The Benelli M4 Cerakote is the same M4 tactical shotgun armed forces and police agencies across the country have employed for years, but with a new coat of armor. The Cerakote coating breathes new life into this firearm, adding more corrosion, scratch and wear resistance to the weapon, up to 50 times more than other coatings. Underneath, you’ll still find the classic M4 design, with its Auto Regulating Gas Operated (ARGO) system and flexibility in attachments and ammunition. MSRP $2,399.
The Best Gets Better
Benelli’s revolutionary Vinci just got supersized. The Super Vinci is designed to handle 3½-inch Magnum loads. At the heart of the Super Vinci is the In-Line Inertia Driven system, designed to chamber reliably light 2¾-inch loads up through the most powerful 3½-inch Magnums. Combine the In-Line Inertia Driven action with superior balance, light weight, reduced recoil and minimal muzzle climb and the shooter experiences the real timeline of performance speed where the Super Vinci has no equal. MSRP $1,699.
Benelli’s Ultra Light set the shooting world on its ear, with many labeling it as the greatest semi-auto ever produced for upland hunting. With success such as that, it’s no surprise Benelli is looking to maintain its domination with the introduction of the Ultra Light in a 28-gauge model. The Ultra Light 28 weighs a paltry 5 pounds, comes standard with choke tubes and, like its larger-gauge companions, features a magazine tube that has been limited to two rounds. Also as a weight-saver, the Ultra Light 28 features a lightweight carbon fiber rib atop the 26-inch barrel. The Ultra Light’s walnut stock is protected by Benelli’s premium Weathercoat finish. MSRP $1,800.
The ultra-reliable ARGO system incorporated into the Benelli MR1 provides reliability for the U.S. military and makes the MR1 the best home-defense rifle available. Built to the same tough military specifications and embodying the solid reliability that the U.S. Marines rely upon, the MR1 has no equal among home-defense weapons. It features a stainless-steel, self-cleaning piston that operates directly against the rotating bolt, thereby eliminating the need for complex linkages. The piston-driven system incorporates a gas port located just forward of the chamber, where the gases are hotter and cleaner, resulting in less fouling and more reliable cycling.
