January 2024, Accokeek, MD – For years, the Benelli Montefeltro has smartly served shooters of all persuasions and has done so by blending classical styling with the latest in shotgun technology. Now, Benelli presents the newest entry in the Montefeltro lineup called the Montefeltro Sporting.

Designed for fast-shooting and smooth-swinging, the new Montefeltro Sporting is the ideal semi-auto shotgun for those looking to get into the clays shooting sports or to enjoy lively dove and upland hunting via the renowned Benelli brand.

To that end, the Montefeltro Sporting features a high-profile vent rib with a mid-bead and red bar front sight — the combination of which promotes good eye alignment down the barrel and an elevated hold to better see clays and birds. To aid in quick follow-up shots, the Montefeltro Sporting features barrel porting to reduce muzzle rise and to mitigate felt recoil. Additional upgrades include an easy-locking bolt system along with revised ergonomics. And since proper fit is essential to promoting good form and accuracy, the Montefeltro Sporting comes with a shim kit for drop and cast adjustment.

Built around the Benelli Inertia Driven system, which ensures reliable cycling of the lightest to the heaviest field loads and improves balance compared to standard gas-operated systems, the Montefeltro Sporting is offered in 12- and 20-gauge 2 ¾- and 3-inch chambers with 30-inch and 28-inch barrel lengths, respectively. IC, M, and F extended Crio® chokes are included.

With its refined engineering, enhanced ergonomics, and classic appearance courtesy of A-grade satin walnut furniture and gloss blued barrel with matching gloss black anodized receiver, the Montefeltro Sporting is the perfect on-ramp for both new and veteran shooters looking to experience the Benelli difference.
