  5. skeletonized stock cheek pad?
  6. I wish I could! That looks awesome. But our 3-gun match rules do not allow compensators or porting of the barrel. [ 02-26-2006, 04:07 AM: Message edited by: jetflyer ]

  8. Sorry to sound negative. I went too far down the "conversion" road untill it became my obsession, instead of enjoying the gun itself. Benelli and the ATF restricted the civilian M1014 too much for me. I should have done more homework before I purchased the M1014 Limited Edition model. The M1014 can also be a very positive experience. And fans there are many. I mearly stated the obstacles for the conversion. Perhaps the knowlegde that I am passing along will spare another buyer like me, the disappointment. To end on a positive note...I am elated with my purchase of the M4/Law Enforcement model!!!! It is the gun, with all the full features that I wanted all along. Due to the difficulty of acquiring an M4 with all the "evils" included, I consider it my crown jewel.

  9. As a previous owner of an M1014, I will relate to you what I encountered... Regrettably, you cannot remove the M1014 recoil tube and replace it with an M4 tube. The M4 tube cannot be purchased as a spare part (to prevent us from converting the M1014 to a collapsible stock weapon). The M1014 recoil tube is "permanently" welded to the receiver with a powdered European version of a "Locktite" compound. Removal of the "welded" tube requires a heat and torque application that will damage the attached aluminum receiver. There is a gunsmith in Florida that will mill your M1014 tube without its removal. However, the dark finish that is on the tube will be ground off. The tube is stainless steel, and Benelli uses a proprietary chemical process that reacts with stainless to give it the dark mil-spec finish. It is NOT Parkerizing, as you might think. Parkerizing does not react with stainless. And the "polyresin" baked finishes wear off at the places of sliding contact. Some NFA rules were not lifted for imported weapons, and the BATF is very sensitive to THIS gun in particular. Benelli took note, and went to great lengths to defeat our attempts to convert the civilian M1014. My desire to own a legal and functioning collapsible stock became an obsession. So, I abandoned my conversion efforts and purchased a true M4. [ 02-25-2006, 10:45 PM: Message edited by: jetflyer ]
  10. Who makes the front sight on the M4? (its not LPA) I am replacing the factory rear ghost ring with an LPA fiber dot ghost ring. I assumed that the factory front sight was made by LPA too. WRONG. The North American LPA distributor told me that only the rear are LPA, and he did not know who makes the front end of the Benelli ghost ring sighting system. Does anyone here know?

  11. How - specifically - do you get the one on the lifter. I have been trying but I guess I don't have the right info yet ... Thanks! Load up 7 in the mag tube, with the bolt CLOSED. Then retract the bolt rearward just enough to drop one on the lifter, and finally one in the chamber. Let the bolt slide shut. The key is to retract the bolt rearward enough to place the shells on the lifter and in the chamber, without reaching the bolt's rear locking position. It's difficult to do with a shot timer running or in competition reloading situation. It is a nice technique to master when you are told to "load and make ready"!
