no surprise there...
After reading other threads, I'm considering switching to the standard M4. I do like the solid black, the standard is more available, less expensive, and there appears to be coating quality issues on the H2O. The black is a non corrosive coating. I don't plan on going swimming in the ocean with it.
I have a black M4 already and have a M4 H2O on order. I'm hoping the finish will be fine. If not, off it goes.

Nothing made up. Read the posts with pictures. I have an H2O on order and paid for. Don't need excuses.
I don't see an issue with the finish. If you want to debate Benelli's machining and finishing of parts, by all means, have at it. But I don't see anything definitive in that thread about the quality or lack thereof of Robar's NP3 coating process.
My only issue is that I have ordered an M4 H2O and I haven't received it yet.
Yeah but actually it is just one post, I haven't seen another example of the NP3 finish being described as messed up or spotty. My guess is that if the finish is screwed up, it is covered under the warantee of the gun and will be redone at Benelli's expense. What you get with the H2O far exceeds the cost of the weapon compared with the standard stock M4. You get all of the benefits of the M4 with the tactical stock and the factory full sized tube.
You know all of this already, but the NP3 really is just icing on the cake. ****, if the coating is jacked up, the folks who do the NP3 coating now have a new coat that provides all the same protection of the matte grey finish but in black...you could have yourself a factory produced and specially coated unique H2O...but thems is just dreams.
