ETHOS - BE.S.T. Shotguns

After 10 years of research and testing, Benelli solved the number one issue with waterfowl shotguns – rust and corrosion. The revolutionary Benelli Surface Treatment (BE.S.T.) – a new proprietary finishing technology – prevents rust, corrosion and abrasions. Available on select ETHOS models. 

Multi-Layered Surface

Diamond-like carbon particles are used to create a multi-layered surface coating that protects against the elements and abrasions.

Tested Against the Elements

Impenetrable Armor

Creating a barrier that protects against rust and corrosion created by moisture - even saltwater.
