  1. Just want to publicly say thanks to Unobtanium for the trigger group I bought from him in this thread. I received it today and it is perfect and new just as he described it. I knew that it would be from my impression of him during the last several years on this forum, is that he is a person who is very meticulous about his firearms. He also sent it out to me without first receiving the funds I sent him. Thank you, sir!

  2. I figured the H20 would be much harder to match and wondered how it would turn out.......well , he has this on lock and I am super impressed at the quality and finish. If you need a tube get a hold of him.

  3. Hey everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster. Been a Benelli/Stoeger fan for a long time and just got into the M4 world. First item, I have to give massive props to @strangerdanger. He is one of the most knowledgable shotgun guys I have ever ran into and is humble and friendly. He is an asset to this forum and to all here who enjoy Benelli guns. So the purpose of this post is to go through what worked for me and what didn’t as I took an out of the box M4 and upgraded it. There might be other lurkers or people wondering or on the fence about stuff, and if I can pay it f

  4. I’m retiring from the military soon and figured I would reward myself. I was finally able to locate a M4/11707 last week and now the project begins. BTW > StrangerDanger - your wheelhouse of knowledge has been greatly appreciated and so have a few others. I’ve been ranking my priorities for upgrades 1. ORDERED - CC Ti 7+1 tube/follower/wolf spring: awaiting backlog like everyone else. The wait won’t kill me... 2. ORDERED- Muzzle this really wasn’t a priority but saw they were in stock. Ordered from benelliparts and it shipped the same day. I love that! 3.

  5. Looks nice! Here's one I put together using a 1911 extended mag release button. Just had to drill and tap for a 5-40 screw to fit. All for about $25

  6. It came into my FFL on the 9th, but I couldn't pick it up till today cause he was in the hospital. The receiver is Black Black, and the manufacture year is 21. Need to tweak the foam in my 3gun case for that insane LOP on the stock. Was strange that it comes only in cardboard unassembled, when far cheaper guns come with a cheap plastic case. not whining, just caught off guard.

  7. I ordered the A&S trigger guard and the TTC carrier yesterday. 😬 I just got lucky is all. The owners son is currently a TAC-P for the Air Force and that sparked conversations once I had started providing documents for the background check. I’m not a TAC-P - just want to clarify that and that’s not an insult either. Those dudes are badass! But we talked for a while and I told him I was retiring this year and that I wanted to get back into shooting. I got the last one in stock and without telling me he knocked a few bucks off. Pretty cool right!?!

  8. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  16. I will just say that the guy and his wife are very nice. It seems like a small business and they are doing there best to make high quality tubes for a huge market. So, it may take time, but you are giving your money to real people and not a corporation.

  17. Good evening everyone. I am in the final stages of getting in material to produce a steel tang, titanium handle charging handle. I will be posting more details in this thread as they come. Titanium is ordered (Coming in from USA), and the steel tang will be stainless steel to prevent corrosion, RC 40, to prevent deformation from inserting and taking out the handle. This will be a locking charging handle. CNC Precision made, has an outside diameter of 0.6" (5/8") which is in between the 3/4" and 1/2". Final product finish will be sand blasted for a darker grey natural titanium look.

  18. The carrier was one of the first things I replaced. The stock one tore my thumb up. The taran carrier is awesome and makes loading much more comfortable. Once you start with the upgrades your screwed LOL........it is addictive. You ll love it man they are so much fun to shoot.

  19. As a general inquiry, what type of knurling do you all prefer to have? I am thinking to not have such sharp knurling as to cut up the hands, but knurling with a bit more of a flat top on it that will still provide grip, but not chew up the hands. If any of you have any input on your preference would love to hear it. I had in mind, something similar to the attached photo. Thanks.

