The only modification I have done to my Benelli M1 is to modify the bolt so I can load one in the chamber and one on the carrier when the mag is full, and to add a speedloader.
I would consider adding a GGGAZ single point sling attachment and painting the follower bright orange, and add a heat shield.
Other than that, I like the gun the way it is, as I can keep 9 rounds on a target at 10 yards in 1,47 seconds.
