Shell ejection wearing off anodized coating?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I just picked up my new m4 a few days ago and after putting a few (aluminum) snap-caps

through it and 50 rounds of target load, I have noticed that ejection of the shells seems to

be nicking the anodizing off the receiver, just above the bolt (with bolt closed, the

scratching on the receiver is right above the "BENELLI" stamp on the bolt).


I realize that this is not much of an issue, as it's only cosmetic, but I'm a bit

disappointed that the finish is wearing on my brand new m4. Is this something

any of you have experienced? Am I doing something wrong?


I took some pictures of the wear:








(where (dot) should be replaced with . as I don't yet have link posting available to me).


Thank you all for your thoughts!
