Benelli SBE 3 12 Ga 3 1/2″ 28″ Black
Benelli redesigned their venerable Super Black Eagle platform and created the new Benelli 10316 Super Black Eagle 3 28 Inch 12 Gauge Shotgun in Black Synthetic. Prepare to dominate the skies! Launched in 1991 the Super Black Eagle quickly reset reliability expectations for semi-auto shotguns. Today in 2017 with the third generation of the SBE this legendary reliability has been carried forward and combined with modern technology and improved ergonomics.
With carefully considered insights from their 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.
Combtech & Comfort Tech 3:
Comfort Tech 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.
A beveled loading port redesigned carrier and a new two-piece carrier latch have all been incorporated into the new SBE 3 to make loading the magazine effortless.
The hallmark of Benelli strength and reliability Benelli’s 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 3½” magnums. From a cleanliness and speed perspective gas systems simply cannot compete—whereas Inertia-Driven Benelli shotguns are known to fire 500000+ rounds and still function without flaw.
Oversized Bolt Handle & Safety:
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.
