Mag Tube and Stock Options


Mag Tube and Stock Options   

10 members have voted

  1. 1. Due to local laws, I have two choices of mag tube/stock combinations. Go with capacity or go with a PG stock? Which is more important?

    • Benelli Field stock with full length 7 round magazine tube.
      10
    • Benelli Pistol Grip stock with OEM 5 rd tube and limiter.
      0

What State? What is the law?

Over 5 round capacity in a semi auto shotgun the PG stock is a no go. 

I would have to use a non pistol grip stock (field stock) to increase capacity in a semi auto shotty..

I’d probably go with the Field Stock given that Sophie’s Choice. 

Yeah, it sucks.  I would have probably moved out of state and had a new job by now if it wasn't for the Corona bug killing the economy.

I say if its not the collapsible stock, then I'd go with the field stock, I havent used either though lol. The M4 look isn't complete without at least a mag extension or full length tube IMO.

The only way I could pull off a collapsible is if I bought one and pinned it.  Then again I'd still be limited to a 5 round tube (pistol grip).

Could depend how tall you are. I've heard the PG full stock is long, idk about the field stock. (To correct my last post those are the two I've never used.) I do like my C-stock but I dont think its worth sacrificing a full length tube for it, especially if it has to be pinned.

Milspec -

I've got to ask (after re-reading this thread several times looking for the answer), what state do you live in?  If it's Cali, I'm not aware of any limitations on capacity beyond the limit of 10 rounds in the tube.  I'm not including the 922r compliance issues here.  For a shotgun, you can't have BOTH a pistol grip AND a collapsible stock.  Since Benelli collapsible stocks come with a pistol grip, it satisfies BOTH of the evil features in Cali. You can have either the pistol grip or field stock versions with increased capacity if you maintain 922r.

I've read some posts recently that seemed to confuse or include the requirements/limitations for ("assault") rifles with shotguns in the Cali's Assault Weapons Ban (AWB).  They are different.

Of course, if your not from cali..., never mind... .

Having said all that, I think I bought my field stock from you!  I prefer it because it allows me to "load 2" easier.  As a right hander, you keep the right hand in a firing position grip but dismount the stock from the shoulder and rotate the gun to the right by rotating your right wrist while placing the butt stock between your side (rib cage) and right forearm.  This exposes the loading port for a left handed load-2.  Your right hand never leaves a firing grip.

No not Cali.  CT.

UGH> That state's legislators must have gone to the same school of stooges and imbeciles as Cali's bunch. Field stock, definitely, even tho I tried one and really liked the look of it on the gun, it was not ergonomically suited to me. The solid PG stock fits me like a glove.

just my opinion .I have enough black rifles with c-stocks. my 870 has a field stock. my m4 has a pistol stock. I have come to perfer the pistol stock on the m4. It helps  me control the recoil since all i shoot is slugs.. I have more control of the weapon with a hand on the pistol grip. rotating the weapon as needed. it just feels better to me.

I agree, the field stock ergos are ok for me personally.  I feel that the PG is more solid, controllable and stable.  Although if it was an inch shorter it would be better.

It's tough to give up capacity just to have the PG.  I was leaning in this direction but I think you all are making me come to my senses.

I agree with how it feels and your point about having more control.

also. people say you can't hunt with a smooth bore shotgun, due to not accurate. I live in the woods in northern wisconsin. have hunted with my 30-30 and wouldn't really want to take a shot past 100 yards with the 30-30  no scope on gun. point being,, this M4 with a 1 moa trijicon seems pretty dam accurate I wouldn't hesitate to try taking a deer up to a hundred yards with it. they say a 30-30 is just a brush gun. millions of deer have been taken with them. i'm not seeing a lot of difference  in the  groups I shoot with my m4 verse my 30-30. 80-100 yards. both guns are on a 6 inch shoot n see target at 100 yards. the 30-30 might be a bit tighter group at that distance but not by much.

Milspec, I have a Mesa Ubino PG fixed stock on my 1014. Length of pull is perfect and it has a cheek riser I dialed in for my optic. Recently switched to the limbsaver pad.The shape of the Urbino PG is different than the stock grip. No complaints.

I've tried the Urbino, the length and feel are nice.  For me, I didn't particularly care for the the way it attaches to the recoil tube.  I'm also not a huge fan of that plastic spacer it uses between the receiver and stock. 

Just one man's experience.  I know a lot more people like them than dislike them.

I'm in the exact same situation. MA here, not CT, but we have the same restrictions. For semi-auto, MA residents we aren't permitted "assault weapons", which (for semiautomatic shotguns) by MA law is defined as:

A semiautomatic shotgun that has at least 2 of--"
(i) a folding or telescoping stock;
(ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;
(iii) a fixed magazine capacity in excess of 5 rounds; and
(iv) an ability to accept a detachable magazine.'“

I chose option iii.

Now I need to procure a fixed, pistol-grip-less "field" stock.

I don't want to hijack the thread, so I created a new thread searching for one. Just wanted to add to the conversation here about another states laws.
