M3 Convertible 12 Gauge Shotgun, RARE: PRE-BAN, HK IMPORTED MODEL $1,225.00
DON'T CONFUSE THIS M-3 WITH THE NON-HK IMPORTED, AND/OR POST BAN MODELS!
Type: selective pump-action or semi-auto recoil inertia operated Tactical shotgun.
The Benelli M3 is an updated version of the Benelli M1 shotgun. The M3 uses the same inertia recoil semi-automatic system as earlier Benelli M1s, but with the addition of another Benelli patented feature, which allows the shooter to lock the semi-automatic action and switch to the manually operated pump-action mode and back in the matter of seconds. The action type switch is located at the forward end of the forearm, and is formed as an annular knurled ring. Rotation of this ring either engages the action rods of the pump system and locks the semi-automatic recoil system, or disengages the action bars, locks the forearm and allows the inertia recoil system to operate the action automatically. This greatly improves the versatility of the shotgun, allowing it to fire low-powered ammunition (mostly of special purpose, such as flash bangs, smoke, less-lethal rubber or tear-gas projectiles) in the manually operated pump action mode, and to fire full power combat loads with slugs or buckshot in rapid semi-automatic mode.
The M3 is a high quality, very versatile shotgun, and is very popular as a police weapon, as a civilian weapon for self defense and sporting purposes (IPSC shotgun); and as a collectible.
Barrel length is 18.5”, Stock is pistol grip, sights are rifle.
