I got the idea from somewhere that you couldn't put the Vang Comp on a Benelli, that the barrel was too thin. I may be wrong.

I can't speak for Hans Vang, but I can relate the experiences he and I had with M1S90's and the replacement barrels he did for me in the 90's. The factory tube is indeed too thin for his backboring treatment, and it is chrome lined as well, making the process impossible. Hans replaced the barrel tube with a heavy blank at the threaded end, and re-silversoldered the magazine tube support back into position. The patterns were great, but the tubes were sufficiently heavy that they served to dampen recoil. On most guns that's a good thing, but not on a Benelli. It kept the guns from cycling well. As far as I know, there aren't too many of these out there, and by playing around with the recoil spring most were made operable, but It just was not worth all the extra work and expense.

Isn't the M4 a gas-operated gun? I met Hans almost a year ago, and I remember him talking to Lt. Colonel Blish, USMC, about doing some work on their Benelli autos. They couldn't get the things to work, and Hans said he would give them a shot.

I suggest you call Hans and ask him if he can do his thing on a Benelli M4. He is a great guy to deal with.
