Our Assessment: This Benelli M4 is in Excellent condition. This is a great shotgun that is used by the military; if you are lucky you can have one too. The Benelli M4 Tactical shotgun is a unique, Auto-Regulating Gas-Operated (A.R.G.O.) semi-automatic. Originally designed in 1998 for the U.S. Marine Corps, the M4 (M1014) was extensively tested at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland where its reliability was proven. The M4 Tactical is the combat service shotgun of the U.S. military today with battle-proven reliability. It has a picatinny rail for mounting scopes, sights, and optics, and ghost-ring sights for quick target acquisition. For reliability when it counts, select the M4 Tactical shotgun. This one was made in 2006 and has hardly any wear and looks like it could have left the factory yesterday. Please see our photos and good luck!
