The full redesign of our venerable Super Black Eagle platform. With carefully considered insights from our pro-staff and veteran hunters, Benelli design engineers have spent nearly 10 years in development with a focus on three areas of critical importance to the serious waterfowler: Improved ergonomics, intuitive, flawless functionality and an updated design, style and feel for the latest in modern waterfowling reliability that's all about the end game: Absolute superiority in the most unforgiving conditions.
Comfort Tech(TM) was the first of its kind. By splitting the stock diagonally and utilizing shock-absorbing chevrons, the entire stock was essentially turned into a recoil pad. This chevron system, now 13 years old, is still the most efficient design possible, and was the basis for the SBE 3 stock. The chevron size and location has been optimized on Comfort Tech 3. Furthermore, Benelli engineers have developed a new cheek comb pad, Combtech, which greatly reduces facial impact and vibrations.
The hallmark of Benelli strength and reliability, our clean-burning Inertia Driven System never requires adjusting, cycles consistently in conditions that border on the unfair and easily handles everything from light field loads to 3 1/2 " magnums. From a cleanliness and speed perspective, gas systems simply cannot compete-whereas Inertia-Driven Benelli shotguns are known to fire 500,000+ rounds and still function without flaw.
A larger bolt release and safety, along with an outward angled drop lever make the SBE 3 quicker and easier to operate-even with gloved hands.
Cryogenic physics has revealed steel changes at the molecular level when cooled to -300? F. When a Benelli barrel is cryogenically treated, all the stresses caused by hammer forging are relieved and the surface of the bore becomes more even-grained. The result is a slicker surface offering less resistance to wads and shot charges.With smoother, more uniform surfaces, Benelli Crio(R) barrels deliver superior patterns and stay clean longer.
