Hi all, I had a request to do a detailed pictorial on the disassembly of the Shell Stop. Removal of the Shell Stop is the same for the factory and GG&G model. In fact, the GG&G model is simply a modified factory Shell Stop. Start out by unloading the weapon and setting the ammuntion away from the work area. Field strip the M4, remove the barrel assembly, bolt carrier and trigger group. The stock may be left on. This is a view of the inside of the receiver. It shows the placement of the Shell Stop Spring. The spring is a loose fit, so you should note its position before disassembly.
I have always wanted a benelli tactical model and I just happend to stumble onto a really nice M3 convertible on the used rack at one of my local gun stores this past week. I took her home, did some research, and it turns out its really a find. HK import marks, one piece 7 shell mag tube, pistol grip stock, and ghost ring sights. So I really like it but the stock just is aggrivatingly long compared to my 1100's and the bolt release is really hard to find in a hurry. Theres just not much info out there on the M3 and im really wanting to know if i can fit the m4/m1014 collapsible stock and if i do get an oversize bolt release which one will not interfere with the action in pump mode. Ive been looking at the arredondo, GG&G, and DMW release lever. I saw an oversize circular button but i do not want to permanently mod this gun and some of this stuff required drilling and tapping. My buddy just said practice the "benelli speed load" and bypass the bolt release altogether. Do the M1 or M2 barrels fit or would the way the pump locks into the barrel ring on semi not allow switch barrel capability, I'd love to make it my new dove gun by a cyl bore 19" barrel maybe alittle loose for that. Primarily i bought it to compete in some local 3 gun matches. Has anyone tried that green hull, phospate steel base winchester military surplus buck loads? I found some real cheap and I'd like to have afew cases of "00" around the house. I shoot alot of steel case ammo thru my pistols and rifles. Never had any issues, but i keep hearing wolf shotshells have issues and have blown up guns especially slug loads. Should I avoid the wolf shells? The low price is very enticing. What kind of patterns can I expect for say #7.5, 1 1/8oz shot payload out of the 19.75" cyl choke barrel? Thanks yall. The M3 has always intrigued me but theres so little out there on it.
My M4 that i just purchased has a small button Bolt release. However i have seen pictures (primarily of the M1014, but a couple on what i believe are civilian M4) that have a much larger, rectangular Bolt release. I have done a few cursory searches but an unable to find where i might purchase this modification, does anyone know where it can be aquired? or is this not a modification for the public?
