    Benelli Crio chokes sit flush with the muzzle and come in the following constrictions: C, IC, M, IM and F. Wrench included.

  • Bolt-Lock Lever

    The bolt-lock lever performs 3 important functions: 1) It locks the bolt back on an empty chamber. 2) It releases a shell from the magazine. 3) It indicates a cocked hammer, making it obvious by both sight and feel. The bolt-lock lever is conveniently located on the front of the trigger guard.

    Chamber pressure is contained by the massive, 2-lug rotary locking head, which locks into the steel barrel extension.

  • Ergonomic Trigger Guard and Safety

    The trigger guard and safety are ergonomically designed, blending style and function.

  • Removable Trigger Assembly

    Easily remove the trigger assembly as a unit by driving out just one pin.
