    15,000 rounds later and a mix of Nickel Boron and NP3 plated parts with a surface layer of burnt bronze Cerakote. Due to the ongoing crisis, I decided it would be a good time to clean the M4. I have just been shooting more oil in to the M4 for the past two years or so. It's ate about 2,500 rounds in that period of time without any failures. I decided to delete the iron sights from my M4 since they obstruct the view of the optic. My Intellibeam weapon light is off being painted for the past month or so, so I'm roughing it with my 500 lumen M600C head that was painted previously. The bolt carrier group and trigger group is all NP3.

    I'm a fan of the velcro systems over the hard mounted ones. The velcro ones weigh less and crush flat when not in use. I didn't care for how stiff it was to pull the shells from the Mesa one either.

    It’s pretty bad ass if you’re an early 90’s ninja turtle.

    Mine came in today, i ran about 12rds of field loads and about 3 3" turkey loads, no issues. I love the feel of it and if it holds up I'll be content with it as permanent charging handle....I'll keep yall posted.

    Well I hope to have my gun in hand tomorrow. My 870 is at the gunsmith now so I am excited to pickup the M4. I couldn’t help but accessorize it a bit. I went with a Scalarworks Sync Mount, Holosun 508v2, Mesa Tac stock, Ambi sling mounts, Titanium tube from FreedomTac, new forend (gonna have my friend stipple), new follower, IWC light mount, BUT not sure on the light (I had wanted the AVA to use my Olight M2 but that’s a no go). I’ll see when it all gets here whether I want to buy another Scout light setup. I love Surefire but they are $$ and Olight has been amazing lately. I had wanted to avoid using a pic rail with my light.

    Yes, they come in a bag marked that they’re made by Benelli.

    I ordered the IWC. The AVA was amazing though. Very well thought out and machined so low profile.

    Thanks again. I’ll try the Noveske cups, I ordered a set. I’ll checkout the light mount also.

    I used a Tacstar slimline on my 870 and another hard shell type on my 590. I am not in love with either. I shoot lefty and decided to go with the ESSTAC cards for my M4. It’s a cheap way to try the Velcro out. If it works I can swap to the other guns. I also have a chest rig with Taco’s that can hold them if I need. I figure a reload will look like this. Strip the old card off, pull the new one out of the Taco, place it on the gun, and reload off the card. Shooting lefty I have to turn the gun over so I would stage my shells accordingly for an upside down reload.

    mickey d; I actually misspoke when I said that I have the QD cup in my M4 stock. I DO have it installed in my 590A1 stock but, I used the NOVESKE replacement sling plate on my M4 that has a QD cup on one side of it. But as I said, if you opt for the cup, it will work, the threads are long enough. The 590A1 stock has thicker walls than the M4 stock. I think the sling plate is the better option for the M4 unless you have the collapsable stock. It just takes a little work to replace the OEM plate with the NOVESKE plate. Sorry for the confusion

    AVA quit manufacturing a couple years ago. Nobody knows why. I think this is the only option now. It's a great mount. https://www.impactweaponscomponents.com/product/multi-light-benelli-m4-mount-scout/

    Fully loaded with 7+1+1, adding a side saddle will add substantial weight. Better think about a sling also.

    Not Glen but I have installed the Noveske QD cup on my Benelli M4 standard pistol grip stock and my 590A1 stock and the threads are plenty long enough. No worries.

    In his honor I dug a little deep into this forum and retrieved a little Friday Funnies. I guess this is the one that he puts away because it's too..., pretty?

    Thanks. Ken makes his rounds every few months to give us all a good laugh. I’m sure he has an opinion on how to properly lace shoes too.

    I do... Did it to save a bit of weight and have one less component with corrosion issues to worry about... that being said it's still a chunk of change that really doesn't offer much enhanced functionality. Top notch machining and finishing though.

    Holosun with ACSS reticle....don't laugh, ive tried to break this optic but i have not been able to. Its sitting on a scalarworks mount. Love it.

    Yep, if you need any specifics, let me know. Pricing is expensive. An entire Benelli M4 with accessories ran about 1100.

    It is plated. The older carriercomp followers allowed you to knock the plastic high visibility indicator out of the factory follower and install it into the carriercomp one.

