The Benelli Ethos—American Rifleman's 2015 Golden Bullseye winner for Shotgun of the Year—is comprised of some of Benelli's most successful innovations, both old and new. The shotgun is centered around the company's famous Inertia Driven operating system. The carrier has been redesigned, making shells easier to load, and an enlarged bolt release makes for simpler and faster operation. The cartridge drop lever has been likewise changed, making the shotgun easier to handle and operate-even for a shooter in gloves. A newly patented Easy Locking System in the bolt body is designed to ensure that the rotating bold head locks up, and the Ethos' system is designed to cycle even the lightest of shotgun loads-right on down to 7/8 ozs. And all that's just scratching the surface of this potential game-changer.
