Benelli Vinci Shotgun

The shotgun that was the subject of a lot of hype, rumor, and a pretty cool marketing campaign is finally here.  Say hello to the Benelli “Vinci”, the “next generation” of hunting shotguns:

The new Benelli Vinci marks a revolution in hunting shotguns. Benelli presents the fastest-shooting, softest-kicking, most reliable lightweight 12-gauge shotgun in the world. The innovative design of this semi auto shotgun raises the standard in firearms technology. Driven by a passion for efficiency and simplicity, Benelli engineers have advanced the cutting edge. The superbly balanced Vinci embodies a new way of looking at shotgun design. The revolutionary new In-Line Inertia Driven operating system, with superior reliability and lightning fast speed, is the simplest semi-auto shotgun operating system ever devised.

The new Vinci is available with either a 26 inch or a 28 inch barrel, in one of three finishes (realtree camo and tactical black are shown above). MSRP on the Vinci is around $1200-1300. Now if they’d only make a version with an 18 inch barrel and an extended magazine, I’d be really interested. However, if you’re looking for a soft recoiling 12 gauge shotgun for game, you probably won’t go wrong with the new Vinci, from Benelli.

Thanks to Steve at The Firearm Blog for the heads up.

  1. Looking at their website, it looks like the receiver is integrated into the barrel. At first glance this looks like barrel replacement is a no go .

  2. Benelli always makes a great product, but this one is overly ugly. I dunno if they’re gonna sell many of ’em.
