  2. You may want to consider staying away from the Surefire M80 Rail. The rubber comes in contact the Argo system pistons causing failure to eject under rapid fire. Under single shot fire you will have no problem. Most ranges will not authorize rapid fire. You would never know there was a problem. I was able to find a range that authorizes rapid fire and that is when I realized there was a problem. You could see where the rubber was melting. I sent it back to Surefire. It was determined the problem was on their side . Even know they don't manufacture them any longer they had a few left in stock and sent a new one, no charge. I have since sold it unopened for $300.00 which is a fair price. I went with the B&T Quad Rail which is all aluminum. I have fired at least 500 rounds rapid fire with out one failure. There have been other articles in the past addressing the same problem with the Surefire M80. I hope this helps.
  3. You should always have your HD shotgun attached to your body whether you prefer a single point or two point sling. When clearing your home, God forbid you ever need to, a worst case scenario is that you loose control of your weapon in a struggle. I prefer a single point mounting platform. It would be extremely difficult to loose control of my weapon if a struggle were to occur. If a struggle were to occur, from the ready position, I would still be able to take out an individuals lower extremities.
  4. Sorry to hear about your M4 cycling problems. I can only go by my experience with my M4 and that is it cycles everything that I run through the weapon. Long or short brass.The Argo system should be cycling anything right out of the box. I would certainly notify Benelli and let them make the decision on what action needs to be taken.
  5. With all do respect I would not call an Aimpoint Comp 4, a Surefire M951 Light, or a Laser Lyte shot gun laser junk. I'm not sure how much you think each item weighs or how you think that my M4 is some how " Out of Balance" but for me its not. I'm not sure what your physical stature is or why you think that my M4 which may be a total of 3 lbs. + heavier than a stock M4 is some how going to matter going from a ready position to a firing position. My M4 does not sit in a safe or the corner of a room collecting dust. I'm at the range at least once a month and fire between 200-250 sabo slugs with all accessories attached. I am authorized to rapid fire my weapon at the indoor range that I go to. I have no problem with control. Not everyone has the physical capabilities to accurately fire their Benelli in that manner whether it has accessories or not. I do. The only time that I had a problem with feeding is when I had a Surefire Tri-Rail and the rubber sides melted and interfered with the ARGO system. That has since been corrected with a B&T quad rail. Weight from one individual to the next is a relative term. My M4 is fit for purpose for many different scenarios relative to me. I have enjoyed our debate and once again to Rasyad, nice job on your weapon. Blessings...
  6. Really nice job. You have kept the lines very clean. As far as the height of the optic, depending on the use of the weapon and lets face it that typically we build our M4 shotguns for the sole purpose of self defense, the height of your optic in relationship to the bore simply does not matter. Other than it not being ecstatically pleasing to some people it will have no effect on the function or accuracy of your weapon. That's why we bore site our weapons. The longest shot that would ever be fired in your average home would be about 35'. Clearing a room 13-15'. What ever height is necessary for you to lay your cheek on the cheek weld in a total black out environment and be able to acquire your red dot 100% of the time is the correct height whether that can be done 1/2" above the receiver or 1-1/2" above the receiver. In my case using my Aimpoint it's the latter. Again, great job on your weapon.
  7. Sorry it took so long to get back with you. This is a Nordick Component oversized bolt release. It took some gunsmithing in regard to drilling a precision hole and tap. I used a drill press. You definitely would not want to try to drill the hole with a hand drill. This is a nicely machined quality part. I preferred the circular bolt release as no matter where I make contact on the Nordick, the bolt releases. I attached a piece of felt behind the bolt release so as not to scratch the receiver when operating. As far as bolt release sitting below receiver, I attached a better pic showing how bolt release is actually sitting on receiver. The bolt release does not sit below the receiver. I hope this helped. Blessings...
  8. Yes. Its actually an older Aimpoint Comp 2. . Again, I would like to be clear in what Unobtanium has stated in post # 28. If you do not need to raise cheek weld the best advise is don't. You will permanently loose the ability to use your ghost ring sites. If you are going to go with a red dot optic, I personally do not believe there is a more battle proven red dot on the market than a Aimpoint Comp series red dot. I have fired well over 1000 rounds using all Sabo slugs. Holds 0 perfectly. Built like a tank. This is the route that I chose to go to accommodate my needs.
  9. As to your statement, you should be absolutely correct. My answer to your statement is that not all body profiles are the same. Before I made these modifications, in the early hours one morning, around 3AM I grabbed my Benelli. It was pitch black and no mater where I rested my cheek on the cheek weld I could not find the Red Dot. No matter if I moved my head up, down, left, or right I simply could not find the Red Dot on the Aimpoint. This was quite alarming. I never had this problem in the day as I could see reference points on the Aimpoint. Take those reference points away and I challenge anyone to re-check your optic platform in a 0 light situation and I mean 0 light. You may be surprised at what you don't see and that may be the "Red Dot". I needed to come up a bit on the Aimpoint. The Quick Detach mount that I purchased brought the Aimpoint up to its current height. Raising the cheek weld 1" was the perfect match to the height of the optic. I now have a functional optic in a 0 light situation 100% of the time. I am very clear in stating that this works for my body profile which is a 5'11" 253 lb. bodybuilder. As far as the weight of the weapon goes, even at 57 the good Lord has Blessed me with the strength of 10 men.(LOL) I wish that I could have kept cheek weld the same height so as to utilize ghost ring site if need be but for me this is the height that works. As far as time and money, $10.00 parts / 1 hour labor. (Does not include cost of Q/D mount)
  10. I am also getting up in age at 57. I find that the push / pull method of fireing my Benelli M4 has done wonders for my shoulder and the effects from recoil. I have a B&T quad rail so I was able to install a Magpul Fore Grip. I am now able to push on the pistal grip handle as I pull on the fore grip. This method of fireing weapon keeps any recoil off of my shoulder. I can easily fire 200 rounds rapid fire or not and have no effects on my shoulder from recoil.
  11. You're welcome. Best of hope with customizing your Benelli M4 to suite your needs.
  12. I purchased 1" long steel washers, longer screws, and electrical heat shrink tubing at Ace Hardware. The 3 screws in the top of the riser must be replaced with longer screws. I used the heat shrink tubing on the washers. Simply install the longer washers between the underside of the cheek riser and the top of the collapsible stock and screw down with newly purchased longer screws. Depending on what type of optic mount you go with will depend on the height of washers. This is a very sold platform. (Be advised that when you raise the cheek weld you will no longer be able to use the Ghost Ring Sites).
