Benelli, the world’s leaders in innovative firearm technology, including the ground-breaking Benelli Inertia Driven system, effective Comfort Tech recoil-reduction systems, and the BE.S.T. anti-corrosion coatings, announced today their attendance at the 2022 National Rifle Association Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, Texas.
The Benelli booth, #1809, will host various new products that fit the needs of the most demanding hunters and sport shooters. Show visitors will have the opportunity to see several new rifles, semi-auto shotguns, and limited edition over-under shotguns, all built with the quality control and innovation designs Benelli is known for.
Guests that favor style and attention to detail will want to check out the new Benelli Lupo BE.S.T. rifles chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, and .300 Win-Mag—both available with premium AA-grade walnut stocks well-thought ergonomics that make Lupo one of the most comfortable and accurate rifles on the market today. The new Lupo BE.S.T. rifles include the field-proven, Benelli Surface Treatment (BE.S.T.) on the barrel—a finish so dependable in preventing rust, corrosion, and abrasion that Benelli backs it with a 25-year warranty.
Serious waterfowl hunters will be drawn to the all-new Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 in 3-inch chamber 28-gauge—perfect for hunting flooded timber in the southern regions as well as the beaver dams and cattails of the north, where tight quarters favor the sub-gauge. And with more hunters seeking smaller-gauge shotguns, the new Super Black Eagle 3 28-gauge 3-inch models fit the needs of waterfowlers looking for greater challenges with a scaled-to-suite gun.
The new SBE 3 models continue the unfailing performance and rugged construction that has made the Super Black Eagle the first choice among discriminating shotgunners yet do so in a lighter weight, faster-handling package ideally suited for those decoyed birds in flooded timber. Offered in Crio®-treated 26- and 28-inch barrel lengths, the 28-gauge SBE 3s are modest 5.5 and 5.6 pounds, respectively, with 47.5- and 49.5-inch overall lengths.
Upland double-barrel owners who appreciate fine craftsmanship will want to see the new 828U Limited Edition. This is a premium over/under shotgun with an exquisite blend of contemporary styling and innovative technology. The 828U stands apart with its nickel-plated steel frame and elegant game scene engravings along the sides, top, and bottom of the receiver—a perfect complement to the shotgun’s luxurious, satin-finished AA-grade walnut furniture.
