Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 Semi-Automatic Shotgun

The Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 Shotgun is a full redesign of the venerable Super Black Eagle platform. With carefully considered insights from Benelli pro-staff and veteran hunters, Benelli design engineers spent nearly 10 years in development with a focus on three areas of critical importance to the serious waterfowler: Improved ergonomics, intuitive, flawless functionality and an updated design, style and feel for the latest in modern waterfowling reliability that’s all about the end game: Absolute superiority in the most unforgiving conditions. All the amazing attributes that made the Super Black Eagle 3 one of America's favorite shotguns is now also available for southpaws in a firearm specifically engineered for those who shoulder firearms on the left side. 

 

The Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 Shotgun is the semi-automatic shotgun capable of shooting, in addition to all traditional hunting loads,most steel shot loads. The Super Black Eagle 3 Shotgun also contains the innovative Comfortech System, Benelli’s exclusive full comfort system ensures excellent performance in term of reducing recoil and muzzle rise and making aiming quicker than ever. Especially for the new comb that minimizes muzzle climb and vibration.

 

ComforTech was the first recoil-reduction system of its kind. By splitting the stock diagonally and utilizing shock-absorbing chevrons the entire stock was transformed into a recoil pad. The chevron size and location has been optimized on Comfort Tech 3. Further, Benelli engineers created a new cheek comb pad called Combtech, which greatly reduces facial impact and vibrations. When considering total recoil, vibrations, and impact to the face are often overlooked. Benelli realized that improvements could be made to the stock comb to reduce facial impact and developed the Combtech System. Combtech is simple but highly effective in reducing force transferred to the cheek area, resulting in a softer shooting gun that allows you to shoot better.

Browning A5 Wicked Wings Semi-Automatic Shotgun 12 Gauge

Wicked looks, wicked performance. Be it a lift kit and bigger tires on the truck, the color of paint on the house, or even a tattoo, most people like a little personalization to separate them from the rest of the pack. Why should a shotgun be any different? Now waterfowlers can choose between a pair of Browning autoloaders with custom touches to make them stand out — in a good way. Wicked Wing autoloaders feature a Cerakote Burnt Bronze camo finish on the receiver and Burnt Bronze on the barrel. The oversized bolt release makes it easier to manipulate with gloves. A fully chromed bore adds corrosion resistance and longevity for year after year of shooting performance.

These blades run ducks in circles. Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades is a camo for today's duck hunter. It is not only extremely popular, it is proven effective. Combined with the "old school" humpbacked design and modern technology of the Browning A5, you have an ultra-reliable shotgun you can and will take everywhere in your pursuit of ducks and geese.

Building on The Legend. The original Browning Auto-5 is considered to be nothing less than a legend in the hunting and shooting sports. Though today's A5 shares only the name and humpback receiver profile with John M. Browning's original autoloader, these guns build on the legacy of reliability and performance earned by their namesake.

Features

  • Inflex 2, large recoil pad
  • Fully chromed barrel bore chamber
  • Aluminum alloy receiver, Burnt Bronze Cerakote
  • Brushed nickel bolt slide finish
  • Gold plated trigger



About Browning

Browning is one of those classic, traditional companies with a long, proud history. To get to the very beginning one would have to go back to 1805, to the birth of Jonathan Browning in Tennessee. Jonathan was the father of John Moses Browning. Like many of his time he sought a life in the West, which eventually had him setting up shop as a gunmaker and gunsmith of some note in Nauvoo, Illinois and eventually brought him further West, with the Mormon pioneers to Ogden, Utah.

What Customers Are Saying

Absolutely!

I bought the A400 this spring and I just took it out this weekend to shoot some clays to break it in. We ran 75 rounds of 2 3/4" target loads, and the gun cycled perfectly. I could shoot this gun all day long! This is a smooth operating, well balanced, easy to get on target shotgun. Can't wait to get it in the blind!

CZ-USA 1012 Semi-Automatic Shotgun 12 Gauge

The latest evolution in CZ's semi-automatic shotgun line, the 1012 uses a gas-less inertia operating system. Instead of redirecting gas from the barrel to run the action, the 1012 uses a spring within the bolt to store energy during the shotgun's recoil, spending this energy a split second later to rotate and unlock the twin lugs from the barrel extension and withdraw the spent shell.

The major advantage of an inertia system is the less stringent maintenance schedule. Unlike gas guns that need periodic cleaning of the piston and magazine tube, the 1012's needs are vastly fewer. During CZ's testing, we pushed 1012s to 5,000 rounds without a drop of oil or cleaning of any sort, while experiencing zero parts breakage or malfunctions. In normal field use, the occasional cleaning and oiling should be more than enough

Additionally, the gas-less system itself is tuned to run a wider variety of shells - from light-recoiling target loads up to the smoking hot 3" magnums currently on the market.
