Our Assessment: The Model M1 Super 90 is a semi-automatic shotgun manufactured by Benelli. It is available in several versions for civilian, law enforcement and military use. It features the proprietary Benelli recoil system, known for its reliability and easy maintenance. Due to the inertia recoil system, the M1 should use heavier loads to cycle properly but because the action is inertia driven vs. the traditional gas cycling operation it can fire and reliably cycle lighter loads.
A few of us at the shop own M1 Super 90 shotguns and could not be happier! The ultra-reliable inertia system is low maintenance (unlike some of our significant others) and allows for reduced recoil as well.
This Super 90 was made in 1994 and is configured as the perfect sporting shotgun. If it’s good enough for the military, law enforcement, and professional competitors, it should do just fine for you.
