Does Benelli have an LE/MIL purchase program? If no, what price should one be expected to pay for a used M4 with the collapsing stock? I’ve looked around gunbroker and checked shotgun classifieds but I’m curious about personal experiences here.

I own two of them.

The first one I got a helluva deal on.
Won on gunbroker for $1425

The second one is "H2O" model and I got it for $2000.

Both were purchased new.

Paid $1400 for mine on gb. Never fired but some cosmetic issues from shipping it incorrectly (understatement). All corrected now. By the time I got done setting it up, expect 2k. Look on armslist, GB, gun deals, gunsamerica. At quick glance, best deal I could find. I’d ditch the factory rifle stock, or the factory collapsible for the urbino because on the urbino you can mount a riser, a shell carrier, qd mount for a sling, and it’s a shorter lop for swinging in the house for HD.

Couple of pics of mine setup. A lot done to it but the trigger is completely stock, 7 in the tube. 7+1+1 with (2) reloads of 6 so 21 shells onboard. Heavy but it’s for primary HD. Even has night sights.

DSG Arms has law enforcement pricing for Benelli. I think you'll be looking at $1700 or so for the collapsible with full length magazine. If you email them, they'll send you a price list.

My info is a few months old.

Shop in my area had them for around 1500, this was a few months ago so they may not have anymore at that price. Wouldn't hurt to give them a call and check. The name of the shop is tanners sports center in Jamison, PA

Looks like $1675 for full pistol grip regular stock and regular stock versions and $1900 for collapsing pistol grip stock.

If someone offered you a used one with mag extension and collapsing stock for $1400, would you take it?

Wait til you shoot it. It will stay in your collection. Last gun I would ever sell. Look up battlefield in Vegas thread. It’s hard to break this gun.

I've been wanting the H2O version for a while. I know the older H2O models were finished in NP3 and the new ones are Titanium colored CereKote.

I wonder which finish would hold up best? Is CereKote pretty wear/corrosion resistant?

I may have done even better than expected. I noticed mine had an American Flag engraved on the side. Matching that with this article: https://www.benelliusa.com/new...imited-edition-m1014

I think this was one of the limited edition Benellis. Can anyone confirm? Mine has a flas in the same place as in the linked picture, just below the charging handle.

You did well. I have the regular version and paid close to $1,800 out the door five years ago. It was a different climate then.

I have a 1014 with the flag, have had it for a lot longer than that press release date. You will love it.

Took my M4 to the range today. I really wasnt that impressed overall. The biggest issue was that loading the mag tube is MUCH more difficult than it should be. As in, I had to use a LOT of finger strength to get shells in each time. Sometimes I wasnt even able to do it, and had to stop and try again. Have no idea why, but it was very unsatisfactory. Remember, this isnt a "new" M4, its just new to me. So this isnt a break in issue.

Second, it didnt like to feed light field loads. I fired 40 total rounds. The 10 rifled slugs and 10 rounds of buckshot fed just fine. The 20 rounds of Winchester 8 shot field loads were hit or miss. I would say that 12 fed just fine, 8 werent powerful enough to cycle the action. Which I knew was possible ahead of time.

Nordic components sells magazine tube springs for shotguns.

You could buy a couple and experiment with cutting them down until loading difficulty is reasonable.
