  1. Oh no! Look what arrived via UPS this evening. Do I start drinking before or after the attempted swap-out? It's hard to tell from the photo, but it is a Noveski.

  2. A tip for cleaning the pistons. Soak them in Motorcraft carburetor cleaner. The liquid, not the spray. The carbon is dissolved in a few hours, wipes clean with a paper towel.

  3. It took me less than 1/2 hour. Easy, IMO, with the Stranger Danger instructions. Just my humble additions....... My concern was using the heatgun “inside” of the plastic stock. No issues but I only used the gun for about 20 seconds each time and checked to make sure the plastic wasn’t softening. Probably worried about nothing. My vice is holding another project right now so I gave it a shot just holding the stock between my knees and had no issues. Vice grips worked fine for holding the stud to loosen the slave nut. No marring to the stud. I used an

  4. Look up A&S Engineering trigger frames. They’re beautifully machined aluminum. The ejector is pretty easy. When the bolt travels rearward with the shell hooked on the extractor claw, the rim of the case makes contact with the ejector which directs it out the ejection port. Being spring loaded reduces wear and tear on the shotgun since it isn’t hitting an unmovable part. The ARGO system sounds more complex than it is. You saw the two ports from the barrel. Each port feeds the gas chamber of the ARGO system for each piston. The piston sits free floating in the system. Wit

  6. I have been lurking and learned a lot since purchasing my M4 a few months ago. Today I installed one of SOCOMguy’s (of this forum) 7 round mag tube today. When I first got a hold of him he had several black ready to roll out the door. I wanted to match my Titanium Cerakote, so he had a custom coating done and the color match is PERFECT. I just wanted to post a few pics so anyone looking at their options can see what it looks like installed. The install went smooth, thanks to being prepped with information found here. I also added the FFT forends and follower for 922R compliance. I think i

  7. Yesterday after about two hours of fitting forearms my M4 was completed and finally brought to life. Or, brought back to life I should say! It's been a 10 month process with a lot of ups and downs. These downs ended up having me reassemble the entire M4 essential on my own. NP3 plated in and out and many aftermarket upgrades. I certainly learned a lot and know much more about this platform than I ever did. StrangerDanger and Vertcofiremarms were sounding boards throughout my journey and that was very much appreciated. I want to put out what an awesome individual Stranger Dan

  8. Scalarworks is sending out the missing 4 parts today. They were very helpful and responsive. You know, any company can hit a bump in the road - it's how they respond that shows their character. In this instance, I could not ask for anything more.

  9. Thanks for the excellent instructions! I just finished installing one of SOCOMguy’s high quality 7-shot magazine tubes (and a new spring and 922(r) follower - and these instructions were invaluable. I wish everything in life went as smoothly...

  10. Nice job Shekkie and most grateful thanks to Benelliwerks and Strangerous Dave. A few things to add to your most excellent range/garage report: 1) A 13mm 8/1.0mm nut must not be the industry standard. I really wanted a nylon lock nut but neither Lowes or Home Depot had them. They did have plenty of 8/1.25mm stuff. I did manage to pick up a 4-pack of regular 8/1.0 mm nuts that worked just fine on reassembly....now what do I do with them? On another note, I didn't see a lot of inventory on their shelves; lots of empty holes...my first reality check that COVID has hit the manufactu

  12. I would suggest getting a shorter fixed stock (Mesa Tactical) rather than the adjustable. The 7 round tube is a must and you may want to add an extension (+2 or +3). Before getting into other mods, we would need to know: What are you going to use the gun for? (Home protection, 3-gun competition, or just a Tacti-cool plinker)

  13. wolff spring is wolff spring....CC provided wolff spring is probably just precut for the length of their mag tube. If you bought a fresh spring, it's meant to be cut. Spring should be should be about 12-18" past the magazine. Cut the excess. I'd start out on the higher end (18") of that and trial and error cut till you can get the number of rounds in your magazine properly. If you cut too low, you won't get the spring strength and run into feed issue.

  14. You can gauge how close you are when trying to insert the 7th round. Feel or look to see how close that round is to seating. If half the shell is sticking out, chances are you cannot safely trim the spring short enough to permit that much more of the shell to compress. A quarter inch is doable. If you trim too much spring, you can end up with a situation where the spring isn’t strong enough to reliably eject shells onto the elevator. Particularly the last round in the magazine tube. The last round will have the weakest spring tension of all the rounds. My favorite spring is

  20. A&S guard: https://www.briley.com/p-61125-as-enhanced-trigger-guard-benelli-breda-franchi.aspx As I understand it, Briley basically bought out their entire inventory. Additionally, if you buy their trigger, they'll assembled everything for you free if charge.

  21. I have encountered a FFT set that did not ‘drop in’ to the A&S frame recently. The hammer would hang up on the disconnector. It only requires a light amount of filing to get the clearance needed on the hammer/disconnector side of the sear. Dozens of others I’ve done this past year have been perfect and dropped right in. Luck of the draw I suppose.

  22. Perfect, thank you. Just have been consumed with my son and his trap team, and all the accoutrement (e.g $$$) that comes with it. Finally got a breather, and figure it would tackle the trigger.

  23. That’s about it. the A&S housing is phenomenal, I have the FFT trigger parts as well as a Geissele hammer. Just have to get the time and patience to install the bits in the housing

  24. Best to contact Scalarworks. There should have been three small bags with the mounting hardware marked A,B and C.

  25. Double check your box, the appropriate mounting accessories have should been inside. Purchased the same for my 11707 and came as advertised. The packages are small, and scalar works packs in 50 items, like stickers, within th case. Fasteners #6-32x0.4375" flat-head (Nylok® treated, torqued @ 15in*lbs), #8-40x0.25" flat-head (Nylok® treated), #8-40x0.20" captive

  26. I own a M1014 with several FFT parts installed including FFT's NP3 trigger kit. My NP3 trigger kit resides in an A&S Trigger/Frame. As many have described in this "disconnector fails to re-set" thread- after installing the FFT and A&S assemblies, the disconnector would hang up on its mated catch-tang on the hammer after a round was fired. The hammer re-set after the round was fired, but stayed in the far-down position, captured by the disconnector after the trigger was released. The fix was relatively easy if one is competent in the use of tools; familiar with the dis-assembly

  27. All my years of shooting the M16/AR has pushed me toward pistol grips. Except my 870, have a MagPul on it. Forgot about the Browning BPS, it’s has the “English stock” on it

  28. I love the adjustable stock on my AR but it just feels wrong on a shotgun. I guess too many years of using an 870 ruined me and anything else feels “off”. I got mine a few days ago and am ready to start cursing as I begin the install this morning.

  31. There is now 1 less in-stock at Optics Planet! I've seen SD's tutorial on replacing the sling plate before and I was confused. Reviewed it again this morning along with Benelliwerks' manual before I purchased. I think I'm now ready to tackle the job. Just need to pick-up a 13mm 8mm x 1.0mm pitch locking nut (slave nut) to get the job done.

  33. Thanks for spending $50 of my money this morning! I have been looking for a solution to my rear sling mount dilemma and can’t believe this was the first time I saw this option. Perfect!

  34. The frame counts as a compliance part as well as the trigger, hammer and disconnector. So you’ve got four parts in the bag with this swap. Magazine tube and magazine follower and you have a bit of breathing room.

  35. 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
