  1. The follower in the magazine tube is a cheap and easy part to replace.
  2. I have not shot bird shot with the M4, but I presume if I go out and shoot clays, it will cycle OK?
  3. Just looking at the pictures, the replacement disconnector visually seems to sit further forward. Get an Amazon set of shim gages Shim gage, and figure out how thick a shim you need to fit between the disconnector and the trigger housing to get it to work correctly. Then, cut a thin piece of that shim and silver solder it on to the front of the disconnector. I get it that when you buy something, you want it to work out of the box, but between being unable to identify which part is faulty, plus with no replacements being available, plus the vendor taking the attitude that you have to return all or nothing .... it looks like you need to fix this one on your own it you want it. As an aside, what motivates the market for triggers and disconnectors? To get to 922(r), I was under he impression that after the magazine tube and follower, and forestock, you only needed a hammer to get complient. Why spend the extra and higher complexity to buy the rest of the TG?
  4. Booth 3657, in with Gear Head Works.
  5. I need to stop by the Holosun booth anyhow. Maybe we'll cross paths.
  6. What are you exhibiting? I'll be there with a booth, but this year I'm thinking about scaling back the booth, so I can spend time seeing the show, rather than managing the booth.
  7. ShootingSight.com is making them now. EDM cut S7, with NiB coating. A whole lot less than 1700, and including free shipping.
  8. I'd make that option 2 - looks to be a spinner.
  9. Must be a burr in the pin hole on mine, because it looks like the hole is smaller on the inside than the outside. If it is supposed to be a straight hole, then you can just drive the pin inwards. In thinking about it, one way would be to permanently fix the detent. You would slot the tip of the handle, so you insert, then rotate it to lock in place. You would then need some sort of releasable anti-rotate concept on the handle end.
  10. Dammit! I got my hands full, and here you go throwing me a challenge that I'm thinking about .... plungers with detent balls exist down to 1/4" easily. I'll need to look if there are smaller. If you get rid of the factory detent and just leave the hole, it might work. However getting the factory detent out might be a challenge. Looks to be a blind hole. Near term, I might make several of each to send out for testing.
  11. I'm designing a replacement charging handle for the Benelli M4. I'm not in love with Beretta's tri-cut indent on the tip that holds it in. It allows the handle to fall somewhere between a spinner, and a non-rotating charging handle as it has 'bumps' in the rotation. But if you over rotate it, or get it between bumps, it can start walking out on you. So I'm curious to hear, who likes: 1. Benelli design as-is, where a part-rotation makes disassembly easy. 2. A free rotating spinner that you just yank sideways to pop out. 3. A non-rotating handle that you also have to yank out straight. Thoughts?
  12. I was playing with that today, trying square cut versus radius cut versus drilling holes for the detent in the bolt to pop into. Because of the radius tip on the detent, it doesn't really prevent rotation, and if you do rotate it, the detent pin begins to lift so the handle can start walking out. I have an idea how to do it so it won't spin, and you have to just straight pull to remove it. Or I could make it a spinner. Actually, on that thought, I'll start a new topic and see what people prefer.
  13. Thought you all might get a kick out of this. I'm making an M4 charging handle (well, likely several varieties). Stem will be case-hard steel for wear, while the handle will be aluminum for weight savings. Here is a video of the threads being cut (I love my CNC lathe), as well as some 'nearly complete' parts.

  14. So this is a thread from 8 years ago ... ShootingSight makes a 922R compliant hammer if you need it. Wire cut S7 billet tool steel, with NIB coating.
