Benelli Factory Tour – Quality Assurance

Benelli manufactures most of their firearm components at their factory, but sources some others from outside companies. As an example, all Benelli rifle and shotgun barrels are made by Beretta. Wood stocks come from a variety of sources, as do some polymer parts. Mauro of Benelli explains to us how they make sure that every part is made to their specifications, and what it means to be a “Benelli Certified Supplier.”

    Hi, I was wondering if you knew to whom I could contact about arranging a Benelli Factory tour for my husband and son when we are in Italy next April.

    They are a big fan of Benelli (possess a few of their shotguns) and it would be a great break from all the museums I plan to drag them to 🙂

    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!
