    Very cool anon. Did you make it from scratch or modify a stock and foregrip for a different gun to fit? If so, what was the donor stock.
    I'd say it just needs a heat shield now.

      The buttstock I bought from Italy, originally from a Raffaello. All shotguns of the "Super 90" series have the same basic buttstock pattern.

      The stock hole had to be slightly widened to accept the thicker M4 receiver extension. I bought original stock retaining nut and plate. The plate had to be trimmed down a bit, because the stock is for the old pattern plate, which is out of production.

      The handguard is by Cotton Branch Custom. Came terribly blonde, but I got the buttstock later and didn't know it would be dark red.

            By factory stock you mean the wood one offered by marstar? That's about half an inch shorter than the telescoping stock at mac extension so that sounds close to perfect for me.

      Nevermind, I didn't realze you were OP. Nice fricking wood. Do you know how it was prepped and finished or did it come pre-finished? Does it shimmer (does it have chatoyancy)?

        the buttstock is from a Raffaello, the fancy version of the Super 90 series. it appears to be stained and oiled and all I did to it was rub in some fresh oil. yes, it does shimmer.

        to match the color I had a cabinet maker stain the handguard to match the hue and then I placed it a plastic container with ammonia vapor in half hour increments until the brightness was the same. which is really hard to judge, because light source and viewing angle affect appearance a lot. showed it a bunch of people at different lightings before I satisfied with the result. wife = best critic of one's work.

    Great looking shotgun anon. Sorry to ask for a spoonfeed on such a stupid question but is the M4 basically the same as the Super Black Eagle? I grew up in Arkansas duck country and that's been my only exposure to Benelli. As an aside, does anyone remember the S.B. Eagles that you could drop a shell on top of the loading gate and then manually chamber the final shell? This gave you two in the tube, one on the loading gate, and one in the chamber. This was hot shit in Stuttgart, AR circa 2000.

    • 3 weeks ago

      No clue but you can do the same on the M4! It's called "ghost loading"; was just reminded of such a thing existing while listening to a podcast while coming back from hunting. I used to hear about it a lot here but I guess shotguns aren't exactly the cool new hot shit right now and ghost loading is kind of old too.

      the Super Black Eagle is very similar to an M1 or M2. they're all recoil operated with what Benelli calls the inertia system. the M3 added a pump action on top of the inertia system and the M4 is driven by two gas pistons underneath the handguard.

    Dude, that's not an M4 - that's an M4. Before you start a thread about an M4, maybe learn what an M4 is so you don't go and post a pic of an M4 and call it an M4. An M4 and an M4 are completely different. Nice pic of an M4, though - too bad you started an M4 thread instead.

    ...unless I'm the confused one, and you actually started an M4 thread for an M4, instead of an M4 thread for an M4. If this is an M4 thread and not an M4 thread, then my apologies.
