M3 Tactical Benelli-M3
M3 Tactical Benelli-M3
  • Convertible shotgun
  • A good value between the M2 and M4
  • Very versatile
  • No optics rail
  • Tough to find in stock
Editor’s Note:

“The Benelli M3 is my favorite shotgun of all time. It might be the most capable and versatile shotgun on the market. And it’s one of the rare convertible shotguns. A convertible shotgun is one that allows the user to swap between a semi-automatic action and a pump action. The benefit of the M3’s system is that you can use any shotgun round on the market. The pump-action mode allows it to cycle low recoiling rounds that won’t cycle in a semi-auto action.” — Travis Pike

Benelli M3 Variations & Comparables

Benelli M4

Benelli M4


Johnny B says “Benelli’s M4 is what we would call a good Italian auto shotgun. It’s the best combat shotgun on the market and would do phenomenal in a home defense setup or tactical arena. This autoloader looks great, runs smooth, brings that cool factor we all like from our guns. Most importantly, you can trust your life to it.” This 12-gauge shotgun is a fast-shooting, smooth semi-auto model. Featuring an 18.5-inch barrel, it measures 40 inches in total length with a weight of 7.8 pounds. It offers up a 14.75-inch length-of-pull. Drilled and tapped, you can throw an optic on it and rock and roll.

Available in both 12 and 20-gauge and with compact options and varying barrel lengths available, there is a Montefeltro out there for just about everyone.

final verdict

The Benelli M3 is the sibling of the M2 and M4 — nestling in that nice middle area. It offers plenty to keep things interesting though. In fact, it’s a favorite around the Pew Pew office.
