Benelli M2 Tactical

I just picked up a Benelli M2 Tactical with ghost ring and ComforTech stock. I was wondering about some add ons. I'd like to put a side saddle on it, but I have heard that a side saddle can cause reliability problems, if the scews are tightened too far into the receiver. I have read that some side saddles are attached by velcro.

Are there reliable mag. extentions for the M2?

Has anyone found a way to attach a light to the forearm, and not the barrel - recoil operated system?

I would like to be able to shoot slugs from the M2 also. Has anyone had success with slugs and a smoothbore Benelli? What choke works well for both buckshot and slugs in the Benelli?

What America needs is not a good 5 cent cigar.
What America needs is a good source of cheap ammunition.

I have one and the standard M-2 Tactical barrel doesn't have a choke. I would also recommend a magazine extension versus a side saddle; they're problematic enough with a pump(Rem 870) but when using a gas or inertia action it'll be hit or miss.
A Colt Python's trigger pull is as smooth, beautiful and artistic as a Sidewinder sliding on the desert floor. It is concepts like this that the anti-gunners can never comprehend and why we fight so hard to keep them.

All I would add is a stock cuff shell holder at most...

Don't use a side saddle. It has been known to wear the holes oblong and make the guns unreliable. Clamp a light to the mag tube or simple buy one of these.

Enjoy. -Goodspeed
It's a trick. Get an axe.
