  1. Southsti, I ordered One some time ago. I did get it. If I remember correctly it took a few days to get it to me. Also, (I did not go throught the thread) is there a phone number for Cleefurd posted on this thread?

    M4 Capacity?

    Any time! How are you liking your M4?

    M4 Capacity?

    Since noone else replied to our question Ill answer. I figured it out while out shooting my M4. You load the tube to max capacity. Then pull the bolt/carrier back far enough to add another round on top of the ramp, or shell carrier. After adding that round, hold the same round so as to clear the bolt/carrier as you move the B/C forward just slightly. Then add another round directly into the chamber. If you have the factory Five round tube you now have 7 shots at the ready. Five in the tube, One on the shell carrier/ramp and One in the tube. If you have the Seven round tube then you have a total of Nine shots at the ready. Make sense?
  4. Cleefurd, I did not get an email stating that the springs were available. Can you send me the info needed to order One? Thanks, Marco.
  5. Just wanted to bump this thread. Is the ETA on the springs still a go? I want One.
  6. I think what you are reffering to is in regards to re-chambering handgun rounds. When chambering handgun rounds it is possible to have the bullet setback due to the contact with the feedramp. This usually only happens when the bullet is not crimped properly. I dont think this could be a problem with shotgun shells but like others mentioned just inspect your ammo for visible signs of wear, cracks bulges etc. Happy shooting.
  7. Just ask the guys in Syria that were on the wrong end of the M4....wait, you can ask them cause they are DEAD. The amount that is lost would never be noticed by you, your shoulder or the bird/bad guy at the other end of your shotgun. Besides that, like the guy above stated. If for some reason a few feet per second difference makes a difference just squeeze off four or five more rounds. I would be willing to wager my M4 that I could bang out 4 shots to his One. I am sure others would agree

    Ammo for M4

    I showed similar results with my M4. I was using the Federal 00 buck full power loads with the "flight control wad" I was shooting a 22" round plate at 50 yards on the dot. All nine pellets struck the plate with only one of the nine out of center mass. There are many different rounds out there that have their claim to fame but I think the federal full power 00 buck flight control are some of the best. Now, with that said. Like mentioned above. For getting the feel of your shotgun pick up the 100 round value pack from wal mart. I first used the Winchester with decent results then bought the Federal with better results. My only problem with either of the rounds were that the last round would not fully feed onto the carrier causing the ramp to pin the shell half way into the tube. I dont think that this is an ammo issue as much as it is my mag spring being too weak to feed the last round. I have a full length Daves Metal Works tube on mine. In the factory configuration you should really be fine with whatever round you choose to feed it. Just remember whatever round you choose when you think you have enough to take out and shoot...double it. Shooting the M4 is like no other shotgun out there. It truely is the most fun of any shotgun I have ever shot. Have fun and give us a range report!
  9. How/where do we place our orders and what payment do you accept?
  10. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your wife and daughter. To stay in the game after such a loss takes a determined soul. Thank you, Marco.
  11. does anyone know where we can get one of the carrier comp springs? I checked Wolff's website and dont see anything listed there. Anyone have a part number.
  12. I am a bit disapointed that Benelli uses sub-par materials in such a high end shotgun. The springs are relatively inexpensive so it seems to me why not upgrade the materials, tempering etc. etc. To have a malfunction is to be expected in ANY weapon platform. It can and eventually will happen. But to have malfunctions on a regular basis from a weapon right out of the box with no cure other than to replace a component (mag spring) with an aftermarket replacement is unexceptable. I think Benelli should step up to the plate and offer a better spring that does not compress like what we are seeing. I have had 30 round AR mags loaded for years on end with no noticable loss in performance. Anyway, I am in the same boat and would like to have a shotgun that will unload all the rounds, from the first to the last.
  13. How about a link to your site or an email address.
  14. What luck have you guys een that are using the Wolff springs? I am seeing the last rounds jam too. I am using the D.M.W.'s One piece full length tube with the spring that comes with it. I am going to use the factory Benelli spring and see if that cures it. I have also noticed that it only jams when I use field load. When I use Federal full power 00 buck it runs perfect. Maybe the field loads are short stroking slightly and that is causing the jams?
  15. I was only asking because some M4's seem to come with the snap ring seal and some did not. I was just trying to determine if this part was excluded from the newer M4's.
  16. Couple of questions about the M4...Did you put the mag tube on and did you replace the spring seal/keeper that was under the mag cap?
  17. You rock. Call me lazy...or...I just didnt think to use the search function. Damn me...damn me to ****. (CH)
  18. Is there a date/year production code stamped on our shotguns. I have an M4 that I just picked up. I bought this private party. I was told that it has never been fired (aside from factory test fire) I can see that it has been fired but I do not see any wear on it. I am just wondering how new the gun is. Thanks.
  19. Ill use the AR 15 as an example. On the rear of the buffer there is a small rubber "knob" that is desinged to lessen the impact of the buffer when the weapon is fired. On the Benelli there seems to be "metal to metal" contact as the carrier moves all the way to te rear when cycled by hand. Buffer Technologies offers aftermarket buffers for some firearms to help lessen this impact when firing. Case in point. My Ruger 10/22 used to do this. I replaced the factory rear pin with a rubber coated rear pin. Belive it or not it is much smoother and quiter to shoot.
  20. I just picked up my Benelli M4 from my dealer. I noticed that when I cycle the bolt/carrier all the way to the rear that it makes a rather loud/noticable contact with the reciever. I know this is most likely normal. Do you notice this on yours? Does anyone make a buffer to lessen the impact of these Two components? TIA, Marco.
  21. One more thing to think about. Ethanol was introduced in part to reduce emission by way of neutral carbon emssions. What is ******** is that "they" dont say anything about the increased truck traffic, increased diesel consumption being burned by trucks that transport Ethanol. And not to mention the increased petro chemicals that are needed to grow the corn. And lets not forget the damage to our rivers and streams from all the runoff from these crops. There is no perfect replacement for petro fuels but until the crude oil in the ground becomes far too expensive to extract from the ground we will continue to use it.

    M4 Capacity?

    What is the carrier? You mean a side shell carrier? And what is ghost loading?
  23. Keep in mind that refineries reduce the octane on the base gasoline so that when adding ethanol the octane rating hits the target number. Now if they left the original ocatane rating of the base gasoline then added the Ethanol that would be a different story.
