BENELLI M3 Tactical Shotgun Semi-auto/Pump 12GA-19.75″
One of the “Benelli Super 90” line of semi-automatic shotguns, the Benelli M3 Tactical is a dual-mode (hybrid pump-action and semi-automatic) shotgun created and produced by Italian firearms company Benelli Armi SpA.
The M3 features the exclusive Inertia-driven action system initially seen in the M1 and can contain up to seven rounds. The M3 is unique for giving the user the option of pump-action or semi-automatic operation.
The Benelli M3 also has a removable stock that lets the user select between a stock with a pistol grip or the conventional shotgun stock.The Benelli M1 shotgun has been modified into the Benelli M3.
The M3 has the same semi-automatic inertia recoil technology as the older Benelli M1, but it also has an additional, unique Benelli innovation that enables the shooter to lock the semi-automatic action and quickly switch to manually operated pump-action mode and back.
The action type switch, which is shaped like an annular knurled ring, is situated at the forward end of the forearm.
This ring rotates to lock the semi-automatic recoil system and engage the pump system’s action rods, or it unlocks the forearm and disengages the action bars to let the inertia recoil system operate the action automatically.
This increases the shotgun’s adaptability by enabling it to fire full-power battle loads with slugs or buckshot in semi-automatic mode as well as low-powered ammunition (often of particular purpose, such as less-lethal rubber or tear-gas projectiles) in the manually controlled pump action mode.
For police or military versions, an underbarrel tubular magazine typically carries 8 rounds; certain civilian models may store fewer.
