Benelli Introduces the Montefeltro Ultra Light Shotgun

Media Contact: Kim Cahalan, [email protected] | January 25, 2024

January 2024, Accokeek, MD – Nothing compares to a crisp, bluebird autumn day when the birds are plentiful, the dogs are on, and there is always “one more” spot to check just over the horizon. It is days like this for which Benelli’s engineers developed the all-new Montefeltro Ultra Light.

Montefeltro Ultra Light 12ga Shotgun

With its shortened barrel — 26-inch for the 12-gauge model and 24-inch for the 20-gauge model — combined with a reduced-length magazine tube and featherweight carbon-fiber stepped rib, the Montefeltro Ultra Light boasts a comfortable 6.3 and 5.3 lbs. for the 12- and 20-gauge versions, respectively. That reduced weight and shorter length translates to effortless shouldering and faster swings on quick-moving birds. Should higher round capacity beyond the standard 4+1 be required, the Montefeltro Ultra Light’s open mag tube can easily be modified with an optional extension.

As with all shotguns in the Montefeltro line, the Montefeltro Ultra Light features Benelli’s Inertia Driven system to deliver clean operation and reliable cycling from the lightest to the heaviest field loads.

AA-grade walnut with an exquisite satin finish comprises the sculpted, classically styled stock and forend bridged by a gloss black anodized receiver. This is complemented by a Crio®-treated gloss blued barrel. Benelli’s WeatherCoat™ finish on the stock and receiver ensures the Montefeltro Ultra Light will hold up to any adventure and cut a fine figure in the field or on the range for years to come.
