Benelli Announces New Super Black Eagle 3 Color Options

Benelli USA offers waterfowlers exciting options for 2022 by introducing several new models in the company’s premiere semi-auto shotgun line. This year, the Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 models includes new Cerakote and camo combinations for their 28-inch barrel shotguns with 12- and 20-gauge 3-inch chambers.

The Super Black Eagle 3 is recognized by serious waterfowlers as the world’s finest, most reliable semi-auto shotgun available. Now, the SBE 3 offers two new Cerakote color options that deliver both concealment and durability.

For hunting flooded timber, the new Tungsten/GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Waterfowl Timber combination blends the muted hue of the barrel and receiver’s Tungsten Cerakote with GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Waterfowl Timber camo on the stock and forend. When the action turns to grassy swamps, the Patriot Brown Cerakote and GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Marsh pattern are the perfect combinations. Overall, this dual-color treatment provides hunters with a firearm that elevates the barrel and receiver’s clean lines and metal finish while expertly complementing the camouflage furniture.

Benelli’s Super Black Eagle 3 is the latest iteration of the lauded SBE series introduced over 30 years ago. The SBE 3 continues to lead the market due to its technologically advanced engineering, excellent ergonomics, and innovative features. The proven Inertia Driven System, recoil-absorbing Comfort Tech® 3 stock, drop and cast shim kit, shock-absorbing Comb-Tech® cheek pad, Crio®-treated barrels, and chokes are what set the SBE 3 apart from the competition. More importantly, the SBE 3 is the preferred choice of discerning waterfowlers for the most significant reason of all—unflinching, reliable performance in the most demanding hunting conditions on Earth.

The new Tungsten/GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Waterfowl Timber and Patriot Brown Cerakote/GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Marsh colorways are now offered in the following models:
