Benelli SBE 3/Ethos with BE.S.T.

Benelli SBE 3/Ethos with BE.S.T.

Living or hunting waterfowl in wet, humid environs or in saltwater coastal areas will often push rust prevention to the limits. Well, no more with the new and innovative Benelli surface treatment, BE.S.T. It is a hybrid physical vapor deposition and plasma enhanced deposition technology that they have applied to the metal components of their SBE 3 and Ethos shotguns. The coating provides the best corrosion and abrasion resistance on the market. Benelli, in fact, provides a 25-year warranty from the date of purchase on all BE.S.T. parts. The diamond-like carbon particles, when applied using nanotechnology, provides an exceptionally hard surface that is hard to scratch and won’t ever rust or corrode. On the SBE 3, these include barrel, extended choke, bolt, bolt handle, stud, trigger, trigger pin, safety and barrel extension. The Ethos has a treated barrel, bolt, bolt handle, trigger, trigger pin and safety. The BE.S.T. coating also significantly reduces the amount of oil and maintenance required.

MSRP: SBE3/Ethos $2,910 CAD
