A backbone product in Benelli’s upland and clay-target shotgun line, the Montefeltro has, for years, been a favorite of discerning shotgun aficionados, and for 2023, the classically styled shotgun will be available in eight different configurations, further broadening the gun’s versatility in a growing market of semi-automatic shotguns. Beyond the line’s available styling, the new Montefeltro picks up the latest Benelli technologies so that today’s hunters, wingshooters and clay-target shooters can dominate the field without stretching the budget too thin.
The 2023 Benelli Montefeltro will come upgraded with the latest Inertia-Driven (ID) operating system, a well-respected design that is crafted for the best possible performance and notably reliable. It also will include a redesigned bolt handle to improve manipulation, even with gloved hands. A two-piece shell latch is included that makes for easier loading. Benelli improved the ergonomics throughout, too. A handsome walnut stock with checkering panels and a satin finish is included and pairs well with the deep-blue finish.
The 2023 Montefeltro is offered in either 12- and 20-ga. chamberings with available barrel lengths spanning 24”, 26” and 28” with ventilated sighting ribs. Compact models are also available. All Montefeltro models come with a Micro Cell recoil pad, shim kit for drop and cast changes and three Crio choke tubes. MSRP is $1,499. For more information, visit Benelli.com.
