  1. Following my order with Zahal (and the 12% discount offered on the site banner), they sent me a discount code for 25% off. One of you may want to use FLASH25 to order yourself one of the recoil reduction rods.
  2. Could not wait to hear how it works. I went ahead and ordered two springs from Zahal (Israeli Tactical Gear). One for the M4 and one for the Hellcat. I need to stop reading about new gear ðŸĪŠ

    I have taken mine apart many times to 1) gradually take off material to get an easier load pressure, 2) change to a larger release button, and 3) open up the loading port for faster loading. I have done many mods to my gun because I use it for 3-gun competition. Therefore, it gets fired a lot and the mods have held up.

    We are all happy to learn from your mistakes.😏 Actually, I had the same thing happen years ago. I suspect that the spring was installed on a slant and/or too close to the pivot pin. When I had done mine, I did not know where to put to spring on reassembly. I looked it up after that.
  5. My M4 has the lightest recoil of any 12 ga. that I have ever tried. How much lighter can it get? If one of you gets one, please let us know how it goes. I might look into getting the one for the Hellcat, that little gun has some recoil.
  6. There are QD cups that can be mounted on a hollow stock. Just need to drill a hole in the stock and screw it together. Noveske Flush Mount Push-Button Quick Detach Universal Sling Mount for Polymer Stocks. I mounted one on my SCAR 16 and it holds like it was made there.
  7. Mesa Tactical Urbino Stock Pocket Push Button Sling Adapter with Quick Detach Swivel Benelli M4 Steel Black. Midway has it for $30.
  8. Do not use locktite!!! The stock is screwed into the recoil spring retaining plug. If you lock these two parts together, you will never get them apart. Any future attempt to remove the stock will only back out the retaining plug; leaving it inside of your stock.

    I've said this on other posts; the catch is designed to bend where the indents have been cut. By simply widening the indents, the spring weight is lowered and the shells feed easier. In the photo below, you can see how much I remove. You don't want to cut any deeper, just wider.
  10. I have tried both the velcro and hard mounted side shell holders. Don't like either. I use a chest rig that holds 24 rounds. It has a quick release belt.
  11. I never had to "break in" my M4. Out of the box, it ate everything. The only issues I have had is in extreme cold conditions, even now, where it will sometimes FTE/stovepipe with low FPS loads. 00 Buck is a great home defense round. It's like putting a spread of nine 9mm's in a single shot.
  12. I use the Briley Mobil Choke Spectrum Ported Chokes. Choke constriction is marked on band so there is no need to remove choke to verify size. As to the slug question, you may not want to shoot a sabot slug through a Mod choke.
  13. Many time in 3-gun competition, I have encountered a stage that required shooting slugs and bird shot and I have chosen to use the Modified choke for the bird shot distances. The slugs work fine through the Mod choke (M4).
  14. I'll put some electrical tape over the back end to cover the shiny spot. 😆ðŸĪĢ😂😄😁
  15. kenw111, make up your mind 🙃! I shoot mine a lot in 3-gun competitions and does not need to look pretty.😁
  16. They do make the 20ga in a wood stock; however, they do not make a left handed 20ga. You did not mention for what purpose you will be using the gun. There are many light recoil 12 ga shells on the market and I know of many "lighter framed female" shooters who use 12ga shotguns. To get a quality gun that checks off all of your needs (left handed, 20ga, nice wood stock, light recoil), take a look at the Beretta A400 Xplor Action Left Handed. For you, getting a left handed gun should be more important than getting a wood stock. Therefore, for a good left handed 20ga with synthetic stock, go with the Benelli M2. One last word of advice, go shoot a few guns (even if you have to shoot right handed) to get the feel of the differences. Good luck.

  18. I, originally had a Trijicon RMR with Scalarworks mount (for the co-witness). However, the Trijicon was difficult to see when the sun was over my right shoulder. I change over to a Vortex Razor and a rail mount. A side by side compare of the Trijicon and the Vortex (looking into a shaded area) shows the Vortex has much clearer glass with less side distortion. Also, the Vortex has a wider FOV. No longer having/needing the co-witness, I opted to remove the stock sight. I then reversed the direction of the stock rail and cut off the portion that extended too far to the rear. I also removed the front sight blade and blade guard.
  19. How may parts do you have? The full kit contained: 1) adjustable length, pistol grip stock with height adjustable cheek rest 2) Forend 3) Forend heat shield 4) +1 round replacement tube with spring 5) picatinny rail shroud 6) follower 7) cap. I had the whole set up a few years back, the only parts still on my gun are the forend and heat shield.
  20. My M4 only has light load ejection problems on cold days. In the summer months it will eat anything.
  21. The Arredondo is plastic and mounts to existing release button. This means that it requires drilling and tapping of the factory button. I was not comfortable attempting that. The GG&G comes with a replacement shell catch that is pre tapped. Also, the GG&G is a metal button and can be under cut to them be used for clearing shells out of the tube (unloading). Using a Dremel tool, I ground out an arched lip on the underside of the front of the button. By slipping your fingertip under this lip, you can lift the shell catch away from the shells in the tube.
  22. The shipping cost is why I was going to order two of them.
  23. Arms Unlimited has the M4 oversize charging handle on sale for $10. I picked one up last time they had the sale and love it. I would have purchased two but they only had one left in stock. Glad to see them back. https://www.armsunlimited.com/AU-Large-Bolt-Charging-Handle-for-Benelli-M4-p/lb-m4-bch.htm
  24. I wrote a post this past Saturday on how to lighten the shell catch tension. Open up the "U" cuts to increase the amount of bendable metal.
  25. I have the same setup as Birdog19, "Carrier Comp 7-round tube with a Nordic Components extension to get me to 10+1". With ghost loading, I can start a stage with 12 rounds.
