there is no difference...same gun. I wish I could actually answer the when did they import them question but I cant. To be honest, if I recall, it was relatively brief and was a few years ago. All of the m1's and m3's around me are benelli marked. Great shotguns through...simply great.
Thanks for the compliments!
It is the EOTech factory mount.
I got it much cheaper from Optics Planet opposed to buying it from EoTech. They are even cheaper if you get from them on E-gay! About $20 bucks cheaper than direct from Eo. Sweet solid mount too.
Absolutely no interfearence. I have run about 35 slugs and 12 rounds of 00 Buck and it caused no malfunctions and the mount stayed in place and on point of aim point of impactimpact.
