ACCOKEEK, MARYLAND –– The 20-gauge Benelli M2 Field with ComforTech™ beat out the competition and has been named the “2008 Golden Bullseye Shotgun of the Year.” In a rigorous comparison test and evaluation conducted by the editors of American Hunter the M2 Field won for its rugged reliability, innovativeness in design and function, and value to the consumer. The Golden Bullseye will be presented at the 2008 NRA Annual Meeting on May 15-18, in Louisville, Kentucky.
Lightweight, rugged and reliable, the M2 20-Gauge is a workhorse with the speed of a thoroughbred. Ideal for handling every hunting challenge, the quick-handling Benelli M2 is built around the ultra-reliable Inertia Driven® bolt system that allows the M2 Field to cycle 20-gauge cartridges, from 2 3/4″ target loads to the heaviest 3″ magnums.
Benelli engineers have applied the unique ComforTech™ recoil reduction system to the M2 20-Gauge. This revolutionary system worked wonders for 12-gauge M-2s and it makes the 20-gauge truly shooter friendly, fast and reliable, in fact the 20-gauge M2 Field may be the most comfortable shotgun you will ever shoot.
The M2 Field also features a cryogenically treated barrel and elongated choke tubes. The unique Crio® system stays cleaner longer and puts more pellets on target with dense, uniform shot patterns.
“We are honored that the Benelli M2 Field ComforTech™ 20-Gauge has been selected for this year’s award,” said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli USA’s VP of Marketing & Communications. “Earning this prestigious award from the NRA Publications group fittingly recognizes Benelli’s commitment to reliability, innovation and quality.”
