  1. I drilled & tapped threads on my Remington 870. It was a fun and easy project. Really easy if you have a small drill press and a cheapo vice. I used this Mesa Tactical picatinny rail. It says it works on Benelli shotguns too. https://www.brownells.com/shooting-accessories/flashlights-accessories/accessory-mounts/rem-870-receiver-rail-5-1-2--sku100005801-27200-76055.aspx I bought this thread tap: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/262861/hanson-carbon-steel-bottom-tap This drill bit: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/758836/baker-drill-bit-jobber-length-titanium-nitride-tin-coated-31
  2. That looks similar to the Strike Industries forend design. I could be wrong, but I see set screws similar to the Strike Industries Benelli M4 handguard. I really don't like that design because it really gouges the weapon everywhere the screws contact for a snug fit. I'd dig it more if they used nylon tipped set screws or anything other than something that messes up such a fine shotgun. The Mesa Tactical Truckee handguard looks like the best design so far to me. No set screws, it's longer than the original handguard and Mlok all over. I haven't see a video showing how it is installed yet though.

    Makes me wonder if they never released the trigger or simply pulled the trigger and didn't realize it.
  4. If there are no holes, why not just drill holes?
  5. I prefer the pistol grip and collapsible stock, but if I had to go without the collapsible stock, I'd choose the pistol grip stock over the field stock. It's convenient that it also looks more militant and gives snowflakes & the left-tards a heart attack.
  6. I just did a quick search on YouTube and Google, but couldn't find anything. I'd compare your shotgun to the Benelli M2 and M4 bolt release videos and see if that part appears to be installed in the same way.
  7. Have you searched YouTube? When I purchased an extended bolt release for my Benelli M4, I found countless videos showing how to install it. Don't get hung up on finding a video showing how to install the exact bolt release you purchased. Just find videos show how to install 'extended bolt release' for the model of Benelli you have. Your exact part will be similar enough to be installed in a similar fashion.
  8. I've read a bit about Federal FliteControl and Federal supposedly recommends using a full choke. I've seen test results where people claim that the full choke shows deformation of the wad. Many tests I've seen people say they get excellent results using the Modified Choke that comes installed on the Benelli M4.
  9. I cannot imagine why the follower would not come out. You should be able to remove the cap & spring, be able to inspect and clean the tube well enough to get the follower out the open end. Once you get the follower out (if you get the follower out) you should be able to thoroughly inspect & clean the entire magazine tube. It might not be a bad idea to replace the spring and it wouldn't hurt to replace the follower too. You could go through the process of removing the magazine tube, but I'd exhaust all other options before doing that. I've done that with my Benelli M4, it's not that hard, but why do it if you don't have to.
  10. Look at the tip of these charging handles. Notice how the groove is NOT ground all the way around. This charging handle will NOT spin. These ground flats are what engages a detent and keeps it from spinning. When the groove is ground all the way around, the detent only captures the charging handle, but there is nothing to stop it from spinning 360°.
  11. Look at the tip of that charging handle. Notice how the groove is ground all the way around. This charging handle will spin.
  12. That bold also appears to have been machined round without any facets. It will spin 360°
  13. If you check out Freedom Fighter Tactical's Charging Handle, you'll see a big difference at the tip of the rod. If I'm not mistaken, the charging handle you linked to would probably spin 360°. The charging handle on the bottom is the OEM Benelli M4 Charging Handle and the Freedom Fighter Charging Handle is on top.
  14. In all my searching, I only came across one company that used to sell a full length magazine tube. Everyone else only sold magazine extensions. I would really prefer a full length tube, but ended up just buying the Nordic Components MXT extension.
  15. Thanks for the link! Make Ready Pro Shop = $82.25 including shipping. Not a huge cost savings, but the best price I was able to find was eBay.
  16. Optics Planet = $92.92 free shipping eBay = $95.50 including shipping Actually ... if anyone knows of an alternative magazine tube extension that is of good quality and less price, I'd love to check them out.
  17. My daughter has a Benelli Nova with the longer barrel. It appears she would need a +6 round magazine extension. I'm shopping around, but I was hoping someone here might already know where to get the best price. I'm still searching. Midway USA = $95.97 including shipping Brownells = Backordered Joe Bob Outfitters = Backordered Cheaper Than Dirt = $100.32 (not including shipping)
  18. This page shows better pics of a fixed front sight in front of a magnified scope.
  19. I have a Vortex SPARC on a M4. Not the exact same thing you're asking. The front sight shouldn't be a major issue with a magnified optic. Many have magnified optics on AR-15s that have a fixed front sight. My only concern would be whether or not you will have a good cheek weld once you get an optic on a mount on top of that receiver. You might need a cheek comb to raise your cheek weld. Many like the MESA Tactical Urbino Stock because the comb is adjustable.
  20. The reason I ask is because I have someone telling me the following: 922® compliance does not matter other than maybe for price negotiation purposes. If a prior owner replaced the parts without complying, it would still be legal for the current owner (technically) because 922® only prohibits assembly, not possession. If the original owner purchased it from their FFL with the collapsible stock and full length magazine tube then it’s likely exempt from 922® because it was a LE gun. (All LE guns are permanently exempt pursuant to 18 USC 925). This is the source of all factory-configured non-compliant Benelli shotguns.
  21. Do you mean that you purchased a Benelli M4 with a full length mag tube and a collapsible stock from your local FFL? If so, I would prefer to do that too after comparing the cost difference first. I'm just wondering if one can obtain a M4 in similar format via 'private sale' and not have to worry about 922r compliance or if compliance is at all relevant. I'm being told compliance is not in any way an issue. Another scenario could be offering an M4 as payment/trade to a local FFL. Should they be concerned about 922r compliance?
  22. Say you purchased a Benelli M4 from someone (private sale) and it had a full length magazine tube and collapsible stock. Is there any reason to be concerned about 922® compliance? For instance if it were originally purchased with fixed stock & limited mag tube, the original owner replaced only the stock & tube and you were to purchase it. If one were to purchase a Benelli M4 from a local FFL with a collapsible stock and full length mag tube ... how would this M4 differ from one that was originally purchased with a fixed stock, limited mag tube and the owner replaced only the stock & mag tube? Any way to tell? They could have used factory Benelli parts. The reason I ask is because I have someone telling me the following: 922® compliance does not matter other than maybe for price negotiation purposes. If a prior owner replaced the parts without complying, it would still be legal for the current owner (technically) because 922® only prohibits assembly, not possession. If the original owner purchased it from their FFL with the collapsible stock and full length magazine tube then it’s likely exempt from 922® because it was a LE gun.
