The Benelli M4 Tactical 5+1 capacity 18.5” barrel 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun is an evolution of the M1, M2 and M3 line. Benelli currently offers the M4 Tactical in four models. All have the same 18.5” length barrel and share most overall dimensions. The differences? You can get the guns with either an Anodized Black receiver with a Phosphate barrel or with a Titanium Cerakote receiver and barrel. Regardless, other parts such as the forend and stock are matte black. Beyond color, you have your choice of pistol grip (standard stock) or standard grip (tactical stock).
Each M4 Tactical comes with one M choke tube. The chamber handles both 2 3/4″ and 3″ shells. The gun has a standard ghost ring sight, but it also has a medium-length Picatinny rail atop the receiver. Length of pull is 14 3/8”, drop at comb is 1 1/2″ while drop at heel is 2 1/4″. Overall length is 40” and weight is 7.8 pounds for all four models.
The M4 was designed for the US Military and entered service circa 1999 as the M1014 Joint Service Shotgun. The gun’s wizardry derives from Benelli’s patented ARGO system. ARGO stands for Auto-Regulating Gas-Operated. This self-cleaning, piston-driven action has a simple short-stroke dual-piston design. ARGO eliminates the need for a more complicated mechanisms like heavy action bars and connecting linkages found on other similar shotguns.
You can also option out these shotguns with a full set of five chokes: C, IC, M, IM, F as well as three-dot tritium sight inserts.

The M4 Tactical shotgun is the combat service shotgun of the U.S. Joint Services today. The M4 is a unique, Auto-Regulated Gas-Operated (A.R.G.O.) semi-auto 12-gauge. The metalwork is chrome-plated, anodized or coated with heavy phosphate to prevent corrosion under the most grueling conditions.
- The Benelli M4 is a semi-automatic shotgun produced by Italian firearm manufacturer Benelli Armi SpA, and the last of the “Benelli Super 90” series of semi-automatic shotguns. The M4 uses a proprietary action design called the “auto-regulating gas-operated”
- The M4 was the first gas-operated shotgun produced by Benelli. Its function is designed around an entirely new design called the “auto-regulating gas-
- operated” (ARGO) system. The short-stroke design uses two self-stainless steel pistons located just ahead of the chamber to function opposite a rotating bolt, thereby eliminating the need for the complex mechanisms found on other gas-actuated automatics. The ARGO incorporates only four parts: two symmetrical fore-end shrouds containing two small steel pistons that push directly against the bolt.
