M1 Field vs M2

I love my M1 Field, but it's getting close to retirement.

 

My original plan was to bump up to the M2, however,

I was in Scheels the other day and noticed a used, but in mint condition M1 for darn cheap.

 

So here's my question. Does the fancy choke system, recoil pad and dampning system really matter that much? i mean.. I have never noticed a sore shoulder or had problems with muzzle jump with my M1.

 

Looking for honest answers. We're talking about $650 savings between the two.

Is there any reason you're retiring the M1? Unless you just want a newer used or new Benelli or your gun doesn't function reliably, why would you buy another?

Great question. There's nothing wrong with my current gun. It still shoots flawlessly at the moment. I have had to replace some parts on it though. 1. Theres a plate inside the but of the gun that snapped in half. 2. The rod inside the recoil spring. I am sure the gun would last for years to come. It's just that I'd like to add another gun to the cabinet.

Rost, I completely understand, I've owned 4 Benellis. Benelli fixed my 17 year old HK SBE last year when it quit cycling and and it only cost me the price of shipping it to them. Shoots like new again. It's semi-retired now that I have the new Vinci.
