Unit 91, you have just made my entire day much better! Thank you!

An M3 SBS hybrid......... That is amongst the most amazing things I have ever seen.

Professional job too, are those factory? The ghost ring front posts look amazing!

Oh how I want them......

Where did you find these art works?

Got the pics at work. They were being tested by our army. Didn't get to play with them myself.

The M3+ is a 14" M3 with a M4 return spring tube and collapsable stock.
Not sure who did the conversion. Either the army or Benellis NZ distributor.

I would gladly give my left testicle for either of these guns!!!

Alot of the collapsible stock guns that were imported during the "cosmetic features ban" didn't have stocks that collpased although they look like they do.

The benelli dealer I used to work at had a 1014 for a spell and it had a neutered stock like that.

(sounds of a brass band, marching metal feet and the woosh of flames igniting. The skyline is being lit up by some sort of pyrotechnic procession)

I want to bring back this thread from the dead. When I first got into shotguns, this post alone swayed me towards Benelli.

Here's some of my builds inspired by this thread:

Those are AWESOME! Is that M2 fitted with the M4 front end? I love the look of Benellis and I love shooting shotguns so the price isn't even a deal breaker but the controls are not lefty friendly. I was never able to find an M2 tactical with a left hand trigger group so I never bought one. Ideally, a left hand trigger group but with right side ejection, LPA sights, comfortech stock not the pistol grip, magazine extension.

It is indeed a "hybrid" Benelli as Unit91 once said.

Tis a M2 body, M4 front end, Supernova Comfortech stock, steel recoil tube. It was a project I completed about 5 years ago when I was here on the forum last.

It is my go to weapon; the Comfortech stock with the cheek riser works really well with my Trijicon SRO and other optics. I don't even use any pistol grip stocks to be honest. I recently got a Rob Roberts Trigger shoe and it is awesome. It shoots so well for me.

Interesting you lust after a M2 with a left trigger group. The trigger packs are very similar to right except the safety and lifter shape.

The safety is reversible, you will just have to deal with the shell and bolt release being on the right side.

Even on the LH guns the other two buttons stay on the right side. I could never figure out why Benelli doesn't make a mirrored image LH gun.

It is simply a cost factor.
