First Look: 20-Gauge Benelli SBE 3 in Realtree Max-5
Benelli has debuted a new model of its 20-gauge Super Black Eagle (SBE) 3, decked out in Realtree Max-5 camouflage. Chambered to accept up to 3-inch shells, this shotgun is light and maneuverable, weighing in at just 5.8 pounds.
A Comfort Tech 3 design splits the stock on a diagonal, and utilizes shock-absorbing chevrons, essentially turning the entire stock into a recoil pad. This classic SBE design pairs with a Combtech comb to reduce facial impact and vibrations.
Inside, an inertia-driven system requires no adjustment, yet will cycle everything from light field loads to magnum rounds. An oversize bolt handle and safety make the gun easier to operate through cold-weather gloves, as does an outward-angled drop lever. Finally, Realtree Max-5 camo coats both the stock and the barrel, keeping thing concealed, and protected.
