SBE 3, the semi-automatic that offers superior ballistic performance. A genuine concentrate of technologies. The Comfortech 3 system for reducing recoil combined with the latest generation CombTech comb ensures total comfort for the user. The loading and unloading operations are made even easier by the Easy loading system, and the firearm is always ready to shoot thanks to the innovative closure of the Easy Locking bolt. The trigger guard assembly has been designed for fast access to the trigger, activation of the safety and the cut off, and the ergonomic fore-end guarantees an optimal balance. The firearm features cryogenic barrels and knurled chokes that ensure compact, even patterns.

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.
ComforTech 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.
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.
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.
AirTouch is a checkering available as standard on all ComforTech grips and fore-ends of inertia shotguns and Argo E Benelli rifles. The aerodynamics of the small spheres ensure superior grip and allow for quick shouldering for a firm, effective and comfortable grip. The AirTouch checkering of the grip ensures that your hand can breathe naturally for a superior grip.
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.
