  1. Does that M1 have a pistol grip? If so, it fits in that eagle ind. case fine?
  2. Welcome to the forum, stockp. Sounds like you've been having a great time!
  3. Thanks guys. I'll look at NAPA and Snap-on for sure. @rocket - Thanks for answering my other question.
  4. Looks like I wasted some money on the 36" NCStar case. It is too tight of a fit. After fumbling around with it for about 5 minutes, I did manage to get it zipped shut. After being in the case overnight, the case did stretch a bit. It's easier to zip up. However, the zipper is still quite tight/stretched. It's probably not worth the shipping charge to bother shipping it back. I see now on the NCStar website they offer a 38" size. That should be perfect. I already placed an order for that one. @birddog - Those cases look nice. However, I don't see a size around 38-40 inches. I wanted the smallest size case for the M4 with collapsible stock (in collapsed position). Which is right at 35".
  5. I just installed my CC full legth tube. (Purchased about a year ago... decide it was time to install it today:confused:) When I re-inserted the spring retainer using the snap ring pliers, the spring retainer never felt like it seated into a recession or ring. It seems to just be gripping the inner wall of the full length tube. I don't want to take it back apart just to feel the inside of the CC full length tube. Can someone tell me... is the inner wall of the CC full length tube slick or is there a groove for the spring retainer to seat itself? I guess I'm afraid the spring will come flying out the next time I remove the barrel nut. Also, I searched quite a bit for a pair of good snap ring pliers. I can't find a pair that come highly recommended. I stumbled across a pair of "Irwin" brand at my local Lowe's. They suck. Kept slipping out of the holes in the spring retainer. Barely got the job done. I love tools that make a job easy so I'd like to find a good pair of snap ring pliers for next time. I bet benelliwerkes or stangerdanger know where I can find the good stuff.
  6. Thanks daniel. I just ordered one on eBay. Saved a few bucks on the shipping charge!
  7. Wow, needncash, I'd say the 2N2 Gunpod looks more like a mobile gunsafe!!! Hmmmm, I just started looking at gunsafes. That might not be a bad idea.
  8. Thanks guys! I've got the 5.11 range bag and love it. So, the 5.11 36" gun case was at the top of my list! However, I just discovered this case: http://www.tacticalshotgunaccessories.com/minotaur/gearbags/shotguncases.htm It seems to be unbranded so the quality is unknown, but the low price might make it worth the gamble.
  9. I'm looking for a nice gun case for my M4. It's just shy of 35" long with the collapsible stock. I'd love to get a Pelican case. I just might get one for bigger trips, but it seems to bulky for short trips to the range. I've having trouble finding a 36" soft case that has a slim profile. Everything I find in 36" is is more like for an Ar15 with large magazines and large scopes. What are you guys using?
  10. @benelliwerkes - according to the Brownells video I watched, the magna-tip system is 3/8". It appears your Wiha has a 1/4" to 3/8" adapter attached. Is that correct? Did it come with that adapter? It does not show that adapter on the amazon description. BTW, your pics give me a case of tool envy! @strangerdanger - did you get the brownells/magna-tip torque wrench/screwdriver with your set? Looks like it only cost $70 when you buy it with that massive set. Either way, nice Father's Day gift!!!
  11. Thanks benelliwerkes! Looks like you made your post at the same time I discovered this post from Kip. Seems the proper amount of tourque is a mystery. However, if you have success with 8.5 in/lbs then I don't see why they would need to be any tighter.
  12. Hmmm, I just looked at Brownells. They have the Magna-Tip torque handle. Might be worth the $120 since it comes with a lifetime guarantee. Anyone have/use this Brownells/Magna-tip model?
  13. I was wondering if any of you guys know exactly how many inch pounds Benelli recommends for tightening the screws on the M4 picatinny rail. Perhaps some think it is unnecessary to use a torque screwdriver. For one, I'd rather be safe than sorry. Second, I love tools! Also, I'd take a recommendation on a good torque screwdriver. Amazon dot com has a number of brands (Wheeler, Weever, Wiha, Neiko, etc.) at fairly reasonable prices. $50-$100 As much as I love tools, I can't see spending more than a $100 for this tool unless someone can convince me otherwise.
