  1. Final update on Carrier Comp 7rd titanium mag tube: ordered placed first week of March and received today, so roughly 4 1/2 months. Just had time to glance at it but quality appears to be impeccable.
  2. You could probably figure it out in reverse by looking at the components and comparing those to the various model descriptions, but I have had trouble myself finding an all-inclusive list that describes the features of each model. Some of the model distinctions are pretty subtle (eg. 11715 vs 11721 is just night sights vs regular sights). Maybe start by posting a picture...? Some of the experienced people here could probably nail it down pretty quickly with a few key questions after that.
  3. Just to update the backlog timeframe currently going on at Carrier Comp: M4 7 round titanium mag tube order placed on March 5th. Just received a call (850 area code) to arrange credit card payment and to inform me that shipment is expected in approximately 2 weeks. So, slightly longer than the early to mid-June estimate from a month and a half ago. They are very pleasant to converse with, both via email and over the phone.
  4. I'm not that big on matching my purse and shoes - ordered your new piece as is. 👍
  5. I get that AA looks cool, but is there a practical purpose to the AA design.? I am new to all of this and would like the opinions of people who have been doing it for a while. By chance I came across the AA handguard when it was in stock and took a pass. Is it just me or does that look like a bear to clean? One of the things I appreciated about the M4 was the elegance of simplicity and I have a personal preference for the minimalist approach. I get that it's fun to trick out a sweet gun, but some of the things I've seen seem over the top and remind me of a 4 cylinder front wheel drive fart-can coupe with a huge plastic spoiler on the rear. No offense! 😊

    LE M4

    One way is you can search on Gunbroker.com for Benelli M4 11715 or 11721. Recent auctions had these topping out at about $3200 - $3300, but lately there's been a glut and there are currently 11 listed for auction and/or buy now, with the cheapest buy nows (quantity 3) listed for $2,799.99.
  8. Just curious if anyone who has this has an opinion of the 4 shell carrier vs 6 shell carrier in terms of practicality, function, and comfort. Thank you.
  9. That's a nice looking piece. Well done. I'd be another vote for the black color.
  10. Thanks for the review. I like the simplicity of this design as well as the large manipulation surface.
  11. I have checked ebay a few times - same insanity over there with even the New Zealand clone going for $500 plus. Sitting out the madness for now. These are the beanie babies of the gun world. About the only place to get them at a (ahem) "reasonable" price is to luck out on benelli parts dot net if you can find the 30 second window they open for pre-order. Not too happy that FFT being a re-seller (as well as the Benelli OEM site I believe) requires LE creds to buy the collapsable stock, but that's their prerogative. What boggles my mind is that no one is making a solid, reliable clone given the ridiculous demand. Pro Mag used to make a convincing-looking clone but the reviews panned it as garbage and it's been out of production for a long time.
  12. Yikes! Time to sit this out and watch the trust fund babies scrum for it.
  13. Sooooo... the M1014 has a collapsable stock that won't collapse because of the fixed length recoil tube, and the 11707 has a 3-position recoil tube with a standard stock...? You can't make this stuff up. 😝
  14. Same - order placed 3/5. I sent an email a couple days ago to make sure I hadn't missed a call or email. They were very nice explaining the delays and challenges they're facing. I was told to expect a call (850 area code) early to mid June.
