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.
The innovative progressive recoil absorption system kicks in gradually according to cartridge and ammunition loading. This is the true essence of comfort, an invisible, yet highly sensitive system.
The Power Bore cryogenic barrel with selected bore and very small diameters ensures greater speed and target penetration. Power Bore Crio: the ideal bore for a perfect hit and to be sure you’ll never miss the target.
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.
WoodFx is a laser treatment that enhances and emphasises the wood grain, lending a shiny refined look to stock and fore-end. The wood is more aesthetically pleasing.
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.
