    Default Benelli M4 ARGO question

    Who has a Benelli M4? Does the ARGO gas system reliably cycle target loads? I've been looking at buying the M4 or the Turkish clone Toros T4 but if it's only going to run buckshot and high brass stuff, there's no point in getting it because that ammo is just as difficult to find as 9mm.
    Hope this is not Chris's blood ...

    Iíve got an m2 that eats everything and anything. The m4 is supposed to be a bit more finicky than the inertia guns. What has you looking at the m4 specifically? A 1014 is on my bucket list.

    Mine has always cycled the cheap federal or Winchester 100 round vale packs from Walmart with no problems

    I've always thought it was a gorgeous shotgun and recently found out the safety was reversible for left hand operation so my reason for not buying it is gone. I like the full length magazine tubes with barrel retaining rings up by the muzzle so it has that edge over a Beretta 1301.

    Has it always worked with the light shells or did you have to "break it in" with slugs? I've heard some people say it won't/shouldn't/can't cycle low brass but I see it on video all the time. Also, all of the autoloading shotguns I've owned functioned just fine with birdshot so I'm inclined to believe that will continue. Or hope it will anyway.

    It shot light shells with out any break in at all.I also thought I would have to brake it in when I was doing research before I got it
