The Benelli Montefeltro vs. The M2 – A closer Look On The Technical Nitty-Gritties

The Benelli M2 is an advanced shotgun which is fast and accurate. The gun comes with a 28 inch barrel but does not have a 30 inch option. Experts opine that a 30 inch variant would have been a great addition to it. However, comparing it with other guns in its range, the Benelli M2 shotgun is much faster and doesn’t have much weight as it does not have a piston or a gas collar. The design is quite a nice one as it does not require cocking rods as well. Benelli Shotguns are a perfect fit where one is up to some serious hunting. Especially those looking for a gun to hunt down a pig, where the shot needs to be precise and powerful from a good distance, then the Benelli M2 shotgun would be apt. This Benelli shotgun also has a rotating bolt-head. This is attached by means of a short to a beach-block. This thing compresses when a shot is fired. The working part of the gun moves to the back thereby ejecting the cartridge case to load a fresh mount.
