About 6-7 months ago my truck started locking and unlocking the doors on the way into work. SOme research suggested a bad battery in the keyfob. I swapped the battery and it was fixed....for a while. A couple days ago I went to an HOA meeting and got out and hit the lock button and it unlocked. The next few times I hit lock it did the same thing. Then it finally locked. I assumed it was ok. The next morning on my way to work it was constantly unlocking the doors. I removed the battery when I got to the parking lot and locked the truck. When I removed the battery, I touched it to the contacts a few times and it unlocked the truck each time. So I tried a new battery when I got home and it was still unlocking the truck without any keys being pressed. It appears that I need a keyfob. I'm finding what look like crappy ones on amazon and the online dealers seem to want over $200. I need to check with my local dealer and see what they charge.

Also, if I find one, is there a way to program them without paying the dealer to do so?

I have a new 7 shot one piece magazine tube for a Benelli M4 (it was opened, but never installed in the receiver or screwed to anything). This replaces the 5 shot tube and 2 shot "dummy spacer" that comes from Benelli. I purchased it and then decided to use an OEM Benelli tube on my M4. This converts it to 7+1 from 5+1.

To legally use this, you need to change out some additional parts due to 922r laws. More info can be found here:

In my case, I changed the forend, hammer, disconnector, trigger, and follower. That keeps me extra legal by going above and beyond the ATF requirements.

I paid $89 plus freight. Asking $89 shipped OBO.

I've been trying to get to the UMI event for about 3 years now. The first year there wasn't an autocross and I didn't make it. The next ones didn't go much better. Last year we were closing on a new house and packing during the event. This year I'm registered, my fees are paid and the hotel is booked. I haven't run in a long time and the car is likely the heaviest and lowest HP vehicle on the list....but this seems like too much fun to miss. And, the UMI guys are the best group of guys you'll ever meet and it's always great to hang out with them.

Who's going?

I have a Springfield XDm competition 5.25" pistol in 9mm with lots of upgrades that I have decided to sell. This pistol has the full gunsmith fitted (it's the step above the other one that uses a sear that's custom fit to improve the action even more) trigger kit by Powder River (done by a local gunsmith), the Powder River titanium firing pin safety (the lighter safety allows a lighter spring to lower trigger pull a few more ounces), the Powder River titanium cocking indicator (also lighter springs allow a lighter trigger pull), and the cocking indicator has had the plastic sleeve it rides in replaced by a metal upgraded piece, and a Powder River billet ejector, a stainless guide rod, a "Talon Grip" (the more aggressive grip tape style) and I forget what else. It has the factory case and I'll include three 19 round magazines for it. These are amazing pistols and I built this for "Steel Challenge" competition and some Multigun matches. It's extremely accurate and has been perfectly reliable. I love these pistols, I just don't shoot them very often anymore (I have been to the range 3 times this year instead of my typical 1-2 times a week) so I thought I'd see if there's any interest here.

Pics on request. Verify that this item complies with all local laws. Must be transferred through a dealer. If you're unsure, please check with a local dealer to verify this item is legal in your area. I know the 19 round mags make this illegal in CO, NJ and a few others. I am not able to do the CA DOJ paperwork sine I'm not a dealer.

$900 plus freight

I have a Springfield XDm competition 5.25" pistol in 45 ACP with lots of upgrades that I have decided to sell. This pistol has the full trigger kit by Powder River (done by a local gunsmith), a Powder River billet ejector, a stainless guide rod, a "Talon Grip" (the more aggressive grip tape style) and I forget what else. It has the factory case and I have eight 13 round magazines for it (included). These are amazing pistols and I built this for "Steel Challenge" competition but only took it to a few matches. It's insanely accurate and has been known to make new shooters look good....really good. Many of my new shooters (first time ever shooting a pistol) have put together 1 hole groups with this pistol after a few hours of training (at 21'). I love these pistols, I just don't shoot them very often anymore (I have been to the range 3 times this year instead of my typical 1-2 times a week) so I thought I'd see if there's any interest here.
