of 2 3/4 shells I have put thru it. Everyone who has shot it absolutely loves it. My only complaint was the length of pull on the factory stock was too long for me. Snagged the Mesa Urbino when they were on sale for like 40$ and I absolutely love the ergonomics. I do wish it installed as securely as the factory stock though although it hasn’t came loose over some pretty hard use over the last year

  5. You deduced the issue correctly. It’s the TTI hammer spring causing you grief. Go back to oem and your issues should go away. I’ve never known anyone who’s M4 would work with those pieces of crap in the pack.

  9. Bottom two went home this past week. Second from the top should be going home this week. The FDE one is still waiting for some corrections on paint.

  10. All good choices probably the t2 would be my top pick though.

  11. The T2 will give you a clearer image and battery life of around 4-5 years of constant on. the RMR has a very good battery life too but it also has the fiber optic/ tritium option. Both are battle tested, both will serve you well. Cowitness has its draw backs. If your optic gets damaged or muddy both sight and irons are out of commission. If you run a low mount on the rail all you need to do is flick a lever and you have your irons. personally I run a low QD mount RMR because I like running the stock collapsed. I have a BKC front sight and the triangle RMR.

  12. Nah. With the lowest 22mm mount it already blocks the sights. I am going against the grain and don’t really care for co-witness on a shotgun.

  15. This is Italian. Part of the reason I am keeping my Benelli m4 guns 100% American milspec as far as the functional aspect goes, is because Aberdeen, as kludgy as they are, tested the shit out of it. As a testament to how pedantic they are, the USMC benelli m4 has, to my knowledge, required zero revision in 2 decades. It has undergone a couple of improvements, mainly the barrel extension, and that's it. I want that kind of proven performance.

  16. The clearances in this arrangement passed all of the military testing. A 3# crisp trigger is not much advantage on a shotgun. On a 1moa gun, I've noticed a 0.25moa improvement across various triggers. With a shotgun, that's lost in the noise. As for speed, recoil managment takes more off the clock than a trigger ever will, if you're being accountable 100% for each trigger pull.

  17. So I had the Original AVA Tactical mount and had bought an Elzetta light to use with it. Got a good deal on the Elzetta on FleaBay. First time went to shoot the gun, the Elzetta pulled the ripcord and easily escaped it's restraint. The mount would not hold that light. Probably could have used some InnerTube material and got it clamped down, But I would have always been suspicious of it. Stranger Danger steered me to the Impact Weapons mount. Still needed another light though... The Surefires M600DF looked nice but High $$$. told me a while to make that leap but I just did and I have to say, they make nice lights, and strangely lightweight for their size. Glad I got it, never owned a Surefire before, now I kinda get why people like them. The Elzetta weighs 5.9 oz. and the Surefire weighs 4.6 oz., so that's a good thing saving 1.3 oz. SF is a little longer which will help with unshrouding the light a bit, the Elzetta threw a pretty big barrel shadow. Also, the Surefire ran 3 hours on the 18650 Battery that came with it, amazing! The Impact Weapons mount is really light and get's the job done perfectly, low drag as well compared to the AVA mount. The Impact Weapons folks extended the combination discount for the Surefire/Mount combo even though I had bought the mount quite a while ago. Thanks Earl Pitman for the discount after the fact! He seems to carry his phone around and answer it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week... With the discount the light was like $5 more from Impact, but I think those $ went to a good company for sure. StrangerDanger turned down the SureFire Switch for me and everything is ready to mount up now. Nice to have SD as my personal Gunsmith! I'd like to say thanx to everyone who helped me out on this! Here's some PIX:

  18. Here are some pics of the clearances for the raw titanium version. There is plenty of room and the cerakote shouldn't add any measurable difference to these. Bolt closed, it's about even with the GG&G bolt release. Bolt open, it's got plenty of room as well. @StrangerDanger is likely correct, the other guy inserted the FFT bolt past the detent...I had that bolt too and didn't experience that issue. I'm no shill for this bolt/manuf, but until (if) CC comes re-releases theirs, this one is staying on.

