    Turkish M4 clones

    Does anybody have any experience wuth the various Benelli M4 clones from turkey?

    A friend has one. He reports needing higher dram loads for function, at least at his first outing (he brought a mix of bird, buck, and slugs). Internally, it appears largely identical to a Benelli. It is mostly compatible with M4 furniture, though he had to modify the gun to make a Mesa Urbino fit (the tube in the stock for the action spring was too long). He has not tried an extension. For the cost, he is thus far happy with it.

    Not an M4, but I have a Berika-marked M2-type straight stock that I picked up a few months ago. Cylinder bore @ 18.5 inches, front blade, no rear sight. These are shotguns that numerous retailers offer as a private label. They seemed to get decent reviews when sold as TriStar and other names.

    Only 100 mixed shells downrange, but runs well to date. Soft shooter recoil-wise but able to mix and match Foster slugs with low brass target loads in the same tube with no bobbles. The internals looked smooth, well machined and otherwise adequate when I purchased it. I have added a Nordic Components +2 tube using a Benelli Nova pattern nut. That extension runs fine too.

    I have no illusions that it is a Benelli nor Beretta, but my timing was bad on delaying an auto shotgun purchase in Fall 2019. Finding shotgun shells is a bit of challenge these days. I paid a premium for a few dozen OO buck, but the barrel does not like Federal FliteControl. The OO Flite Control opens up about six-eight inches at 25yds versus five inches or so out of my 870s.

    I would not consider its 25 yard Flite Control performance a problem. Very much variation exists from one shotgun barrel to the next. Between brands variation is even greater.
