M2 question


Recommended Posts

I currently own a SBEII and an M4, and I'm considering adding an M2 to the mix. Are all M2 receivers drilled and tapped for a picatinny rail? I'd like to get the 21" field version, and add a 26" barrel for bird shooting. In the off season I'd like to run the shorter barrel and add some sort of sight to it. Another option would be to pick up a tactical version and run the 26" on it to bird hunt. How easily is the rear ghost ring sight removed? Any opinions on these options?

M2 field version is not d&t'd. I use a 21" M1 for skeet, sporting clays, SD pheasants, N. FL ducks, quail, and the occasional 3-gun match. That's why they make interchangable chokes. I think the 21" is the perfect length, but that's just me. I just got a 21" M2 but haven't gotten it outside yet.

If you got the tactical M2 and added a rail/optic for off bird season, taking it off for birds, you would be taking off/putting back on the rail and rear ghost ring time and again. Since the receiver is aluminum, you run the risk of stripping the receiver threads in the process, creating a mess for you.
