I’ve been wanting a 20 m2 for a long while, just have not pulled the trigger. 3.5” for fowl is the most useless thing ever invented. Follow up shots are less smooth and manageable due to the added recoil.I hunt ducks a lot. Have several very nice shotguns I rotate for various uses.
BUT if I needed a one-gun duck and goose solution, I'd pick a 20 gauge Benelli M2 with a 26" pipe, and run one of the modern Bismuth/Tungsten loads through it. Easier to maneuver in tight blinds, layouts, boats, etc, lighter to carry in, shoulders like nothing else. Anyone who says you need a 12 gauge to kill ducks/geese on an industrial scale simply doesn't know wtf they are talking about.
Oh and SBE3s are overrated, no need for a 3.5" shell. Flame on...
M2 poly stock
montefeltro wood stock
otherwise they are the same gun
Man I would love a synthetic camo one. All I see in the motefeltro in the bozeman area is black synthetic.They do offer a synthetic camo Montefeltro as well. Other than the different end cap and the Comfortech stock they are pretty much the same. My LGS has one new for $950 that has been sitting there for a while.
