  1. Yeah, I called Benelli today and they said it only comes with one. It used to come with 3 like 4 years ago.
  2. I was referring to the dealer's advice. I don't know if the M4 suffers from the "Benelli click" like the inertia models. I may have been exaggerating, if you are just hunting or clay shooting, slowly riding the bolt closed and causing the click won't kill ya. If you did this during a home invasion that might be a different story.
  3. Err, I think this advice could kill you! Check this thread: http://www.benelliusa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16907&highlight=click It appears the most reliable way to make a Benelli unreliable is to NOT slam it home! That would suck if rounds would fire by slamming it home, then there would be no real good option for us Benelli owners to chamber rounds!
  4. They're the stock ghost ring sites. From the factory they seemed to sight in at a 6 O'Clock hold at 100 yards with the ammo I was using. I changed the elevation on the sights for a Point of Aim cause I prefer that better. The slugs were 2.75" Winchester X. The silhouettes looked like the same 8 inchers. I was the only one with a shottie shooting at them, everyone else had a rifle. I could only hit it once in an entire mag with my Sig 220ST (.45) while also benching. With the M4 I could probably hit it about 80-90% of the time. I think after 100 yards, the next metal targets are at 200 yards at this range. Think 3" slugs or a different brand would be more consistent? I just noticed that I believe the Federal Tactical slugs only come in low recoil, so I don't know if that will work with a semiauto.
  5. The gas pistons had residue in them for sure after the day at the range, but I wouldn't say gummed up. And I hear that the M4 is pretty clean running compared to other gas semiautos. Don't know if it can run as long as the inertia based Benellis without cleaning though. Would be an interesting test for someone to do.
  6. This place in Florida is the only place I could find it: http://www.shootersjax.com/benellim412guagetacticalshotgun.aspx $1599, yeah, ouch. I called a couple dozen places here in California and no one had it nor knew when they would be getting new ones in.
  7. Took the new M4 to an outdoor range today. I'm pleased to report it cycled a variety of shells without a hiccup. Probably went through about 70 rounds. With Federal Tactical 00 with FLITECONTROL, I could easily hit 8" metal silhouettes offhand at 50 yards and sometimes 75 yards. Seemed like it spread out too much or lost too much oomph at 100 yards, I couldn't hear it hitting at that range and could see the pellets hitting the dirt around it. The Federal 00's are known for having the tightest groupings but they are slightly longer than other 2.75" shells. I can only fit 4 in the magazine tube. I will try some Hornady's as they are shorter and reportedly fit 5 in the tube for 5+1+1. Oh yeah, I also tried some 3" 00 and could noticeably feel the difference in recoil. I bench rested it for 100 yards with some Winchester Super X Hollow Point Rifled Slugs and could hit the metal silhouette almost every time. Not bad for no optics and the first time for me shooting slugs. I'll try it with some Federal Tactical slugs when I get my hands on some. The gun is very easy to break down and clean for a semiauto shottie. Much easier than my Dad's Remington 1100. Overall I'm very pleased even though I spent a fortune for this thing. I figured it being semiauto and having a pistol grip would make it a future target for the Obammunists. It's my new go-to-gun for home defense. Here's some pics:
  8. Could you link exactly where you found on the website that it only comes with one? I can't seem to find it.
  9. Is the M2 easier to disassemble and reassemble compared to the M4? Does it shoot cleaner?
  10. Hmm, I got a choke wrench at least. You should probably call them for a wrench, I think it's good to take it out of the barrel and clean it and the barrel without it sometimes.
  11. According to this link, the Hornady's are shorter. I think I will try some of these. http://www.benelliusa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16155&highlight=hornady
  12. Yeah, I will try that, I called too late on Friday, they were closed already.
  13. I like the looks of the Super Sport more too. I would say just get that if you need a gun for clays/hunting also. Yeah, the barrel is long for self defense, but it's probably unlikely you'll ever use it for that and if you do you'll just make do with a longer barrel. Most tactical/self defense only shotguns just sit in a safe or closet their whole life. Later, when you have more money, you can buy an M2 or M4 for self defense.
  14. Hmm, okay, I've read other threads on the Internet saying it should come with 3. Maybe they changed that recently.
