Chop, I had the same problem with my M2 using 3" turkey loads and buckshot, I also purchased new in 06, after using a M1 for so many years with no problems I was really upset about the M2 not cycling, I called customer service and sent the gun back to Benelli, they corrected the problem with a quick turnaround time, a little over 2 weeks, so I would recommend you call customer service and return your M2.
