Default World's Fastest Semi-Auto Shotgun??

OK, I'm throwing this out there... the Benelli M4 Shotgun has one of the fastest semi-auto actions out there, bar none. Here's a demonstration.

How about this...eight shots in just a smidge over 1 second.

Shotgun in the video has had no modifications to its trigger or action, in any way, just a full length mag tube installed.

Find something faster in a semi-auto?

Post it up here, but remember...eight shots in 1.2 seconds...has to be that fast or faster.

A lot has to do with the skill of the shooter, but I'd bet a Saiga 12 would be right up there.

If you're talking about controlled shots, I don't believe there's much difference between any of them.

The gas guns like the M-4 or Rem 1100 might be slightly faster than the M-2 or the old 11-47 due to the reduced recoil of gas guns. But the difference, if any, is more theoretical than practical.

I've always been told the inertia action of the M2 Benelli was faster than the ARGO M4.
My former PD Sgt (now deceased) had an M2 shorty and loved to show off how he could empty the gun (6+1) before the first ejected round hit the ground. That is hardly scientific though!
I own an M4 and it is faster than I am.

This thread is like comparing a semi auto pistol to a revolver. Any idiot can miss faster with a semi auto pistol than a revolver. But when you compare IDPA times the revolvers are just as fast as the semi autos. The same thing applies to shotguns. The pumps are just as fast as the semi auto shotguns at actually hitting a target with a full power load. The muzzle flips just as much with a semi auto as a pump. It's more about the shooter than the gun.

Regardless of how fast the gun is. It's going to come down to the shooter. Most guns seam to be faster than any shooter is capable of pulling. But I might be wrong. (Anyone bump fire a shotgun lol)

exactly my point. its a snake oil sales pitch that means nothing to the average shooter. its just designed to wow people and get you to buy it.
