Benelli M4 model 11703 QUESTION


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone , I am new to this forum and just wanted to check in. I just tracked down and purchased a Benelli M4 model 11703 and payed dearly for it. I pick it up next weekend. I along with everyone else who wants this shotgun that has been looking and looking and FOUND one and I jumped on it right away. I read a thread titled "MY M4 BROKE" Now I am a bit concerened that I may have purchased something that I may regret. Does anyone have anything that they can share good or bad about the model 11703 that I should know. Or am I overreacting. Thanks , and it's great to be here. Michael

I have an 11703 "low recoil" version. It has been in my possession since 11/15/05, with 250 rounds of slugs, including Remington standard 1oz 2 3/4 "Sluggers", as well as Federal Tactical Reduced Recoil rounds cycled through it. I've put another 200 rounds of Remington 00 3" Magnum shells, and Federal Tactical 2 3/4" Reduced Recoil rounds through it.


So far, no problems of any kind... I inspect the weapon after cleaning following each range session, the bolt carrier assembly is showing no signs of cracks. It's a **** fine shotgun, and a pleasure to fire.


Mine was new-in-box, and I've registered it with Benelli as far as the warranty goes. My expectation is that they'll honor the warranty if problems develop, so I'm not worried about what I believe are probably random metallurgical failures with other weapons.


My M4 eats whatever I've fired through it without complaint, and I expect it will continue to do so. I just wish slug rounds were cheaper, so I could use it at the range more often...