  19. Price things to sell or price them to keep. Or, may I suggest a "Dutch" auction. If you're not familiar, let me explain briefly., Place your Item up for sale at say $100 bucks. Then reduce the price everyday by lets say $5 bucks until one of two things happens. #1, either the price gets to the point where it's a flat out good/really good deal or #2, you reach a point were you simply can't go any lower and you terminate the offer. It's a win/win for everyone. My 2 cents...........................................

  20. SRO is my pick. Good battery life, compact, adequate window size, and thin frame.

  21. Uhaul sells boxes cheap, you can cut down a large box pretty easily. Hopefully they gave you a return shipping label.

  22. Another option would be the Trijicon SRO. It has a larger sight window than the RMR. If you pair that with a Jagerwerks BROS shield, you can harden that setup so it's gtg. It mounts to the same footprint as an RMR, and top loads a battery vs the bottom loading RMR

  23. materials prices are up quite a bit in the past 4 months, i'll need to increase the price on the next batch unfortunately. This is a very low margin product for me to start with. I mostly did it as I really wanted to have it for my self and I'm glad others enjoy it also. I'll be posting updates on my website (rxarms.com) for the progress of the order, I'll be likely ordering metal next week. I'll also be making a small changes to the v2 design. One, I'll be making the diameter a bit smaller, and extending the handle out 1/4", with the goal of keeping the same weight, but making the handle a bit longer (the diameter needs to reduce to achieve this). I am guessing new diameter will be around 0.57" instead of the 0.6" but we will see. thanks again for all the support.

  24. Really appreciate all of the useful knowledge on this forum. It helped me lock on to the 11715 model. I waited almost a year to grab one at msrp. My M4 is currently equipped with the IWC mounts and Surefire M600DF. Just patiently waiting for a good deal on a T-2 and I think she'll be done.

  25. Exactly. Be patient and don't pay the inflated price. Thanks to the awesome info on this forum, I waited months until my dealer had the 11715 model in stock at MSRP. Paying $500+ for a $225 part just seems silly.

  33. I have been studying the the bolt carriers for a while and my input it that it looks like it was dropped on a sharp edge (from another bolt carrier?) after machining. That spot is cut after forging, then the corner is chamfered so there should never be any marks like that. It won't affect anything, but I am surprised Wright Armories didn't catch this.🤨

  34. Early model S&W M&P pistols used small diameter solid pins to retain the extractor; like most mfg. a hydraulic arbor press with a few thousand psi runs thepin in perfectly within a matter of seconds, removing it was another matter. S&W eventually switched to a roll pin which is much easier to exchange; for the same reason SigSauer did similar pin conversions for their firing pin position retaining pin. For tight solid pins in particular, after applying some Kano Kroil for a few minutes, use the tapered starter punch (Wiha / Lyman / Proto make good ones) just to make the pin move a few millimeters, then switch to short shaft parallel punch then the longer parallel punch as needed; this sequence will save the thin punches from destruction. The silver lining is that you can take your bent pin, shorten it now and you will have the first member of your short punch set. The Rennsteig parallel punch set is clever in that an outer sleeve that supports the punch pin slides along its length, so you can begin with a "short" shaft punch exposed / supported so as you advance the length of the pin into the pin hole being removed, the pin hole walls themselves now continue to support the shaft of the punch. I made a set of brass roll pin punch holders.

  35. Pushed the roll pin out by hand as noted about, first step. Never used a nail as a punch. Notice that small diameter punches will deform like virtually every time use short shaft punches to get them started, note the short shaft roll pin punch used. You can get blank screwdriver handles and bore them to fit the punches when its not necessary or impractical to be beating on the punch with a hammer. I make a habit of using the correct punch application to avoid marring the gun art. Some examples of specific punches shown above.

  40. Euro optic is the cheapest I've been able to find so far. With LE/MIL discount, it's about $639. Just going by some of the reddit posts, deals with the T-2 pop from time to time in the 500-600 range. Hoping to find one of those deals as we close in on the holiday season... or a P-2 after seeing some reviews.

  41. A subtle update to the long standing M3 finally makes it way over here. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/910433587 Basically the changes: detachable stock QD sling mount larger charging handle phosphate bolt carrier bottom rail Could this entail the coming of the M4-A1? 🤔
