Midwest Industries is introducing a new lineup of accessories created for the recoil-operated, 12-gauge, semi-automatic shotgun—the Italian designed Benelli M4 Tactical.

Among the new accessories available to deck out your Benelli M4 are a new M-Lok handguard, an extended charging handle, and a mount for the Aimpoint T2 or similar electronic red-dot sight. “Upgrading your Benelli M4 is now easier than ever,” said Troy Storch, owner of Midwest Industries. “The affordable new M-Lok Handguard is exactly what the M4 and clones need for a lightweight solution.” It measures approximately 12 inches in length and a five-slot, polymer, M-Lok-compatible section of Picatinny rail is included in the packaging. This handguard makes it a breeze to attach accessories such as tactical lights or handstops to this shotgun.

The Midwest Industries Benelli M4 Aimpoint mount has a footprint that is not only compatible with the T2, but with the H2, T1 and H1 as well. The mount is set up for a one-third lower co-witness to also allow the use of the shotgun’s iron sights. The Enhanced Charging Handled has a large, knurled surface area allowing for a robust manipulation of the M4’s action.

All Benelli M4 Tactical Accessories series have the following features:

  • Compatibility with Benelli M4 and its clones
  • Constructed from Type 3 Hardcoat-Anodized 6061 Aluminum for a lifetime of service
  • 100-percent Made in the USA with a lifetime warranty

The Benelli M4 Tactical shotgun is a mainstay in the world of tactical shotguns, serving civilians, law enforcement and the military. It currently occupies the throne of Benelli’s Super 90 tactical shotgun dynasty going back to the Benelli M1. Its ARGO recoil-operated gas system affords it a high level of reliability, especially with duty-rated shotgun ammunition

When someone asks a store clerk for 9 mm ammunition, generally the clerk can zero in on the customer’s needs by asking a couple questions: Target or defense? OK then, 124- or 147-grain projectiles? And, away the happy customer goes with a box of cartridges.
