View Full Version : M1014 vs. M4

Can anyone explain the differences between the non-collapsible M4 and the M1014? Especially the overall length difference.

The 1014 has a thick military barrel (thicker than the M4, I believe) and no interchangeable chokes are used or available. One size fits all, including slugs. The M1014 barrel more closely replicates the military gun in use than the M4, except of course civilians are not allowed the collapsible stock. It also is a limited edition run (2500) designated by the laser-etched American Flag on the receiver.
The M4 is basically the same gun in a larger production run but uses interchangeable chokes in a thinner-walled barrel, something unlikely to be used in a tactical military environment.

BTW, by all reports, the lengths are the same for the M4 and M1014.

Too bad, I was hoping it would be the same thing (minus stock dingus) on the civilian version. I don't need choke tubes.
