New Combat Shotgun for NZ Defence Force

Defence has recently bought a number of additional Benelli M3 (NZ) Shotguns to enhance its current fleet of weapons.

The Benelli M3 (NZ) is a 12 guage shotgun capable of being operated in either pump-action or semi-automatic mode. Check out the shotgun in action at a recent tri-service training day.

    The gangs will have their orders in pretty soon.
    Funny how many weapons fall off the back of a truck

      Gangs can get anything they want anyway. Its the security services that needs better culling equipment.


        Hope you dont mean the security industry.Would not issue a popgun to some of those clowns


    Maybe if they issued them to the Police,there would be less leg shots in the future.And less wounded scumbags.

    Any good to use on Israeli drones? Shearer could include in his next gift parcel to Palestine.

      Sorry meant to say ‘against Israeli drones’.

    They are bloody good at bowling over goats etc….

  • They’ve never impressed me when I’ve seen them in three gun competitions. Maybe it was operator error but they seem to be pretty unreliable.
