The slim forearm featuring dimpled AirTouch checkering provided a good, firm hold on the shotgun even in bad weather conditions.
While slightly slower than the Winchester, the action of the Benelli was flawless in its performance and provided easy and quick access to the chamber.
Although the space-age look took some adjustment for some of our more traditional test team members, the ComforTech stock and Technogel recoil pad provided good recoil reduction.
The only downside to the Benelli, some of our test group experienced "thumb bite" when loading shells into the magazine. Utilizing a rotating bolt and inertial operation system, the Benelli requires little effort for assembly and disassembly.
