The Benelli M3 is the shotgun Sean Applegarth was carrying when he arrived at Knockside. It uses a Benelli patented feature that allows to the shooter to lock the semi-automatic action and switch to the manually operated pump-action mode and back in a matter of seconds. This permits it to function with a wide variety of ammunition.

The M3 is a high quality, versatile shotgun, popular as a military or police weapon and, outside the UK, as a civilian weapon for self defence and sporting purposes.
