Default Benelli M4 mag tube extension

What options and makers are out there Benelli M4 mag tube extensions?

I've found a few online but no real reviews to go from.

Any help is appreciated!

Nordic components generally has a good reputation of making solid reliable mag tubes and they have a couple different options for the M4, but they are more expensive than some other options

I don't have the Benelli M4, but I do have 2 Benelli M2's which Dave of "Dave's Metal Works" is working on and among other things, he's added mag extensions to the M2's which I've absolutely happy with.

I prefer the fit and finish of his mag extensions as opposed to the Nordic extension that came w/my 22" Versa Max, although I don't think you'd go wrong w/Nordic as sboone has mentioned.


If you do a search for the Benellli M4 w/mag ext. you should come up w/pics of the various aftermarket extensions already mentioned, mounted on the gun.



I'm local to Dave so he actually mounted my mag extensions, but you can also order the extensions online.

In person, the mag ext. from Dave look like something that came originally from Benelli.

I installed Freedom Fighter Tactical's titanium full length tube on my M4 several years ago and have been 100% satisfied with it.

( Currently, they're OOS for the titanium tubes, but the steel tubes are in stock )

Excellent products and great customer service!

This is what I just ordered. Ordered and got the confirmation and then shipping and tracking information less than an hour later. On a Saturday. If product is as good as service I should be happy.

Thanks everyone!

Excellent!

Make sure you have a heat gun and a heavy duty strap wrench to break loose the, ( green? ) loctite they used, to get the factory mag tube out of the receiver.

Update (sorry but it has been a crazy year)

The full length tube from Freedom Fighter tactical is almost a perfect clone of the Benelli tube. Bought the wolff spring for the full tube as well.

You will need a snap ring wrench to remove the spring block at the end of the factory tube and to reinstall it on the replacement.

Looks good, functions great.

Love love love my Benelli M4. It don't matter what kind of ammo walmart economy shells up the high brass stuff. Eat 'em up and spit 'em out.

I'm toying with the thought of thinning out my AK shotguns. I will keep my saiga12 and maybe one JTS. The M4 will be the go-to.
