  1. Sorry if this has already been pointed out but if you only have one or two guns why do you need a safe? One that small could easily be picked up and carried off by two men. You could just as easily put an anchor in the wall an secure your guns with a cable. I would trust that more than a cheap safe. Or if your closet has a standard door have an electronic deadbolt installed and forget everything else. I have a keypad deadbolt securing the door of my gun room and I feel a lot better with that even though most of my guns are in my safes inside the room. Any well-built 45-60+ minute fire resistant safe is going to run you upward of $1,000 and probably much more. Browning (ProSteel), Liberty, and Fort Knox are the best out there. A friend of mine bought one of the Cannon safes that TSC sells and I'm not impressed at all with it. It is a wide body safe (big) and we were able to move it without an appliance dolly with the door still on. We just walked it into his garage. My smaller Browning safe cannot be budged with an appliance dolly if the door is still on, let alone trying to move by hand. You have to take the door off and move it separately. Stack-On is not even in the ballpark. They should only be looked at as a place to keep guns away from kids. They offer no security at all from thieves or fire. As far as electronic locks I have never had a problem with the ones on my safes. My oldest safe, bought in early 2008, was still running on the original battery up until 3 weeks ago. It wasn't dead when I changed it. Just swapped out of precaution.
  2. It's a waste of time to obsess over 922r. Everyone on this board will scare the daylights out of you talking about it, but I've never seen anyone that has brought forth a court record or arrest report ONLY charging someone with violating 922r. Unless you are going to throw your modded M4 in a very knowledgable ATF agent's face, how could this ever come back on you? It is a law that only applies to the Benelli by association. No US attorney is going to waste time prosecuting you because your Italian home defense shotgun doesn't have 3 American made parts on it. It is not a malicious crime and does not matter in the real world. Now if you go out and kill someone with your modded M4 or are caught trafficking weapons, you might get a 922r charge, but that would be the least of your worries at that point now wouldn't it?
  3. I really doubt that you are going to find such information free and publicly available.
  4. Great, something else for me to pay attention to that I probably never would have noticed otherwise.
  5. I'm a big Eotech fan. But I don't want something that bulky on a shotgun. Also I'm real funny about having anything hanging off the left side of the gun that I would have to look around or over. Love the Eotechs on AR15s but I'm thinking low profile for the shotgun. I have looked at the Eotech MRDS however. Right, I realized that was your main issue. I just can't see any problem with mine. Like I said, I've tugged on this every way I know how and its staying tight all around. Gluing the rail would work, I'm sure, if any problems ever did come up. Yeah, that was my plan a couple of years ago. Then I began to realize how little I like the M4 ghost ring design anyway, so I never messed with it. I think for the quickest target acquisition, some sort of red dot will have to come into play. I've just got to decide whether to scrap the Scout light or buy a reflex. The Eolad recommendation above got me thinking even though I don't like that particular design. I wonder if there are any other options for mounting a laser on the top rail along with a red dot sight of some sort.
  6. Also don't hate on me for the factory mag tube. I'm awaiting delivery of my tan tube from Kip!
  7. From the side: Tried to get a shot of the notch snug against the barrel:
  8. (I'm not a good photographer) From the top: Another with flash:
  9. SD - you've had a less than pleasurable experience with the BLAM4, but I have no complaints at this point. Maybe the tan coating on my M4 made the difference, maybe I happened to get a perfectly machined mount for my gun, or maybe CTG has made improvements since you purchased your mount. I'm totally satisfied that my BLAM4 is stationary and won't move. I've tugged on it pretty hard, and there is just no way this mount can shift with the way it fits my gun. Back on the sights, in pitch black with my light activated I cannot see the dots on my rear sight because all of the light is projected close to the muzzle. Probably wouldn't make a difference in the panic of home defense, but I want to be confident in the setup that I'm relying on to protect my home and family. Besides that, I just really don't like ghost sights. Also, thank you for explaining the problem with the factory top rail! I'm glad I know what to look for now.
  10. Ok I'll get some pics posted. There was just a very small amout of wiggle with the rail pointed back, hardly enough to complain about but I'm pretty particular. And I'm talking left/right wiggle not fore/aft. It looked to me like this was caused by the "barrel notch" on the mount not being completely snug with the bottom of the barrel. When I flipped the rail forward, the notch on the other side of the BLAM4 snugged up perfectly with the barrel, eliminating all left & right wiggle. Just some machining differences I think. There was no fore & aft movement in either position. Pics on the way... ...also keep in mind that I do have the desert camo model so the coating probably makes the BLAM4 a little more snug compared to the black guns anyway.
  11. Oh and one other monetary consideration: if I go with a reflex sight, is it absolutely necessary to replace the factory rail on the M4? Can it really do that much damage, or does it depend on what type of sight that you're using?
