  1. Can anyone point me to a contact at Benelli so I can order a collapsible stock for my M4 ?
  2. Maybe you should go back and look at your sent emails then, because YOU contacted me via PM and offered to sell it to me for $600.00. You even directed me specifically to the Big Game board. Good luck with your uh-hem...sale. Thank you Sir.
  3. Thanks for the reply, but there is no way I'd pay $600.00 for a black barrel that has been cut down, when I can get an OEM camo barrel from Benelli with both sights included for $560.00. I'd give you $450.00 for just the barrel and that is against my better judgement.

    M3 or the M4

    Now I only have one, the M4. Personal choice. Which ever you prefer and are the most proficient with should be your determining factor. The M4 is tuff to beat at any rate.
  5. Anybody got a line on these ? Price ? I would like to pick one up before deer season.
  6. Yeah, for some reason Benelli made some minor changes to the 18.5" barrel. My M4 is the LE model and when they made the barrel changes they were supposed to update the foreends as well. Some got out of the retail locations without the updated forends and if you call CS and give them your serial number they can tell if the retailer did or did not receive the updated forends. George said that it looked like my serial number range was supposed to have been changed out. When I told him what it was doing, he said the retailer must not have called about the update so it didn't get corrected. Anyway, he took my info and put a new set in the mail for me, no charge. They didn't ask for the old set back either.
  7. I just dropped an email to Customer Service. I was having a problem getting the forend of my Benelli M4 to come together and I called Benelli and spoke with George Thompson of your C.S. Dept. George was a great help and gave me some insight into the problem He also took my information down and is sending me the correct forearm part for my gun. Keep up the great work guys. This just confirms with me that I did the right thing when I bought my Benelli SBE II and my Benelli M4. Cudo's to all.
  8. Time for homework Jr.......You better do a little research on your last comment. The .22cal bullet is one of the most deadly rounds in the history of firearms.
  9. Boy, that is a question that may never be answered. Like everyone else, I can only offer an opinion. One of the other posters probably hit the nail on the head. No experience dealing with a real world situation such as this. Think about this if you have kids, and I have three, one in college and two in high school. What would your kids have done ? I know for a fact that my children have an edge over some kids the same age because their father is a police officer. They have been with me at times in my marked police unit when I have been obligated to take police action. WE have rehearsed what to do. Time permitting, I drop them off at a well lit location before doing anything, but sometimes it happens too fast. They were all taught to run away from the police vehicle the moment the vehicle stops. But this, this was totally different. My kids may very well have done the same thing as some of the kids who have already told their accounts of this tragedy. They tried to hide or lay motionless probably thinking if I don't move he won't know I'm here. They were taken by surprise. They didn't have the benefit of working on a plan of action. Would you want to bum rush an armed suspect to find that you were the only person making a move ? It's just not human nature to rush and active shooter, something that you already know is potential suicide. And what about this ? We actively instruct attendees at our crime watch classes not to resist. If they want your purse or the money from the cash box, don't fight. Remember that ? So what's the solution. I don't know. We train in law enforcement to always be aware of our surroundings and to be weary of those who are close enough to do us harm. It's called being in the red zone. Until i'm satisfied that everything is ok, I stay in a modified form of the red zone even when i'm off duty. Ya ever wonder why that cop looks at you like ya got two heads when you speak to him or approach him unexpectedly. He's probably in the red zone. May they all rest in peace and may whatever higher being they worship give their family members the strength to get through this.

    M4 14 inch barrel

    Do you think Briley could drill and tap a spare Crio barrel for a scope mount ? What is their contact info ?

  12. I purchased both the SBE II and the Beretta Extrema II within the last six months. I love them both. The Beretta came with the kickoff system and it makes shooting those 3.5" monster shells a tad bit easier to handle. If I were forced to pick only one right now, it would be tough to do. Since this is the Benelli forum, I'd probably say I like the Benelli more. They have a different feel. The Benelli being more like a sleek race horse and the Beretta being more like a quarter horse. Like others have said. If you read the manual and do what they tell you to do, to condition the weapon, you should not be disappointed. The only jams or hang-ups with either gun shooting a variety of loads was with the Winchester AA trap loads. They would not cycle in the Benelli and I didn't get to try them in the Beretta. In all candor, I did not expect them to work so it wasn't/isn't an issue right now. I also found a really big difference in comfort when shooting 3" magnum loads. Felt more like a 2.75 bird shot shell....real mild.
  13. M1014, I'll settle for just the barrel right now. I already have the $200.00 tax stamp. Just need to do the paperwork and fork over another $5.00 to ATF......
  14. No bruising, just a little sore from all the pounding between the SBEII and the M4. I was shooting the lowest price Winchester and Remington 3.5 magnum shells I could find at Outdoor World. I think they were 2 and 4 shot mixed in with some Turkey laods. Point well taken about the turkey. I have never been, so this year(end of the month), will be my first trip. I guess I better rethink my strategy. That 3.5 seems like sound advise to me.

    Mudhen, Have you tested any of the new Remington 4 x 6 Turkey loads ?
