Newbie, M1014 upgrades and ammo choice? in Benelli Posted Thursday at 04:32 AM 3 hours ago, LowBoost said: 1) I plan on getting a Briley 3Gun MLok handguard. I would prefer the 13" version, which I need to remove the factory sling adapter and ring. Is there any advantage or disadvantage from 8" or 13" handguard that I may be overlooking?

I'm partial to quality of Arisaka mounts though. 3 hours ago, LowBoost said: 4) Any experience what works best between RMR, SRO or H2/T2 optic? Didn't try SRO, but did play around with an RMR and T2, both on Scalar mounts. I preferred the RMR, bit that's personal. Both were fine and quality. 3 hours ago, LowBoost said: 5) Any recommended or must have upgrades? Besides weight and looks is there any other benefit from the Briley carbon extended tube? Sling. Trigger. CF tube if you're chasing weight savings. 3 hours ago, LowBoost said: I already have the FFT 3/4 charge handle and plan on getting the extended bolt release. Once I get the extended mag ext tube, which brand of follower, would you recommend? Follower honestly doesn't matter much. It holds the spring and pushes the round. Not rocket science. Just get one made in the US as they're all pretty much the same. 3 hours ago, LowBoost said: I live 20 minutes away from Briley, should I just spend some extra money and have them do the trigger work and install their carbon tube and handguard? Maybe and extended carrier? If you buy their trigger, only they can install the trigger. They won't send it to you to install. Install the tube and guard yourself... That's easy.
