Hi there, I am a enthusiast to life and freedoms and in my pursuit to defend that; I buy stuff to protect myself. So I was told that Benelli M4 or the Beretta 1301 were to two best for home defense and bragging rights at the range. :) Well as you all know both are hard to find or pricey when you do (and why do some providers inflate their prices ridiculously high - rent is high enough) sorry my rant. So in my pursuit for the best I get a Benelli M4 10014vand a Beretta A300 Patrol. I also learned that both are owned by the same Italian company. Go figure! All in the family.

My M4 is the 1014 and it also has a US Flag to the right of the bolt release - I know that the 1014 is the US Marines version but I have seen a few that didn't have one. And being a 1978 made Marine myself I am not liking the idea of using a oversized button that's going to cover it up in part of in whole. 

So my question is, does anyone know why this flag is there?

It is my understanding that it is just a "special edition" variant. As far as I know, there are no mechanical differences between the ones with and without. I could be mistaken though, but that is my understanding of it. Welcome to the forum!

The M1014 models come with a fixed modified choke and the recoil tube comes with only 1 notch, preventing the c stock to use other positions.
