Benelli to Attend NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits

May 2024, Accokeek, MD: As the attention of NRA members and the shooting industry turn to the upcoming 153rd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, Benelli wants to let all attendees know that the company will be displaying at this year’s event and invites all to swing by booth #7502 to check out the latest offerings from America’s premiere shotgun manufacturer.

The 153rd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits will be held this year at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX May 17-19. NRA members will want to visit the Benelli booth to see the several new rifle and shotgun models ready for the summer clays action and the upcoming hunting season.

For starters, the heralded SBE 3 semi-auto shotgun line receives several extensions this year, which include 3-inch compact models in 12-, 20-, and 28-ga. Over-under fans will appreciate the new 828U Steel Field with its steel receiver for enhanced balance and recoil mitigation. Those who enjoy long days on the clays range should check out the Montefeltro Sporting— a smooth-swinging, fast-shooting semi-auto available in 12- and 20-ga.

The big news in Benelli shotguns is the Performance Shop Ethos series featuring the new Benelli Advanced Impact (A.I.) technology. With its combination of specially profiled barrel bore and A.I. Crio® choke system, the Performance Shop Ethos delivers enhanced shot column velocity and terminal energy compared to contemporary shotgun barrel designs.

Finally, hunters who pursue game in the wide-open country will cheer the new Lupo HPR bolt-action rifle. Developed for those hunters who need a rifle that can accurately reach way out there, the Lupo HPR delivers exceptional long-range performance in a platform that is light enough for an all-day grind in the backcountry.

See these and more premium Benelli firearms at the 2024 NRA Show in booth #7502.
