  1. I wonder which is louder inside a house, a short barreled AR or a 12ga? My money is on the AR. Piercing noise those things make.
  2. IMO, I think that a heavy 12 gage weapon is likely too much for either one. If shotgun is a must, I would suggest a 20. But my first choice would be an M4 type AR. Pretty much anybody can easily handle one of those. And plenty of firepower.
  3. I would say no, the choke is not listed as one of the parts eligible for 922R compliance. Here is a comprehensive list of the parts that can be replaced for compliance. https://freedomfightertactical.com/pages/922r-faq
  4. Yep, good enough for a GI weapon but, I for one am not gonna use my NP3 plated bolt handle to do that.
  5. How to remove the spring retainer that has no holes? Remove the mag cap then start loading shells into the mag. After 3 or four shells the spring should push it out. I'd place a pillow in front of the gun first so things don't fly all over the place when it pops out. Then you can drill holes in it easier if you want.
  6. Not at all an uncommon experience with a brand new gun shooting LR rounds. Some have said to "break in" these guns you should fire at least a couple hundred rounds of full power loads before you try any low recoil stuff. As for ammo, I have read many times on the 'net about people having these issues with the bargain brands of ammo, particularly Fiocchi. Both not fitting and reliability issues. Cheap stuff isn't always worth the money savings. Reliability is foremost. Personally, I only use Federal and Remington ammo in my M4. My advice, shoot a couple hundred rounds of full power American made stuff, then try the Fiocchi again if you want but, in any case, I don't recommend shooting any LR stuff rated below 1300 fps. People have claimed ftf's and fte's even with Federal's 1145 fps stuff. And, have fun, the M4 is an awesome shotgun!
  7. I disagree. When I look to aftermarket parts, be it for my Ducati or a firearm, I always strive to strike a balance between functionality and aesthetics. Why ruin the looks of an expensive beautiful thing by slapping something ugly on it, just because it may be functional? Burnt orange carpet and purple drapes may be functional, but are you gonna decorate you home with that?😀
  8. This thread got me to thinking about a couple of things.......first, I never really looked a my recoil spring tube to see if it is the 3-position collapsable stock one or not. I was pleased to find that it is. Mine is a 2014 H20 gun. Secondly, I got out the field stock that I bought and never used to take another look at it. I actually like the way it looks on my gun better than the fixed PG stock that came with it. SO, I ordered another NOVESKE QD sling swivel and another LImbsaver butt pad to put on this field stock and give it another chance in actual firing.😎
  9. Keep the gun....buy a PG stock so you can try both of them out to see which one you prefer and, so that you can have an alternate set up should you decide that you like both stocks.

    I checked his profile and he hasn't logged in here since 11/22/18. Whatever can be made of that, I don't know.
  11. Birdshot? Iv'e never used anything but 00 buck and Federal slugs in my gun and it's always loaded 7 shells without any issue. Don't know what's going on there with your gun. Let us know if you are able to resolve it.
  12. They are supposed to hold seven 2-3/4" shells. Mine always has. Of course they will not hold seven 3" shells. Check your ammo. I have read that some brands of shot shells are a bit longer so when you try to stack seven of them in a tube, they won't all fit. As for me, I only use Federal and Remington shot shells; 2-3/4", which measure 2-1/4" in unfired condition and seven rounds fit fine in my gun. What brands of ammo are you loading that don't fit seven in the tube?
  13. Will this one work? https://www.nokick.com/Precision_Fit_Pad_AirTech_Benelli_p/ls-10810.htm
  14. No worries....it's not uncommon at all to have to do minor fitting with stocks even OEM. They are after all, a moulded item and not CNC machined. Yes, either a blade or even more controlled, is sandpaper wrapped around a small wood block or similar and go slowly remove a little bit of material at a time from the part that curves around the back of the trigger housing following it's curves. Check frequently until the trigger housing will seat fully into the receiver and the pin will latch through without using excessive force.
  15. Hi, are you talking about the pin that secures the trigger group in the receiver not lining up after screwing the stock on? If so, sometimes you have to shave a little bit of plastic off of the the part of the stock that curves around the back of the trigger housing to get a fit. It doesn't allow the trigger group to fully seat into the receiver. I had to do this when I changed the oem trigger housing to an A&S aftermarket housing.
  16. While I'm glad that companies are paying attention to the platform, I have to admit that aesthetically speaking, I don't like that forend at all.
  17. As already said, don't give up the ghost just yet, it may turn up. That said, could I offer some advice for the future? First, I trust USPS priority mail 2-day for smallish to medium sized packages more than UPS, I just do. Second, removing and installing the trigger group parts is a relatively easy job to do with a little patience and just a couple of inexpensive specialty tools. There is a very fine, detailed tutorial, on how to do it complete with step-by-step pictures right here on this board courtesy of member "StrangerDanger". From my experience, I don't let mechanics touch my Ducati motorcycle and I don't let "gunsmiths" touch my weapons...especially if it would involve shipping them. Shop manuals and tools are my friends. I hope this turns out well for you.
  18. yep...if that benelli handle is a true representative example of the part, it's going to spin. Personally.....i've never found the need to replace the oem bolt carrier handle, or the release button with larger style aftermarket types.
  19. The pictures that you posted of the hand guards seated look absolutely normal to me. Just make sure that the mag cap is screwed down as tight as you can get by hand, and that the base of the barrel is tight flush against the face of the receiver. The flat spring inside the barrel ring provides some tension for hand guards against the receiver. The guards also serve the purpose of covering the gas system.
  20. I hope you end up liking it. It's a handsome looking piece in any case. I'm a pure minimalist most of the time IMO, the OEM hand guards are tops. For me, the only improvement to be made on them is this, which I did; https://www.tangoarms.com/products/benelli-m4-forearm-stippled
  21. The hand guards should line up easily. The way I put them back on is; first I seat them into the retaining plate at the front of the receiver holding them together with one hand, then slide the barrel down on until the barrel ring has captured the front of the guards. There is a flat spring inside the barrel ring that keeps constant pressure on the guards as you tighten the magazine cap down making sure the ring at the base of the barrel is tight against the face of the receiver. Congrats on the new M4 you're gonna love it, it's a great gun:cool:
  22. Looks right to me...curious why you had to "put it together" did it not come assembled? You said in another thread that you're in California, where did you buy the gun? In a gun shop, online?
