Benelli Introduces the Montefeltro Ultra Light Shotgun

Accokeek, MD – Nothing compares to a crisp, bluebird autumn day when the birds are plentiful, the dogs are on, and there is always “one more” spot to check just over the horizon. It is days like this for which Benelli’s engineers developed the all-new Montefeltro Ultra Light.

With its shortened barrel — 26-inch for the 12-gauge model and 24-inch for the 20-gauge model — combined with a reduced-length magazine tube and featherweight carbon-fiber stepped rib, the Montefeltro Ultra Light boasts a comfortable 6.3 and 5.3 lbs. for the 12- and 20-gauge versions, respectively. That reduced weight and shorter length translates to effortless shouldering and faster swings on quick-moving birds. Should higher round capacity beyond the standard 4+1 be required, the Montefeltro Ultra Light’s open mag tube can easily be modified with an optional extension.

Kansas City, KS – CZ has upgraded its 1012 inertia-operated shotgun with features that deliver ultimate reliability and performance. Sometimes the best wingshooting happens in foul weather, and hunters need a shotgun that’s unfailing shot after shot.
