  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.
  14. Good luck, Tuck, in your future endeavors. Thanks for your participation and input on this forum. I appreciate your contributions.
  15. GG&G: http://www.gggaz.com/benelli-tactical-bolt-release-pad.html I'm running with a Celtic Mist (CMM) bolt release pad I got from TacticalShotgunner.com; but it doesn't appear that they carry them anymore. Too bad as hey were significantly cheaper.
  16. Never seen one. It would be cool--like the wood laminate stocks for AR15's--but I'm not certain that there is a significant market for them. I would also have some doubts about the durability of a wood forend stock for the M4.
  17. Very nice. Now what are you going to do with that thing? (And which part is DMW?)

    You make a good case for non-applicability to NFA items. I hope you're right. It all seems nonsensical to me ... ETA: Just so our discussion is transparent, 925(d)(3) says: (3) is of a type that does not fall within the definition of a firearm as defined in section 5845(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and is generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes, excluding surplus military firearms, except in any case where the Attorney General has not authorized the importation of the firearm pursuant to this paragraph, it shall be unlawful to import any frame, receiver, or barrel of such firearm which would be prohibited if assembled And section 5845 of the Internal Revenue Code says: For the purpose of this chapter - (a) Firearm The term ''firearm'' means (1) a shotgun having a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length; (2) a weapon made from a shotgun if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length; (3) a rifle having a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length; (4) a weapon made from a rifle if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length; (5) any other weapon, as defined in subsection (e); (6) a machinegun; (7) any silencer (as defined in section 921 of title 18, United States Code); and (8) a destructive device. The term ''firearm'' shall not include an antique firearm or any device (other than a machinegun or destructive device) which, although designed as a weapon, the Secretary finds by reason of the date of its manufacture, value, design, and other characteristics is primarily a collector's item and is not likely to be used as a weapon.

    You might want to double-check that. While a lot of people think that making the firearm an NFA device will exempt them from import restriction laws, nobody has provided proof of this. As far as I can tell, 922® doesn't have any provision that exempts registered NFA items. The text of 922® only provides exemption if: (1) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for sale or distribution by a licensed manufacturer to the United States or any department or agency thereof or to any State or any department, agency, or political subdivision thereof; or (2) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Attorney General. Granted, 922® is, as you so eliquently put it, "nonsense"; so I might not have a good grasp on its provisions.
  20. Oooo-kay. Now that Rocket has been thoroughly flogged: I haven't got a stock forend stock for sale (I'm keeping mine) but I am running with a FFT forend. The finish is great. The fit is not so great, but it is serviceable. There is some movement in there which may cause a creaking or cracking sound if the forend is squeezed a certain way. It doesn't bother me, but a fellow with a grip like Superman might find that it creaks too much for his liking. It is the cheapest option out there if you want to modify your M4 and remain 922r-compliant. Judging from your post, it would seem that complaince is not a concern for you, and--assuming that is correct--I'd have to agree that the OEM forend stock would be preferable over the FFT one. I'm sure there are some out there on the secondary market, but I wouldn't be suprised if you could order one directly from Benelli USA either. They probably sell replacement parts as long as those parts are on a model that is sold in the United States.

    Shotgun Drill

    Found this: http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109822 Don't know if this is what you're referring to.
  22. ... Or eBay then. Personally, unless I've bought from a retailer before I won't spend more than $100 on an eBay purchase. But that's me. Been burned one too many times.
  23. I think if you're waiting for a trade, you'll likely miss availability of this rare item. I did find the stock listed as available at some online retailer's web site. Best to call these fellows up and see if they've got one in stock. (Web site says they do, but I don't know if the inventory status is updated in real-time.)
