In 2005 Benelli introduced the aptly named Cordoba, an inertia-recoil-operated, semi-automatic 12-gauge shotgun with many recoil-mitigating features designed specifically for high-volume shoots such as those found in South America. Since its inception, the Cordoba has been so well received that this year a smaller, even softer-shooting companion in 20 gauge was catalogued.
Benelli USA now offers National Firearms Act (NFA) shotguns with 14" barrels, that can be purchased through a Benelli USA authorized Class III Commercial dealer.
Multi-gun competition demands the highest standards of reliable operation in guns performing under the pressures of action shooting and the stresses of a timed event. Benelli's M2 has passed the test of time, establishing a sterling reputation as the shotgun of choice for serious 3-gun competitors.
