Are you a dwarf or were your arms shortenend in a terrible wood chipper accident? How can the stock be too long?

Admittedly I am not an expert in shotguns, or any gun for that matter, but the M-4 is the most natural feeling gun I have ever had the pleasure to fire. I don't think I would want the stock shortened even a little bit.

and there is no front rail if you want a weapons light mounted

You can run one so long as its pinned. The factory stock is too long IMO.

I agree I like the shorter stock thats why I got the Mesa tactical. I would love the collapsable benelli stock but its very $$$$ and I would have to pin it.

Benelli M4 has 13 parts that are on the 922r list. You need to bring it down to 10. The easiest way is to change:

1) Full Length 7rd Titanium Magazine Tube from Kip at Carrier Comp or Dave's Metal Works BEN012 Mag Tube
2) Dave's Metal Works Follower
3) Mesa Tactical Urbino Stock

From my understanding I thought that once you get an extended tube from Carrier Comp or Dave's etc. (U.S. made) you then have to change 3 parts on the 922r list to U.S. parts (extended tube not included). So basically what I'm saying is you would have a total of 4 U.S. parts.

FUBAR

If you replace the whole mag tube that in itself is a qualifying part.

Receiver

Bolt
Bolt carrier

Buttstock (with integral pistol grip)

The stock did feel too long for me, but I'm a rather small framed Oriental 67 inches in height. So it'll vary. ;)

Sadly I sold my M4 before leaving to Fort Knox. Will miss and totally regret.

Yes get those. That was one of the first couple of things that I did when I got my M4. Got a longer mag tube from Daves Metal Works and a side saddle setup.

If you just bought the M4 recently, then you may want to break it in.

Never. Logistically it makes no sense as they have a dedicated line of Vent-rib Shotguns. Then you would have to remove the rear ghost ring and rail, which can lead to people damaging the receiver without the proper tools.

I doubt MGW has the exact dimensions for a Benelli Barrel. Even if they do, it will cost alot more than what you intend to pay for a barrel because they need to machine the gas piston block and the two barrel bands.

To each his own, personally I'm so sick of mud or baby sh** colored guns. Love the all black M4 with the full length tube though. Way cool looking.

An all-black M4 was my dream gun ever since I was 17 years old. Finally picked one up when I was 31 :D LOVE it, it's still my favorite gun I own.

I just picked mine up earlier this month! So far I waiting on the 7 round mag tube from carrier comp and the trigger assembly from Freedom fighter tactical when they are back in stock to make it 922r compliant. After that I'll send pics and join the rest of the crew!

Let us know about the carriercomp waiting list. I ordered one about 2 years ago and it took right around 3 months, which isn't bad (he said upfront it would be a 3 month wait), I'm just curious if it's taking longer or shorter these days. You'll love it when you'll get it, it's well worth any wait. As someone else quipped one time, "it matches the benelli finish better than benelli" :D

Congrats on your purchase, I absolutely LOVE mine!

Oh for sure! On a side note I took the it out shooting using winchester 2 3/4 birdshot ammo and for whatever reason it wouldn't auto feed into the barrel after firing the 1st shot (I had to pull the charging handle back with each round). I had no problem with the remington bird shot ammo or the winchester slug but I did notice length wise the remington shell was a bit taller. Is this happening because the shotgun is not broken in yet?

Yeah the Carrier Comp tube is beautiful. I got one. But the pain was worse than the cost. Those folks are not at all user friendly. Do not expect them to reply to e-mails nor return phone calls. I'm told they are nice folks. That may or may not be the case. I can attest to the fact that they certainly make a very nice product. But they are terrible, terrible businesspeople. They seem to exist to frustrate and annoy people who pay them in full, in advance.

If you want one, my advice is do not even try to interact with them. It is simply a recipe for futility and frustration. Just send them your money and accept that one day, maybe three months, maybe a year from now you'll get a white cardboard tube with one of their beautiful titanium tubes in it in the mail.

Mine too... birdshot sucks, shoot literally anything else for a while and you won't have that issue. After a few hundred buckshot or slug shells you should be able to fire birdshot again. But honestly I never do - I gave all my birdshot away to friends, and I just shoot 00-buck even for practice. If you hunt around online you can find 00-buck for around $80 for 250 shells, not that much more than birdshot.

Anyways, you're not alone, a lot of people have reported needing to fire a few hundred heavy shells before it cycled birdshot very well.

Haha, well said... yes, that's exactly what I did. I never called or emailed or bugged them, I just placed my order and "forgot" about it until it showed up one day. They've never NOT fulfilled anyone's order, so don't worry about that. Also, they will refund the up-front charge without cancelling your order if you make that request, and they'll just run the charge when it ships, although I didn't bother to try that myself. But they have said they'll do that for anyone who asks.

And if you start to feel angry about the wait, go read the Saltworks thread in the semi-auto rifle forum and you'll feel a lot better :D

sorry crappy phone pics.

Still haven't had the chance to use the red dot yet.

I was going to make a joke about how you should just give it to me then, but then I remembered that I have 2 rifles I still haven't fired yet in my safe that cost as much or more than the Benelli.

But yes, I agree with the above, you're missing out, you need to take it shooting. Most shotguns I would say "aren't not fun" to shoot (intentional double-negative), but the M4 is actually just downright enjoyable. Especially with a 7-shell tube. And especially on BLM land where you can rapid-fire and knock down soda cans to your heart's content.

Somewhere, a while back, I posted a video of myself shooting 8 shells of 00-buck at a pile of junk around 50 yards away, in 1.3 seconds. Just imagine what this thing could do if it had a 30 magazine clip :D

I've been planning to put an RMR on my M4 as well, to replace a cheesy tru-glo red dot I have on there now. It's nice to see what that would actually look like, thanks for the photos. Let me know how it works out! If you like it, I might expedite my purchase of an RMR finally :D

I definitely agree with that double negative but just about any shotgun can be fun. For example the first my wife shot a pump shotgun her first set of rounds were target load & she liked it. Then the next set of rounds were 00 buck. Well it was fun for me to watch

Ha! Yep that'll happen...

I used to shoot an 870 all the time before I got my M4, and after a box of slugs or buckshot I would go home with a big yellowish-purple bruise on my shoulder. Anything beyond more than a box stopped being fun, it just hurt. The M4 ARGO action sucks up a ton of the recoil, I can shoot 200 shells of 00 and feel totally fine. Even slugs are no problem. It's a totally different animal from a pump shotgun

Hope to take it out soon. Gotta find time. Will get back to you. Overall sight picture is really nice, I have the red dot on the second lowest settings. All the other settings seemed to bright for me. Tried aiming in a dark room, dark room with surefire light on, normal lit room, bright room. I switched out the front sight for the Meprolight a while back, wasn't too impressed. Meprolight works fine in a dark room, but outdoors I had a hard time seeing the front sight. I took too long to acquire targets.
