Benelli Super Black Eagle II Performance Shop Waterfowl Edition
ACCOKEEK, MD (November 9, 2011) - Benelli is pleased to announce the release of a special new shotgun, custom-tuned for the hard-core waterfowler-the Benelli Super Black Eagle II (SBE II) Performance Shop Waterfowl Edition. The SBE II is already recognized as the greatest semi-automatic shotgun ever made. Now, with Benelli's Performance Shop enhancements the ultimate waterfowl gun just got better.

This finely crafted duck & goose gun incorporates features that provide excellent handling characteristics and enhanced performance. It begins with the Benelli ultra-reliable Inertia Driven® operating system, which has been honed and polished. The trigger group has been worked to provide a crisper let off for better control over the timing of your shot.

The Waterfowl Edition comes with a set of Rob Roberts Custom Triple Threat™ chokes. They provide shooters with the ultimate selection of choke tubes that apply specifically to waterfowl hunting at short-, medium- and long-range distances. One of the most impressive features, confirmed through scientific study, includes a computerized pattern analysis machine. Each individual gun is test-fired using Federal Premium's Black Cloud® ammunition to ensure that it produces consistent and even patterns for the most efficient knock-down power possible.

A large bolt-cocking handle, designed for run-and-gun style shooting, affords a positive purchase whenever engaging the bolt. This combined with a longer and wider bolt release lever, makes the Waterfowl Edition easier to manipulate even when wearing bulky, cold-weather gloves.

The Waterfowl Edition's Crio® barrel features a lengthened and polished forcing cone that not only provides consistent, uniform patterns, but also lessens recoil. This coupled with Benelli's ComforTech® stock greatly reduces the felt recoil of heavy 3.5" magnum shells. Bagging a limit of ducks or geese just got a little easier with the ultimate waterfowl gun-Benelli's SBE II Performance Shop Waterfowl Edition.

Each Waterfowl Edition's barrel is fitted with a HI VIZ Comp front sight with a variety of colored fiber optic inserts for amazingly fast target acquisition especially in low-light conditions. The Waterfowl Edition utilizes a paracord design survival sling, which frees up your hands for setting decoys or carrying gear. In an emergency situation the survival sling provides over 50 feet of 550-pound paracord within seconds.

"No other gunmaker has gone to these lengths to give waterfowlers a gun that combines all these features plus the extra effort of testing ammunition and choke patterns," said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli's VP of Marketing & Communications. "That guarantees that the Performance Shop Waterfowl Edition is the finest duck and goose-killing shotgun on the market."
