Benelli Model M4 Tactical No. 85360 12 Gauge, $1999

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TEST GRADE: B-
Acknowledging its reputation as a fine military shooting tool, we could not get past its higher price and failure to cycle low-velocity loads during our field tests. In addition, a 12-pound trigger pull borders on unacceptable in our ranking of a high-quality self-defense firearm.

We would have ranked the M4 a little higher if not for the small bolt handle, tiny bolt-release button, and safety at the back of the trigger guard. They were simply not as easy to use as the oversized features of the other two semiautomatics in the test.
The Benelli had a quick and easy to use Ghost Ring rear sight.
The 7.5-inch-long forend was about half the size of the other two forearms, leading to less-than-stellar handling.
