Are there some specific things that you want to know about the M3?

Try http://www.benelliusa.com/products/ for general information. (Scroll down and hit 'Special Use', then choose the M3.)

Converting from pump to/from auto is very simple. Locking ring in front of forward handguard/grip is twisted ~45° and locked/unlock from the tube magazine. As with the Super 90 series, it is recoil operated. Anything that hampers recoil could affect cycling.

Took mine out for the first real range session today. Sweet. Really, really, really, really sweet. I have heard about problems with mounting accessories, though.

I have one and it is a nice SG but since I got my 11-87P set up the way I want it, I haven't taken it out of the safe since.
