Would you trade your M1 Super 90 for an M4 Super 90?

If you could only have one...well...would ya...punk?

Pro's:
Pic rail
More reliable (supposedly) with more weightgaining goodies on board (optics, taclight, sidesaddle)

Cons:
Lose 1 round
No dedicated foreend light (yet?)

I have a M3 S90 and it has never malfunctioned with slugs, buckshot or field loads. I can't imagine the M4 being more reliable than that (not possible) so - NO - no trade here!

With a taclight and sidesaddle?? If Surefire never comes out w/ a taclight for it I probably won't get one.

Same here, the M1S90 is all that I need. Paying 1K+ for another semi-auto that gas operated is not on my list.

fwiw:I'll buy the M3 before the M4.

Nah, my M1S90 works fine with a Surefire as-is. Never a misfeed, even with birdshot and low recoil buck/slugs.

Nope. The M1S90 is the best shotgun in the world.

Negatron. The M1S90 is a near-perfect semi-auto shotgun, the M4S90 has some major flaws.

Having been involved in the testing of the M4 when S.W.A.T. had one in-house for an article, I'd have to say NO.

No. I would just go get an M4 to add to the collection.

I have to agree. I'll keep my M1S90.
Don't see any need for the M4. It's a step in the wrong direction.

I really can't imagine the M4 being better than my M1S90 as I consider the M1 perfect to begin with.
