#SundayGunday: Benelli Super Black Eagle 3

by
posted on July 1, 2018

While we know you’re probably thinking more about beach towels than duck decoys, September will be here soon enough and early goose and dove seasons right along with it. With that in mind, we want to showcase a shotgun with bird hunting in its blood: the Benelli Super Black Eagle 3. Still a SBE at heart, the SBE 3 wears Benelli’s new Comfort Tech 3 stock, reducing felt recoil to an almost pleasurable level. It’s also got a host of upgrades waterfowl hunters will appreciate including an enlarged bolt handle, release, trigger guard and loading port. And perhaps the most important upgrade, the SBE 3 sports a click-eliminating ball detent mechanism in the bolt body that locks the bolt into battery. The dreaded “click” is a thing of the past, and waterfowl hunters should be excited about the future. Learn more about it in this exclusive video, hosted by Managing Editor Jon Draper. MSRP: $1,899-1,999; benelliusa.com.
