922R compliance a waste of money?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever been in trouble with 922R compliance for the Benelli M4? The M4 is my favorite shotgun, and I'm interested in getting into 3 gun this month. All the guys there tell me to not worry about 922R.

 

Looking at parts... it'll be $400ish just to get into compliance with a full length magazine tube, hammer, follower, and forearm for a Benelli M4 with 2 shot extension and collapsible stock.

I did it. I did it because I have too much to lose to get caught with an illegal weapon and face federal charges. Probably nobody is ever going to come up to you at a range and demand to inspect your shotgun for compliance.

 

It doesn't happen that way. It happens like an accident or peripheral to some other incident. It's worth the insurance and peace of mind to me.

 

Possessing illegal weapons is not something to scoff at if you value your lifestyle, home, job, etc., etc.

I also did it as well, I'm very risk averse. Besides, actually spending the money gives you a better product. The full length mag tube from CarrierComp is compliant, no need for an extension, and it's lighter/stronger than the original. The follower from FFT is brighter colored and aluminum, so it should hold up longer. The Geissele hammer is more preferred than the Benelli stock hammer, and I believe FFT sells a virtually identical foreend (or you could always buy the FFT disconnector).

 

Once you buy it all, you'll have a better, compliant, and more re-sell-able weapon.

Forgot to mention, a US made full length tube and follower, and a hammer is all you need. 3 parts and it's GTG. I'm pretty sure that's less than $300.00, It's been awhile.:o

Parts counts hold be 4 US manufactured pieces if the collapsible stock is used.

 

As far as 922 compliance, is it really worth the risk? Mine is compliant, it's only the smart thing to do.

Made my M4 922 compliant after adding Carriercomp magazine extension just to avoid any BATFE issues. I have witnessed what the BATFE has done to FFLs and individuals that are not in compliance with all their regulations, and it is not a pretty sight.

Write your Congressman and Senators about all the out-of-date and unnecessary BATFE regulations.

I didn't know about the 4 part deal with a collapsable.:o I live in Ca. and a C stock on a M4 is verboten.

I did it, too much to lose. My normal FFL owner didn't, said his BATFE Contact told him not to worry (and he's probably correct).

I just see it as an additional charge to be added if you get arrested for anything, so I took that option away from the Feds.

First rule of Fight Club . . .

 

+1 It always cracks me up when I see posts like this. "Hey folks, I'm thinking about breaking the law and just wanted to announce it on a public forum that might be monitored by police so that there is a written record of it."

BATF told Benelli to stop selling the H20 after Benelli attempted to skirt the law by having the M4's coated in NP3. I believe 60 - 70 M4's with collapsible stocks and full length magazine tubes made it out into circulation before they were shut down.

 

Many of the upgrades are worthwhile on their own merit for the M4. So 922 compliance isn't all terrible and a complete waste of money.

Yep...the Geissele stuff for the M4 particularly, is better than OEM.

922r is the legacy of former NRA Lifemember GHW Bush.

 

I thought 922r was Clinton thank you to all of us?

Oh, and I fixed it for you too;)

It was Bush Sr. who established the notion of 'not suitable for sporting purposes' shortly after becoming president (the import ban bypassing Congress), and that is the basis of the pointless, nonsensical 922r.

1989 import ban was all Bush Sr. Clinton was the 1994 Assault a weapon ban with the sunset clause.

 

Thank you both, did not know that.

 

Glad he only went one term as he didn't believe in anything he said (guy he lost too wasn't that great either)
