Benelli Ultra Light

Ultra Light

Weighing less than 6 pounds, Benelli's Ultra Light shotguns are the lightest semi-automatic 12-and 20- gauge shotguns in production. Sporting featherweight alloy receivers and shortened magazine tubes, these guns also feature a unique raised target rib made from the same super-light, super-strong carbon fiber employed in Formula I race cars.

New this year is the Benelli Ultra Light 28-gauge shotgun, which is literally the lightest shotgun in the world, weighing in at just 5 pounds. The Ultra Light 28-gauge incorporates all the same features that lightened up its 12- and 20-gauge big brothers. Benelli's Ultra Light shotguns are an uplander shooter's dream in any gauge.

Carbon Fiber Finish
A lightweight raised target rib is made from the same super-light, super-strong carbon fiber employed in Formula 1 race cars. The carbon fiber rib is complemented by a matching carbon fiber grip cap.

Ultra Light Forend
The Ultra Light’s magazine tube and forend are considerably shorter than the Montefeltro's. This new design makes the Ultra Light incredibly light on those long hunts.

Optional Extended Special-Purpose Chokes
Three special purpose-standard choke tubes: (1) Turkey-choke specially designed to throw tight, uniform patterns with today's modern turkey loads, (2) Pass-choke for long-range waterfowl pass shooting and (3) Decoys-choke for waterfowl.

Inertia Driven System
Benelli has harnessed this basic law of physics in the Inertia Driven system to operate the world's fastest, simplest and most reliable semi-automatic shotguns. It's not boasting, it's the law—The Law of Inertia.
