    Thanks for bringing this thread back to update us! One of these days I will pick one up.
    My dad died, and my grandfather died, and my great-grandfather died. And the guy before him, I don't know. Probably died.

    I found it an interesting trip down memory lane, as well as how far the platform has evolved with regard to implementing it properly with accessories that allow and support that. My M4 SBS has quickly become my favorite gun under nods.

    This was my Benelli, in 2011.


    This is one of my Benell M4's today (The other is in NFA jail, but will be set up identical except with a T2 using FCD caps instead of an H2, which, interestingly, when in the "0/off" position, is GREAT! for passive aiming, as it's about setting NV2 equivalency on the T2):

    Circa 2008, my first Benelli vs Today, my 10th?


    The shorter stock allows better mechanics, though.

    I do, however, LOVE both M4's that I have owned. Both have been flat out reliable, both have been deadly accurate with whatever I feed them, and both pattern buckshot very well with the stock choke, and even better when you find an aftermarket one they like (I run Trulock MOD Flush-Fit Stainless chokes as a matter of preference).

    I don't get it, the shotgun is mentally challenged simple, dead-nuts reliable, and pretty darn user-friendly after you figure out that the sights are to be used different from what you are used to (dots DO NOT line up when used correctly).

    So...why all the hate? Are you all just a bunch of pump-gun lovers that are having trouble with "the new thing", or have you had failures/ect. that have shaped your opinions?
    If your using Flight Control buckshot no Choke will provide the best accuracy with slugs and Federal Buckshot I replaced my stock Mod choke for a Cylinder choke !

    I tested LE133 out of my M4 Entry model at 30m, and 6 shots resulted in all 56 pellets on paper with an 18.5" extreme spread.

    Not just "why all the hate for a benelli" ...I notice there is a lot of, not hate, just apathy perhaps toward shotguns in general. Perhaps they may have fallen out of favor due to AR pistols ? PDW? AR's in general? Associates of mine have sold their SG's, multiple reasons, limited capacity, cumbersome, etc. Given a choice between an AR pistol with RDS & 30rd mag vs aSG with even 7+1 of 00 buck, I opt for the AR. To each his own.
