  1. there is no need for anymore discussion. Thank you all for the well wishes.
  2. My gun shoots the Federal L.E. low recoil slug very accurately out to 100 yards. My gun also holds about a 4-6" group at 40 yards with the Winchester PDX1 slug/3 oo buck, which amazed me.
  3. My box looks the same. You can clearly see the original Bennelli 11707 sticker behind the 11721 sticker. Even though the 11721 is legal for a civilian to own, I agree that it is smart to make it 922r compliant, just as a precaution. I am retired L.E.O. and I still made my 11721 922r compliant. Of course, I still have the original box and parts in case I ever decide to sell the gun.
  4. To my knowledge, that is a very good overview of the different models. Being retired L.E.O.. I have the 11721 with the original box and paperwork. I do shoot it occassionally and enjoy it every time I do. As far as a civilian being a "sucker" for buying a 11721, I would have to disagree. I have heard of many civilains paying for a 11707 and then buying the 11721, or after market stock, at a greater expense, than they would have paid for a "factory" 11721. In my humble opinion, these people are the suckers because they have the same or greater money into a gun that does not have the factory box, paperwork and is not factory produced. After the enjoyment of collecting or shooting the gun, paperwork IS prominance. Just my 2cents.
  5. I carried a Remmington 870 in the line of duty, but I have to say, my Bennelli 1014 L.E. 11721 is my favorite gun. And, being the factory L.E. model with box and paperwork it is also somewhat rare. :^)
  6. I checked Gunbroker and only saw the civilian versions. I know these carry a premium, especially with the original box and supporting paperwork, over those, but thought someone here might be able to give me a realistic number. Anyone else? Thanks again.
  7. original military/law enforcement Benelli M4, model 11721 in "as new" condition with all of the original box and paperwork. Opinions? Thanks in advance.
  8. Congratulations, the gun looks great. Since you are new to shotguns, please consider a little free advice. Bring the gun, buttstock, up an inch to an inch and a half in your shoulder swell. Basically, you will be much more effective if you bring the sights up to your eyes, instead of your eyes to the sights. Second, pull the shotgun into your shoulder with your dominant hand and steer it with your support hand while keeping 80-85% of your weight in a foreward poisition over the balls of your feet. Again, this is only free advice based on the picture you posted. I have been a certified instructor for 17+ years and am still, always, willing to listen to and learn from others. I hope this will help. Though I carried a Remington 870 in the line-of-duty for years, my M-4 model 11721 is what I use now. Most importantly, get as much trigger time as possible.

  9. WTS: Benelli M4 Standard Stock $185/Shipped (views: 44) -- KeithS/ABQ,NM -- 10/17/11 16:53
  10. Thank you BigHat! I agree with all of your points. I just bought one, that I am supposed to pick up tomorrow or I would definately be making an offer. Actually, M4madness, any interest in trading for sliver coins?
  11. follower, and spring and the fit and finish is GREAT! I followed the instructions, which are very detailed, and the install went smoothly. As warned, Benelli did apply an ample amount of the thread locker at the factory. Following the instructions, I used a heat gun and an infrared thermometer to complete the install. My thermometer read 313 degrees when I attempted to unscrew the original tube and it took little to moderate pressure. I had to actually apply a little more pressure to unscrew the tube as it was beginning to cool. I used the hard nylon brush to easily remove the rest of the thread locker and then screwed the new Carrier Comp titanium 7 rnd. tube in to place. I also used a small drop of the blue lock-tite during installation. I am very happy with the product and plan to buy another for my L.E. model 11721 when it arrives.

  12. I have only dealt with Carriercomp on one ocassion and had no problem. I bought my Benelli M4 on 27 August, came home, found this forum, and began asking questions. I decided to order the Carriercomp 7 rnd. mag tube and it arrived yesterday, 10 September 2011. I read the info on the Carriercomp web site before ordering and based on that info feel like my product was delivered in a timely manner. And you are right in your above statement, it is VERY nice craftsmanship! Just for clarification, to try to keep from being included in a generalized statement. Responding metaphorically, I have never played in a band, much less been a band leader, and only give my opinions based on my personal first hand experience. I also have no equity or personal interest in Carriercomp.
  13. P.M. sent. Per your P.M. consider the gun sold. Give me a call about my FFL dealers info and I will send funds out tomorrow, 9 September, 2011. Thanks again.
  14. Replied with P.M. Sorry for the delay, I have been out of town.
  15. Is this original gun, box, and paperwork still for sale for 2375.00? Thanks.
  16. New parts will be shipped shortly. I just ordered the Mesa Tactical Urbino tactical stock with the limb saver and the cheek riser as well as their 8 round pictiny rail side saddle. I also ordered the Carrier Comp full length 7rnd. mag tube with the follower and spring. This gun is fun to shoot the way it is, but I can't wait to add the new pieces. Sukhoi_fan, thanks again for your advice!
  17. Thanks again for the info. I checked out their web site and it looks like their tube, follower and hammer might be the best and most cost effective way to go. I will give them a call tomorrow. Thanks again.
  18. Thanks for the information. Would an American made tritium front sight count as one of the parts? Who has the USA made titanium tubes? Would the same company also have the follower? Thanks again.
  19. owned a M1 super 90 and a M3 which I still REGRET selling. I have been looking at the M4 for a few months because the dual gas system really intrigued me. Yesterday, I found and bought LNIB M4 at a local gun show. It came with a nice adjustable sling and looks as new. When I got home my oldest son got excited about the gun so we went to the range, a couple of miles away, to sight it in. This gun is a pleasure to shoot and fed everything I put through it, including; Federal #8, LEO low-recoil 1oz. slugs, Fiocchi 1 1/4 oz. #7 1/2, and Winchester PDX1. All rounds grouped very very good with the PDX1 keeping a 6" group at 25 yards. To say the least, I am impressed. Now the questions. 1) I am planning on adding a magazine tube extension. I would like to keep it Benelli if possible. What are my options and where can I purchase one? 2) I would also like a good side saddle. What are my optons and where can I purchase one? 3) I have always used SureFire lights on my duty weapons. Is this still one of the better options or what else is comparable quality and price? Again, if you have preferred people to buy from I would appreciate the links or numbers. Thanks, in advance, for any info and I look forward to being a part of the forum.
