Benelli Legacy “28”

Benelli Legacy 28
Benelli Legacy

Sleek. Beautiful. Italian. She’s the lightest auto-loading shotgun in the World. Weighing in at 5 pounds, Benelli proudly introduces the newest member of its distinguished Legacy family––the Legacy 28. For the first time in Benelli history, the fast-firing, ultra-reliable Inertia Driven® system that drives Benelli semi-auto shotguns now fitted to the highly efficient 28-gauge.

The Legacy 28 blends style and performance in a way that every sportsman will appreciate. A highly polished blued upper receiver gives the Legacy eye-catching originality and contrasts the sculptured lower receiver, which features classic and detailed game scene engravings. Designed for target shooters and hunters alike, the Legacy 28’s satin walnut stock sports a WeatherCoat™ finish, complimenting the wood’s beautiful grain pattern making it virtually impervious to the elements. To further dampen the light recoil, the 28-gauge features an “AirCell” recoil pad, providing maximum comfort and effective shock absorption.

The Legacy 28 is available with either a 24- or 26-inch Crio™ barrel that’s topped with a super-light, carbon fiber vent rib, red-bar front sight, mid-bead and utilizes Benelli’s Crio™ choke tubes. Unique to all other 28-gauge semi-autos, the Legacy 28 is trimmed down in every respect. The lightweight receiver is reduced in scale and combined with the slim barrel and sleek fore-end, this is a gun that points and handles like a dream.
