Nice shotgun. Being an old school 500/870 guy, what model shotgun is that?

Damn, bet that cost a tooth or two. I'm saving my nickels and dimes to one day buy a used 930.

It did. All of these sticks go boom. This is a nice one though and that's where the extra $$$ went I reckon.

I just went to the range with mine and I continue to love it, shoots anything, has less recoil then most autos and easily adjustable for my 5 ft tall girlfriend to shoot. She also really enjoyed shooting some bird shot through it. i hope you enjoy yours half as much as I enjoy mine.

Great shotgun. I SBS'd mine and put a 14" factory barrel on it. Handy little shotgun now. I've even been able to run short shells through it no problem.

The Jar Heads love them. That should be endorsement enough. When I buy my 930 the M4 will be the one that got away.

Co-witness sight....check (almost anyway). Light and laser....check. I just hope the bore sighting I did for all stays put!

Found a light, laser and a mount I like. Boresighted the laser, maybe it'll hold zero.



May add some OD green to this dark soul.

Seriously man, that mount is not gonna cut it with recoil. There are some killer mounts available for the M4 now, dont sell yourself short.

I have two other mounts but both orient the light on the side. Will try this out first....I did light three Joss sticks to appease the recoil gods.

It's the M4 bug this time. Some of the "cool kids" have this so I had to try it (got into trouble a lot doing this when I was younger!). It's the mesa tactical shell holder....well built but had to put on a a different red dot...vortex venom on a burris winged mount. May go back to the Scalarworks-RMR combo. This is heavy.....for my powerful athritic hands.


Had to get a bandolier.....will most likely have no use for it except this picture.

Very nice I have always wanted one but the expense has put me off. I already have a Benelli M1S90 and Rem 870 Police and 11-87 Police. Have the M4 come down in price at all?

Very slightly or none at all I believe. There are about 3-4 M4's for sale at the AR15.com as of yesterday.
