  1. One of the kids. Duck to water on the m4. I couldn’t keep the rounds flowing fast enough.

  4. I haven't installed one nor had sufficient intellectual curiosity just to knock it out for the heck of it BUT if I did this would be my plan. Call factory for replacement support collar; then whack away. But I believe you would have to have the proper support collar for the plunger which I envision as a small externally splined cylinder that allows the spring powered plunger head to traverse thru it. I believe the plunger spring assembly is removed by inserting a 1.5 mm punch thru the access port on the back side of the assembly which would fit thru the spring to greet the back sid

  5. M1014/11701: Limited edition flag model. Comes with a oem collapsible stock that doesn’t function. The receiver extension is neutered to prevent function. Barrel does not have removable chokes. The original release of 1-2500 came with aluminum trigger frames. Current production flag editions outside of this initial release have polymer frames. Original release had a different barrel design that didn’t have the seating ring that mates against the receiver face. Handguards were slightly different as to account for this seat ring. 922(r) rules apply for modifying the shotgun’s capacity and collap

  6. As a certified firearms instructor, I would preface saying that the best firearm you have is the one you’ll actually carry. The shotgun in the house will do little good standing in the driveway. Every time I have needed a firearm, I have never had the luxury of 30 seconds to go retrieve one. I would recommend seeking profession training to ingrain the firearm rules. I’d recommend both you and your wife attend one since knowing your legal rights is as important as picking a gun. I’d do this before spending a bunch of money.

  7. My M4 looks just like any other right now, but the custom case with a benelli flashlight and a interestingly gripped knife with a matching serial number is pretty unique. The only downside is the case is a bit oversized, and the foam isn’t cut in a way that permits adding an RMR, a light, or a stock with an adjustable length of pull so I might have to buy another pelican case.

  8. Out of what can only be described as sheer luck, I came across this gun at Bass Pro this afternoon. To add icing to this already awesome cake, I got it for almost $150 under normal retail. It’s safe to say I’m pretty happy right now!

  9. OMG what an ammo eater. This thing spit shells fast. I ran a few different ammo types through it fairly fast. 5 different targets, fast trigger pulls 5 for 5. I was singing. You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey You're as sweet as strawberry wine... Bottom line, worth every penny. I paid GB pricing buy it now, still worth it.

  10. Nope, that's our normal pricing. Unlike others, we don't jack up the price to score some extra profit. Our pricing remains the same as it was a year ago.

  11. Hey all, I just purchased a new M4 limited edition fixed skeleton stock. It was not the weapon I thought it was (due to my lack of research) and found this forum. Using the search all my questions have been answered. I have ordered a 3 position recoil tube, 7 rd mag tube and a compliance trigger / follower kit. I will be replacing it all as soon as I'm state side. The wealth of knowledge here is awesome! 🤘

  12. I got my M4 H2O 2 weeks ago by sheer dumb luck at a nearby Cabelas ( 15 miles away ). My Cabelas doesn't even list the M4 as something they carry. I saw a regular M4 in stock on my area BassPro website a few months ago, but hesitated and it was gone. Their order online/pickup in store option was not available at that point either. I considered their waitlist option but decided not to bother. I got the list of my local dealers ( north of Atlanta ) off the Benelli USA website, contacted each and every one of them, and came up empty. I sadly drove to Cabelas 2 weeks ago for m

  14. The SRO was developed by Trijicon to provide a purpose-built pistol red dot for competition, which the RMR is not. That’s why the SRO has a broader FOV and, most importantly for pistol users, the ability to change the battery without removing the entire optic (something you have to do with the RMR). However, Trijicon’s own reps have gone on record to say that the SRO isn’t built to the same durability standards as the RMR, since the taller glass is more prone to breakage. Before you make the call on an optic and mount, I would encourage you think about what your preferred sight picture

  15. There is a lot of extremely good comments and advice here, IMO. Deciding to arm yourself at home or concealed carry away from home is really a lifestyle change. That can sound overwhelming but it shouldn't deter you from taking the first step on the journey. Other than parroting what others have already said, my best advice is for you and your wife to do it together if you can; this should be easier because it will be new to the both of you and you won't have the typical scenario of the know-it-all husband telling the little wifey what she needs and how to do it. Do some research o

  16. After two very intense training classes, my setup has held up perfectly. The level 2 class really pushed us to try every possible scenario and shooting position under the sun. That also helped confirm that my setup works well in less than optimal circumstances. Couldn’t be happier with the Briley long handguard. It helps put the light much further forward which is optimal. The Federal Flight Control 00 buck in the M4 practically performs like a slug out to 15 yards. At 30 yards I was still getting all 8 pellets in the “A” box. Federal TruBall 1300 fps slug is nearly as accurate as shooting wit

  19. Finally an easier solution for adding a Limbsaver to the Benelli M4 is available. This is significantly easier and requires fewer parts in the past assemblies of the 10111 model that required the Noveske adapter plate that is no longer sold. For this assembly we'll be using the Limbsaver 10403. This model has a raised lip on the inside of the buttpad that helps center the pad on the stock. First step is to remove the collapsible stock from your shotgun. You will then need to remove the factory buttpad by using a philips screw driver and inserting it in to the two small holes on the f

  20. I’d disassemble it, inspect it, see how everything works. Clean off the packing protective oil. Oil it up wet with something good on the action. Grease the sear contacts on the trigger pack. Leave the pistons and magazine dry. Resassemble and take it out. Fire low dram value pack stuff to see how it performs with weak ammo. Shoot as much buckshot and slugs as your shoulder and wallet can stand.

