Salient Arms International Benelli M2 Packages

SAI Benelli M2 Performance Overview

As a semi-auto tactical shotgun, the Benelli M2 comes in several variations designed for military, law-enforcement and civilian use. This shotgun is already well known for its proprietary Benelli inertia system of operation, which uses a short-stroke recoil system housed in the butt stock. Omaha Outdoors offers Benelli M2 shotguns that have been upgraded by Salient Arms International (SAI) to their Performance Package, which advances this already popular firearm to a particularly finely tuned level. The gunsmiths at SAI have taken an out-of-the-box shotgun and provided the following modifications:

Trigger

  • Take-up and over-travel reduced
  • Trigger weight reduced to 3.5 pounds (approximately 3 pounds less than stock)

Bolt and Action

  • Bolt weight reduced (increases cycle rate for standard loads and allows the softer recoil of light loads to cycle the semi-auto action)
  • Bolt welded and re-cut for ghost load
  • Coated with black bonding or chromed with matte finish (creates abrasion-resistant and self-lubricating bolt surface for extended service)
  • Custom springs installed to allow inertia system to operate even with low-recoil and light loads
  • Over-size charging handle (lightened to match weight of stock charging handle)

Loading Port

  • Loading port extended and centered to allow shells to line up properly for easier loading
  • Lift gate welded and fitted for easier loading

Safety

  • Over-size safety installed

Sights

  • Fiber front sight

Barrel

  • 21-inch vent rib barrel
  • Nordic barrel nut
  • Nordic barrel clamp

Tube

  • Extended tube, 8+1 rounds (not including ghost load)
  • SAI proprietary aluminum follower

Stock and Grip Surfaces

  • Comfortable tech stock
  • Contoured recoil pad
  • Forend and stock stippled*
  • Tactical carrier release bar stippled to match stock and forend

*Stippling is a type of texturing, similar to checkering, applied to the polymer Benelli stock, forend and areas in contact with shooter’s hands. The improved texture aids in traction, and therefore control of the shotgun during target acquisition and recovery after recoil.

The Salient logo is laser engraved on the side to show that the shotgun has been customized by this leading gunsmithing group.
