    It looks like someone posted the official method back in 2011. This method is actually in the USMC manual for the M1014, though is omitted from the civilian Benelli M4 manual. See attached for photos of the relevant pages from the USMC manual.

    The "tactical" version has the standard carrier. I probably went through 7 or 8 shotgun courses over the years with the standard carrier and never got thumb bite during a course. The only time I ever had an issue with catching my thumb was when I was just farting around on my on at the range. Over the last few years I changed most of them out to Taran Tactical versions. Just because. If you use the proper technique, you shouldn't have any problem with the OEM version.

    You are not distributing firearm parts. ou are conducting a private sale to some one old enough to own a shotgun. Like DC Dog said, was the individual a Lawyer? or just someone who stayed at a Holiday Inn Express ?

    I'd look into the IWC mount. It's solid lightweight and rides close to the shotgun. You don't need any specialized tailcaps to make it fit either. Price wise it is probably the cheapest option out there too. I always found I wanted to activate the light with my support hand thumb. So I don't see it being comfortable to mount the tape switch at the rear of the handguard. The Hayl positions were decent, they landed under where my thumb would naturally sit on the handguard. That mounting system is a deal breaker though.

    I got one in great condition. $285 shipped in the lower 48 States. Pm with your email address for actual pictures

    Not a fan of the MLOK mount placements. You don’t want the mounted item right where your hand will be. The Hayl rail had better positioning, but its set screw interface was worse than cancer.

    No worries....it's not uncommon at all to have to do minor fitting with stocks even OEM. They are after all, a moulded item and not CNC machined. Yes, either a blade or even more controlled, is sandpaper wrapped around a small wood block or similar and go slowly remove a little bit of material at a time from the part that curves around the back of the trigger housing following it's curves. Check frequently until the trigger housing will seat fully into the receiver and the pin will latch through without using excessive force.

    Hi, are you talking about the pin that secures the trigger group in the receiver not lining up after screwing the stock on? If so, sometimes you have to shave a little bit of plastic off of the the part of the stock that curves around the back of the trigger housing to get a fit. It doesn't allow the trigger group to fully seat into the receiver. I had to do this when I changed the oem trigger housing to an A&S aftermarket housing.

    Does the newer Vinci have the "Speed Bolt" feature? "The Speed Bolt system incorporates a special, high density tungsten insert to make cycling even faster and to give excellent performance even with low shot loads. " https://www.benelli.it/en/products/semiautomatic-shotguns/vinci/vinci-speed-bolt

    The pin only comes out from one direction. You drive out the pin by inserting a flat tip punch into the hole opening that only allows you to see a portion on the pin's diameter-in other words your punch will contact about ½ of the edge of the pin's end

    The M1014 I picked up had extremely heavy lead fouling from firing slugs. So I used a stainless tornado brush on a shotgun rod inserted into a cordless drill while using lead bore cleaner. It took a while but I finally got the very last of the lead out of the bore. I would think that your results would happen much sooner if all you have is plastic wad fouling.

    Been gone a while. Back to necromance this thread for Les Garten- You can run that elzetta with some bicycle inner tube around the tailcap of your Bravo.Torqe a pound or two extra. The tailcap is tapered and scallopped so back it out towards the stock a bit beforehand.The innertube fills the gaps and gives more surface area engagement. I also added friction tape to the under side of the mount where it interfaced with the barrell.Mines been hanging tough for a couple yrs and hasn't budged in the first AVA mount...and I shoot the m4 quite a bit. I believe elzetta machined the lights for their mount or vice versa. Either way this setup is viable.Good Luck Les

    Dude, I think it's been made clear here that there aren't guys field stripping M4's at gun ranges to determine 922r compliance. It's an addon FELONY. Did you hear the word FELONY? Could be a misdemeaner, but I'll bet when it's compounded with whatever else, it would be a FELONY. So when the Gubment is nailing your hide to the wall for the primary offence, they can get bonus points for an illegal gun charge. SCORE! They put Freakin' Martha Stewart in prison for God's sake. Who are you? You want to play with BATF? That's your business and ya takes ya chances. But if I was gonna play that game? I wouldn't be shooting my mouth off about it on the Internet... That's just bad playin' technique in my opinion.

    That ultralight would be pretty punishing with turkey loads--so fair warning. For a budget hunter, i'd recommend you pick up an old M1 Super 90 or an old Super Black Eagle (I, not II). I've got 5 M1s and 1 SBE, as well as a Montefeltro (about the same as the ultralight, just a little heavier. It's a great upland gun), a Benelli M4, and a cordoba. If you're on the lookout, you can pick 'em up in pretty good shape for anywhere between $500 and $800, and they're damn near the same as the newer guns. The main difference is that they don't have the comfortech stock. Honestly, I shoot my M1s more often than my Cordoba, just because they're not as loud and it's tough wearing earplugs (yes, it's that loud) and trying to hear the ducks/geese coming in. Anywhere in the 24" to 28" barrel length will suffice for the type of hunting you're talking about, but i prefer longer barrels.

    Searching through, I have found I guess you identify it through the barrel, about on top of the piston there will be holes, Mine has 2 holes, so its a 2 port I guess

    HetWayne pro Shotshell ammo is rated 3" based on its length when the hull is empty not with a charge in it. This is why your shells measure up a little short

    slu_med, There IS not going to be a class action suit, so just drop it. And I doubt there are many Benelli fans that will boycott them. I won't. You should also know it's not a rifle, it's a SHOTGUN. Yes it was expensive. I apparently paid more than you, but that's not the point. The point is we should be lobbying Benelli to sell the appropriate recoil spring tube. If they won't then perhaps some machinists will. I have a lead on two. Considering Benelli already produces the part, it's easy money for them to make some extra and sell them for an unseemly profit. [ 09-30-2004, 07:09 PM: Message edited by: dport ]
