RealJPedersen Posted August 24, 2020 Share Posted August 24, 2020 I am a Benelli newbie and excited to join in! I just purchased a M2 field with a 21" barrel as an all around shotgun. (I do have a break action, double barrel that I use for hunting and water fowl ... so I am setting this one up for more of a gaming / HD shot gun.) I have been reading all of the posts re: mag tube extensions here. I also read Nordic's chart regarding MXT extension lengths. I see that they say the +5 extends 3/4" past the end of the barrel according to their chart - yet I seem to see M2's listed as "8+1" with a 21" barrel where the tube lines up flush? What am I missing? I also understand that there may be different length nuts used to attach the tube extension. Is this true? (I only see one listed on the page for Benelli?) Anyways - looking for as close to a flush mount as I can get. Is the +5 the best way to go with the 21" field barrel? What do you guys recommend? Don't want to go longer than 21" for sake of navigating inside home if need be. I read here that 21" with fiber optic was potentially faster than the ghost ring anyways for HD which is why I went with the shotgun I did. (Trying to take your advice here! :) ) One other question, I have heard that a barrel clamp can effect the point of aim / point of impact when shooting slugs. Is this true? I a barrel clamp recommended for a +5 if I go that route? Do I need to "tune" the sights then for slugs? Thank you in advance for your help.
