Left Hand

The world's broadest left-handed semi-automatic range, now also in gauge 20. The fast swing and aiming speed of inertia shotguns combine with natural, quick shouldering for left-handed shooters. The cartridge case is ejected from the left, away from your face and out of the field of view. Optimum performance and instinctive comfort for superb left-handed shooting.

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.

ComforTech

The Comfortech System is the first and only patent in the world capable of changing the rules of the shooting game. It is an integrated system made up of stock, butt plate and comb featuring high deformation capacity and capable of absorbing part of the recoil energy during firing. A patent that can offer superior shooting performance in terms of reducing recoil, muzzle climb, alignment and better target acquisition on the following shot. Precise, perfect shots are made even easier.

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.
