Why Upgrade to A Benelli M4 Bolt Release Tab?

The stock OEM bolt release button is very small, and hard to place during high stress, or fast operation.  The Benelli M4 Bolt Release Tab provides surface area to place 3 fingers on the release.  It is naturally easy to find with your fingers, to release the bolt as quickly as possible.  Other bolt release devices such as a “Bolt Release Pad”, usually require gunsmiths to drill and tap the button to install the device.  This costs additional money and time.  In addition, should this type of device fail from catching on a hard surface.  This can also damage the internal bolt release functionality of the Benelli M4.

If the Bolt Release Tab catches and breaks on a hard surface in the same situation, the small OEM bolt release button, and function, remain intact.  For this reason, the bolt release tab can be a better product which can ensure no damage to your firearm in the event of a damaged failure.

  1. Jason L. (verified owner)

    I have 2 Benelli M4 variants(M1014 and H2O ),and they look great on both. The functionality is the only thing that surpasses the ease of install, and overall mechanical simplicity (a beautiful thing in these tech heavy times). I highly recommend if you are looking for a really functional option that won’t break the bank.

  2. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Such a simple – and elegant – fix for the tiny stock Benelli bolt release button! I love it!

  3. Anonymous (verified owner)

    The simplicity is stunning. Functions exactly as expected. Great purchase.

  4. John (verified owner)

    10/10 recommend! This makes releasing the bolt as easy as it should have been from factory. on my M4 the bolt release was very stuff to push and was not always something that could be done from any grip position, with the RX Arms bolt release no matter my grip its easy to drop the bolt and get to shooting.

  5. David J. (verified owner)

    The product? Fabulous. Shipping from Canada? Took forever. This product does not accommodate most after market rails unless you get some gunsmithing.

    • Robb Hutzal (store manager)

      Hey David, shipping times are usually 1 week to northern states and 2 weeks to the south. Longer ship times can occur but are not the norm. Thanks!

  7. Nolan (verified owner)

    Quality product. Been very happy with all the products I’ve received from RX Arms. Loyal customer.

  8. Randall (verified owner)

    Awesome upgrade to my Turkish clone

  9. Adam P (verified owner)

    I was finally able to purchase a M4. Being expensive and one of my dream guns. I did a lot of research and was very careful as to what I added / changed on the gun.
    This tab was a no brainer. Easy to install and you don’t have to mess with the internals of the weapon. This tab is also larger and easier to locate by feel than most aftermarket buttons. The only thing I would possibly change would be to maybe add a little stippling on the end of the tab.

  10. Michael R. (verified owner)

    This bolt release works beautifully, very easy to find when the firearm is shouldered with or without gloves. The installation is extremely easy. For the price you cannot go wrong.

  11. Patrick K. (verified owner)

    Very ingenious device, the bolt release works great and was easy to install. The items shipped quickly and even with having to go through customs the items came quickly.

  12. Michael G. (verified owner)

    Good quality, fit my Canuck Operator perfectly. Makes the bolt release much easier to push and very easy to find for way quicker consistent reload speeds. Wish it was a little less expensive for such a small piece, but is a must have for me and therefore is still well worth it.

  13. Jonny Cannon (verified owner)

    I have the same advice as everyone else – there’s a “sweet spot” for the location of the tab, and then everything installs with one quick click. Looks great and is unobtrusive. Works fantastic, and no gunsmithing or bolt release disassembly required.

  31. Alexander Wood (verified owner)

    Very simple and easy design. I have had it fall off when doing training rounds but found that there is a sweet spot to seat it properly and have yet to have issues since. It fits right and nicely on my Benelli. Recently obtained the Turkish replica M4 which doesn’t allow enough room to apply this attachment.

    • Robb Hutzal (store manager)

      Thanks for the review! The design doesn’t allow it to pop out if properly installed, so seating the clip properly on the retaining band is important for proper function.

    Great buy! Easy to install. No need for a gunsmith. It makes my Benelli more pleasureable to shoot with.

  55. Tim Case (verified owner)

    Great quality works perfect but remember that it will cause a very small gap that bothers me between the hand guard and mount. It will not affect any type of function of the weapon but I’m just picky so no go for me. Tim USMC 73-77

    Goes well with OEM foregrip, or the Mesa Tactical, may not like pic rail type foregrips (B&T etc.) much larger than the original. Good finish, and feels good to function.

    Simple installation for a great upgrade. I have long fingers and I’d constantly “overshoot” the button. Now one of my fingers always lands on the tab and I’m good to go. Machining is great: no sharp edges, and the fit was perfect.

      Thanks for the review. There have been no videos where my tab has broken. I use extremely hard 45 rockwell 1075 steel. The tabs you see that are breaking have a different design than mine, and are using 4140 steel at around 30 rockwell.

    Quality piece, I’ve tried both this and S&J tabs, I prefer this one as it’s a bit stiffer and doesn’t flex quite as much. I did copy what S&J did with the grip tape strip and it’s good to go. For the cost of this why would anyone suffer from the tiny button on the stock M4, you have zero to lose by installing this, it takes 2 mins to install and will dramatically improve your experience.

