M4 and Chicago Laws

Any shotgun with only a pistol grip is illegal. However, shotguns with a pistol grip and stock attached are legal as well as the rest of Cook County. I know because I called CPD three times and proceeded to purchased my Benelli M4 based on the clarification I received after searching for answers. What dealer will you be buying from?

I hope you got that in writing.

Pistol grip only is illegal as this shortens the length of the barrel.

 

A pistol grip does not shorten the length of a shotgun's barrel.

 

If the barrel is 18 inches, it's legal. I would read up on Chicago laws regarding firearms as the Police Officers you talked to may be mistaken.

Ok guys. Once more, after doing research, calling and speaking with a number of Chicago Police Officers who are familiar with Chicago firearm laws said the M4 is legal. I described the M4 by saying that is is a semi-automatic shotgun and that the M4 has a pistol grip with stock and is 18.5" in length. CPD said it was legal. Based on that, I bought my M4 and I will update you after I register it.
