The M4 Benelli looks to be a really great gun and I've been wanting one for some time now. Don't let the two extra rounds or lack thereof ruin the experience of owning such a nice gun. There's a deference in a HD scenario and a gun fight. From my limited understanding of the matter, you're most likely not ever going to need 7 rounds of 00 buckshot to get you out of a jam. If you're really finding a need to pour out volumes of lead, fight your way to your AR with 30 or more rounds, etc. (IMHO).
A Benelli dealer told me I needed to change 3 parts total. The magazine tube + 2 other ones.
The same rep told me the FNH one does not get imported fully assembled and the missing parts ar added in the US, that's why you can buy it with the larger tube capacity. He could not say anything negative about it. So I might get the FNH SLP Tactical.
There is a company in Mexifornia* that makes a kit to get the M4 into compliance as they have all three part need to add the 7 round tube extender? Let me look at my shot show stuff and I'll post the name of the company.

Here is some info a Range Safety Officer put together to help with installing the three components and his notes to me:
Here is the PDF I put together to assist in replacing the Full Length Magazine Tube. Very easy process. Also, when changing out the Hammer, you might want to order the Corning External Grip Rings. These are stronger than the Benelli originals. If you donít order these, then be very careful NOT to over stretch the Grip Ring, for its very easy to damage.
These two additional components should get you in compliance with 922R. :wave:
I'll upload the magazine tube pdf after the break. :blink:
Got all three now! :yup:
Here is a source for U.S. made Benelli M4 parts
Buy them while you can. :wave:
I had a Bulgarian AK once (had original trigger group) ... With a Magpul/US made magazine in it = compliant. Steel Eastern Block Mag in it = non-compliant.
