  1. Below items are my soft rankings based on my experience of the benefits and cost (low to high): 1. GG&G Bolt release (currently out of stock). 2. TTI Shell Lift/Carrier. 3. Scalarworks SYNCH Mount -- Replaces your pic rail (saves a little weight) and co-witness your RMR and ghost ring sight. 4. Oversized Safety. 5. LimbSaver Butt Pad -- Honestly I didn't feel the same reduction in recoil that others have, but I've been told I have no feelings!. 6. Open Up the Loading Port -- Briley does this and so does Stranger Danger. 7. NP3 Coating on all the internal parts. 8. Spare Parts Kit -- FFT has these in-stock. They aren't cheap ($176) and can include things that you may already have seconds of (trigger springs) and items you may not need but it's worth considering. There is also a discussion on here that talked about commonly needed (carried) spares -- worth taking a look. A better idea might be to build your Oops Bag-O-Spares by ordering individual parts from Numrich. Again, not cheap! Once GG&G gets their modified bolt releases back in stock I'm going to get another as as spare. Just some thoughts!
  2. Great range report! Has anyone taken a shotgun course at Front Site? I've completed their 4-day defensive handgun class and it was good training. I've posted the attached before and hopefully it is helpful for those seeking weight reduction as this thread mentions. The "Reduction/Addition" columns reflect what I have changed out since I first added all the accessories to the gun. Such as, getting rid of the Mesa side saddle for a Vang Comp and replacing the Nordic 7 round mag tube with a CC tube. Weights of other components like handguards really helped me decide to stay with the OEM foregrips; besides I like the way they grip. M4 Accessory Weights (4).xlsx
  3. Nice pictorial - tutorial!
  4. Thought I'd throw more fuel on an ongoing topic....Came across this Streamlight TLR2 RM light on a Botach ad/email. It resembles an Inforce light but is brighter and also comes with the option to include a tape switch as well (velcro or pic mount). The rear mounted switch seems more ergonomic like an Inforce and would be gentler on Stranger's delicate thumb! The tape switch has a 90 deg plug which appears to make it a cleaner assembly. Having both switches also allows for activation when firing either left or right handed. Pretty good prices from Botach. https://botach.com/streamlight-tlr-rm2-rail-mounted-gun-light/ https://www.streamlight.com/en/products/detail/index/tlr-rm2 Thoughts?!
  5. Agree with Tycoon on the low end of the affordable spares package! Along with those 2 items I carry spare pins and the trigger guard pin spring (018J) as Benelli calls it; otherwise referred to as the trigger pin bushing retaining spring clamp. Not a bad idea to package up all your small OEM parts and carry them as spares as well.
  6. I watched the video as well. It would appear that once the handguard is assembled to the mounting blocks, that it would remain a single piece and could be easily removed when disassembling the gun. BUT, the video does not show or state that. Also, all 8 MLOK slots at the 3 and 9 o'clock position are unusable due to the gas pistons -- that limits options for lights and switches.

    Benelli Plant?

    Hmmmm. Any pictures of Bridgette?!
  8. Depending on the choke wrench used, it can rub or grind the muzzle with flush chokes like what is in the first picture. Other than that, I'd go along with Truckcop.
  9. Oh crap Stranger...I was busy typing while you were already posting!! 😬 Guys, listen to what SD says!!
  10. https://forums.benelliusa.com/topic/22840-surefire-m300-vs-m600df-light-for-m4/ https://forums.benelliusa.com/topic/22905-laser-sight-for-benelli-m4/ Gents - Some recent links here for some background. The Scouts will mount directly to the IWC light mount without using the pic rail if that's the way you want to go. Or, you can order the pic rail from IWC and go that way for a more easier removal -- not exactly a QD release lever, but faster. The pic rail option also allows you to mount the light a little higher or lower (1/4"?) depending on how you mount the pic rail to the IWC light mount. The mounting holes for the pic rail are not drilled dead center so you can mount it upside down to change the position slightly. If looking for a laser/light combo, I wouldn't rule out Streamlight (TLR-2 HL R or G (laser)) as they are pretty capable and appear to be cheaper than Surefire. You'll have to use the pic rail on the IWC mount to make these work Laser/Light combos work. Think about light/laser activation options as the toggle switch on the L/L combos can be hard to keep your thumb on while firing. At least that's my experience with the TLR-2 on my Springfield 4 mm pistol. https://arisakadefense.com/ Here is a site for checking out mounting and switch options...just one of many. The links above contain other site links that will keep you searching and shopping. BAd news is much is out of stock right now.
  11. As I mentioned on my post above, I just used the velcro loop portion with adhesive on the receiver and called it good to go -- like you suggested here. I have not removed the portion from the receiver but from older posts on this topic, I doubt there would be a problem. Good news is, the velcro on the receiver hasn't shown any signs of peeling off.
  12. Has anyone tried these sights? https://dsgarms.com/iron-sights-bnl60795
  13. https://www.brownells.com/shooting-accessories/speedloaders-accessories/shotgun-shell-holders/detachable-side-ammo-carrier-prod31882.aspx Clacker - Brownells shows the VCS shell carrier In-Stock at $21.99.
  14. You bet!! Always fun geeking on the gun if you can't be shooting it!
  15. Gents - I had a Mesa Tactical rail/side saddle combo installed for a while but found the shells would fall out upon discharge if I had them installed upside down which is my preferred way of carrying extra rounds. It's also pretty heavy. I got rid of it and went with the very simplistic method in the below link. Vang Comp uses a plate with velcro attached that is mounted to the receiver. The shell carrier is then installed on the plate with velcro. The plate is only available for Rem and Moss shotguns, so like others, I just bought the shell carrier (from Brownells) and used adhesive backed velcro to install the loop portion on the receiver. You'll need to cut a small hole in the velcro to accommodate the trigger housing pin. I don't have as much experience running and gunning with this system as others on this forum but they seem to like as the shell retention is really good. https://www.vangcomp.com/product/vcs-detachable-side-ammunition-carrier/