    Installing the bolt release tab was quick and simple. There will be no more fumbling for the tiny little factory bolt repair button during tactical reload drills and possibly injuring your finger…which happened to me, meh. I’m retired Federal LE and was issued the tactical Remington 870 pump shotgun for over 20 years, so wasn’t used to practicing with a semi-automatic. I’m up to speed now with the Benelli M4, especially now that I have the RX bolt release tab making tactical quick loads simpler. For the brothers and sisters of USA, be patient with the delayed delivery. Robb of RX Arms is trying to improve the delivery method but, expect it to be in customs time-out for awhile. Not Robb’s fault, you can blame our Gov and USPS snail mail service for the added time. Overall, I highly recommend if you want to give your M4 a K.I.S.S. device to enhance its performance.

    A monkey could install this thing, and it fits securely and really aids in finding the bolt release quickly and the leverage you get to release the bolt is a must.

    Very ingenious addition to combat the small bolt release design of stock M4. It is made very well and I appreciate the simplicity to the install. May require a little filing of hand guard material for perfect fit though.

    • Robb Hutzal (store manager)

      Hey Justin, handguard material removal is not needed for the tab to function properly, and barrel to seat fully. However if you don’t like the small gap that is created one can definitely remove material there for asthetic purposes.

    Great little addition to the best tactical semi auto shotgun on the market, takes the bs out of finding the small stock bolt release!

    I just purchased the bolt release tab, and what a difference it has made. I had the hardest time not only finding the release button but pressing it as well. This pad is so easy to find and the installation took 1 minute. Additionally, I had a problem with my shipment since I ordered the release pad and the charging handle. The charging handle was stolen out of the package and Robb with RX Arms replaced the missing item the next day. QUALITY PRODUCTS AND QUALITY COMPANY. Strongly recommend it!

    I am a few months overdue to write this review for this superlative product.

    Sometimes a simple solution is the best, and this bolt release tab by Rx is the epitome of that.

    Initially, I was skeptical of the design. However, having installed it and used it for 3 months, it has absolutely grown on me. I am now of the opinion that this is a best-in-breed design.

    What I like about this product:

    1. Creates a broad but non-intrusive, engagement surface that allows for easy intentional (but not accidental) activation of the bolt release from many different hand positions, and with either my strong-side or weak-side hand. This has dramatically increased my speed for operating my Benelli M4 SBS, and by feel only.

    I can release the bolt with finger pressure along the entire, horizontal length of the Rx tab. Ergonomically and “tactically”, this is very useful.

    Because of the extremely thin profile (depth) of the Rx tab, there is no more likelihood of accidentally activating the bolt release than with the standard, un-enhanced, bolt release.

    2. All the other market designs that put a head that bolts / threads into the bolt-release button are essentially huge levers for snagging and then breaking off the bolt-release button. This, especially because the bolt-release button actually protrudes at an angle, creating a huge gap (on the side toward the user) between the receiver and any bolted-on head.

    The Rx tab is very high quality spring steel that can deform substantially and yet return to exact, original spec. So, if you happen to get a strap caught into the gap between the tab and receiver, you’ll be able to dislodge it without damaging the tab or the bolt-release button.

    On my Benelli M4, I have a speed-loader guide mounted at the rear of the receiver opening, around the takedown cross-bolt / shaft. This guide creates a slight relief behind my Rx tab that prevents anything from getting snagged underneath it. This just happens to be a fortuitous coincidence.

    3. The installation and removal of the Rx tab is ridiculously simple, yet effective. You just tuck the lip into the rear ferrule for retaining the stock forearm (handguard halves) and then push in the forearm furniture to secure the tab in place via a friction fit. The tab does not tear up your handguard ferrule or handguards.

    It does not take the fit of your forearm handguard out of spec. So, if you hear the gas pistons knocking around when you tilt your Benelli M4 — those noises were always there, you just never noticed until now. Fact: the factory Argo gas system requires some free movement on the pistons.

    Removal of the tab is as simple as pulling off your handguard. Do note that the spring steel on the tab will cause it to rebound and fly out when the pressure from the handguard is removed, and this could ding your receiver. Easy remedies are to be less abrupt when removing your handguard, or to remove your handguard with the tab and [right-side] receiver facing down a foot away from a soft or padded surface.

    4. Being retained on the handguard ferrule, you have ample room to adjust the vertical placement of your Rx bolt-release tab alongside your receiver. I prefer a lower placement just a couple millimeters above the bottom bevel of the receiver. This ensures that my hand does not come into contact with the bolt-handle as I release the bolt.

    5. The spring steel on the Rx tab has extremely high tensile strength. It clearly has been heat treated. There is no way any of these tabs are going to fatigue even with multiple lifetimes and generations of heavy use.

    I am really impressed with how Rx was able to form the precise bends in the tab to form the clip-on portion in such high-tensile strength steel. “Somebody” at Rx has some serious skills in metal fabrication.

