Are these essentially the same gun/action with different furniture? Having trouble navigating Ben website. Thank you!

step rib on M2. synthetic stock (a most excellent one at that) on the M2 as well.

you can get the monte in synthetic but it won't be the trick recoil reducing version on the m2.

Wow... I was just going to ask this same question.. The Monte also has a longer magazine tube. Was wondering what justified the price difference, and now the Monte is offered in synthetic and camo ,20ga, for $1k.

Also, the montefeltro can't take a mag extension if that's something that would interest you.

The M2 is more of a waterfowl gun whereas the Monte is more of an upland bird gun.

They share the inertia action but the Monte holds one more round giving it a longer forearm and it has a flat rib compared to the M2 which has a raised rib. My Montefeltro points great and has functioned perfect over the last six months. I shot the ducks today, the geese a few days ago and one of the turkey's in that pile with it. The big birds all got 3' shells but I shot a lot of crows with it this summer using 7/8 and 1 oz target loads. It's light to carry and eats everything I feed it, I like the extra shell capacity when not hunting waterfowl.

Dunns is selling the 20 ga Montefeltro in camo for $799. Bought one today.

Basically the same gun with just some cosmetic differences. It depends if you like the flat vs raised rib. I've grown to like the raised rib more, and bought 2 SuperSport barrels, 1 in 12 and 1 in 20, for my Montefeltros. I would buy the M2 for rib alone.

M2=more choke tubes included and plastic carry case vs cardboard box----also easier to adjust LOP by replacing the recoil pad.

See if this helps any. https://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewto ... ht=#940247
It's an older post before some of the current Benelli models were out but. still applies for the most part. Today the Monte is now available in B/S unlike when this was first written.
