Details & Specs
The perfect balance of art and technology.

The Ethos is an elegant semi-automatic shotgun that represents the culmination of Benelli’s latest innovations, refinements and design superiority, all centered around the core: Inertia Driven® technology. With premium materials and workmanship and the reliability to cycle anything—from 2 3/4” target loads to heavy 3” waterfowl and turkey loads—it’s a blue-ribbon performer in the sage or at the range.

The Inertia Driven system: often imitated, never duplicated.

Benelli’s Inertia Driven operating system incorporates total efficiency with complete reliability. With only three main components—the bolt body, inertia spring, and rotating bolt head—it’s stronger, faster, and never needs to be adjusted to cycle different loads. Gas, smoke, and burnt powder stay in the barrel, where they belong, rather than being channeled into the mechanism. And with no springs, action bar linkage, or gas cylinder under the forend, Benelli’s Inertia Driven shotguns balance like a fine game gun should.

Product Features
Progressive Comfort: a breakthrough in recoil reduction.

The Progressive Comfort® recoil reduction system incorporates three sets of patented interlocking flexible "fingers" that absorb recoil at different stages dependent on the strength of the shotshell’s load. These 3 sets of fingers each have a different elasticity, and the load used determines which sets of fingers are utilized for maximum recoil reduction. The first set of fingers is very flexible for light loads, the second set a bit stiffer for field loads, and the third set is optimized for heavy magnum loads.

Product Features
CRIO® technology delivers a smoother, more accurate barrel.

Benelli utilizes cryogenic technology to freeze their barrels and chokes at -300°F. Such extreme temperatures actually change the metal at a molecular level, relieving stresses caused by the hammer-forging process and creating a smoother and more uniform surface. CRIO barrels move more consistently shot-to-shot, delivering denser patterns with 13.2% more pellets on target. In addition to more consistent firing performance, cryogenically-treated bore surface offers less resistance to the wad and shot charge—keeping the barrel cleaner, longer.
