M4 1014 "Fixed Modified Barrel / Choke" Slug Friendly??


Recommended Posts

Hello All-

I''m New to the Benelli M4 I wanted to clarify some things. Ive done a search on shooting slugs through a modified choke but cant seem to find a post specific to the 1014 fixed modified choke barrel and the results shooting slugs through through it. I will be shooting more Bird and Buck shot, but occasionally I my want to through a few slugs down range especially to dial in the Iron sights and or a Red Dot / Hologram if I decide to go that route. of course since the barrel is smooth bore I would only use rifled slugs.  

1. Am I safe to put slugs down the fixed Modified barrel

2. Will the M4 eat Low recoil (1150 - 1300) 1oz 

3. Any damage to the bore to be concerned about

4. How far out can I expect accuracy before the tighter choke starts to hinder results 


Thanks and I appreciate the feedback. 


ps. great forum by the way, learning a lot here.

I shot a bunch of slugs through a modified choke on an m4 without any I'll effect. Others worry about it I chose not to. Later I did switch it out for a more open choke ( I believe it was light modified size ). Either way there was no damage to the barrel or choke threads running the factory mod. choke.

Thanks! Appreciate the feedback. I'm surprised the gun came with a "fixed choke barrel" but clearly my fault for not doing more research. In any case, as long as I can put slugs and 00 buck down it i'm happy (actually ecstatic). Even if the barrel did have the interchangeable chokes, I would more than likely went improved cylinder and left it.
