How Many Blue M4s are there?

Why, do you believe it's some sort of special edition model ? They were probably all Monday or Friday receivers lol.

Not a special edition at all, the consensus here seems to be bad quality control with unintended circumstances, I along with at least a few others seem to like the happy accident.

The reason I posed the question was that there is a long history of this kind of thing in firearms manufacturing where a mistake in a limited number of guns turned out to be a feature that collectors later sought out, especially because it's only found on a limited number of guns before the problem is corrected.

The color is not the problem at all. I have said I prefer the blue.

THE BLUE MEANS THE ITALIANS F'D UP BIG TIME. 

The company is trying to bury it but it means their QC was all bad and there are other issues. I have an m4 from over I bougt over a decade ago with zero problems besides my add ons, I thinnk I had maybe 8 jams in over 15,000 rounds of every type of ammo imaginable. Out of the box, no bullshit break ins and minimal cleaning.

My new blue POS has the same marrings you can see in another thread on someone else's gun and the sight is slightly crooked and what do you know...? It only runs buck and slugs even after a good lubing. 

For 2 grad I want it to go bang every goddam time from the factory. If I ordered a black ducati and I got a blue ducati. I would be freaking pissed. You would be too, so the assholes on here acting like its nothing are retarded. How many other aspects of your life do you let a mess up this bad just fly? Like you wanted a wife with a full set of teeth but settled on just a few? I'll bet the same dbag bootlickers who think the color isnt a sign of a bigger issue throw huge fits if they order a pouch in multicam and get some other camo. Think about quality control and a company that sends our country trash thats "meh, good enough, the americans wont notice"   have some dignity.

no freelancer, not aimed at you and yes i understand exactly what you are saying and yes, these fuck up guns might be worth big money some day, but not if they dont RUN like an m4 should. I wanted a gun that works as an investment in my safety, not an investment in my financial future.

I just got mine Yesterday with a 20 date code as well. I really hate the blue color on this which has consequently fueled up my OCD, but it is what it is. I plan on shooting this and not a safe queen. :)

I got a call from a Benelli USA rep. According to them:

The blue oopsies are not a special run, they are just something that happens every so often, since their production is way up, we are just seeing more of them in the wild. There should be no correlation between the blues and the ones that are having QC issues. Just as more blues are making it out into the public, more QC issues are naturally getting out there as well. They will swap your bluey for a black one if you wish.

 

I find this to be a reasonable and acceptable response. I have decided to run another 500-1000 rounds through my gun and if it continues to have firing issues or anything I was welcomed to swap it out for a new one. I also found this to be reasonable. The rep was stout and firm about there needding to be no "break in" period. My first m4 had no break in needed and has run like a champ. I will post updates if I continue to have function problems with my bluey.
