Benelli M3 Question--

First---I have an awesome wife. She gave me the go-ahead to purchase a Benelli M3 I've had my eyes on for awhile. Gun Broker...so shipping will take a couple of days. Until then I have a couple of questions for the MDS brain trust. I'm thinking I would like to add an extended magazine tube on this firearm in the not too distant future. I've seen several photos from MDS members who own shotguns with extended magazine tubes so I'm guessing they are pretty much legal with out too much difficulty...but since it is Maryland I feel the need to ask. Also, there was a Benelli M1 thread (I think) where someone posted several OE parts on the Benelli M1 would need to be swapped out in order for the tube extension to be ATF legal... (922R?)so that is another question I have about the M3. Will I need to swap out some parts on the M3 in order to add the extended magazine tube and keep it legal? Thanks in advance for the help!

There's no problem with MD law. You could theoretically run afoul of 922r, so replacing parts might be a thing, but this is realistically not something you'd ever get busted for.

I have an H&K marked Benelli M1S90. I prefer the Nordic components mag extension (made in USA) and a GG&G barrel/mag clamp. I found the Nordic Comp to be better made and looks better than the OE one

Much appreciated... I'll definitely be delving into this whole 922r thing just for grins and giggles if nothing else--

A good reference:

https://orchidadvisors.com/compliance-with-18-usc-922r/

IF you are lucky, the one that you are looking at is a HK import from before 1990.

I have one and it is an amazing shotgun. I added a XS medium dot sight and the M3 is a blast to shoot.

Someone explain what 922R has to do with a complete firearm that he is not assembling?

Here is an explanation as it applies to the Benelli M4. I know I read this law up and down a couple of years ago when I got my M4 and decided to do a Form 1 SBS on it. I have forgotten a lot about how I arrived at the conclusion that I must swap out 3 parts for Made in USA parts, but that was my conclusion.

I got a two shot Sure Cycle tube extension for my M3. I like it just fine. The picture is so you can see how it matches up with the length of the barrel.

Whether 922(r) applies to the M3 might depend on whether it is classified as a sporting shotgun by the ATF or not.

https://www.ar15.com/forums/armory/B...922r/1-315625/

Might be that you cannot have a pistol grip AND more then 5 round capacity in the gun before it becomes "not for sporting purposes" and then 922r applies as far as "assembling" the gun.
