Proud new owner of a M4!

After having the gun on layaway for longer that I would've liked, it's finally home.

 

Kip's tube is on and a follower from Brownell's is in.

 

Apart from that, it's stock. I don't plan on putting an optic on until I've shot it a lot just with the iron sights.

 

Next question: is the only other U.S. made part currently available the foregrip from Surefire? Anything else that would improve the functionality of the weapon and bring me under the magic number re: 922 ®?

Do you have the Brownell's follower part number?

I checked their web site and found only Benelli followers.

Hookster, Thanks for the quick reply. Just the info I needed.

I ordered it today.

Can you recommend the third item I should get to make it legal?

I have Kips extensior and the new follower.

Again, thanks.

 

Hey SKYKING,

Assuming that you do not have a collapsable stock on your M4 you'll want to get a US made forend as your 3rd part. The current choices are the KZ and the Surefire M80. As mentioned above, if you want to wait for a few months, you could use the upcoming Mesa Urbino stock as your 3rd part.

 

pic of new Mesa stock is in post # 34 of this thread

Here's some stuff I posted previously about both the Surefire and the KZ:

Merry Christmas!

Hookster, Thanks for the lead. Ordered the M80 today from National Police Supply. Please tell about the long top rail.

Where did that come from?

Skyking.

 

That's the Sidearmor rail system

Looks like they're on sale right now too!

 

There's a lot of info about the system in old threads. Just put in Sidearmor as a site search

Here's a few:

Hookster, after further review and study, I see the top rail is a KZ, Right?

When you ordered it, it must have been pre drilled for the specific application, M4 benelli/kZ grip because there is not hole at the T14 mark.

How do I order the KZ top rail for use with the Surefire grip?

Is that what you ended up with?

thanks.

Hi SKYKING,

Did you see my previous post (post #10) in this thread?

The Sidearmor rail is the one I believe you are refering too. That's the one I currently use. Take a look at post #10 and see if I'm answering your question. If you are talking about the KZ let me know and I'll try to answer your questions about it. Here's the source for the KZ if that's the one you want:

But the KZ and the Surefire you ordered could not be used together at the same time

 

Take Care,

 

Hookster
