M3 is a dual mode (semiautomatic and pump action): M3 is one of the best possible choice for any operational or defense requirement. This is thanks to its flexible use (lethal and less than lethal ammos), easy handling, precision and high firing volume.
Two different operating mechanisms have been brought together in a single shotgun: semiautomatic and pump, to meet any defense requirement. The interchangeable stocks-fixed drop, variable drop and pistol grip-only increase the versatility of this weapon.
Essential design, simple construction, easy maintenance and mechanical precision for maximum strength and reliability.
The cleverness of the Benelli System lies in the rigor of its design, constructional simplicity and ease of maintenance. There are three main components: the bolt, that acts as an inertial mass and slides freely along guides made in the sides of the receiver, the locking head and the large free spring, mounted on the bolt.Its operations is ingenious and efficient.The brevity and ease of these movements together with mechanical precision and constructional simplicity guarantee an operating cycle which will not alter or jam, offering maximum resistance and extreme reliability.