  21. I have always thought the 922r law was thought up by one of the major aftermarket suppliers here in the USA. It has benefited them tremendously.

  22. You need to determine if the stock's adjustment button allowed the stock to twist on you when firing. I'd want to inspect the stock to see if any of the pins that lock the stock in place are damaged. This damage could also be on the button itself. If the receiver extension is moving around under recoil, it's dangerous and should be addressed. It's just a matter of time before it twists during recoil and you get socked in the eye by the rear sight assembly. I'd highly recommend fixing it yourself, having Benelli address it or sending it to me. I would not let a general gunsmith try to fix

  23. Many thanks for all the knowledge sharing on the this forum which helped me personalize my M4. Upgrades: Collapsable stock, Limbsaver pad, FFT bolt handle, Briley CF mag tube with Nordic extended follower, GG&G bolt release, FFT trigger pack with A&S Trigger guard, TTI extended safety, TTI extended carrier, Carlson breach choke, Tango Arms stippled forearm, and Meprolight night sights.

  29. Hey everyone! First post here. Yep I've looking for an M4 for awhile. Was just resigned myself to buying at an inflated price on Gunbroker when I stumbled on a nice lightly used one at the LGS next door to my office. No box with it but it looks like a #11707. Pistol grip w/field stock, 5 rd magazine etc. Out the door for $1400 so I'm happy 🙂. Now I can use the savings to trick it out with 7 rd magazine, c-Stock...........

  30. The bolt handle has a simple recess that is captured by a spring-loaded ball detent integral to the bolt. Lateral pull will be sufficient to liberated the bolt handle from the bolt. The bolt handle can then be utilized to displace the receiver trigger group retaining pin for field disassembly.

  31. Search, search, search. I looked for three months, not like a mad hatter, but enough to show some interest. Website after website, used the “show in stock” or the “easy” search methods (sort, etc). Nothing. Then something clicked on night when I was on my fourth whiskey. Half of these sites are stuck in early to mid 2000s web platforms. So instead of relying on the upfront “easy” search, did it directly by sku. Old school. And poof. Same night, 3rd website - found one at Northwest Armory. Didn’t believe it, went to home page searched by normal means- Nothing. Put in sku, (sounds of angels),

  32. I survived the shotgun class yesterday. The temps hit 104! Getting old and nursing a fractured wrist and ribs didn’t help any. Most of the shotguns in the class were pumps, but there was one other M4 and an M2. The M2 owner actually ran an M1014 during his service in the military and was huge asset figuring out the differences in manipulations during the malfunction drills and ammo swap drills. There was even a Keltec dual tube shotgun, that was constantly having issues if all kinds. Many instructors don’t teach shotgun classes simply because most people follow the myths that shotguns don’t ne

  37. Had this happen on a 20ga. M2. Yeah, I tried the alcohol wipe-down. No joy. You could take a fingernail and bite into the plastic. I figured an improper mix/cure process on the material. Called Benelli. They sent me a new stock.

  38. I will agree that training is very important. Both you and your wife should pursue that. The M4 is an excellent choice for a home defense shotgun. It's probably a better choice than a pump because of inexperienced people short stroking the pump action and not feeding the next round in a rush. A semi auto would be more reliable when shooting quickly. As Stranger and Nails have said. Consider a handgun as well. The M4 is only good if you have it with you which is not very likely all the time as you move around your property. A handgun is easier to be carried always. There are many small 9

  39. Check your local community for firearms courses of instruction on "home defense". Many shooting ranges/academies/centers provide classes covering protecting your family and home. Your spouse can attend to learn, as well. Most "Home Defense" courses of instruction will cover firearm types, techniques and tactics, as well as, safe room setup, surveillance, and the most important item being maintaining Situational Awareness.

  41. 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.

  43. RPC - Epic story of your loving wife! I like your build but curious about the light and its operation. Looks like an end-cap switch. Have you run the gun with HD loads and manipulated the light as you might in a HD situation? Do you change your thumb position to switch the light then back to more of a standard grip? Just wondering about the ease of operation and if the bezel around the end cap digs into your thumb during recoil. Would a remote tape switch be better? I guess this question would make for a new topic.

  44. I almost died by a bear attack, I live up north where the big ones roam.. I knew a 12ga slug was a great choice for bear protection and carried a Mossberg pump action and practiced with it regularly. At the time I was against a semi-auto shotgun because I had convinced myself that simple was better,.. and who in there right mind would pay $2000 for a shotgun!? 😏 I woke up covered in moss and fresh pungent soil. My breathing was raspy as though I had flim that I couldn't quite cough up. I couldn't see out of my left eye and I could smell and taste that distinctive iodiney smell of blo
