"Reputations are not easily granted; they must be earned." The Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 (SBE) line of semi-automatic shotguns has been an American favorite for years, with a well-earned reputation for power and reliability. That said, not all Black Eagles are black ... in fact, Benelli has just introduced a new version clad entirely in Realtree's cutting-edge Max-7 camouflage pattern. 

Realtree Max-7 is a purpose-designed camo that's just for waterfowlers. The pattern simply disappears into any waterfowl environment, fooling sharp-eyed ducks and geese. But for the Benelli SBE 3 in Realtree, beauty is more than skin-deep. 

The SBE 3 is famous for its reliability, shrugging off weather conditions that would make a Labrador retriever shiver. With exceptional ergonomics, flawless performance and unwavering shot-to-shot reliability, the SBE 3 boasts an array of impressive features. Customers already love Benelli's renowned ComfortTech 3 System, Crio-treated barrels and choke tubes. The enlarged bolt release and handle, combined with improved grip-to-trigger geometry, enhance both ergonomics and functionality.

Of course, the most famous aspect of the SBE is Benelli's Inertia Driven System, which ensures consistent cycling regardless of the load, making it the cleanest semi-automatic system in the industry. These models are offered in 12-, 20-, and 28-gage chambering options in barrel lengths of 26 and 28". MSRP $1,999 - $2,199;
