  1. Purchased 500 Winchester low recoil slugs. Went to the range today, to shoot M4 for the first time. Shot about 40 high powered slugs and about 30 low recoil winchester as well as 20 normal recoil buck shuts.

    All been cycling well except Winchester "low recoil". Does that mean I have to shoot more high PSI rounds or am I screwed with the close to 500 soft recoil shells that I have left from Winchester?


  2. So in the tube world it seems that Kip is ruling in the titanium tubes and Joe in the steel tubes. Both are top notch based on the user experience.

    Question, if you had a good deal on the brand new OEM Benelli 7 rounds tube ($135) what would you do (I picked on up from ebay, which I can return if needed)? How would you compare OEM to Kip and Joe's work? Also, how can you tell that it is OEM Benelli and not some knock off?


  3. I have been lurking of late but since I got mentioned in this thread I'll jump in. I'm still around and currently have four FL tubes ready to ship... same high quality and same price $145. Been doing this for over seven years now and never had a dissatisfied customer. More info and questions ... [email protected]

    Joe, sent you email.

    Joe, how is your tube different from Dave's metalwork? No disrespect, just want to know the difference.

    Thank you.

    What are they made off, pictures?


  7. I have a Ti magazine tube from FFT. I bought it for comparison to Kip's. It is this one:

    http://freedomfightertactical.com/products-page/922r-compliant-full-length-magazine-tubes/finished-titanium/

     

    I will sell it to you, AND include one of Kip's springs (I feel that his are better than the FFT spec'ed spring, but I have the FFT spring if you want it instead. Up to you! Let me know) for $200 shipped. No follower will be included.

     

    The only thing that's been done to it is calipers...lots of calipers have been all over it. You can't tell, they were gently taken measurements!

     

    Sent you PM.


  8. Thinking of getting one.

    Couple of questions.

    1. What QD do you use with it?

    2. I could only find very old posts about this product and there were complaints that it fits badly, its wobles, the escaping gasses burn hands. I wonder if anyone have recently purchased M80 and if those issues have been resolved.

    3. What light mount do you use with it


  9. I had one of these years ago (2008?), and they work just fine. It's nothing fancy, but it is the same quality/construction/appearance as the factory 5-shot, just appropriate length. It's a cheap alternative to SOCOMGuy and Kip's tubes, but it is necessary if you are emulating the 100% military platform.

     

    YMMV, but for $120 they are a decent deal. Keep in mind that they don't help your 922r compliance cause, and you will need to replace the Spring (another $10-15 once shipped) if you want the most reliability possible (I tried to use the OEM spring and it resulted in multiple failures which were immediately resolved with the proper spring) If you want to spend more, get Kip's.

     

    Kip has a waiting list of 5-6 months. I can't wait that long :-).


  10. Got one yesterday. Ordered it off of ebay.

    While it is much better comparing to the stock handle, I don't like the finish of it. Black started to rub off from the handle right away revealing shiny metal.

    Question, if you have ATS handle, did you have the same issue?

    How would you compare ATS handle to GG&G? Is one bigger then the other?

     

    Thank you.


  11. Anybody has a write up on how to install it?

     

    If you have it installed, how long ago you installed it? Does it leave marks on the gun? I've read some old posts that it does scratch surface of the gun after some use. I was wondering if GGG changed anything in their design to fix the scratching issue.

     

    I have the pad in my hands, but I am debating if I want to install it or not. It seems that installation is not really easy. I don't want to screw up my new gun with bad installation or make visible scratches from use in the near future.

     

    Thank you.


  12. Any of you ordered OEM tube?

    I ordered one off of ebay. It arrived few days ago in the shipping tube. The finish on the magazine is rather gray then black, it is definitely different color then the rest of the gun. It does not say anywhere on the tube that it is Benelli.

    Does this sounds to you all right? Is that the same thing you guys have with OEM 7 round magazine?
