  1. I use loctite 243 on every screw not being threaded into helicoil.
  2. I am using Aimpoint. I also am using Surefire scout lights due to their impact buffers. Shotguns are absolutely brutal. Ive torture tested most things with full power buck, and have had to alter how I would normally do things on an AR, for these gauges. I use IWC light mounts. Torque to 30 in lb, and use Loctite 243. I torque the mount to scout body to 20 in lb, using loctite 243. The scalarworks to T2 interface gets NO locker except what nylok is on the SW screws, on account of the T2 using helicoil inserts. The SW to receiver juncture, I torque to 15 in lb, and avain use loctite 243. I de-grease all male and female threads with acetone, and apply loctite to the female threads instead of the male. This is because the first 2 to 4 threads on the tip of the bolt are what do the lion's share of the work. When you loctite the male threads, these are typically wiped near clean of threadlocker dhring the threading process by the time the bolt is seated and tight. I wipe off the excess and allow full 24 hour cure time. This keeps my stuff from rattling off when I run it hard with full power stuff for hundreds of rounds per day. Ive seen enough stuff fall off guns in 5.56 carbine courses. I KNOW there are plenty of gauges out there with stuff just hanging on by a prayer, lol!
  3. For a muzzle device on an SBR length barrel to take it to non-NFA length and be a non-NFA weapon, it must be pinned/welded. Loctite and other adhesives are not satisfactory, per letter of the law. Further, if it's going to be that long anyway, why give up burn-time and sight radius? I think you are doing the functionally/technically/legally sound thing.
  4. Thats nice. Im very tempted to buy one and check it out through night vision. Did you use scalarworks screws, or holosuns, to mount it to the sw mount?
  5. Just to be sure I understand, is it more of a 1/4 co witness, or 3/5 co witness. Like, decently there, or "If i crank the rear sight down it may go away, actually"?
  6. Looks good. What mrds is that? Does it cowitness with irons, or does the window block them?
  7. The OEM trigger guard underwent testing with Aberdeen and did fine. That is why I went with it. It's proven, and was a contract item.
  8. Lol, wow. That be fast. I bet they just found one somewhere while moving stock or something.
  9. Yes...but the Italian one, not the American one that you likely have. He is being 100% technically factual, but functionally, maybe not.
  10. Id like to see bigger glass, thinner housing, if possible.
  11. The Comp M5 was your T3.
  12. I live pretty rural, tiny spiders/bugs/etc. love tiny spaces. I am not at all saying one will fall into/make a nest and you'll be kilt in da hallways, but it is something to consider.
  13. Is there any exposed metal on them askde from the QD swivels? Any chance at all of scratching up cerakoted guns, etc. Just googled a YT video. I wish you could get this without the Jedi Buckle. That releaee nub is just begging to snag gear or underbrush and dump your kit, imo. Probably at the worst moment. Unless Im missing something?
  14. My issue is the open emitter design. On pistols, the violent action of the slide can clear debris or water, etc. The shotgun and rifle, not so much.
  15. My 2017/18 M4 11724 looks exactly like the installed unit.
  16. The bolt seats very early in the cycle. You have significant carrier movement prior to any unlocking/bolt rotation. I agree that it needs to go back to benelli, just wanted to touch on this.
  17. Could the cam pin track im the carrier be machined incorrectly? Thats kindof what this looks like to me.
  18. Do you have pictures of the carrier tip?
  19. Handguards reinforced? Other?
  20. Nevermind. I have cannibalized them. No-longer for sale.
  21. $25/ea. I didnt feel like filing or grinding on my C stock to install this, but if thats your jam, $25/ea shipped conus. Payment via check.
  22. This is Italian. Part of the reason I am keeping my Benelli m4 guns 100% American milspec as far as the functional aspect goes, is because Aberdeen, as kludgy as they are, tested the shit out of it. As a testament to how pedantic they are, the USMC benelli m4 has, to my knowledge, required zero revision in 2 decades. It has undergone a couple of improvements, mainly the barrel extension, and that's it. I want that kind of proven performance.
  23. I hope not, as I'm a whore for the latest and greatest, and don't wanna mess with upgrading, lol! That said, nice find!
