  1. LOL...yesterday's frustration resulted in the purchase of a decent bench vise and a MAPP torch! This s*** is about to get real!😛

  2. So glad I found this thread. Just got my M4 11707, and ran into the 4 shell load issue. Short of pulling the spring, couldn’t figure it out. Needless to say for the price of the gun, and having this issue when advertising 5+1 is slightly frustrating. The potential 7 spring isn’t bad if going to the full tube, but wasn’t something I planned on immediately, especially with 922 compliance (overall cost) from the initial cost of the gun. Funny thing is the freedom fighter tactical video that covers the full Tube and 922r - dude says that people have run the 5 inch spring without issue. T

  3. Look at buying a MAPP torch. I bought mine at Home Depot. They’re cheap and pretty safe. They deliver a lot more heat quickly than a heat gun. It’s no acetylene torch, so you don’t have to worry about melting metal. The faster you heat the magazine tube, the less heat will wick into the receiver. It has an igniter in the trigger so it’s easy to ignite and shut off. No mixture knobs to mess with or anything. If you can operate a BBQ igniter, you can operate this torch. Apply the heat to the base of the steel magazine tube and rotate it around the tube evenly. Apply heat for 20 seconds, try to

  4. Yup, sounds like yours is sealed on there as hard as mine was. Just be patient with the heat gun and focus on that spot I told you about. About two minutes of direct heat should be enough to loosen it up.

  5. It’s not just the vise. Benelli put a shit-ton of red thread locker on there. I had to heat mine several times because I’d get half a turn here, 3/4 turn there. Eventually I just said screw it and focused the heat on the inner part of the receiver where the threads screw into. Headed it up until there was a decent amount of smoke coming out of the tube then I was able to spin it out. Just be patient then you’ll get it out without damaging your finish.
