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.

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.
