Hi all,

Just got this in on Saturday. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I will do so next week. I'm on vacation for a week, so my duty issue 14" entry is locked up in the safe at work. I want to shoot them side by side to compare, and see if the muzzle brake is a help or a hinderance.

Take care,

Is that a factory gun or a special run.

There ia a Benelli M1S90 just like that at a gun shop up here. They are known for their gunsmithing and said it was factory, but I have yet to see one anywhere else.

Looks great.

I have the same muzzle break on my Benelli M1 Practical, but it has a 26" barrel. I like you 14" better.

A local shop had one of these when I got mine. It was tagged as "breecher'. The standoff was wide enough that it made picking up the front blade more difficult IMO.

Please let us know how you like it.

Hi All,

Thanks for the comments. It is a factory model that uses the Practical model muzzle brake, permanantely attached...at least that's what the dealer told me. They said that Benelli had a large surplus of the 14" barrel guns in the US and wanted to be able to sell them off easier (since they are 18" and legal everywhere) than the NFA guns. I guess Benelli wanted to sell them all off since they are now pushing the M2 Tactical. I like the M2, but I'm just more confortable with the M1 since that is what I use on tactical entries at work. Since my work M1 has never ever missed a beat, I also feel fairly confident in it's dependability.

The factory box is marked showing it described as it sits, so I do not believe that it is any kind of local gunsmith special. If anyone is interested, I'll post a pic of the box with the model #, etc. showing...


Take care,


JJ
