Now, Benelli takes the M2 to the next level with the issue of the Performance Shop M2 3-Gun Edition, the ultimate tactical competition gun that's simply perfect.

Like all Benellis the heart of the M2 3-Gun Edition is its ultra-reliable Inertia Driven operating system, which has been worked to ensure that the bolt runs as smooth as oiled glass. The trigger group has also been honed and polished to eliminate creep and travel, which provides a crisp let off for better control over timing of the shot that'll have you on target more consistently, shot after shot.

This fine-tuned tactical gun incorporates custom parts from Nordic Components that promote efficient handling and enhanced performance. It begins with the fitting of a larger bolt release, called a Speed Button, designed to eliminate any fumbling during quick reloads. An extended tactical-style bolt-cocking handle integrates a unique swirled design that provides a quick and sure grip, and which, aids the effort of loading and unloading.

The M2 3-Gun Edition's loading port has been widened, edges beveled and the carrier modified to assist with the speed and ease of loading the extended 8-shot magazine. Completing the magazine customization, heavy-duty Teflon-coated followers have been fitted to ensure the lowest drag possible and to eliminate unnecessary friction within the magazine. These enhanced followers are also designed to prevent over compressing the magazine spring, which can result in premature spring failure.

The M2 3-Gun Edition Crio® barrel comes fitted with a HIVIZ Comp green LitePipe front sight with a bead size of .135." for quick target acquisition in low light conditions. Extra LitePipes in different sizes and colors are also included.

Designed for serious "run-and-gun" style 3-gun shooting under intense pressure, the Performance Shop M2 3-Gun Edition is not just a competition gun-this is a gun you trust with your life.
