Stoeger m2000 shotgun uses the same intertia drive system! hence a fast cycling gun as well, although a lot cheaper than a benelli :)

Which model benelli is being used in the vid, and can we get a comparison between this shotgun and the beretta xtrema 2?

I think these guns are designed with sport/hunting in mind, how good are they as far as HD/SD tactical applications are concerned.

I know bro 12 gauge recommends pump action shotties for HD/SD, why is that? Wouldn't such a fast cycling gun be better?

Pump action is recommended for defence simply because it has a lower chance of failure.

Benelli's are awesome but pretty expensive. The group which owns Benelli also owns Franchi and Stoeger, and have replicated Benelli's Inertia Driven system across all three. The Benelli brand caters to the high end of the market, Franchi covers the middle ground, while Stoeger, which is being manufactured in Turkey, deals with the lower end of the market.

More interesting thing is that this group is owned by Beretta. :) It dosen,t replicate inertia system on all Beretta brands Teknys, Stonecoat, Urika and Extrema2. These all are gas operated guns.

16-09-2009, 11:19 AM
That is indeed a point to ponder over. Maybe they wanted to be part of the market for both systems...

very rare in Pakistan

These guns were used to be imported here but suddenly people started calling these guns unreliable. News spread by word of mouth and buyers scared away so were the arms dealers. Know Benelli M3 is considered the most unreliable shotgun of the top notch ever imported. Irony is that there was nothing wrong with the guns but with the usage of the guns. An inertia driven gun is required to be mounted on a hard surface(shoulder) to harness the recoil energy so that inertia spring could work flawlessly. Otherwise, gun may fail to cycle reliably in semiauto function unless spring is tuned for a specific load(as you can see in the video guns working flawlessly without being mounted on the shoulder) to cycle at lower energies.

Salam All,
Benelli IS the worlds fastest cycling shotguns

16-09-2009, 10:19 PM
I believe it finds itself in very worthy hands :D

Nice infoo guyz ... Moeen bro frm where did u get that benelli frm ?


17-09-2009, 06:20 PM
The Benelli M1 is amazing, it cycles faster than any other shotgun and is a dream on duck shoots ..... Its on my MUST BUY list :-)

The Stoeger Shotguns are known to have cycling problems with Shaheen Number 8 shells but do a much better job with Shaheen Number 8 super shells .....

The inertia driven systems DO-NOT cycle ordinary Shaheen Shells very well and i have seen them fail on many occassions over the last few years .........

I am amazed that u never fired this gun ? Any plan of selling it ? And can u tell me wats the cost of importing one ?


21-11-2010, 01:39 AM
Yes, the gun was available in Pakistan-both imported finished versions and locally assembled from imported parts.

21-11-2010, 01:42 AM
I have one handed down to me by my father. I have used it extensively in hunting for the last 8 years. Fired hundreds of rounds mostly SHAHEEN without any fail.
