Benelli M4 -- Weights


Recommended Posts

I fired up my postal scale at work and got some fairly accurate weight readings (within a tenth of an ounce) for some of the parts. I found some of the weights to be surprising.


Benelli M4 Factory Handguards: 5.0 Ounces

Surefire M80 Rail System: 7.9 Ounces

Surefire Ladder Rail: 0.4 Ounces

Daniel Defense Picatinny Rail Sling Mount: 1.5 Ounces

Magpul XTM Panel (two pieces): 0.25 Ounces

Factory Top Rail with screws and washers: 1.59 Ounces


I was expecting the factory handguards to weigh less, and for the M80 to weigh more stripped. Before adding a light or any other crap, my weight is 11.4 Ounces assembled. This doesn't take into account the fact that I removed the factory front sling mount. That's probably worth half an ounce. Deduct the weight of the removed factory handguards also and we're at 5.5 Ounces removed.


So I've added a total of 5.9 Ounces so far.


Almost the amount that Kip's Titanium tube will remove.

I'm interested to hear how much recoil the comp reduces. I imagine the weight is around 5 or 6 ounces for the comp alone. The magazine nut might add several ounces over stock too unless Kip has a magic rabbit.


If you're going to get one, you might as well get both.


I don't know yet if it is worth the weight/length penalty.
