Is there a faster way of unloading a Benelli M2 (other than shooting the shells out) other than pressing that silver button on the side of the trigger guard and working the bolt?

I could have sworn I read somewhere here of some trick method. I searched but I couldn't find it.

I think I'll take two chickens.

Works on most shotguns, in the loading port push on the tab that is holding the shells in
the mag tube from coming out (side of the reciever). One by one they will release out of the tube.

Yep, just flip that sucker over with the loading port facing straight up. Index finger of the left hand, push in on the shell catch and remove shells from the loading port one at a time.

Just a note: The stronger the mag spring the more velocity the shells have when they come out of the mag tube.

I can not push hard enough to unload faster using that method. The fastest way for me:

Start with safety on.
Point muzzle pointed in a safe direction holding the shotgun with the left hand on the forearm.

Place the butt against the pelvis just couple inches inboard of the right hip.

Right thumb forward as if to shake hands, palm towards the left and adjacent to right side of the M2.

Press continuously up on the cartridge drop lever with the right ring (annular) finger, and retract the bolt handle with the right thumb.
Fully retract the bolt handle and eject the round.
As you allow the bolt to go forward it will strip the next shell from the cartridge carrier.
Allow the bolt to go forward as the cartridge is chambered.
Before the bolt is fully closed the next round will feed onto the carrier.
Immediately retract the bolt carrier using the bolt handle fully ejecting the shell.
Repeat this "short cycle until the shotgun is cleared and the bolt is locked to the rear.

I can unload faster at present than I can load, I can unload in about 5 seconds, my eight rounds into the gun from the belt, weak hand reload is about 10.5 seconds right now. I am gaining speed, albeit slowly.

I use a plastic storage tub to catch the dummy rounds with which I practice loading.

This is from the M2 manual
Unloading
(This operation must be carried out with the
gun safety catch engaged - see “Safety catch”
and the barrel pointed in safe direction)
To unload the shotgun, proceed as follows:
1) Engage the safety catch and pull the
cocking lever to open the bolt (fig. 23):
the cartridge in the chamber is extracted
and ejected (fig. 25).
2) Gently release the cocking lever to close
the breech block (fig. 24).
3) Reverse the gun, and, thrusting the carrier
down, press the cartridge retaining lever
from the front with the hand index finger
(fig. 26).
4) The cartridges will be released one by
one into your hand (fig. 27); the carrier
latch must be pressed for each released
cartridge.

Ok, face it...this is where the Remington (and almost all other shotguns) have an advantage over the Benelli. Just pull the trigger until empty (not at SMM3G) or make sure sure you can count correct and then don't load to many rounds!

Short answer= NO


For me using the cartridge retainer lever to release shells is waaaay slower than just holding in the little silver tab and just quickly hand cycling the action. I can empty all 8 shells in the tube in about 3 seconds.

Someone has to say it.. Pulling the trigger, I would dare anyone to try and unload one faster than that.. All joking aside, I don't have anything constructive to add, sorry.

Excellent advice, I wish I followed:
1) See everything.
2) Count to si... Umm... I mean eight.

Thanks to all who supported my venture into the dealer forum.
