I'm a new owner of a Benelli M4 & I have several questions regarding forends. (First thread)
1. Does anyone know if the picatinny rails on a Surefire M80 forend are removable? Or at least made a solid attempt in modifying it?
2. Has anyone tried modifying a forend, either a stock forend or one from Freedom Fighter Tactical with a picatinny rail?
I'm well aware of all the forend options that are available however, not one seems to fit my needs. My goal is to have something fairly lightweight, ergonomic & have a bottom picatinny rail for mounting a vertical foregrip. Plus, it being made in the USA for 922r compliance, ( I know I have a few compliance parts already but the more the merrier). I realized that wasn't going to be possible without thinking outside the box, hence the questions.
I've so far made due with a few modifications for my M4 (more details to come in a separate post on how I accomplished this after I've finished this project):
I've added a recoil reducing stock, a larger charging handle, a larger bolt release, pistol grip with single point sling attachment & ordered a titanium Carrier Comp 7 round magazine tube and a follower. Also ordered a laser/light combo vertical foregrip.
Thanks ahead of of time for any help/insight that you may extend, happy shooting!
