Will M4 11707 reliably cycle and shoot low recoil slugs? I'm the "lucky" recipient of a large case of Fiocchi Low Recoil Aero Slug 1oz shells as a pre-Christmas gift. They're 2-3/4", 1oz, 1150FPS, low recoil. With the support/permission of the wife to buy a nice shotgun like my BIL's. Trouble is, his Panzer Gen4 AR-12 won't cycle these slug shells! Every one jams! His Panzer shoots 1150FPS bird/buck shot perfectly fine! The Panzer needs 1300FPS to 1500FPS slugs according to a the "Shotgun Guy" at a local gun shop. It seems the AR gas piston has trouble operating properly with low pressure slugs. We switched the Panzer's low velocity and high velocity pistons around for all mixes of shot and slugs. Low velocity slugs all failed, birdshot and buckshot at any velocity worked flawlessly. Nothing changed. Shotgun Guy suggested a higher quality shotgun. This Benelli M4 11707 uses a different cycling system than the cheap Turkish AR 12 gauge guns. Any insight before I spend $2,000 on another shotgun? Thanks in advance! Robert ( and Lisa )
Hello All, I am new to this forum, so I apologize if I have asked a question that has already been answered somewhere else. Before asking, though, I spent a few hours searching without success to see if it has been answered already. What parts are the most likely to fail or need replacement on an M4? I would like to know what parts might be a good idea to have on hand ahead of time. As I understand it, the M4 is incredibly reliable and is unlikely to have a failure or need replacements due to wear. I am simply trying to plan ahead. Maybe another good question would be what have other forum M4 owners experienced as far as part replacement needs? Has anyone had any parts fail or wear out and need replacement? Thanks to everyone for your help!
