jaegerbataillon511 Posted February 7, 2008 Share Posted February 7, 2008 Hello, I am a european user of a Benelli M4 shotgun and yesterday I wanted to remove the fixed pistolgrip stock for inspection and cleaning. The M4 manual shows no instruction for removing fixed hunting stocks. Therefore I first removed the rubber buttcap and next I tryed to unscrew the 053J stock retaining nut, but it did not come off easily, because it was glued on the 280J stock retaining pin. I noticed that the 280J stock retaining pin is treaded and it rotated with the 053J stock retaining nut when I tryed to unscrew the nut off. I know now that I had to unscrew all the stock from the receiver like the pistolgrip, but yesterday I did not. So to my question: Have I damaged, rotated or somehow altered the 049J recoil spring tube which is attached at the rear receiver by unscrewing the stock retaining nut which also rotated the stock retaining pin that is screwed in the recoil spring tube? The treads on the stock retaining pin are inside the recoil spring tube, and when I tryed to unscrew, would it basically unscrew itself out of the recoil spring tube, or have I damaged anything? Besides, the gluing between the stock retaining nut and pin loosened very quickly after about one quarter revolution with a "tikk" sound insinde the stock.
