Benelli has supersized the Vinci with the Super Vinci, which has been designed to reliably chamber light 2¾-inch loads up through the most powerful 3½-inch Magnums because of its In-Line Inertia Driven system.

Precise instruments developed by Benelli measure and create graphs that illustrate the total recoil of the Super Vinci against its competitors. Other guns have peak recoil that's as much as 15 percent greater than the Super Vinci's. But more significantly, the total felt-recoil of the competitors' guns is as much as 22 percent more.

Like the original Vinci, the superbly balanced Super Vinci embodies all the features that make this latest Benelli semi-auto the most reliable, softest kicking, fastest shooting, lightweight 3½-inch Magnum shotgun in the world. Its unique modular design makes it the easiest shotgun in the world to assemble and disassemble for cleaning, maintenance, storage and transportation.

"We're very pleased to add the Vinci's revolutionary design concept to the Super Vinci," said Stephen McKelvain, VP Benelli USA Marketing & Communications. "This logical next step has been anticipated from the moment the original Vinci was first introduced. The Super Black Eagle was the world's original 3½-inch Magnum, and the Super Vinci is now the ultimate 3½-inch Magnum."
