The Black Eagle, younger brother of the SBE 3, is born! Although not maintaining the same characteristics in terms of “extreme” performances, it acquires versatility and superior dynamic characteristics.
Not a simple smaller version of the SBE 3, of which it traces the formal characters, but a real and polyvalent shotgun, built to meet the dreams and needs of hunters.
The Black Eagle 12/76 is a shotgun with an American “look” but a European “soul”, therefore destined to fire many 12/70s, including those with low weight of lead at quite high speed.
The Black Eagle is light and easy to handle, with weight and mass distribution chosen to ensure the best combination of dynamic qualities and containment of shot reactions, thanks to the recoil and muzzle climb containment systems, which enhance the hunter’s performance. Among these we find the ComfortTech 3 stock, with 365 mm LOP as standard, which can vary from a minimum of 355 mm to a maximum of 375 mm, with the possibility of changing the drop and cast to meet all the hunter’s shooting needs, while the Combtech interchangeable combs reduce shock and vibrations to the face at the moment of discharge.
Versatile in any hunting situation, Black Eagle 20/76 is available in the distinctive matte black colourway. Hunters seeking a different colourway can opt for the Camo MAX 5 and Camo Optifade Marsh with patterns matching the hunting environment on all external surfaces, for total concealment.
Combtech and Comfort Tech 3 - Comfort Tech™ was the first of its kind. By splitting the stock diagonally and utilizing shock-absorbing chevrons, the entire stock was essentially turned into a recoil pad. This chevron system, is still the most efficient design possible, and was the basis for the SBE 3 stock. The chevron size and location has been optimized on Comfort Tech 3. Furthermore, Benelli engineers have developed a new cheek comb pad, Combtech, which greatly reduces facial impact and vibrations.
Intertia-driven system - the Benelli strength and reliability. The clean-burning Inertia Driven System never requires adjusting, cycles consistently in conditions that border on the unfair and easily handles everything. From a cleanliness and speed perspective, gas systems simply cannot compete. Inertia-Driven Benelli shotguns are known to fire 500,000+ rounds and still function without flaw.
