Articles on Benelli Shotguns
Benelli’s inertia drive system is noted for its simplicity since there are only three primary parts–the bolt body, rotating bolt head and inertia spring. It’s also noted for its speed–no shotgun action is faster–its cleanliness–it’s not tapping off gas and accumulating carbon–and for its versatility, since it can handle without adjustment everything from 2 3/4″ field loads to 3 1/2″ Magnums. It also weighs little, making the Benelli–and now Franchi and Stoeger–some of the lightest, most streamlined and best balanced semiauto shotguns in the world.