    6. The finish appears to be some form of nitriding with a top coat of Cerakote. The Cerakote is applied very uniformly with a satin matte finish that makes the part visually “disappear” into the black anodized receiver. It is also very durable, and my Rx bolt-release tab has shown no stress flaking or chipping on the finish and has not developed any shiny spots on the flats or pressure wear along the edges in 3 months of extensive use.

    On the underside, of the tab, I applied a thin disk that I stamped out of UHMWPE (polymer) with an adhesive backing. I positioned this disk between the tab and the head of the bolt-release button. This arrangement removes practically any friction and galling between the hardened steels of the tab and the bolt-release button. It makes the bolt release absolutely “delicious” — perfectly controlled, predictable and crisp, like snapping tiny glass rods.

    In conclusion, this Rx bolt-release tab is, in my opinion, the best, most versatile, bolt-release system for the Benelli M4 — and via an ingeniously simple design, almost ridiculously low cost, and drop-in configuration not requiring dedicated gunsmithing.

    I am aware that another maker invented the bolt-release tab concept, with a design that precedes the Rx one. However, in my opinion, its overall quality is no match for the release tabs by Rx.

    I highly recommend the Rx bolt-release tab for the Benelli M4 shotguns, and prefer it over the other much more expensive solutions I have tried.

      Thanks for the in depth review S.T. Yes, I am that “someone” who makes these tabs by hand. Hand made fabrication is required due to the extreme hard temper of the steel.

    I think it’s a pretty good product. It’s a simple solution to the benelli m4s small bolt release.

    It’s cheap and easy to install.

    I’m not sure I’ll keep it long term, after spending $2,000 on a shotgun I kind of want a cleaner solution that is permanently attached to the gun.

    But this product does exactly what it claims to, at a fair price, and can be added to the gun in seconds.

    This thing is perfect. Minimalistic design. Easy to install. Does exactly what it’s intended to do and makes sending the bolt home so so much easier.

    Better option then the others on the market which require removing the stock bolt release and or tapping it for a screw.

    Incredible. Zero struggle when releasing the bolt. No need to apply a huge amount of pressure on a tiny dot just to release the bolt. Probably reduces the strength needed by 90%. It’s an absolute joy to operate. Simple installation too, just hook it behind the forend and tighten. Get this plus the titanium charging handle. You won’t regret it!

    Purchased this item a year + ago as soon as they came back in stock after adding my name to the waitlist. The simplicity of it is where the genius is, instead of having to remove springs and parts, just a quick drop in that makes releasing the bolt so much easier on a variety of orientations.

    Benelli M4 Bolt Release Tab.
    It’s funny how little things can make such a big difference. For me, the Benelli button was so painful to operate I had to change my grip to get it.
    I tried a bigger button with a terraced featcher. It was no easier to operate and still hurt my fingers.
    This tab looks so – – – wrong. BUT, the price was right so I bought one.
    It came promptly but looking at the directions I did not how it could work.
    But work it did! Perfectly and with minimum pressure.
    One thing: mount it low. If it’s too high the bolt operating handle will hit you fingers.
    Buy it. You’ll like it.

  246. Salt

    Received it quick!!! Excellent fit and function. Just what i was looking for without all the other jazz from similar companies. Highly recommended.

    I love this bolt release alot especially when I am wearing gloves. You can hit it in the dark. Unlike just having that little button…
    Buy this and you will be happy. Easy installation as well.

    I went with this tab instead of a traditional style of oversized release. It looks 10x better IMO, and works/looks better than S&J’s tab, which I also had, which scratched the paint on my receiver.

  250. Steve

    Way better then the original, exactly what I was after.

  251. Henry Eng

    Outstanding product. Makes it much easier to release bolt.

    Excellent product. Simple to install and makes releasing the bolt much easier and more convenient. I’m using it on a Canuck Operator, a Turkish M4 clone, and it fits and works perfectly.

  254. Joel

    Great product. Like it alot better then the factory one and other oversized bolt release. Shipped fast.

  255. John

    makes hitting bolt release that much easier without committing to replace the factory bolt release, if this thing ever fails, say at the end of the spring steel’s life span(which will outlive the gun and you probably), you can just take the handguard off and get rid of it
    beware because the steel used is much much harder than the aluminum receiver of the m4, when taking the handguard off it will drop free, so if you are not careful it will scratch up your finish with the might of god himself

  256. Pat B.

    Work amazing, a must have. Love the simple design and rounded corners.

  257. C

    If you find the OEM bolt release too small for your liking this is the best solution. Wide surface area and well made. It requires no modification to the gun unlike other “oversized release” buttons which require you to either replace some internals or drill and tap the existing button. An additional benefit is that is that should the release become snagged on something it will not damage the gun because it only rests over the mechanism instead of being bolted on. It may seem a bit pricy for what it is but it’s significantly cheaper (and better) than other market offerings.

  258. Brian

    Arrived quickly. Easy to install and works perfectly. Looks good too.

  259. Michael Thuot

    Excellent product…..the bolt release tab is much better than the factory button.
