The receiver of the Pro Series L is shaped similarly to the Remington 870 family of shotguns and is made of aluminum to help keep the overall weight down to 6 lbs., 4 ozs., unloaded. The barrel is 18.5" long, giving an overall length of 39”. Chambered for 12 gauge, the Pro Series L is compatible with 2 ¾" and 3" shells.

The barrel is also compatible with the Benelli Mobil style of choke tubes, and a set is included with each gun. The combination of shorter barrel length and aluminum receiver results in a shotgun that, while robust, isn’t overly heavy or slow to point. The wood stock and hand guard both feature laser stippled grips, which offer nice purchase for bare hands or gloves.The medium-sized loop provides enough room for most hand sizes to fit easily and work the action.
