ACCOKEEK, Md. (April 26, 2017) – Benelli announces the availability of a limited number of its famed Benelli M1014 shotguns, which will be available through authorized Benelli retailers beginning in June 2017.
The Benelli M1014 Limited Edition features the United States flag engraved on the receiver in honor of this model’s use by the U.S. Marine Corps.
Currently deployed by the U.S. Marine Corps in combat theaters around the world, the Benelli M1014 sets the standard for military shotgun performance and reliability. The Benelli M1014 Limited Edition comes standard with a fixed-position skeletonized stock with a pistol grip and separate cheek piece. Like other M1014 versions, the shotgun can be quickly disassembled without tools and the stock is interchangeable with accessory field or pistol-grip stocks.
At the heart of the M1014 Limited Edition is the ARGO (auto regulating gas operation) system that features dual stainless, self-cleaning gas pistons located forward of the chamber and operated directly against the patented Benelli rotating bolt. This configuration eliminates the need for complex linkages found in other gas-operated semi-automatic shotguns which foul quickly and are more difficult to clean.
All external surfaces of the M1014 Limited Edition are protected with an anti-reflective MILSPEC finish, making it extremely corrosion resistant and reliable in even the harshest environments.
The Benelli M1014 Limited Edition has an MSRP of $2,199.
