    Default Issues with Benelli M4 charging handle by Freedom Fighter Tactical

    Howdy Guys and Gals,

    I have a Benelli M4 that I purchased used from somebody and it runs flawlessly minus one pretty serious issue. The charging handle the previous owner installed is the FFT Ti charging handle and while it looks nice and is gnurled up nice and grippy, it has an catastrophic tendency to pop out while cycling. I've done a bit of reading and have found that this is not a completely uncommon thing to happen with this brand of charging handle and so I'm looking at replacing it.

    My reason for posting about this is to find out if anyone has had similar issues and if so what did you replace it with (brand/product)/how did you fix it?

    Thanks for the time and I look forward to any and all insight into the matter!

    I don't have a benelli m4. In my experence over the last 25 plus years of messing with guns the more you change factory parts the less reliable it becomes especially with military weapons. I would personally go back to the factory charging handle. Just my 2 cents

    I have an FFT sitting in my box of M4 parts, because of this.

    I went back to the factory charging handle, and have had no issues. I ran a TTI (http://tarantacticalinnovations.com/...arging-handle/) for a while, and it didn't fall out, but I ended up trading it off to a buddy, and still running my factory one. The TTI one was good, and I may actually buy another one at some point, but I'd be lying if I said I had shot my M4 in the last 2 years. I've been interested/focused on other disciplines, and my shotgun shooting has been limited to clays, which the M4 is not as adept at when compared to the O/U.
