    When you get into doing things like this, they all require "gunsmithing" to achieve desired results. If not, your just installing a new carburetor without tuning it afterwards.
    It may work ok, and you can brag that you have it installed but in the end its not race ready.

    Kinda sorta not exactly. A&S has copied benelli critical dimensions...but How? Did they call and get the tdp? Doubtful. My guess is that they got a few and modeled them up. But were those on the small or large end, and will A&S be able to keep their tolerances so small that this is fine , or did they copy the tightest 10% and do they have 15% in variance of their own , while benelli has the tdp, and shoots their say, 20% variance right down the middle, ensuring that x percent of A&S parts are outside the spec? We dunno...

    Here's another kicker....I just tried the A&S trigger guard assembly in my other M4 and it has less effort doing a HDSOC..

    Is A&S ever going to Man up and say where they got the dimensions from?? Or are they going to continue their ambiguity? Great way to make a weapon knowingly unsafe..

    Will Briley, Geissele, FFT, etc. release where they got their FCG specs from?As long as the pin-holes line up, which is incumbent upon the purchaser to check, just like headspacing on an AR bolt, it's not going to be unsafe.I have had OEM Benelli aluminum FCG's that didn't even fit the same way in t he same firearm because of pin hole locations.Benelli hand-fits some of their FCG's.This tells me that Benelli has enough variance that YOU the BUYER needs to verify pin-hole locations before swapping in your FCG, as the OEM has been known to hand-fit the FCG components before.*Note "Safe" does not mean "optimal function". It simply means that there will be sufficient engagement of critical bearing surfaces.
