Nice...that's one shotgun you will be proud to own. In a crowd of Remingtons, Mossbergs etc... you stand out.

Thanks. I also have a Saiga 12 but it doesn't really fit with the other more conventional designs.

How are you liking your M2? Has it choked on anything yet?

Mine has, but it was Fiocchi low-recoil buckshot- the bolt will mostly cycle but it'll hang up just before it gets to the point where the shell can be ejected. It requires me to crank back a little on the charging handle.

I know it's not the gun's fault though, it's mine for checking out what can be loaded.

I had the extension and used my factory spring. That didn't work out. The spring couldn't push the shell into the elevator. I switched to the spring that came with the shotgun. I only use 00, slug or magnums. I never had an issue with feeding or ejecting but I did notice a few times that it would not return to battery. I figured I had to shot more through it. I'm taking it out again, on Thursday.

My Mossberg 930 SPX has been flawless on the other hand.

It only likes high brass, and if you want to load anything more than 5 rounds in it, you have to chamber a round first, but other than that is shoots fine.

I would take the Benelli M2 with the inertia stock over the M4, it may seem odd but the linear transfer of energy is straight back on the non-pistol grip type of stocks, were the pistol grip stocks transfer the energy in to your wrist. Or so I have been told.

If you are looking for a shotgun in the Benelli class, that has the same action as a Benelli; but much less in price, I would look into the new Stoger semi-auto shotguns. There action is so close to Benelli's that from what I understand Benelli is allowing them to be made with their name added to the Stoger shotgun.

I have now fired the Benelli with pistol grip stock, and fired it side by side with the linear stock. And I can tell you first hand same round out of both, the pistol grip does have a twist in your wrist.


It does not transfer the energy linearly like a regular stock does.


I traded my Benelli M1 for the Benelli M2 with a linear stock. It also has the inertia stock, I cannot tell the difference. 12 gauge bird or 12 buck shot is still 12 gauge buck shot.

It shoots great, but as far as it being easier on the shoulder to shoot. It felt the same to me; maybe someone else can see the difference but I could not. It is a Benelli shotgun, if you know them you know how fast they can shoot ; but being any better that is not something that I can say.

I have a M4 ... best defensive scatter gun I’ve ever owned but it doesn’t like to be fed a cheap diet.
