About $900 dollars poorer, but whatever I had a ton of overtime this month. Needed to treat myself somehow. ;)

Can you get other barrels? Mine has a muzzle break that I'm not sure I like.

I was also told not to use "light" loads because of the inertia recoil system. Can anyone elaborate on this?

10 days is going to feel like an eternity. :D

Light loads may not cycle the action.

Roger that on the Light Loads... On my friends M3 it is not a problem because he can pump rounds, but the M1 will struggle on the cycle. Just use regular power loads and you'll be fine; I only feed my M1 with non-Light loads.

I have the same model, I got it on sale at Turners. I am also looking for a replacement barrel, they all run about 350 bucks, but I've been searching the boards pretty regularly for one. Also got an HK 3-point sling and Surefire foregrip light for it.

Agreed, the M1 and M3 don't seem to cycle anything less than 00 Buck on semi-auto.

My M1 tactical won't cycle light loads if I use the pistol grip, but will if I hold it like a regular shotgun. The action moves very slowly though.

Mine will cycle everything including light target loads. Make sure it's lubed properly and shoot it a lot. Mine seemed a little tight when I first got it, but loosened up nicely. I still holds tight patterns.
