  1. Great build SD! Good to see the spacers available for folks who run the C-stock in its middle position. Are there similar spacers for Aimpoint Micros when using the SYNC02 and running a C-stock in the middle?
  2. Can you buy that new style C-Stock in the US or is it only available in Europe?
  3. Looks great, very thoughtfully done, and very classy setup!
  4. I started with an 18.5" in 2010....bought a 14" in 2012. Sold my 18.5" shortly after. Both are great, I prefer the 14". 14" is also much more WML friendly as you don't have the barrel shadowing issues you have on an 18.5". Lot of misinformation in this thread wrt the legal aspects of NFA ownership, which is unfortunate as it casts a discouraging shadow on getting into NFA items.
  5. I bought my first M4 from Botach and they have been a Benelli dealer for >10 years. I've ordered from them approximately 25 times over the last 11 years and always had a positive experience.
  6. Thanks! The sticker is just a UID Sticker. You can get them from Carolina Laserworks for $10. I have no relation with the company, just bought eight or so of their stickers over the years. It's primarily a "cloner" thing. https://carolinalaserworks.ecwid.com/
  7. Looks great and may pick one up. I've always just run the OEM bolt release and can certainly agree the factory one is a good bit too small.
  8. Second what SD recommended. A PLHv2 in 18650 body length fits awesome on your IWC mount with a 14" barrel. If you're running the factory handguards, the tailcap suggestion is best. If you're running a SF M80 or Agency handguard, then you have some remote switch options i.e. Hot Button, Modbutton Lite, ect. Here's mine with a SF Scout and Modbutton Lite on an M80 rail.
  9. C-stock (in middle position) does work well with a bit higher higher over bore. The LEAP mounts in 1.42" size should work prettt well, especially for RDS that don't have significant additional height in their chassis. i.e. Aimpoint Micro being an example of a "low" RDS. I used to run an Aimpoint micro in a LaRue QD low mount on the top rail and found it was a bit too low (height over bore) for the C-stock in the middle position. Now running a different RDS which has a few more millimeters of height (line of sight over bore) and it works great for me. All that said, the SYNC mount looks the cleanest and is ideal if you're running any of the OEM stock options in the fully extended position.
  10. Yes height over bore is the issue. What stock you run (i.e. c-stock in middle position, field stock/pg stock, or Mesa adjustable riser) makes all the difference. I personally run a c-stock in the middle position which dictates the need for a slightly higher over bore line of sight than the irons.
  11. There is one on eBay right now.
  12. Hi - that particular part number is tough to find at a reasonable price. I'd recommend a 11707 at around $1600-1700 and then purchase the seven shell tube from CarrierComp separately.
  13. Hello - I do not live in Pakistan but this dealer may be able to help you: Haider khan & Sons Arms dealer
  14. Hello - as you likely know the M80 rail has been out of production for several years. They do pop up every so often here. There is one on ebay now and are also often on GunBroker. I have one but am using it on my M4.
  15. Don't do it buddy! Hold out for an OEM C-stock. It's worth the extra trouble!

    Some R&D

    Awesome project thank you for the pics
  17. In the very unlikely event of having to ship the shotgun somewhere for warranty work, emphasis on very unlikely, you can reinstall the factory components in about 15 minutes.
  18. There have been several members who have shortened PG stocks. I did one back in 2010 when C-Stocks were hard to come by. You will have to use a "grind to fit" butt pad. You also have to fabricate new mounting holes for the butt pad screws. A shortened OEM stock is "nicer" than the mesa aftermarket option but is several hours of work to get right!
  19. For a shorter length of pull, options include: 1. Benelli C-stock run in its middle position. This is a bad time to be buying them as prices are elevated to roughly $500-$600. I'd suggest waiting until they drop to at least sub $400. 2. Mesa tactical PG stock. Solves your LoP problem but is a lesser quality product compared to OEM. Could be used as a placeholder. I've seen them sub $100. 3. Gunsmith shortened LoP on a Benelli field or PG stock. I did this once myself as a placeholder for a C-stock.
  20. Dang prices are bad right now! Note this appears to be a knockoff C-Stock and not a Benelli OEM.
  21. I have the CC Ti tube on my 14". Every ounce counts when you're taking it off the front end of the shotgun!
  22. Some folks have flush mounted QD sling docks into the stock, accessing the work area via the buttpad cavity. There have also been folks who have installed a QD sling dock plate in place of the existing flat sling loop, however they indicated there was a fair amount of "gunsmithing" type work involved as that part of the firearm is not very service friendly.
  23. Assuming you have the C-Stock you need the Limbsaver 10403 and two M4-0.7 x 16 mm Phillips Pan Head Machine Screws. Total cost is under $40. The slide on one is trashy on a M4.
