The Benelli Vinci fits comfortably in the role of revolutionary in terms of its construction, design and manufacture.
The magazine port has no sharp edges along with scalloped recesses to help guide the shell into the chamber.
There are four retaining lugs on the hanger’s bottom that lock into an aluminum chassis mounted to the fore-end assembly.
The bolt release lever is in a recess in the front of the trigger guard and is easily depressed, even with heavy gloves.
Stock shims can be used to lengthen the buttstock to fit the user.
The QuadraFit Buttstock Module features an improved ComforTech Plus recoil reduction system.
There are white dots strategically placed on the buttstock, the receiver and the fore-end to ease disassembly and assembly.
The coil recoil spring and its guide rod are positioned at 12 o’clock and are completely self-contained with the cylindrical receiver. There is no tail on the carrier that must compress a spring in the butt.
The Vinci has a two-lug, polished steel bolt head with a hook extractor on the right side.
The trigger has wings similar to a M1911 preventing gloves or other items from lodging between the trigger and the back of the trigger guard.
The magazine tube is aluminum and snaps into place at the front of the fore-end.
The Vinci breaks down easily for a semi-auto shotgun into a few main parts.
