  1. It's gungrabbers' language intended to prevent/discourage "the people" (us plebs) from "assembling" an "assault weapon" (whatever that is, I've got plenty of assault weapons in my kitchen and on my work bench in my shop) from that which is not *regarded* as an "assault weapon" (i.e. a shotgun with a magazine of five rounds or less, as if three extra rounds in the magazine makes any real difference).
  2. The Aimpoint Micro RDS are virtually indestructible. Daniel Defense blew up a DD M4 with a T1 mounted on it using 27# of Tannerite. The T1 ended up with a broken rear lens yet it still held zero. Then they dropped it out of a helicopter - TWICE (they forgot to turn the camera on the first time so they had a do-over). Only after the helicopter drops did the T1 really lose zero. The Micro on a A.R.M.S. #31 mount is pretty low profile on the Benelli M4, plus the A.R.M.S. mount doesn't chew up the Benelli rail like the Larue.

  3. Head to head #4 buck against the Flite Control you will be disappointed, however it's a compromise when you're concerned about who or what is immediately downrange. #4 buck is going to dissipate energy at a much shorter distance than any 00 buck. Which is why I like 000 buck for a little more range although 000 buck won't hold a pattern like Flite Control, it's still retains sufficient energy albeit it spread out. Flite Control in 00 buck is about as good as it gets for buckshot.
  4. 00 buck (.33 caliber) will shred sheetrock at close range without losing a whole lot of energy (i.e. retaining enough energy to do some serious damage to living tissue) which is why I suggested #4 buck (.24 caliber). 00 buck will still be deadly after passing through two layers of sheet rock, #4 buck not so much. You may not get the very tight and consistent pattern without the Flite Control wads, however I understood your intention was to mitigate possible downrange collateral damage and #4 buck will accomplish that for you. Those awesome Flite Control rounds (one of my faves) retain energy very well downrange which is why I keep #4 buck as an option on tap so as to mitigate possible harm to my neighbors should I have to do some varmint control outside (you know what kind of varmints I'm referring to, the dangerous ones always in season).
  5. You won't find one. Definitely stick with the Benelli OEM C stock. A magazine follower is a simple addition for a 922(r) item, some other suggestions are US made fire control parts and trigger housing. Unsure which forend you're referring to.
  6. Call Benelli customer service and have them take a look at it.
  7. You can generally find the ammo you're looking for at www.ammoseek.com . I'm partial to Federal's 000 buck even though it's not Flite Control and I can generally only find 000 buck in cases on ammoseek. And I did a net search for 'T shot' - it's .20 caliber steel shot according to what I found (not on Hevi's website). #4 buck of course is .24 caliber. No wonder they jack it up with plenty of powder charge.
  8. I checked out Hevi-Shot's Dead Coyote. Kinda thin on info on their website but I did see they list the MV at 1,350 FPS. WTH is "T shot"??? They list "T shot" and 00 buck in 3" and up shells - seems like a limit on mag capacity. I cannot see anywhere on their website where they explain what "T shot" is. I was thinking from your OP you were wanting to tone it down due to the possibility of collateral damage. Federal lists their #4 buck at 1,100 FPS. I would suggest sticking to the tried and true as opposed to some exotic ammo. https://www.federalpremium.com/shotshell/premium-slug-buckshot/vital-shok-buckshot/11-P158+4B.html
  9. One option is #4 buck in 2 3/4". Much less effective range than 00 and sheet rock really taxes #4 buck's energy.
  10. Gen 2 since Gen 1 have flicker problems and you have to buy an aftermarket sealing plate to remedy that. My personal preference would be a 6.5 MOA dot on a shotgun, a larger dot makes for faster acquisition on a shotgun. 6.5 MOA = 3.25" at 50 yards. And I actually prefer a Aimpoint Micro in 4 MOA since the RMR distorts the moment a droplet of water gets on it and is therefore not an all weather device, imo.
  11. It appears 922(r) only applies to the act of assembly into a configuration, not the configuration itself, so would not apply to a factory LE model since done by the importing manufacturer (prior to importation). An LE version is exempt from 922(r). Stupidest nonsense ever.
  12. I have to wonder why they think it necessary to remove so much.
  13. We can thank Bush I, Mr. New Whirled Odor himself.
  14. If you're wanting an OEM style forend, then here ya go - https://freedomfightertactical.com/collections/benelli-m4-tactical-shotgun-parts-and-accessories/products/the-freedom-fighter-tactical-922-compliant-forend-for-the-benelli-m4-shotgun-black
  15. I bought the two I had at two different times and they were both different in how they were stamped 'US', in both size of stamp and location.
  16. Purely supply and demand, which is completely sporadic and unpredictable. Best source is www.benelliparts.net but I see he's gone up 33% on his C-stock price since the end of last year. The one I sold this past January was like new off a safe queen and it took me a while to sell it at $265 shipped. At the peak demand/shortage about 8-9 years ago C-stocks were selling on gunjoker for up to $800. I see that benelliparts.net currently shows C-stocks available currently for $399. I seriously doubt you're going to find them any cheaper at this point. Owner of benelliparts.net is a forum member here who many forum members have done business with, he's a good guy to deal with.
  17. Another great product from Shooting Sight. Thanks Art! ETA: How about some badass charging handles for the M4 while you're at it??
  18. I'm pretty sure I have one. I will check. ETA: I do have one. You have my contact info.

    M1 RMR

    Sorry, I meant rail. Any rail that fits the M2 or M4 should work.

    M1 RMR

    Of course it is. Take it to your gunsmith to have the receiver drilled and tapped for a mount.
  21. I recall seeing some C-stocks selling for $800 on gunjoker.
  22. I half-jokingly posted that I would part with my CC charging handle. Sure, I would sell it for $500 but I doubt anyone is willing to pay that for a charging handle (got the idea from Unobtanium's post). I took a look at what Benelli offers in the way of charging handles for the M4 on the Benelli website. Three are listed, and it appears only the OEM style has the detents on the end of the shank, the other two are milled 360 degrees so therefore those will spin in place. I don't have a FFT charging handle to compare, but based on the photos of the FFT charging handle on their website it appears FFT has the same profile of the OEM detents on the shank of their charging handle. Perhaps someone who has a FFT charging handle can verify this.
