SBE 3 – 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.
All the amazing attributes that made the Super Black Eagle 3 America’s favorite 31/2-inch chamber shotgun are now also available for southpaws in a firearm specifically engineered for those who shoulder firearms on the left side. Choose either a Realtree® Max-5™ camo pattern or a black synthetic stock.
- 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.
- Easy-Loading System: 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.
- Inertia-Drive System: The hallmark of Benelli strength and reliability the 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.
