New (to me) Benelli M2 Tactical and 922r questions

A Benelli M2 has been on my bucket list for quite some time now and today I finally got to cross that one off my list. I was going into one of the LGS here to get another pound of BLC-2 and managed to run across a used model for $800 out the door. It's the pistol grip model with the LPA sights and while it had a slight spot of surface rust on one spot on the barrel (which came right out with come CLP and a brush) and a little ding on the forend, it's in almost perfect condition. I took it apart for cleaning and internally, it was almost pristine. A few wear marks along the bearing surfaces of the bolt hints that it might have been fired a few times but not much more than that. My guess is it might have belonged to a now laid-off wildcatter that had to sell it cheap for money to get back home since there's a bit of that going on up here these days.
Now for the upgrades for it. I already have a Vickers sling on the way for it and I have plans for a DMW 7-round extended magazine. Does that count for one part since I am replacing the Benelli 5-round extension? The follower will be another part I plan on replacing so that is 1 for sure, 2 if the DMW extended tube counts. Anybody know off hand what other US made parts can be swapped out for 922r compliance? I'm thinking of going with a Surefire dedicated light that would be another part but what else is out there that would be another US made part I could go with?

A good deal of info here...... http://freedomfightertactical.com/922r-faq/

If you use a US manufactured follower, magazine tube (not an extension), or a fore end, i.e....hand guards you are good to go with an M2.

Simply stated, you need to replace two parts with US made pieces.
Mag tube, hammer, follower, or hand guards....pick any two

It's pretty clear that the light doesn't add or subtract from the count. There is a specific list of parts that can be either US production or imported. It is from that list that you need to reduce the imported count.

Magazine extensions are a problem because the imported magazine tube is still installed. You need to replace the entire assembly with a US produced tube.

Then just replace the shell follower and foregrip and you should be good to go.

For the Benelli M4, I used the Carrier tube and the FAQ explains a little more about 922(r).

Be VERY careful.

No something like a light attached to the barrel or what not wouldn't help bug I'm talking about Tue Surefire dedicated lights that are built into the hendguard so when you add the light, the for end is also being changed out for a US part as well

For a solid stock M2,.......change the fore end and the follower. Two parts is all you have to replace to be 922 compliant.

Personally I'd skip replacing the forend and replace the buttstock with a shorter Mesa Tactical Urbino. In fact that's what I did on my M2 and on my M4.

I used the Vang Comp SS followers in both guns. On the M4 I used a DMW magazine tube. The M2 is an NFA SBS so I couldn't really stick and extended tube on the thing.

Enjoy your Benelli. They make a helluva good shotgun. Last count I have 7 in various configurations and they all run great. And don't let anyone tell you the M2 won't run light loads. It might be a little stiff for the first 200 shells or so but it will run light target loads just fine...even my SBE II runs the light loads fine.

Until you add an extension, you are fine. IF you add an extension, then yes, you have to add two parts. A Geiselle hammer and Nordic follower used to be the common "conversion."

The DMW adds onto the factory tube, so it does not count.

As long as the tube is actually made in the US...

ETA: Then again, the extended tube is probably an 'evil feature' so I'm not sure it counts. I replaced the forend and the shell follower.

Mine has a TacStar magazine tube extension on it with a Wolf Spring. Ive also replaced the follower with one from GG&G and have a Surefire forearm with light on it.
