  1. Back from the dead. I have a very early model M1 and am running into this same problem. I really don't want to cut my factory tube. Mine has the fine threads into the receiver. Which tube am I going to need to purchase to be able to use an extension?
  2. FYI: I bought and installed the Arredondo handle. It's easy to reach and looks great. The bolt still cycles fine too. So far, so good.
  3. So, nobody here has any experience with the above three???
  4. I appreciate the info, but I need something for an M1.
  5. I really dislike the factory one and I know I want to upgrade it, but I'm unsure of which one to get. The factory one is pretty small and I don't want to add alot of weight to the bolt if it's going to cause cycling issues. Here's the three that I'm looking at so far. I'm open to any advice on these or suggestions for any others. Factory handle = 13.15 grams Arredondo $22 Supposedly weighted the same as the factory. (Is it plastic??) Nordic $24 19.87 grams
  6. My '86 model M1 does not have the threaded barrel, but my father's '94 model M1 does. So, they sarted doing it somewhere in that year range. I'd be willing to bet that it's cheaper to have your barrel threaded, as apposed to buying another barrel. What's the longest distance shotgun shot you'll face in a 3-gun match? (just curious)
  7. So, what is the retail value of a single digit of a serial number?
  8. For record, here's are the e-mail responses that I recently received: Benelli: "Please double check the serial number, you are missing a digit. I have tried to find information on this serial number and get nothing. Unfortunately, I cannot assist with this." H&K: "We have no information at all in our computer systems or elsewhere about that particular shotgun & serial #."
  9. I use the shotgun for speed shooting. Ideally, I'd like to put a Burris speed dot on it, but many places won't allow me to compete with optics. My father has an M1 with the ghost ring sights and I can aquire targets much quicker with his (especially targets of varying elevation). So, I already know I like the ghost ring sights better, and $100 is reasonable to me. I just need to know how involved it is to install them.
  10. I'm interested in this as well. I'd like to replace my rifle sights with ghost ring sights. Any info on the process would be greatly appreciated. Also, any recommendations on where to buy factory ghost ring sights?
  11. Thanks for the post, SgtCathy. I found the thread with the date codes. http://www.benelliusa.com/forum/showthread.php/16571-Benelli-Date-of-manufactuer-code?p=91956#post91956 As it turns out, we have almost identical Benellis. Mine is the same package as yours, as well as the same AP date code. So, I guess that answers my question. Thanks to everyone who posted.
  12. Thanks for the info. I will e-mail them right now to see if I can learn anything from them.
  13. I'm attempting to obtain it's manufacture date for my records. When I e-mailed Benelli, they told me that "it's missing a digit", but no other info. And I have yet to receive another reply from them. Not to mention that a few aftermarket parts require you to know the serial number to determine if the part will fit. I'm really just curious now. How could the maker of the shotgun not be able to identify their own serial number? And I still want to know when it was manufacturered.
  14. I was under the impression that all of the M1 shotgun serial numbers had six digits after the 'M' (example: M127579). I recently bought an older model that only has five digits after the M. Can anyone tell me why it appears to be missing a digit?
