Raffaello Be Diamond is the first shotgun to ever use the BE.S.T. treatment, the exclusive Full Protection treatment that lends makes barrel and breech an exquisite look and makes them much more resistant to corrosion. A precious, unique, inimitable semi-automatic, a genuine concentrate of technology. Comfortech 3 reduces perceived recoil and the new, latest-generation CombTech comb eases the impact on the face. Thanks to the Easy Locking system, the weapon is always ready to fire. The Window System guarantees maximum safety as the cartridges in the magazine are visible at all times. The Power Bore cryogenic barrel and cryogenic chokes ensure excellent ballistic performance. Raffaello Be Diamond is the ‘diamond’ of the Benelli range.

BE.S.T.

B.E.S.T. is an exclusive Benelli technology to guarantee maximum resistance to corrosion, abrasion, wear and the elements. B.E.S.T. surface treatment uses cutting-edge hybrid technology, covered by trade secret. The coating has characteristics similar to those of a diamond when it comes to hardness, resistance and precious finish. B.E.S.T. is completely eco-friendly, since the process used involves no dangerous emissions for the environment.

Comfortech 3

ComfortTech 3 is the extreme evolution of the ComforTech system. The most efficient Full Comfort system in the world. With its improved geometry, ComforTech 3 significantly reduces the perception of recoil and helps re-target faster. Control is optimised in each phase to ensure total comfort for the user. A solution critical to shooting accuracy.

Combtech

Benelli's technological evolution has generated the new CombTech comb to reduce the impact on your face. The combination of an elastic structure with an ergonomic system capable of adapting to the shape of your cheekbone and returning instantly to the original position absorbs the impact on your cheek.

Steel Shot

Each barrel marked with the lily emblem undergoes National Proof House testing for steel shot ammunition. The Crio Steel Shot chokes feature elongated chamfers to guarantee maximum ballistic performance and resistance when using Steel ammunition.

Crio System

In cryogenic technology, the first element you need to consider is the barrel. The expansion caused by friction heat and pressure is limited, so that the barrel can vibrate and expand evenly on firing. The pattern provided by a cryogenic barrel is wider, more regular and more uniform, with pattern centres that will not shift as you fire shot after shot, to the benefit of shooting accuracy. Cryogenic treatment also has positive effects on the life of the barrel, which is more resistant to wear and less susceptible to attack by combustion residues. Benelli was the first company to apply Cryogenic Treatment to the barrel and choke of a light firearm on an industrial scale in order to enhance its ballistic performance.

Inertia Driven System

Rigorous design, simple construction, easy maintenance and mechanical accuracy guarantee maximum durability and extreme reliability. The cleverness of the Benelli System lies in its rigorous design, simple construction and ease of maintenance. The fast, minimised operating movements combined with mechanical accuracy and essential construction ensure an unaltered working cycle that is perfect every time, maximum strength and utmost reliability.

Window System

The utmost safety and functionality: fast, easy visibility of the cartridges in the magazine. The Window System has been added to the peculiar technological features of the Benelli semi-automatic. This patented system allows you to see all cartridges present in the magazine through a slot in the lower section of the fore-end. The advantages in terms of safety and functionality are considerable. A bright red signal indicates that the firearm is loaded.
