Quick-handling, fast-cycling, and light-recoiling, the Benelli® Super Sport Shotgun is built to dominate the sporting clays course. Its lightweight aluminum body, sleek carbon fiber stock, and AirTouch® checkering make it easy to handle and quick to swing on target. Its ComforTech® recoil system, thick gel buttpad, and ported barrel reduce felt recoil and control muzzle climb, keeping you on target for that critical second shot. It’s a winning combination, and it’s all powered by Benelli’s legendary Inertia Driven® operation.
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 race gun should.
Historically, if you wanted less recoil, you had to make the shot charge lighter or the gun heavier. The ComforTech system revolutionized firearms technology by taming recoil without adding weight to the gun. By splitting the stock diagonally and integrating 22 shock-absorbing chevrons, Benelli created a unique stock body that flexes to absorb recoil on its own. The remaining recoil forces are channeled through a soft gel comb insert and thick gel recoil pad, saving your cheek and shoulder from the pounding punishment of full-power buck.
Benelli utilizes cryogenic technology to freeze 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. The hammer-forging process creates stress in the barrel steel, causing it to expand or contract unpredictably and negatively affecting accuracy. By relieving these stresses, 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.
