The M1014 is a variant of the Benelli M4 Super 90 Combat Shotgun and has been adopted by the US military.
The M1014 can be found in the armory of Special Operations Forces (SOF), regular forces and tactical teams such as the USMC Special Reaction Team.
The M1014 is a semi-automatic, 12-gauge shotgun which can fire a range of rounds including 00 Buck, bird shot, rifled slugs, M1030 breaching rounds, non-lethal rubber pellets and CS rounds.
The shotgun features a Picatinny rail for the mounting of various accessories such as scopes and laser aiming devices.
The Benelli M1014 has been in service with the Marine Corps for almost 20 years, during that time it has gained a well-deserved reputation for being a reliable and devastating semi-automatic combat shotgun. The M1014 Limited Edition is almost an exact copy of the Corp’s service shotgun and features an American Flag engraved onto the receiver. The stock of the M1014 Limited Edition is skeletonized, but still features an ample recoil pad and cheek rest.
The secret behind the Benelli M1014’s reliability and combat effectiveness is its Auto Regulating Gas Operation (ARGO) system. It utilizes dual stainless steel, self-cleaning pistons that operate directly against the rotating bolt when firing. The advantage of the ARGO system is that it eliminates complex mechanics found in many comparable semi-automatic shotguns that tend to foul up faster and are more difficult to clean.
The Benelli M1014 Limited Edition features a Picatinny rail located on the top of the receiver just forward of the shotgun’s Ghost Ring rear sight. The Picatinny rail mount is ideal for mounting reflex or holographic sights like the Aimpoint Mirco T2 Reflex Sight or the EOTech 512.A65 Holographic Sight. The M1014 is finished with an MIL-SPEC anti-reflective coating that also makes the shotgun highly resistant to corrosion.
