Benelli Introduces SBE 3 Compact Series Shotguns: First Look – Firearms News


Since its introduction over 30 years ago, the Benelli Super Black Eagle has set the standard for what an unfailing semi-auto hunting shotgun should be. For 2024, Benelli expands the third generation SBE series with the SBE 3 Compact. Boasting the same mechanical features and design that has made the SBE 3 the perennial leader in hunting shotguns, the new SBE 3 Compact models present a shotgun that is shorter and lighter for improved handling, better fit, and a more comfortable shooting experience for shooting and hunting enthusiasts with a shorter length of pull.

To begin, the SBE 3 Compact — boasting a 26-inch barrel — has an overall length of 46 ¼ inches. That is 3 ¼ inches and 1 ¼ inches shorter than the standard SBE 3 28- and 26-inch barrel models, respectively. This shorter overall length comes courtesy of a reduced-length buttstock, which shortens the length-of-pull to 13 ⅛ inches. Weight is also decreased with the SBE 3 Compact thanks to the more compact stock and 26-inch maximum barrel length.

The SBE 3 Compact shotguns are available in 12- (6.7 lbs.), 20- (5.7 lbs.), and 28-gauge (5.4 lbs.), and chambered for 2 ¾- and 3-inch shotshells. All models come with a black synthetic stock and standard features that include Benelli’s Inertia Driven system, extended (IC, M) and flush (C, IM, F) Crio® chokes, Crio®-treated barrels, Comfort Tech 3 recoil pads, Combtech pads, drop and cast shim kit, and a custom-fitted hard case. MSRP for all models is $1949.
