I just picked up a glock today and saw a Benelli M4 at the gun store. It had the 8 shot tube, pistol grip, and the stock you could collapse about 3-4 inches and turn it right or left. I asked the owner if this was for LEO only and he said no, anyone could buy this. I thought this had to many evil features for us civies to buy?

Not legal. It's a LEO gun.

Check again, the non LE guns have an extension that looks like a mag tube, and the stock will pivot, but not collapse.

But then again I have seen gunshop pukes sell LE Guns and Hi-Caps to Non LE people.

Taking your description at face value. If it has an 8 shot tube and does not have the fake extention then it is illegal because of the pistol grip. The gunshop may have put a plus two extention on it thus taking a perfectly legal civilian gun and making it illegal. Which really would piss me off considering I've bought the standard buttstock so I could have the plus 2 extention, but the shop I deal with is still out of stock on the extention.

As for the stock, the civie version will "collapse" about two inches as I measured it. Once it is collapsed it will not lock in the verticle position. In actuallity it is supposed to be left in the extended position where it will lock into place. It only collapses to allow the butstock to be taken off.

Not sure if the extension was fake or not. I just assumed it was real, I didn't relaize they made a fake strap on. I thought it just came out of the box because it was sitting buy it and it was not in the store the last time I ordered my Glock. As far as the stock, it would compact a few inches and twist right and left. I can't be sure if it would stay in the vertical position, and I didn't think it would fully collapse. I don't think this store would knowingly sell restricted items because they had an LEO beta C mag for $259 that had the words LEO only in gigantic capital letters on the oustside. Tango-down, it was in a shop in southern IL, but I know a guy in carpentersville -RGUNS (www.rguns.net I think) sells the M4s also, so maybe he could get you what you are looking for there.

What he said. Aside from being fairly anti-gun (against private sales) the guy seems to be an ass clown. Use the search button.

the things i heard were from two guys here in town. they probably went to him since he's one of the only gun dealers in 50 miles.

i'm running searches now, but i'll take your word(s) for it.
