M4 Capacity?

Recommended Posts

Official capacity as stated in most documentation is 5+1 (2-3/4"). Else, 5+1+1 if carrier loaded.

4+1 Strange:confused:

I have 7+1 or 6+1 capacity, difference only 'cause of cartridge length...

 

That is from the factory without the extension tubes. I have seen your pictures (very nice:)) and you have the extension tubes, so this would not apply to you.

 

I think the original poster is just curious as to what the original capacity is coming from the factory without an extension tube.

A factory 11707 will hold seven total 2 3/4" rounds. Five in the limited cap magazine, one in the chamber and one on the carrier.

Exactly what I said. 5+1. I have never seen Benelli list a round on the carrier. Again, the original poster was curious what the FACTORY listed capacity as.

How do you "ghost load" or place one on the carrier?

 

Is this reliable for home defense purposes? Does it negatively impact the cycling in any way?

Since noone else replied to our question Ill answer. I figured it out while out shooting my M4.

You load the tube to max capacity. Then pull the bolt/carrier back far enough to add another round on top of the ramp, or shell carrier. After adding that round, hold the same round so as to clear the bolt/carrier as you move the B/C forward just slightly. Then add another round directly into the chamber. If you have the factory Five round tube you now have 7 shots at the ready. Five in the tube, One on the shell carrier/ramp and One in the tube. If you have the Seven round tube then you have a total of Nine shots at the ready.

Make sense?

5+1 with 2 3/4 buckshot, and 4+1 with either 3" mags, or 2 3/4 slugs.

 

I fit 5+1 with remington sluggers in my M4, but it was BARELY happenin!

 

When Kip finishes with those tubes...
