SubSolar Posted December 2, 2008 Share Posted December 2, 2008 I was looking to buy another semiauto shottie in case they get banned by the Obammunists. This one would be strictly for self defense so I wouldn't really need to use light loads. I am looking at the Benelli M4 or M2 Tactical because I don't have a Benelli yet and have heard great things about them. Here are the advantages I see for each one after researching: M2 Tactical About a pound lighter (6.75 lbs vs 7.75 lbs) Greater capacity (5+1 vs 4+1) Cheaper by at least $400 (some places $600) Comfortech stock option Inertia operated system can stay cleaner and easier to field strip M4 More reliable if you add accessories like lights Gas operated system can shoot lighter loads Marines use it (possibly more rugged?) Less recoil (although I'm not sure if you get the M2 with Comfortech) Looks better It seems like the M4 in black is a hot item and sold out at most places. Also the prices at gunbroker and some shops have gone from about $1550 to over $1800 now. Meanwhile the M2 Tactical can be found everywhere and the one I want is about $1150 (Comfortech stock and non-ghost ring sites). Am I missing something here? It seems like the M2 holds it's own with it being lighter, cheaper and holding an extra round. Many say the inertia system is cleaner and easier to field strip too. Is the big price premium for the M4 because the Marines use it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