    Thanks, it never occurred to me to keep the lever depressed . . . learned something new😄

    Ok, just tried this. While holding the drop lever up, every manual cycle of the bolt ejects a round and chambers the next round. Repeating the process (lever up and manual bolt cycling) eventually cycles all the rounds out until empty. Thanks!

    You are on the right track with your methods. You can also hold the drop lever up, cycle the bolt continuously (while continuing to hold the drop lever up) , no need to press the lever for each shell in the magazine.

    I'll put some electrical tape over the back end to cover the shiny spot. 😆🤣😂😄😁

    We have concluded this trade and I must say everything was as near perfect as I could hope for. Kudos Milspec. 👍

    Yes it is. It feels good. Had to tighten it a little as far as the front screws go. It’s solid though

    I had to smack the pistons out with a plastic hammer. They were free to move with the ARGO plugs in place, but once they were removed and the pistons were pushed out the front they were gummed up. The pistons themselves were Nickel Boron plated back around 2013. No oil is ever used on the pistons or the ARGO system to avoid smoke during firing. The bolt carrier group was fairly easy to clean. The only carbon build up was on the bolt itself. There was some unburnt powder or shell media randomly scattered throughout the carrier. Given that it was NP3+ plated, the assembly wiped clean with a rag. A Tornado brush was used to remove all the lead embedded in the barrel. There was a pretty good sized pile of lead slivers on the ground from the brush. The trigger pack collects a lot of debris from the shells. Given that all the parts were NP3+ plated, they wiped clean easily. I felt no need to submerge it in the ultrasonic cleaner or disassemble the trigger pack. Just wipe it down and cleaned with Q-tips, then reoiled. The inside of the receiver was plated in nickel boron way back when as well. Carbon build up was present inside the rails for the bolt carrier and where the pistons make contact with the bolt carrier group. This was easily cleaned with Q-Tips. Random debris was collecting in the back of the receiver beneath the rear sight. This area has no effect on performance. There was quite a bit of carbon build up beneath the plastic handguards, this area wiped clean easily as well.

    No worries. Benelli tried to bait and switch us all on that one.

    got he heat gun last night and the mag tube is one, wasn't too much caked on locktite but it did take a while to heat it up, maybe i was being overly cautious. i also noticed a slight difference in color, but not that big of a deal. my end cap threaded up with no issues. thanks everyone for the tips!

    Here it is in writing; https://www.benelliusa.com/support/faq The Benelli rep told your people that because they plainly say that it is not safe to shoot slugs thru anything tighter than an IC. Obviously, lots of people ignore that advice and do it without apparent problems- yet.

    yeah, not too sure, but I can confirm it is a legitimate deal. they have the Remington version for $60, they also have the ODG M4 stock, no limbsaver and ODG forend for $40 lol.

    I didn’t use loctite either, of it ever loosened up I can always add it later.

    good to know, i'll try to mess with mine tonight, I only have a high powered hair dryer so hopefully that will heat it up enough lol.

    This is the brand that came highly and widely recommended when I was looking to convert to 7 rounds. I don't have the H2O, but the link takes you to their finish for the H2O https://www.shop.carriercomp.com/product.sc?productId=5&categoryId=4

    No update. I would not hold my breath. In looking at the basic geometry - ie where they put the pivot pins, I do not see a way to make the trigger significantly better. Since there are other less expensive 922R parts out there to get to the required count, I'm just going to stick with the hammer for now. Sorry.

    StrangerDanger has helped countless amounts of people with there Benelli's. I personally cannot count the amount of times I've referenced his material when I double guess myself or haven't a clue to begin with. The amount of time it takes him to take photos mid process and type his extensive explanations is all to often over looked or taken for granted. Thank you Stranger Danger! I've shared this photo before here on the forum, I dont know why it wouldn't show up on a Google search for: 1014 recoil tube depth Benelli M4 recoil tube depth Benelli 1014 recoil tube depth Benelli M4 recoil tube picture Maybe it will help someone in the future...

    I know this is an older thread, but I have to praise you on your instructions. I couldn't find anything, anywhere, on changing the recoil tube assembly. The tip on the taking pictures to ensure proper alignment of the new assembly was spot on, as well. Thank you so much StangerDanger!
