Benelli M3 Super 90 - Semi Auto & Pump Action Shotgun
The Benelli M3 is notable for allowing the user the choice of semi-automatic or pump-action operation. It is reliable and versatile, and well loved by both police forces and civilian sportsmen.
Pump-action operation is usually employed when shooting less powerful shells – such as rubber bullets – that do not generate enough recoil to operate the semi-automatic mechanism. Conversly, the semi-automatic mode can be employed with more powerful shells, absorbing some of the recoil. Switching between the two modes is done by manipulating the lever located at the front of the forend grip.
