    Where to Sell?

    javven, How about on-line at: 1. GunsAmerica: http://www.gunsamerica.com/catlist.cgi?type=shotguns or at 2. FirearmsAmerica http://www.firearmsamerica.com/sell/ or 3. GunBroker.com - http://www.gunbroker.com/ Hope that helps, Tacman
  2. StarLynx , The other difference I have heard is that the M1014 has a thicker barrel than the M4... Stay safe, Tacman
  3. Standard model M4 will come with IC, M, F chokes; M1014 does not - it is the military barrel in modified without screw in chokes. The military barrel is thicker and meant for the variety of ammo used in military / tactical situations and the thicker barrel will likely hold up better to large number of rounds per session without over-heating. No time there to be messing with chokes for the most part in this scenario - just feed and shoot... Interesting that the M1014 is almost 6" longer than the M4 despite the same barrel length in the non-collapsible stock version (from website specs). Co
  4. Try this web-site for oil options: http://hunting.about.com/cs/guncleanrev/. I use the Pro-tec and it is really good. The syringe applicator works exceptionally welll and keeps you from over-oiling. I understand the Militec-1 is also very good and one of these days I will try that. Good luck, Tacman
  5. HI5-O, Have you purchased any of the Gunners Choice chokes from Brownell's? Which ones and do they work well? Which choke did you receive with the M1 Practical that will work with the Benelli-supplied compensator? Thanks, Tacman
  6. TH3, Don't know the length officially, but sounds like you need a new spring. A recent American Handgunner article stated that the biggest action to cause shortened spring life is to stretch springs as you did. Your "pull" is likely only a temporary remedy. Stay safe, Tacman
  7. greybeardjac, According to Benelli - A Cylinder choke is recommended for shooting rifled slugs in a smooth bore barrel. Sabot slugs should be shot through our fully-rifled slug barrels. Interested if Benelli customer service says any different. You may want to try them or keep with the Benelli guidance... Stay safe, Tacman

    bolt arm

    Try to twist it before turning it. Sometimes you need to twist it a bit, give it a tug, try a small twist (90 degrees each time) and tug again. Hope that helps... Tacman
  9. Model is Super Black Eagle, M1, M4, etc. Serial number is the obvious other one. Benelli will figure it out if you do not... Stay safe... Tacman
  10. 10mikeymike, The Practical compensator attaches to a choke which your M1 would need to have to accommodate. The choke is "special" in that it has threads on the outside of the choke (once it is screwed into the barrel) that accept the compensator. The parts are likely purchased separately from a Benelli dealer, but that can be like pulling teeth. Find a good strong volume Benelli dealer and ask them to order it. The Benelli European Website has detailed manuals with parts numbers and you can specify English - what a concept!. Good luck. Tacman [ 10-19-2003, 09:16 PM: Message edi
  11. Scatterton, What did you mean by, "Well since customer service doesn't want to answer my message"... Had you tried Benelli directly via phone? Good luck on your problem - try a little penetrating oil to help it out, too... Tacman

    David, Try this site for basics: http://www.angelfire.com/tx/ShotGun/INFO/AllOutdoors/choke_tubes_r.html Do a Google search on shotgun choke tube function and read up - you will understand more in no time. Stay safe... Tacman
  13. Like our friend M1014, I too own the M4 and have also been looking at the M3. The lure of "just one more Benelli" and all that... My thinking is that simpler is better and there are more things to malfunction on a dual purpose gun, so buy it after you have a dependable single purpose one you are in love with, but that's me. Could be you get the M3 and never want another. Part of the decision is what you will be shooting. Do you anticipate the lighter loads that will require the pump action? Do you train for tactical situations where the pump might be preferred by some instructors / tech
  14. SF, Super 90 is a designation given to a whole series of Benelli's including the Montefeltro, M1, M3, M4. The best explanation is found on the European website: http://www.benelli.it/Storia/ Here is the euro site home address in english if it get confusing: http://www.benelli.it/Home.asp E-mail the moderators where to get the gun or check the dealer locater on the sites. By the way, in the US, the gun is sold with the folding stock but it does not fold! Has to do with our assault weapons laws and having a pistol grip and other features at once. If you notice the euro ver
  15. I hit targets with slugs at 100 yards and that is plenty for my tactical purposes. I don't plan to engage at distances farther than that with a shotgun. I would switch to my AR. I also own the M1 Practical and that is a great gun, too - a lot longer barrel with increased capacity in the mag. Will get you more range and velocity, but harder to deploy tactically because of the longer barrel. I looked at lots of optics and decided to get a Hakko for now. Japanese company that makes the ACOGs for Trijicon at a more reasonable price. I got the single power BED-24 with multiple reticles
  16. Shotgun Freak, I have the M1014 (M4 limited edition) and LOVE it. It is versatile, works across various loads, and is accurate as heck. It is a great tactical gun for me and I enjoy using it at the range or in tactical training / deployment. My next step is to try some new optics on it for faster target acquisition. You would enjoy this one if you buy it. Get a good tactical sling and enjoy! Stay sfae, Tacman

    DMC46, A coouple of suggestions on handling recoil: 1. make sure your bend of the elbow is at 90 degrees to your body to create a deep "pocket" at your shoulder and make sure you mount the gun firmly in the fleshy part of that pocket on your chest muscle (not on the collar bone!) 2. try a Browning Reactar Shooting Harness - It has a 5mm thick, lightweight Beta Gel that forms to your body in the harness or you can buy an individual pad to sew in clothes. It claims to reduce peak recoil by up to 30 percent. Heree is a link with both. Note, the harness already includes a pad. http://www
  18. Shotgunner, Try the Blue Book of Gun Values: http://www.gunshop.com/blubook1.htm Happy hunting at the auction. Tacman
  19. SBEM3. What's the trick for 3 shell to go to 4? Stay Safe, Tacman
  20. reconabe, Try CQB - http://www.cqbsolutions.com/index.html . Their products are great. I have the SOP Universal and it is a dream. The wider web is very comfortable. They are also available through Botach. Stay safe, Tacman

    Tactical Optics

    Anyone have experiences they want to share about tactical optics for an M1 or M1014? ACOG, Leupold, Aimpoint, Trijicon, others? Any preferences or things you really like or really hate? Stay safe, Tacman
  22. Paolo, New Benellis need the break in period to go from smooth to really smooth. Have patience. And pay attention to the loads as Flattop says. Benellis just do not like light loads and will not cycle properly if you are too light. Hope you enjoy it. Stay safe, Tacman
  23. Here is another option from GGG: http://www.gggaz.com/products/benelli.php Stay Safe, Tacman

    Treeman, Thanks for the BC-CAM tip - looks great. When I decide what optic, I will likely get one. Appreciate the tip. There is just so much out there, especially with the AR... Let me know how the 3 gun goes. Interested in your feedback. SHoot well. Stay safe. Tacman

    Rescue 14, I have the Insight Technologies M3 with tactical LED on my M1014 mounted to a 1" ring that attaches to the tube extension. The light is nice and lightweight and has built-in shock isolation. It is 90+ lumens for 60 minutes in standard bulb. The tactical light is nice at night to keep your night vision - it switches between two strengths and comes in blue, red, white, green, IR, or UV options. If you go with a Surefire (very good product too looks like that is what M1014 has), the 6P (600) line is the classic choice. They are 65 lumens for 60 minutes standard bulb or 120
