  1. I dig it. If I have the extra money and they've got all the kit available (I'm curious about how those heat shield and picatinny rails attach) I might grab one to give it a go. I'm not dissatisfied with the setup I have right now, but I wouldn't mind trying something new if it offers better ergonomics.
  2. You know how you change the NRA? You BECOME the NRA. Remember that the NRA is an organization of gun owners. The old guard--our parents and grandparents--is disappearing and the younger generation is coming to power. The generation that grew up and served with M16's and M4's. The folks who see nothing out of the ordinary with 30-round magazines. And, the more who support the ownership and use of "high capacity" magazines who become life members, the sooner the NRA shift will be complete. The members determine the board membership and, by extension, the positions of the NRA. This ain't Bill Ruger's NRA anymore. Sitting on the outside whining about the NRA isn't going to change it. You change from within. By all means, join GOA and SAF/CCRKBA, and any other gun group you can think of that advocates your positions to the governments of this nation. But if you think you'll be better served without the NRA, you're delusional. The NRA is our best hope to combat gun prohibitionists; and if you want them to espouse your positions, you best get on board and steer the ship.
  3. Never seen that before. I suppose it might be to limit the magazine capacity in such a way as it could not be expanded later.
  4. Oh, would you look at that. That seems odd and pointless. I wonder if it is to satisfy some country's import laws. (ETA: Or maybe some state's laws ...)
  5. Yeah, I was going to tell you it was Russian. The original video has two Russian soldiers in the background.
  6. I'm not posting as often. I'm an M4 guy, so hunting and "sport" guns don't have much interest to me. As for the M4, now that most folks know where to get compliance parts, there are fewer questions to address on these forums. I could get into M3 discussions, but ... I don't see much about it. It seems to be flying low on the radar.
  7. Price is high, but I'm sure it's a solid piece. If I didn't already have an M4, I'd consider getting one. (Or maybe not. It don't know. That price is really high. If I could find it under $2000--and didn't already have an M4--it would be hard to pass up.) It certainly would have saved a lot of effort collecting compliance parts over the past couple years.
  8. I think they consider aluminum cans assault weapons ... But God bless you for staying there. Someone has to fight to good fight.
  9. New writeup with a couple photos from The Firearm Blog. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2012/01/24/benellis-new-civilian-legal-m4/
  10. Trying to find the video from SHOT, but in it, the speaker said that the shotgun was going to be assembled in the US and would have the requisite US-made components to make it 922r-compliant; and they they will only be able to manufacture, at most, about 1000 units per year ... I don't know; my memory could be fuzzy. Here it one video mentioning "remanufacturing," but not the one I'm thinking of: http://www.youtube.com/user/Sturmgewehre#p/u/2/V-S1cUs10Jw
  11. What's this? [ATTACH=CONFIG]1255[/ATTACH] http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2012/01/robert-farago/new-from-benelli-m4-h2o-shotgun-treated-with-np3/#more-94593
  12. I cannot speak on the model M1014 regarding the actual magazine configuration; but if it uses an extension, it will screw off the magazine tube just the same as the M4 Tactical's dummy magazine extension. The M4 Tactical and M1014 use the same magazines. As for mixed 2.75 and 3-inch shells, yes. No adjustment is needed. I haven't run mixed shells, but it should work fine.
  13. I don't know if I'd call this soldier a "REMF" or "clusterf_ck", but his weapon handling was definitely poor. The first thing I picked up on was that he was riding the bolt home with the charging handle. That's a good way to cause a malfunction. And if you're doing that, what else are you doing (or not doing) to the carbine? His shouldering was inconsistant too. My guess is that, since he's not taking his weapon manipulation seriously, he's probably not taking his weapon maintenance seriously either. I don't know the guy, but I'd probably want to drill him if I had to share a fighting hole with him. On the other hand, I'm just a salty old Marine veteran who doesn't have to fight over in the 'stan, so it is easy for me to sit here on my computer and critique.
