Spuhr Mounts Prototype Benelli M4 Forend

Spuhr Mounts will be showing this prototype Benelli M4 forend at SHOT 2016. The company planned to produce the part using an extrusion process to reduce the cost, but the minimum order to justify the cost of tooling is quite large. Instead, Spuhr Mounts is considering a smaller, fully-machined run of the forend to gauge interest in a larger run.

“To produce the machined part, as opposed to using extrusions,” Hakan Spuhr says, “means a smaller run that will be more expensive.”

If you’re not familiar with the round interfaces on the part, they are Spuhr Accessory Interfaces.  They are threaded to accept Spuhr’s line of indexed mounting plates, used to direct mount secondary optics and picatinny rail sections.

Depending on the number of orders, according to Spuhr, the forend may cost $420-$450 and would include some picatinny rails.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world’s premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.
Imagine the Worlds’ Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you’d like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year’s SHOT, there’s a live map right here, though it doesn’t reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc
