I am trying to decide whether to get a M3 or M4. If anyone knows which one is more reliable? Also are there as many aftermarket parts for the M3 as the M4? The main reason that I even want the M3 is for the pump action when using light loads. Will the M4 cycle light loads? Any help would be great.

Thanks

what's it going to be used for?

i'd say neither and get a used M1s90/m2s90 and a 870/500 for the price of the m4.

The M4 is the better gun. It is gas driven. It will cycle light loads just fine. The M4 has a lot more acc. made for it.

I picked up a benelli M1 Tacitcal 9 shot. I couldnt be more happy. I have got close to 2500 rounds through it. Not one issue. I shoot everything from low recoil shells to 3 incher. Best shotgun I ever owned. I payed like 800 for it

The M4 is by far the better choice, inspite of the fact you can hang a bunch of crap on it.

There are many posts on why the M3 isn't a good shotgun. Some people like them others that have them don't.

M4! The M3 is the worse one.

I love my M3. Not many shotguns can do both semi and pump, it is a little heavier though.

You can get an M3 for much less than an M4 although there are definitely less accessories for the M3.
