WTB Benelli M3 Collapsible Stock

Do you mean the newer gas operated M4? The M3 is a selectable semi-auto/pump shotgun. As far as stock options, the M3 had a top folding stock, a pistol grip stock, and field stock options. I can't recall any collapsible stocks offered, even on the new released models. I've been wrong before though. ?

Here's my pair of original HK M3T's for comparison:

Bambi that’s m4 porn., Which is perfectly fine

Outlawyer, my picture above is of a pair of factory top folding HK import Benelli M3T's, not M4. You can see the gap behind the forearm for it to slide back when used it pump mode. There is also a knurled ring with a throw level in front of the forearm where you select whether you want semi-auto, or pump. I was just posting the M3 pics to show the differences to clarify which one he was after. There are a bunch of M4 pics on this site, but I'll put one here at the bottom for comparison.

If there is such a thing as a factory collapsible stock specifically for a M3, I haven't heard about it. Now that I think about it, perhaps one from a M4 would fit the standard (non-folding) M3's. The M3 folders have a completely different action system than the non-folders.
*edit* Searching these forums I found one that states the NEW M3's will accept the M4 collapsible stock:

On a quick Google search (since I am curious), I found a really old thread that referenced it. https://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=32240

This would have been for the original run. I don't know what all was changed for the newer re-released ones other than losing the ghost load capability. I know there are other changes too. One of the forum members on here posted some of the variations in the history of the M3 production along with pictures. My searches for that thread though come up empty. I haven't done anything to mine because I love them the way they are. They aren't that common.

 

M4. See there is no gap behind the forearm, nor a rail surface for it to slide against:
