First Look: Benelli ETHOS Shotgun

The new Benelli ETHOS shotgun combines traditional Benelli craftsmanship with a whole lineup of new advanced features.

Initially available in a 12-gauge, 3-inch magnum version, the semi-auto ETHOS will be available with a matte-black or nickel-plated engraved receiver. The receiver also includes a large ejection port and houses a new mechanical rotating bolt mechanism that enables reliable cycling and automatic return to battery. 

It's progressive-control recoil system has been in long-term development with Benelli, which uses plastic inserts embedded in the stock that overlap each other to self-adjust for loads of varying size and weight. The stock also includes a padded buttplate and cheek piece for additional recoil reduction and comfort.

The carbon fiber rib atop the ETHOS' barrel decreases weight, while also dissipating heat. Optional ribs come in several sizes to fit shooters of varying sizes and shooting objectives. An interchangeable fiber optic front bead comes with three different-colored replacement rods. 


The new Benelli ETHOS is available in matte-black finish for $1,999, and engraved nickel-plated for $2199.
