How does the M1 handle light loads. Do they cycle dove and light game loads. I have opportunity to buy a Super 90 M1 from a LGS but he won't let me take it out of the store nor will he promise to refund the money if it won't cycle el cheapo loads.

What is your experience with M1s and light loads? I can buy it for $500 and it looks to be in 90% condition, wood stock, barrel looks like it has matte finish. I am not familiar with Benelli products. Most of them out of my price range.

Anyone?

I have a left handed M-1, not sure what yr. it was made, but it will cycle 1 oz. 1185 fps loads flawlessly.

I don't own an M-1, but If by "light" you mean 1oz with 1200 + fps , then I guarantee you that any Benelli will cycle this load (I've cycled 1oz. with 1150 fps through my 3.5" Benelli S.Vinci flawlessly) so it will cycle through a 3" Benelli for sure

What load do you intend to use?

Walmart Specials. Whatever is on sale at Wallyworld.

They vary from season to season
Just keep in mind to stick to the 1oz. (or more) loads and you will be fine.

Best Wishes.

It should be fine with 1oz field loads like the Remington "Game Load" and Winchester "Super Speeds".
Dropping down to 1oz target loads and all bets are off.

Sounds like a decent price from what you described.
