  1. You could also grind down the wings. My 870 ghost ring doesn’t have the wings and you do have a much better field of view. I may go ahead and do it myself.
  2. I got the GG&G bolt release for a few reasons. It wasn’t a modify your existing one type of kit. It comes complete with the whole assembly. I can handle to modifying but I did this to have a spare. Second it doesn’t have huge logos all over it. Third it has a slot so it doesn’t rotate. Fourth it doesn’t stick out as much as other either.
  3. You can’t do that on the M4. The trigger has a slot that goes into the stock. It’s what stops the stock from coming loose. If you install trigger before stock, you won’t be able to install the stock because the trigger will get in the way.

    M4 Final Setup

    1. First time I installed it, it did move while practicing dummy loading. It was because I had only slightly tightened it. After that I tightened it down well and it hasn’t budged after many life fire training sessions and a match. I’m easily over 1000 rounds with it on. Make sure you tighten down the magazine tube cap first, and check that barrel is seated properly against receiver, before tightening set screws. Otherwise the front set screws will sit on the edge of the front mounting location. 2. They have not moved. They do leave a small “dimple” in the finish of the front set screws. Doesn’t bother me but it could bother some. I actually went and made a small recess with the Dremel, so that the set screws have a fixed location to grab. 3. I used blue loctite and it has worked well. Hasn’t loosened, and wasn’t an issue removing forend. I have removed it several times and haven’t had to reapply loctite yet. Like many, I agree that it’s not a great setup with the set screws, but I do like the feel of the grip and Mlok feature. Until something better comes out, this has been doing the job well, despite having to use tools to strip down the shotgun.

    I like to be able to pick up the shotgun and have as much ammo on it as possible. I’m not always wearing something that allows me to put stuff in my belt. Winning matches is not my priority. I use them as training and getting me out of my comfort zone. I agree on the Hayl handguard, but until something better becomes available, it works for me.

    Here’s another screen shot practicing loads. You can see I don’t use muscles at all. Elbow is against body and shotgun is supported up on shoulder. I don’t invert shotgun completely like some do. Makes getting back on target faster too since I don’t have to adjust hands. Have been doing it this way for quite some time with my 870. Long before the 3Gun fad started.

    Weight matters more when I’m shooting and arm is extended and holding up long gun. Not during loading because my shoulder holds the weight. My primary rifle is a G36C precisely because it’s light. A&S trigger frame is definitely in the plans in the near future. Very well designed.

    M4 Final Setup

    I have a somewhat weird way of doing things for a good reason. I was hit by a car and nearly lost my left arm. I’ve had many operations to recover it, and I nearly had it back up 100%. Unfortunately it’s started failing again and I have a hard time keeping it in shape. Due to this, I primarily shot handguns with my right only for many years. That jacked up my tendons in my right arm. Especially because I only shot .40 all those years. I have very little arm strength, so I started loading my shotgun on my shoulder so I wouldn’t have to strong arm it. Long before it as a thing with quad loads. Once load two and four started happening, I just kept doing it the same way. I have the hand stops because of a weak grip. I can’t just hold with a lot of strength in my hands. I just pull on the hand stops. I do the same with my rifles. I do adjust my grip like you, but what I do is shift the hand stop back and forth between my fingers when needed. I generally don’t change my grip when loading. You can see it in the screenshot of a POV video I shot at last Gunfighter match. In the pic I’m wearing a glove on my left hand so I don’t burn myself on the hot barrel. I only load two for the same hand issues. Besides having small hands, I have a hard time retaining the four shells due to the tendon and muscles issues. Despite all that, I still shoot as much as I can and love doing it.

    Ghost load included? No clue. I guess I should weigh it out of curiosity. Will do it and get back to you on that.

    No adapter. Just lube screwdriver and remove hardware from factory buttpad. I comes with a choke that has thread on the end and you thread it to that. It’s specific for the M4. You’ll see when you look it up. I would recommend a lower profile one. Mine had a thick base which makes it stick out a lot. Will eventually swap it out. There’s a ton out there. Look up “match saver”.

    Limbsaver 10403 Standoff breacher is original Benelli made for M4. Taccom match saver. There are much lower profile ones out there I just happen to have this one laying around in the spares box for my 870. I’ve seen ones with M-Lok mounts too

    What video game out of curiosity?

    M4 Final Setup

    Finally got it how I want it. After much research, training and even a Gunfighter match (not 3Gun), this setup works awesome for me. Only thing I would have done differently is the Spuhr handguard, if it had ever made it into production. I would like a shorter stock that doesn’t have a pistol grip, but struck out there. I may fab my own sling loop shell holder on the right side of the stock.
