Should I use my 1100 the first time before I make an investment?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
So my friend got back to me on how he built his Benelli M2. He bought the Benelli M2 for $1,200 then sent it to C-rums
for customization costing an additional $600. He had C-rums
perform the following upgrades:
-out of battery bolt loading mod
-ghost load mod, welded lifter
-oversized bolt release
-rear and front sights
-extension tube from nordic components
-throated barrel mod
-oversized bolt handle
He said to buy the gun with those mods cost nearly $3,000 but by buying it and sending it out he was able to get the same gun, maybe better, for about $1,800.
I'm no expert regarding 3 gun, so I offer this as food for thought.
