  1. Okay, a quick update.  The internal star washer from Lowes didn't work. Stock loosened again after a single range trip.  Put the Nord washer on and it is solid.  No loosening after a good range trip.  I will look to Nord washers in the future if I need to secure a bolt against vibration.  And by the way, I didn't use the stainless steel version of the Nord-lock washer - I just used the cheaper option.

    What is the size of the lock washer you used? Any experience with the NORD brand of stainless steel lock washer? Thanks.

    I purchased an internal tooth washer from Lowes.  It was the 5/16" size and the brand was Hillman.  I don't know if it works yet as I haven't had a chance to shoot it.  I also purchased one of the Nord washers in case the tooth washer doesn't work.  This was less than $1 from boltdepot.com.  The shipping was more than the washer.  LOL!

  3. Nice bambihunter!  Looks like the adventure continues.  I may want to eventually get a shotgun that would be used primarily for skeet since some of the ranges frown upon using a pistol grip for target shooting.  I don't know why :) as it works for me.  

  4. When I first purchased this gun a few months ago, it would not cycle target loads reliably.  After breaking it in (shooting about 100 rounds of buckshot and slugs), it cycles target loads perfectly.  It shoots steel targets at 100 yards no problem and I also love it for shooting clays.  I am new at shooting clays and it is a blast!  So far, I have put on a Mesa Urbino stock (must have for my size), a Vicker's sling, Browncoat Tactical shell cards, IWC light mount (love this mount) and an Olight Odin light. 

    I ordered a Carrier Comp tube and looking forward to installing it.  

    This shotgun does everything well.  Anyway, just thought I'd share a little love!

     

     

  5. I love this stock as the standard one is just too long for me.  The Urbino stock fits just right.  Hope I don't sound too much like Goldilocks, but I digress.   The Urbino stock shoots loose about every two range sessions and I have to retighten with a flat head screwdriver.  I read on this forum it is a disaster to loctite the threads, so I started looking for another solution.  It seems the spring lock washer isn't a very good method of preventing rotation.  This video shows why.  I am thinking of ordering some of these Nord Lock washers.  Can anyone think of any downsides?  You can get a pack of 20 of these for about $15 on Amazon.  Just need to measure the bolt size when I get a chance.   

     

     

  6. I shot my brand new M4 for the first time recently and have this exact ammo - Fiocchi 00 Buck Defense Dynamics.  They didn't cycle at all.  Not a single one.   Unfortuntately, I bought two boxes of this.  

    I also tried some Fiocchi Exact Buck shot, 9 pellet, 1325 fps.  They all cycled except one which nearly cycled, but just got caught by the bolt head as it was going out.  Maybe that was just unlucky.  

    I also tried some Federal Top Gun Target, 8 pellet, 1200 fps.  Those started cycling better after I shot some higher power rounds.  Now, they hang up once in a while.  I am hoping it will get better as the gun breaks in.  

    My son (12 yrs old) likes to shoot the lower power rounds, so he'll load in one of the low power rounds and just manually cycle it out.  

    I tried some Aguila High Velocity 0 Buck - that cycled perfectly and had quite a kick!   All the slugs cycled perfectly also with a helluva monster kick!

    The only mod I have done so far is the Mesa Tactical fixed stock as the Benelli fixed stock was too long for me and I wasn't able to shoulder it properly.  If the Mesa was another inch shorter, it would probably be perfect.  I do like the limbsaver pad on it.     

     

  7. Hello, I'm a new M4 owner and I've been to the range twice and shot a few slugs, buckshot rounds and target and low-recoil home defense rounds.  The target rounds and low-recoil rounds didn't cycle reliably, so I'm planning to continue with the higher power stuff for now.   

     

    While cleaning the bolt assembly, I noticed scratches on both sides of the link where the link moves in the bolt assembly and noticed the link has a little side to side play which causes rubbing on the sides of the bolt assembly.  Just wanted to check if this is typical/expected wear after a couple of light shooting sessions?
