Benelli M2 Tactical?
#1
Was just at my LGS picking up a transfer from another store, when I spied a Benelli M2 tactical with ghost ring sites and an 18.5" barrel in the rack.

Now, I've been wanting a semiauto shotgun for quite some time. First choice was a Benelli M4, but I really have a hard time justifying spending $1800.00 + on a shotgun.

I asked to look at the M2, and it seemed pretty solid, and given the state of current events and the political views towards semiauto anything these days, I pretty much said WTF and brought it home with me at the normal (non-panic) price.

I knew very little about this at the time of purchase, other than the fact that it is recoil operated and not gas operated like the M4.

Anyone here have one or shot one? thoughts and impressions if so?

Looking around online they are around 1200 to 1400 hundred. 1800 seems high but the craziness is going on for now.

1800 is for the M4...I have the M2...I paid 1045 for it.

I have a Stoeger m2000, the company is owned by Benelli and it uses their recoil system. While reading up on it I've found that some people experienced cycling issues when they had it loaded down with add-ons (shell holders, lights, red dots) because it added weight and absorbed too much of the recoil that the gun needs to operate. Some people claimed to have the same issue while firing from the hip.
Personally I've never had an issue, and it's ran everything I've fed it.
My guns have killed less people than Obama's ATF has.

I have a Benelli SBE which should be very similar to your M2. I love it. To test it out, I mixed high and low brass, 2 3/4" and 3". Not a hiccup. They do kick a bit due to the operating system.

Just to make you see it's all relative, $1800 on an M4 would be a bargain now.

holy crapola.. Confused

to think that probably a month ago I was holding an M4 in my hands and was thinking of buying it...

I just had it out back and was shooting some target loads in it without problem...worked well fired both from the hip and the shoulder..

only thing I find cumbersome is the lop...
