ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 24, 2019) – Benelli takes the best features of the Standard Ultralight and Montefeltro Silver shotguns and combined them to create the light, quick-handling Montefeltro Silver Featherweight. Art and function merge in this masterpiece shotgun made for discerning hunters.
Available in 12 and 20 gauge models, the Montefeltro Silver Featherweight gives all the functional advantages of a semi-auto in a shotgun that’s easy to carry all day. Slim and balanced, this gun features a distinctive single-piece, nickel-plated alloy receiver with scroll engravings and gold embellishments. The receiver beautifully complements the walnut satin finish stock and forend, both treated with WeatherCoat for additional durability. The 26-inch (12 gauge) and 24-inch (20 gauge) blued barrels are tipped with a red-bar front sight.
Along with the elegant styling, the Featherweight performs like no other with a shortened forend and magazine and carbon-fiber rib to reduce weight and provide a quick swing to drop fast-flushing birds. The Featherweight also delivers the ultimate in reliability with the Inertia Driven operating system, which provides years of consistent cycling with no adjustments needed.
Weighing just 6.2 pounds (12 gauge) and 5.3 pounds (20 gauge), the Featherweight has been designed to be the ultimate upland shotgun by blending performance, durability and style in a single package. The shotgun comes standard with five extended Crio chokes (C, IC, M, IM, F), choke wrench and a shim kit to adjust drop and cast.
