The Beretta Optima Plus and the crio-Plus like in the M2 and SBE II will screw into the benelli or beretta barrels but if you switch them around they throw odd patterns. I believe this is due to the ID of the bore being different between the two manufacturers barrels. the old optima and the crio chokes (M2 and SBE II are Crio Plus) were the same thread and Dia but were also not interchangeable due to different bore Diameters if I remember correctly.
But this thread is only for the purpose of finding out what Carlsons and benelli said about this blown barrel...
