Benelli USA offers waterfowlers exciting options for 2022 by introducing several new models in the company's premiere semi-auto shotgun line. This year, the Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 models includes new Cerakote and camo combinations for their 28-inch barrel shotguns with 12- and 20-gauge 3-inch chambers.
The Super Black Eagle 3 is recognized by serious waterfowlers as the world's finest, most reliable semi-auto shotgun available. Now, the SBE 3 offers two new Cerakote color options that deliver both concealment and durability.
For hunting flooded timber, the new Tungsten/GORE OPTIFADE Waterfowl Timber combination blends the muted hue of the barrel and receiver's Tungsten Cerakote with GORE OPTIFADE Waterfowl Timber camo on the stock and forend. When the action turns to grassy swamps, the Patriot Brown Cerakote and GORE OPTIFADE Marsh pattern are the perfect combinations. Overall, this dual-color treatment provides hunters with a firearm that elevates the barrel and receiver's clean lines and metal finish while expertly complementing the camouflage furniture.
Benelli's Super Black Eagle 3 is the latest iteration of the lauded SBE series introduced over 30 years ago. The SBE 3 continues to lead the market due to its technologically advanced engineering, excellent ergonomics, and innovative features. The proven Inertia Driven System, recoil-absorbing Comfort Tech 3 stock, drop and cast shim kit, shock-absorbing Comb-Tech cheek pad, Crio-treated barrels, and chokes are what set the SBE 3 apart from the competition. More importantly, the SBE 3 is the preferred choice of discerning waterfowlers for the most significant reason of all—unflinching, reliable performance in the most demanding hunting conditions on Earth.
