  1. I suggest you scratch that M4 itch lol welcome to the forum! You have to weigh the options, cost, and your tools/ability to each option. With the 1014 you get the collapsible stock (which is currently worth 800 to 1000 bucks) and you get a fixed choke barrel (barrel is not threaded for chokes) is that is something you prefer - I have not seen the info about the 1014 barrel being thicker per se, just that it is not threaded for chokes. Downside is that you do not have the 3 position recoil tube. So in order to make the collapsible stock functional on the 1014, you will have to buy a

  2. I built a second trigger pack using the A&S frame, aftermarket safety, a bunch of Benelli OEM parts, and FFT trigger kit. StrangerDanger has a great post on all the parts needed and how to assemble. He was a great help. I probably didn't need to keep my original trigger intact but it was fun hunting down the parts and figuring out how to put everything together. I'm pretty sure I posted a parts list with all the Benelli OEM part numbers you need to complete.

  3. Fitting the FFT hammer is pretty easy to do. I wouldn’t let that be a deal breaker for going that route.

  4. Big dog covered most of it. There is an instant gratification route, but it is initially costly. You’d have to buy two M4’s, a M1014 and an 11707 or similar variant. You’d swap stocks from the M1014 onto the 11707 variant and install a full length magazine tube. You could then sell the M1014 with the fixed pistol grip stock. General consensus for 922 compliance is you need at least four US made parts. A US made full length magazine tube and follower count for two of those parts. You then have options for the other two, A&S engineering trigger frame, Briley/FFT/Benelli parts

  5. I love this stock as the standard one is just too long for me. The Urbino stock fits just right. Hope I don't sound too much like Goldilocks, but I digress. The Urbino stock shoots loose about every two range sessions and I have to retighten with a flat head screwdriver. I read on this forum it is a disaster to loctite the threads, so I started looking for another solution. It seems the spring lock washer isn't a very good method of preventing rotation. This video shows why. I am thinking of ordering some of these Nord Lock washers. Can anyone think of any downsides? You can get a pa

  6. Ya I am upfront on all my dealings, I don't want to get burnt, nor would I want to burn anyone else. Thats sad to hear about the FFT, makes me question using a product that is out of spec in such a high-end firearm, like is the hardening done right? My mind thinks "is it so soft it will mushroom or so hard it will break"

  7. Yup other users have went that route with pretty decent success - get 2 guns, mix and match - live happy with your gun or guns. IF you would go this route and decide to sell the 1014 gun that has bad stock tube - please make sure you disclose it to the buyer that they would not be able to just put a collapsible stock on it and expect it to work properly (since without the regular stock on, no one can see the bad recoil tube). You are correct on 922 - the FFT trigger pack is what many guys have done (me included) and paired it with an A&S triggerguard. A word of additional advice -

  8. I think these two guys covered everything to the nth degree for you. However, I would add just one caveat.....I would not buy the gun sight unseen, like from GB or other online dealer that use a generic photo of a Benelli M4, because you very well might get one of Benelli's "COVID BLUE" receivers (as I call them) as has happened to several forum members here. Some have liked the blue colored receivers but, some have also hated it. Benelli gave a disingenuous excuse, (as far as I am concerned) as to why the change occurred from a normal parkerized type finish to a somewhat electric blue fi

  9. Looks great and may pick one up. I've always just run the OEM bolt release and can certainly agree the factory one is a good bit too small.

  10. I had the same issue with the Urbino stock on my M4. Then I found a External Star Washer Serrated Zinc in my tool box and mounted it on my Urbino stock retaining screw. It has not loosened since.
