  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.

  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
  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,
  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/
  13. lol - i think those are the rentals they offer at the range. Kinda like the old used-up driver they offer beginners at the driving range. BAZINGA!
  14. I lube that sucker up pretty good with Frog Lube. I just recently loaded these rounds in my Shopping Cart. I did some reading on the DRAM rating and I think a 3.25 Dram, 1290fps 12g round will do. Ill check it out next range trip and get back with you.

  15. This might sound a little odd, but I take my Benelli M4 trap or skeet shooting regularly. Today, I was using the shells they sell you at the range (Low Recoil 12g, 1oz #8). Out of the 75 shells I shot, 4 or 5 of them jammed in the barrel so bad I needed to use my needle nose pliers to pull the shell out of the barrel. Assumption 1: I assume the low recoil shell doesnt have enough kick to push back the slide far enough to completely eject the spent shell. Assumption 2: I also assume I need a different round with enough kick to push the slide (not sure thats the right terminology) comp
  16. I recently purchased a SIG716, SIG P220 and a Benelli M4. Ive used Frog Lube each and every time I've cleaned my guns. I love Frog Lube because not only is it for lubing, but you can also use it to clean all the mechanisms in the firearm. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.
