    Briley Trigger Issue on M4

    I have a Briley trigger and a Taran Tactical extended safety on my Benelli M4. I noticed while cleaning it the other day that I can drop the hammer by either pulling the trigger hard (maybe 12 to 14 pounds of force), or by pressing it several times with less force (it seems to walk its way to a release) while the safety is engaged. I would like some input from others who are running the Briley trigger. Specifically, does your trigger have the same issue? Thanks in advance. Mike

    M4 Trigger work.

    I have the Briley trigger in my M4 and like it. The trigger pull is still heavier than I think is ideal, but I can get the trigger to break when I want it to and the reset is much shorter.Mike

    Super New to Shotguns - Ammo training/plinking

    More important than FPS is DRAM EQ. Your M4 should cycle anything with 3 DRAM or above. 3 DRAM is like 1-1/8 oz of shot at 1,200 FPS or 1 oz of shot at 1,250. Mike

    WTB: Surefire M80 for Benelli M4

    New or used? Just curious. For what I have seen some sell for in the past, that could be a bargain. Mike

    Bolt handle coming out TOO easily on m4

    Thanks SD. I will try the stock handle. I will also buy the detent and spring since they cost so little. Thank you for those links. Mike
  6. I have a Benelli m4 that I use in 3-gun competition. I have a Carrier Comp oversize bolt handle on it. A couple of months ago, I lost the bolt handle during a stage. Luckily I found it. Yesterday, I found it partially pulled out just before I started a stage. It seems like it pulls out easier than it has before.So what does this mean? Is the bolt handle worn out? Do I need a new spring for the detent? The handle does not appear to be excessively worn.Thanks in advance for any advice you might have.Mike

    Benelli M4 Chokes???

    Benelli states slugs should not be shot in a choke tighter than IC. The shotgun ships with a modified, which is tighter than that. I know people have shot slugs through the modified choke and I have not heard of any issues. A modified will deform the slug slightly and that could cause a lot of stress on the choke and end of barrel. I use a Light Modified in 3-gun almost exclusively. It is right between an IC and Modified. I have shot many slugs through it and have not had any issues. The LM is a good compromise between ability to shoot slugs when needed, and the ability to knock over a plate at 20 to 25 yards with 7-1/2 shot if needed. Mike

    New M4 owner questions re Aimpoint mounting

    I run a T-1 with a Midwest Industries low profile mount. I have been using it in 3-gun for about two years. Here is a thread on it that has some pics, including one showing the co-witnessing of the ghost ring sights. Midwest Industries Aimpoint T1/T2 Mount for M4 Mike

    Point me in the right direction...Benelli shotgun

    I like the M2 for doing everything you listed. I would start with the 24" field and set it up like a 3-gun shotgun (extended mag tube, barrel clamp, oversize bolt knob and bolt release). It would be good for anything in that configuration.

    C-STOCK Mid setting

    I believe the middle setting is designed to compensate for the thickness of body armor. Mike

    Benelli M4 -- Loading Port Modifications

    There is another thread that is similar to this one. Mike

    1st shots with new M4 one FTF

    Cold weather can thicken the oil you use to lube it up which causes a lot of drag on the bolt. I had mine fail to cycle when it was cold outside after it sat in the range rack for a while. You can use a thinner oil when it is cold. That might help. Mike

    Benelli choke tube tool modification....

    I got one of my chokes stuck pretty good on my M4. I ruined a Briley choke tube wrench and buggered up the choke tube. I used the stock Benelli choke wrench and tapped the "arms" with a hammer to break it loose. It worked but I bent the arms on my Benelli wrench. This mod seems like a good idea. And it will help it fit in the choke tube box better. Mike

    Briley trigger group exceeded my expectations

    This seems to be the approach of some shooters. I call it "using statistics" to hit stuff. Mike
