  1. Being a recent new owner of a Benelli M4 I had questions about assembly and disassembly myself. Between the Marines M4 training manual which was very helpful and your Benelli owners manual, you should have everything you need. I put together this handy recap that might be helpful. Field Strip 1. Open Bolt 2. Press Cartridge Drop (Locking) Button 3. Unscrew Fore-end Cap 4. Remove barrel along the Magazine Tube 5. Grip plastic forearms and slide forward 6. Hold the Bolt Handle firmly and press the Carrier Button (allowing the bolt to move a little way forward until it stops) 7. Twist & pull off the Bolt Handle 8. Remove the Bolt Assembly by pulling it forward Remove Trigger Group 1. Push out Trigger Pin from the Receiver 2. Press and hold in the Carrier Button and extract the trigger group towards the front Bolt Disassembly 1. Place finger over Firing Pin and remove Firing Pin Retaining Pin 2. Remove firing Pin and Firing Pin Spring 3. Lift or shake Cam Pin from Bolt 4. Remove Bolt Head from Bolt Carrier Clean 1. Remove choke, clean, oil, replace 2. Clean Barrel 3. Clean Trigger Group (touch of grease on hammer and sear) 4. Clean Bolt Group Re-assemby 1. Press Carrier Button and hold in while inserting the Trigger Group. 2. Insert Complete Trigger group with cocked hammer on the receiver in a slightly forward position. Then slide it back until it engages into the rear of the receiver. Once it is in place, release the Carrier Button. 3. Slide the Trigger Pin back into place. 4. Hold the Receiver horizontally and slide the Bolt Assembly in its guide on the Receiver. 5. Make sure the Bolt Link slides over the trigger assembly and onto the recoil spring plunger inside the Receiver. 6. Insert Bolt Handle 7. Open the Bolt 8. Press the Cartridge Drop Lever (Bolt Lock) 9. Take the Barrel-Breech Unit, place the Barrel on the Magazine Tube and slide it on toward the Receiver. Take the Barrel Extension and insert into the Receiver as you make sure the Magazine Tube enters the Barrel Guide Ring. Once barrel is fully seated, screw on the Cap tightly. Close the Bolt by pressing the Carrier Button.
  2. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your purchase. I'm sort of new to the M4 scene but I can tell you that Kip's mag tube is the gold standard around here. I'm not sure what the latest status is of his bolt release and muzzle break, but if he puts it up for sale and ships it, you can rest assured that it will be a superior product. http://shop.carriercomp.com/main.sc

  7. I personally favor and use Breakfree CLP for cleaning and lubrication, and TW-25B grease when called for. Keep in mind there are several popular brands available and everyone seems to have their favorite. Being a new owner of a Benelli M4 I had the same questions about assembly and disassembly recently myself. One member offered this link to the Marines M4 training manual which was very helpful. Between this manual and your Benelli owners manual, you should have everything you need. http://www.farrarsodfarm.com/nelli/USMC_M1014.pdf Here is a recap of the step-by step that might be helpful.

  8. My safe was around 1,100 lbs. empty and I have tile floors. When the men delivered it, they placed a moving pad on my tile floor just inside the doorway. They then tipped the safe off the hand cart/dolly onto the moving pad. At that point the strongest of the guys, and this guy was strong, grabbed the moving pad and pulled the safe down the hallway as two of us pushed from behind. We had about four turns and two inside doorways to negotiate. All went smoothly, although it was a bear to muscle the safe onto the cement platform and get it perfectly centered. To the earlier question posted, they used 4" X 3/8 - 1/2" tap-cons to fasten through the safe into the cement platform.
  9. If you have not seen this video yet, it is worth a few minutes of your time. It deals with how unsecure a low-end safe can be. It also will show you how important it is that your safe is anchored securely to the floor so that it cannot be tipped over.
  10. I also live in Florida, in a condo. Since we are not permitted to drill directly into the slab, the safe installer recommended using a cement slab that is cemented to the tile floor and then the safe is bolted to the cement slab. You want it very secure, not only for security, but also for safety, in order to avoid a tip over when the door is opened. Here is some good info on safes. http://www.6mmbr.com/gunsafes.html
  11. It seems that I am shaking my head in disbelief at more and more of late. Just curious... as I am pretty new here, is the discussion of news and current affairs allowed in this forum?

    M4 Upgrades

    Damn, there are some funny guys on this forum. Personally, I favor a minimalist, back to basics approach.
  14. Kip, thanks for the updated info and slotting me into the line for the muzzle break. If this is not too much hassle, I would also officially like to be placed on the list for a bolt handle as well. It's a pleasure supporting you and your gunsmithing endeavors. I could not be more pleased to know that my purchase is helping your cause along in supplying great quality, American made parts. Thanks for all that you are doing!
