Default Oakley Ballistic M2 or M3.... Differences?

Again I am turning to my fellow LEO calgunners for some expert feedback. I have considering getting some Oakley Ballistic shades for patrol functions. Clear lense and tinted. Anybody have some experience with the product? Also, what's the difference between the M2 and M3 frame ? Looking forward to seeing the feedback.

I generally feel my M frame lenses are quite large. I prefer the smaller wrap arounds like the the radar.

I have a pair of M2 frames that I use for shooting and also use the Half Jackets for cycling. I don't know anything about the M3 frames. My M2's are light and comfortable and work well. I use Gas Cans for daily wear...

The m3 lenses rap around a bit more than the m2 and the rubber ear pieces on the back are gone on the m3. I haven't had the m3 but I have had the m2. I would say go with the m3 but either way you can't go wrong

Ive owned both. They are both about the same although the m3 have an extra anchor point in the center. My m3 broke at the hinge and my m2 are still going strong. It ultimately comes down to your style preferance. They both are great. The only other plus for the m2 is that there are more options when it comes to lens styles. The m3 are more limited since they are the newer style. Enjoy.

Can't say anything about the m3 but my m2's have been going strong for three years now. They've survived three lenses. Just picked up a pair of radars and they're even more comfortable though.
