The new Benelli 20-Gauge Super Black Eagle 3 in Realtree MAX-5 Camo offers all-weather performance and reliability in a true 20-gauge platform. Chambered to accept up to 3-inch shells, this shotgun is light and effective, weighing in at just 5.8 pounds.
SBE3 Technologies and Features
Combtech & Comfort Tech 3
Comfort Tech™ splits the stock diagonally and utilizes shock-absorbing chevrons, essentially turning the entire stock into a recoil pad. Now 13 years old, this chevron system is still the most efficient design possible, and was the basis for the SBE3 stock. The chevron size and location has been optimized on Comfort Tech 3. In addition, the new Combtech greatly reduces facial impact and vibrations.
Benelli’s 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-inch magnums. Gas symptoms simply can’t compete from a cleanliness and speed perspective.
Oversized Bolt Handle & Safety
The SBE3 is quicker and easier to operate thanks to a larger bolt release and safety, along with an outward-angled drop lever.
Benelli’s Crio System Technology
A cryogenically treated Benelli barrel relieves all the stress caused by hammer forging and the bore surface becomes more even-grained, resulting in a slicker surface with less resistance to wads and shot charges. A smoother, more uniform surfaces mean Benelli Crio® barrels deliver superior patterns and stay clean longer.
Easy Locking Bolt System
The SBE3’s patented locking mechanism is designed to work flawlessly with all shotgun loads—from light clay loads to the ultimate goose-busters.
Easy Loading System
The new SBE3 boasts effortless loading thanks to a beveled loading port, redesigned carrier and a new two-piece carrier latch.
During loading, only the front section of the Easy Loading System’s two-piece carrier latch actually moves so shells slide up easily with minimal tension or possibility of jamming.
Grooves in the loading port guide shells in so you don’t have to take your eyes off incoming birds. The new, beveled loading port also features a wider design to help funnel shells toward the magazine, which is a huge help for gloved hunters.
