  1. I think this is the most impressive zombie thread I’ve ever encountered.

    Good luck with this.
  3. I’ll take them both for one dollar!
  4. Welcome DEPK, 1st time SG owner myself (owned handguns for decades though). The 9-pellet Federal 00 was exactly the ammo I also had issues with. This particular thread might be six months old, but you’ll see this topic come up just about monthly if you stick around. Heck, this thread was revived just a couple of weeks ago. Awesome info and even better folks here. Ask any question that comes to mind, never seen someone be given anything but genuine info outside of the occasional (and obvious) troll. -Rex
  5. Seconded. Mr. Danger has also been instrumental in my own M4 journey. Here Here!
  6. Sorry, at the risk of asking a ridiculous question: Is this legit?
  7. Interesting idea. I much prefer this style of tailcap and hadn’t even thought of removing the shroud for this application.
  8. Funny enough, the next stop was Target where she probably bought a bunch of sh*t we didn’t need. I fell right into her trap...
  9. Thanks SF, she’s amazing. *As amazing as Jolly Roger’s story, only real...
  10. Mine is kind of a funny story... I’d had a Glock pistols for a bunch of years and carry regularly in a few states we’ve lived in. Somewhere in the last year I decided that the home needed a shotgun and I started doing research. I’d always been aware of the Benelli brand, just like Mossberg, Remington, etc. but I had limited experience with SGs, let alone had an opinion on a SG manufacturer or model. In April I decided I just needed to make a decision on one, narrowed it down to a Mossberg 590 or a Remington 870 after a bunch of review reading and video watching, and finally settled on the 870. Throughout my research I’d show various models to my wife, she’d see me watching videos, etc. so she kind of knew what was on the table and the various prices. She’s always been cool with guns in the house and was fully supportive of getting a SG. On May 4th, I said to her that I was going to head down to the LGS the next day and tinker around with some SGs, might even start the paperwork on one. She mentioned that we had some other errands to run anyway, why not just take her and the kids (6 & 8 years old) and they’d poke around the store while I did my thing? OK cool, sounds like fun. She asked me what I was thinking about buying, I told her the 870 but joked that I was going to ask if they had a Benelli M4, you know, just to actually hold, fantasize about owning and then come back to reality as I handed it back to them. The next day we roll into the LGS as planned and the clerk asks what he can help with. It’s early, nearly no one else in the shop except employees so there are 3-4 of them listening to our conversation. I tell the guy I’m there to check out some SGs, have the 870 at the top of my list and can I hold one. As he’s turning toward the racks and racks of long guns, my wife says, “Wait one sec” to the clerk, turns to me and says, “What’s that other one you were talking about? A Benelli?” The clerk looks back with this goofy “yeah right”/“what did I just hear?” grin and I say, “She’s kidding, I joked about getting an M4.” Shit you not, my wife looks the guy dead in the eyes and says to the clerk, “Please grab him an M4”, guy looks to me and I just shrug stupidly, so he puts one in my hands. After shouldering it (and a bunch of others for fit/feel), Benelli won out and that was all she wrote. Wife even further elevated her legend status around town that day. The last one they had on the rack had clearly been handled, had some marks and scratches on it, so they ordered a new one from the gettin’ place and after some paperwork and installing a new long gun safe in the home, I was the proud owner of my very own Benelli M4.
  11. YMMV, but a couple of months ago I changed the original mag tube on my six-month old M4. It needed maybe 30 seconds of medium heat from a new DeWalt heat gun. Could have “needed” even less than that, potentially even none(?). My point: If your M4 is within a year old, your experience might be like mine and need nearly no heat to break the original mag tube free. Best of luck.

    FFT Forend- Questions

    Love it... I currently have a CC mag tube + spring + follower onboard. Extended carrier by who do you recommend, JR?

    FFT Forend- Questions

    Damnit, I was cautiously optimistic about FFT’s offering but quietly expected this response. Appreciate you both. I have a USA-made mag tube and follower. Can I be so bold as to ask for recommendations on what that 3rd compliant piece should be? Thanks again.
  14. I’m looking to complete my 922r compliance journey and have a couple of questions about FFT’s forend for anyone who has experience with them: -From a feel and fit & finish perspective, is it largely identical to the stock Benelli forend? -Any reason using one would cause issues with my IWC M4 Light Mount? -Anyone gone to the FFT forend and been unsatisfied? -Any other other options that are similar to the stock Benelli forend that I should consider over FFT’s? Thanks in advance.
  15. Appreciate the input, multiple last-round cycles indicate adequate power. That said, Remarkable: Thanks for the words of caution. I bought two springs from Kip for exactly this reason and may just put the unadulterated spring in and let six rounds suffice.
  16. I modified my CC mag tube spring to accommodate my preferred loads and I want to verify it maintains enough power to reliably cycle all 7 rounds. At the risk of asking a stupid question, is there a way I can safely cycle through the tube to test this other than go run through a bunch of rounds at the range*? Is it as simple as just cycling a bunch of times using the charging handle and ensuring the last rounds make it onto the lifter? *I will be visiting the range immediately after I install the Meprolight sights, just trying to answer the tube spring question in advance

    Easy decision (replace), thx SD.

    Before I make a trip to Ace, does the nut need to be replaced when the front blade is reinstalled? Feel like I read that somewhere but can’t find it again.
  19. I appreciate the thoughtful response. As a matter of fact, I myself need just one more component to achieve 922r compliance after installing a Carrier Comp 7-rd tube and CC follower, thus my interest. I’ll stay tuned for updates on readiness. -Rex
  20. Hello sir. I’ve been watching your posts since maybe idea inception of your new hammer. I am both intrigued and inclined to buy but, given the criticality of the hammer within the working confines of an auto-shotgun, what compelling argument do you offer to purchase your offering (outside of the obvious 922r compliance gain)? *Asked with the utmost respect

    Any chance you recall the size? If no, I can just take the front sight in and figure it out. Thanks Sigma!

    Terrific, thanks SD!
