    New forend for Benelli m4

    So which of us is going to fly to Europe and smuggle back 500 of these rails?

    Anyone going to Shot Show?

    One interesting item I saw was the Aridus Industries "CROM" mount which replaces the rear sight and also functions similarly to the Scalarworks SYNC Micro. They sell it as a Beretta 1301 part and I messaged them to see if it was M4 compatible (I suspect it is not).

    Gear Set-Up and Loadout

    Looks great but must be very heavy with all those shells

    Couple M4 questions

    Welcome. 1. The magazine spring retainer ring sits in the tube under tension and does not "lock" or "snap" in. Because of this, it is not suggested to remove the thread on magazine end cap when the magazine is loaded as the magazine spring retainer can launch with a good amount of force (ask me how I know) 2. Sorry don't know. Back in 2010 when I put my seven shell tube on to replace the factory five shell tube I can't recall if Kip included a new / longer mag spring or not.

    New M4 owner

    Sounds like a good plan. So long as you're sticking with the factory fixed PG stock, I second going with the new Scalarworks mount for your Aimpoint Micro. Also second that AVA and IWC both make excellent weaponlight mounts for this application. Enjoy the new shotgun! My buddy & I took ours out this past weekend (his an 18.5" and mine a 14") and had a blast out in the desert.

    C-Stock @ mid setting -vs- Urbino stock for use w/ RDS on M4

    JosERW -- "Strangerdanger" on this forum is a M4 specialty gunsmith and would be a great choice for the work. Obviously the difficult part of PG stock cutdown is making the new buttpad look great. Back in 2010 I had cut down my PG stock but never quite figured out the "make the buttpad match" part and ended up trashing it for a C-stock.

    M2 and M4 entry (SBS) magazine extension

    Interesting on the Nordic extension. Yes the cap is the same. While a bit goofy for serious uses, I could see someone running this in a 3-gun match where max capacity is required to be competitive.

    Benelli M4 Multi Light Mount by IWC

    Yes - and it is my understanding that there are only two variants of the IWC mount (direct Scout attach or pic rail), so IWC's drop list should only show "Scout direct mount" and "1913 rail" verses the current four options which are somewhat confusing. Regardless of the confusion, great weaponlight mount!

    Writer needs feedback on a scene with a Benelli M4

    Since its just a short piece -- just post it here and crowdsource feedback

    M2 and M4 entry (SBS) magazine extension

    Yes the only "upgrade" for the SBS magazine is a CarrierComp Ti unit. Same length & capacity, slightly lighter. One thing some folks with the SBSs do is pickup a full length CarrierComp Ti magazine (seven shell mag) plus an 18.5" barrel assembly so that they can swap over to a non-NFA configuration for impromptu interstate travel or other apps where the nine shell capacity is beneficial.

    Benelli M4 Multi Light Mount by IWC

    From IWC...when selecting the mount there is a drop down list from which you can select the version which includes the rail segment. It's not very clear (poorly worded) on the IWC site which of the last two drop down options you want so you may need to email their customer service for clarification. When I preordered mine I don't recall there being any options and I was direct mounting a Scout so just needed the most basic version.

    Benelli M4 Multi Light Mount by IWC

    For an X300 you'll need the picatinny rail attachment option. The basic mount is setup only for direct Scout light attachment so the small rail option will act as an interface adapter for your X300

    AR Style Safety - Like or No Like?

    While I am a fan of oversized safety and bolt release, not digging the style shown.

    C-Stock @ mid setting -vs- Urbino stock for use w/ RDS on M4

    It's the IWC Scout mount.

    C-Stock @ mid setting -vs- Urbino stock for use w/ RDS on M4

    It's my understanding that it has a retaining bolt that threads, from the rear, into the receiver's recoil spring tube extension. From what I've seen looking at necro posts there may be issues with this bolt coming loose, or causing issues with the extension if threadlocked into place. So SD you don't recommend the Urbino to your customers & for the M4 builds you do now that C-Stocks are readily available for $250? I remember the bad old days where C-Stocks were selling all day long for $450-$500 and before then even higher! When they dipped down to $230 at one point I bought two in case I ever messed mine up!
