  1. yeah. youtube shows a lot about taking out the trigger group, but not much detail on the Axle Bushing (the pin that holds the trigger group in) installation.
  2. Hey guys, its been a long while since I last posted on this site. a few years later and Im trying on some new gear for my M4. Quick question, does anyone have any instructions (pictorial) on installing factory trigger group's Axle Bushing, pins, etc. I removed it years ago and I used to have an old printout pictorial from this site, but I cant seem to locate it or the link. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Ive checked online and can't find much as far as instructions on replacing the OEM mag with a full length mag. I plan on purchasing the mag from Freedom Fighter tactical. Any help would be greatly appreciated. http://freedomfightertactical.com/products-page/922r-compliant-full-length-magazine-tubes/
  4. Oh - Im happy happy happy... http://31.media.tumblr.com/926e3e2e08b108ee6951c4254814d502/tumblr_mjmpa5rqyZ1qg385jo1_500.gif
  5. StrangerDanger; I just completed cleaning, tearing down and reassembling the trigger assembly. Im about to head to the range to test some rounds. Ill let you know how it worked out. Thanks for the great instructions!
  6. Also, I checked on some cold-weather lubes for duck hunters, and I found the following thread. http://www.duckhuntingchat.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=152266 It says to get FP-10, for cold weather lubrication (link below). It also says I should use "a small thin layer" of lube. I never did that. I thought I was supposed to slop it on thick when Im not shooting it regularly. That may also be my problem...too much lube. Lube Link : http://www.amazon.com/Shooters-Choice-FP-10-LUBRICANT-ELITE/dp/B0000C529R/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389577598&sr=8-1&keywords=FP-10+LUBRICANT
  7. BTW - I use this solvent to clean ALL of my gun parts before lubing them with RAND CLP. Is that ok or does solvent create any corrosion or damage to the trigger assembly parts? Link to solvent: http://www.amazon.com/Hoppes-Cleaning-Solvent-1-Quart-Bottle/dp/B00109AAN2/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389576941&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=hoppse+solvent
  8. StrangerDanger; Here's some answers to your questions. Q1: How many rounds do you have on your weapon? A2: approx 1000...over a period of 12 months. Q2: How cold of a climate are you operating in? A2: Im in ATL, but I go out shooting every month or two. I liberally lube the trigger assembly and the rest of the gun, but that seems to be hindering the trigger action, etc rather than protecting/helping. Q3: Take the trigger group out of the weapon and manipulate the moving parts by hand. Feel for gritty movements or if the parts bind at all. A3: I just did this and I do not feel anything grinding. Q4: I like to have spare pins and springs on hand so that I can compare the springs with a new unit. A4: Where do you purchase a new set of springs for the trigger assembly? Straight from Benelli? Q5: I'd try a new lubricant that is meant for cold weather environments. A5: I was using Frog Lube for a while until it started getting cold. However, each time i've seen the hammer almost slow, there has been a cold snap over the week before I go shooting. Also, I clean my gun, then stash it away for almost a month thinking the gun is fine. But I probably need to clean the gun regularly or the night before I go shooting. Oddly enough, I think its pointless to have a home defense weapon like the M4 when its gums up when sitting in the closet for a month or so over the winter. Q6: Are you certain that the bolt is fully seating? A6: Most definitely...it seats fine. Q7: Any markings on the unfired round's primer that the hammer dropped on? A7: Actually, YES. I came on this site after today's visit to the range when I noticed the PRIMER had a very light dent from the firing pin. It looked as if the firing pin was ever-so-slightly hitting the shell's primer. I assumed it was a dud until it happened a couple times. I wanted to blame the crappy shells, but the NobleSport Shells I purchased seemed fine. Link to the shells (http://www.ammunitiontogo.com/product_info.php/pName/250rds-12-gauge-nobelsport-hunting-2-34-3-14-dram-1-18-oz-7-12-shot-ammo/cName/12-gauge-birdshot). Maybe the shells?
  9. Quick Questions regarding lubing the trigger assembly. I noticed you have points on the trigger assembly where you recommend lubing. Let's say one has been lubing many areas of the trigger assembly other than those noted. Would that be a reason the trigger starts having issues hitting the firing pin when the temp gets cold? I wasn't sure where to lube, so I started lubing all of the trigger assembly points that have springs, etc. If this was a mistake, how would one completely clean the trigger assembly...by disassembling the whole thing and cleaning all the parts with solvent? Also, is there any type of lubing to the trigger assembly you recommend outside of the ones noted in this documentation?
  10. Thanks for the info guys and gals. Just wanted to let you know I finally got a chance to test some 3.25 dram 12g bird shot rounds and the M4 didn't jam once. Here's a little gun porn.. BEFORE... [ATTACH=CONFIG]2028[/ATTACH] AFTER... [ATTACH=CONFIG]2029[/ATTACH] I love my M4....
  11. So I assume using a heat gun is to seal the tube into place or remove the old tube?
  12. I;ve found a great full length magazine tube for my benelli M4, but I was wondering if there is other things I need to purchase with it...like a spring? etc? or does it come with all the parts? http://freedomfightertactical.com/products-page/922r-compliant-full-length-magazine-tubes/finished-titanium/