  21. I had bought and assembled this unit with plans to put it into another Benelli M4. I chose to go a different path. This is an LNIB set of giblets from a donor trigger group that came from another gun of mine. Aside from being function tested, it is new/un-used. The trigger group (A&S) is the black, no logo variant, and was also new at the time I installed these smallparts. I used a black TTI safety, and the A&S reduced power safety spring. After assembly, as noted, I function tested this trigger group to ensure that it was safe, and fully functional. It is. All parts not described are

  22. Not posting this to question anyone's opinions or $anity regarding a folding stock -- just wondering about its utility and if that's the reason for the overwhelming demand. Is it because that's what the M4 is supposed to come with -- it makes the gun complete? Weight savings? Cool factor or do some shooters find adjusting the length-of-pull fits them better? Living in Rep of Cali I can't use a folding stock so I have not experience with it. My 11707 did come equiped with a 3 position receiver tube, so if we ever re-join the Union and the prices come down I may get one.

  24. I’ve been shooting shotguns since I was legally old enough to hunt. Maybe I’m not tactical enough, or I’m doing things wrong, but I’ve never felt the need to have a soda can for a charging handle on any of my semi autos. All the more reason to stick to the stock one in my M4.

  25. I bought mine because I liked the option to change the length. I am a big guy and the longest setting and middle setting work great for me. It saves a little weight I am sure too. Lets all be honest to - a lot of the reason everyone gets it is because exactly like you said: it is how a Benelli M4 SHOULD look and it just looks cool.

  26. For me it's all about the flexibility. The half way position is PERFECT for a red dot on a low quick release mount. The fully opened position is PERFECT for the factory sights. It basically gives the user the ability to utilize the gun in a way that fits their own personal shooting style.

  27. My beloved Caesar Guerini. The shop didn't have a left handed one so I drove up to the factory in Maryland to pick it up. When they brought it out I knew immediately the drive had been worth it.

  28. It’s a $10 option to forgo the trigger guard logo. It looks cool nonetheless, but I opted for the clean look without it.

  29. Chances are you didn’t get the spring seated properly in its little notch. The latch pivots on the pin so it isn’t a straight in and out sweep when the latch is moving around. This picture might help you see where the spring should be set:

  32. 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.

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

  34. 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 -

  35. Thank you!! Yes, LOTS of useful info!! I picked up two..I didn't want to modify anything, but that only goes so far. I have the M1014 / 11701 and the 11707.

  37. Been here observing things and studying/following threads for about a year now. Finally joined up 2 or 3 months back. Would like to thank the members (too numerous to mention) for their willingness to share knowledge and info. Because of their willingness to share this knowledge and info, I have completed one of three M4 builds, nearly completed a second and a third is in the works. Here are a few pics of my projects. Maybe this thread could be a place for others to share their builds/projects in one spot for all to enjoy.

  38. The SRO tool. This is were it all started. I just want to give a big shout out to all of those that have purchased or referred my SRO tool. Today I have sold my 100th unit. It has been such a dream come true. I especially want to thank the few of you that took faith in me and preordered the SRO tool before I got the final product finished. Between this forum and the SIG Talk and Ruger forum it (in my book) has been a great success. Once again I thank all of those that has supported my dream.

  41. Second what SD recommended. A PLHv2 in 18650 body length fits awesome on your IWC mount with a 14" barrel. If you're running the factory handguards, the tailcap suggestion is best. If you're running a SF M80 or Agency handguard, then you have some remote switch options i.e. Hot Button, Modbutton Lite, ect. Here's mine with a SF Scout and Modbutton Lite on an M80 rail.

  43. Interesting. I've had better luck buying the IWC mounts from Freedom Fighter Tactical. Lately orders directly to IWC have sat in backorder hell until I get tired of waiting and find the parts elsewhere.

  44. I actually put two layers of electrical tape on the top and bottom ejection port edges before each range trip and it eliminates the wear issue. Then again, I'm the guy who puts electrical tape on the ejection hump of my AR's as well to prevent brass streaks, so it's likely that I'm just a nut. I'm waiting for the one member who just got his H20 version to go shoot it a bit to see if he sells it once he sees the "damage" 😂😂😂.
