Benelli M2 Field Shotgun | New Release for 2023 [Video]

George Thompson from Benelli talking about about Benelli M2 Series Shotguns. Anyone familiar with Benelli has certainly heard of the M2 before. It’s been a workhorse staple of our line for many years now, but we haven’t updated it since 2004. We’re happy to have completely refreshed the M2 product in our catalog. Now these are available in 12 and 20 gauge, different barrel lengths, different camo finishes such as OPTIFADE™ Timber, Mossy Oak Bottomland and Realtree Max-7, But what we did is we took a really hard look at the ergonomics of this gun and the lines on this gun and really focus in the pistol grip area to improve that reach to the trigger and on the forend to improve the grip particularly if you’re wearing gloves in really cold weather, functionally we added our ethos bolt system to this gun and a 2-piece shell latch which makes loading even easier than ever before.
