Benelli M2 Field Semi Auto Shotgun
One gun for all needs
If you've ever heard someone say that 80% of wild game is taken by 10% of the hunters. I am that 10%. I hunt everything in season, several times a week and I wanted just one shotgun, so I went with the M2. I couldn't be happier. This gun performs flawlessly on the skeet range, duck hole, dove field, turkey woods, and will drop a rabbit in its tracks. I can feed it any 2 3/4 or 3 inch shell with no fear of it not cycling.
I've had it 2 years and all my friends are switching to M2s or Benelli. I highly recommend this gun for any sport that you would need a shotgun for, just make a choke tube change and you're off.
Besides it's performance, my favorite part of the gun is how easy it breaks down and travels. I just break it down, put it in it's case, and throw it in my suit case and my wife doesn't realize that our family trip just became a hunting trip till it's too late!
Do yourself a favor, spend the extra money and just have one all around shotgun. Best investment I ever made.

Benelli M2 = 1 Amazing Shotty!
I purchased this shotty to be my all around, all purpose semi auto shotgun. The first weekend I owned it I put over 300 rounds down the 21" barrel without failure! We shot skeet, quail, pheasant, and I plan to use it as my turkey gun this spring. U get a total of 5 choke tubes with this fine weapon and all work very well.
I have always been a Mossburg or Winchester guy when it comes to shotguns and did allot of thinking before I pulled the trigger on a high end shotgun. I have absolutely no regrets about this purchase. The only thing I may do different is go with a 24" barrel instead of the 21", but the 21" may be more versatile.
Great shotgun at a decent price, especially when compared to other Benelli models and the features you get.

Fine Quality Shotgun
I have a benelli sbe 2 and after purchasing my m2 it kinda makes me wonder why I even have the sbe 2. I know each gun patterns differently even with the same choke, but my m2 is flat out impressive. This gun just fits me right and when shouldering and shooting it, its like it is a part of me. Some will argue that the recoil is absorbed by the comfort tech stock but this gun still has a little more sting than a gas operated gun. This gun shoots about a 70/30 pattern which I really like so I can aim right under what I am shooting at. If it were between this and the sbe 2 and you weren't gonna need to shoot 3.5's then I would say definitely get the m2. Outstanding shotgun!!

I've quite literally gone through thousands of rounds with this gun. I have immediate access to land I can shoot clays on. I would shoot this gun three to four days out of every seven day week. I went through at least a hundred rounds during each session. It didn't matter whether I was shooting expensive shot shells with high brass, or the cheapest shot shells I could possibly fine. The gun never, ever, failed to cycle; period. I was able to shoot my own reloads through the gun without issue too. I've shot a number of different semi - auto shotguns by numerous manufacturers. Reliable cycling is one of the most prevalent issues; especially with light target loads. I put on a Nordic Comp 10 shot magazine extension with this thing too. Still no problems. It's simply an incredible gun. In addition to it's never fail reliability, the cyclic rate is incredibly fast too. This is a gun you won't outrun.
