  1. This is why I use OEM Benelli handguards and let Tango Arms stipple them. I know they are made of an application-tested material, and I know they will fit correctly. The USMC tested the everloving hell out of the XM1014. I trust they got the handguard material dialed in.

  2. While these look nice, I have a very strong preference for the current Tango Arms.

  3. Impact Weapons Components - They make one that attaches to the barrel band in place of the sling loop. There is also a built in QD socket on it. I’ve got one on mine and love it! You can find them here IWC M4 light mount. There is also a QD socket adaptor that goes on the collapsible stock. It can be found on the same page. Freedom Fighter Tactical also sells IWC stuff, but be warned - you will be tempted to buy more stuff for your M4 if you go there 😉. Your wallet may cry afterwards.

  4. I don't know about overrated but, yeah, it's just another stupid law written by imbeciles who likely know zero about weapons, designed for nothing other than to punish law abiding gun owners into submission. That said though, I would not want to be caught in that trap.

  5. Okay...I decided to finally weigh in on this. I do not have an overly technical understanding of anodize, but what I do have are a plethora of high level industry contacts NOT associated with Benelli. I've discussed anodizing with multiple people in the industry regarding thickness, surface growth and propagation, all that jazz, and what it amounts to is that type III anodize, black, can and will show color variance even among the same batch. It's all about the witch brew of chemicals, time, current, surface hardness and specific alloy, and other factors involved. Brighteners, surface treatmen

  8. Just wanted to update you all. Was still tweaking the design for the detent... Hoping for you all to be pleasantly surprised at what I was able to accomplish with my design. I spent a bit more $$ on R&D as I had a specific vision for what I wanted out of it.. for a smaller company it was a big leap, I believe it will be worth it. Photos will be added this week most likely, in addition to me being able to start taking orders (hopefully).

  9. Agreed on the stippled oem handguard. Rail systems are notoriously bad for ergonomics. The Surefire M80 was a Pringles can with picatinny rails on it. The Strike Industries MLOK rail was relatively comfortable, but has a horrendous mounting solution. The Briley rail runs into the weight and ergonomics issue as well as the Agency arms rail. They all add a bunch of weight and don’t serve a lot of purpose that can’t be met with a lighter solution like the IWC mount. Most of the rail slots are essentially useless. Their only benefit is they reduce overall weight by having a MLOK hole i

  13. A little teaser. This is shiny, final version will be sand blasted, I'll try and get a photo of a blasted one this weekend. Also, likely to reduce the wall thickness to take weight down a bit more. But as it is, it is the same as OEM. Doing more tests this weekend. Went with “volcano” knurl which has a dimple at the peak of the knurl to reduce sharpness. It feels good.

  15. Contact Briley about the forcing cone work on the Benelli M4. I spoke to them a few years ago about it. They didn't recommend it. They stated that it could lead to some function problems with certain ammunition.

  16. bambihunter, I sent them back yesterday for a refund. Actually the viles are super small and do not look very bright. Keep an eye out on Botach site. They seem to put that older model on sale occasionally when they get stock. And should have a set in a few days.

  18. Exactly why he should have tested some birdshot from Valuepack to high brass! Birdshot will definitely ruin your day, but it might not take the fight out of a motivated attacker immediately. I'd leave birdshot for the birds.

  19. Got a few more of these H2O builds going on. With all the covid bullshit and run on guns this past year, it's taking a long time to first get all the parts wanted, then shuffle the parts thru plating. This one is still waiting on its plastics to be painted in OD green cerakote. I'm doing another one where everything had been NP3 plated, and now we're cerakoting the exterior in FDE. About the only things that will be black will be the rubber grip, rubber part of the buttpad, and the control buttons on the Trijicon RMR. Several more are in various states of waiting at Wright for platin

  20. The only thing it prevents you from getting to is the pistons.... And when are you ever going to need to strip the pistons? Everything else is strippable. Additional mlok rail I'd say is a practical purpose. Allows for mounting light, buttons, indexer, hand stop, single shot reload, sling mount, etc.

  21. Yep. IMO, nothing beats OEM guards stippled by Tango Arms.

  22. Hello I figured I would put this out here on the Benelli before going to gunbroker. I'm selling my Supersport Performance Shop that has around 400 shells through it I just don't get to shoot clays like I was before I moved. Great gun with a little bit of wear on the buttpad and underside of the stock. I'm going to ask $2,000 plus maybe $50 for shipping via Zelle or Paypal friends. This has the original hard case and Briley/Benelli(5) chokes that came with it. It will have to ship to an FFL unless you are within a couple of my location in Waycross, GA. Let me know if you have any questions or a

  27. I think I only made it to about 2500-3000 before cleaning it. It still worked just fine, I just got tired of it looking like crap and getting fowling on things like car seats. Overall, it has about 16k thru it since 2004.

  30. If you are talking about a whole bunch of customization just for the sake of customizing, I wouldn't pay anything for that. Only because IMO, parts that many people so often replace don't really gain anything and are superfluous bling. But that is just my opinion. It's quite easy to make an M4 922R compliant. The degree of easy depends on which parts you change out. A US made 7 round tube and follower is 2 parts and US made hand guards makes 3. Done. But I would go with OEM hand guards stippled by Tango Arms and use the A&S trigger housing for #3. And as long as you have a chea

  34. Hmmm... not surprising to me. My opinion of FFT stuff is that generally, the stuff they put out is "almost...but, not quite." That's the best I can describe my opinion of their stuff. I had their hand guards and I had an NP3 7 round tube of theirs.

  38. I believe the point alpha was making, is by getting a "fire-rated safe", you'll hopefully have temperatures inside the safe low enough that it doesn't hit the ignition point of the ammo inside. For ammo, I follow the recommendation of a late friend of the family. He was the fire chief for 25 years and a fire investigator for another 10-15 years. He said from their perspective they'd rather the ammo be inside a good, high temp rated fire safe. In absence of that, then they'd rather loose ammo in boxes. What they don't want is ammo loaded in the chamber in guns, and especially not in a tight fit

  40. yes I also have bought a couple and like them .. I didn't really like the looks of most of the other after market charging handles and these have that original look to them and blend in just right.. I bought a few things lately from Botach and either I am lucky or Botach has stepped up on their shipping and customer service .. I even had to send back a faulty set of night sights with ease and refunded quickly.. very good and quick customer service response all the way around ...

  42. A little trick when installing the safety - just put the detent and the spring down the hole without the safety button - this way you don’t have to fight the spring or have an extra hand when you drive in the pin (the spring will be well below the pin). Then start to put the safety button into its hole. Use a small screwdriver to push up on the detent, then push the button the rest of the way through.

  43. Benelli should sell them as a thin blue line law enforcement edition. People will pay a premium! A forum member sent me a blue M4 and a black M1014. The color is drastically different between the two. They used to release a bunch of M4’s that had an OD green hue. The blue ones still look better than the purple Barney preban Bushmaster AR-15’s.

  44. The blue "fuck up" has been around for a long time. Here is one in this youtube video from 4 years ago, and I have a friend who had one like it from factory in like 2012. It's always been a thing for some to be blue, not really a quality control flaw, as it doesn't affect the quality of the gun. All that being said, I do understand that if you want a black gun, it could be upsetting to not receive one. Benelli should just start actually labelling the ones that turn out blue as such, and then sell them as that separately from the black ones.

  45. I used their supplied spring. I don't know if it is a different weight. Like maybe they calculated the weight of the pad into the spring rate? I'd guess either would work fine once set correctly.
