New Benelli Ethos Line of Shotguns

benelli ethos

A new line of recoil-operated shotguns will be introduced by Benelli in 2014.  The new line, called Ethos, uses the company’s Inertia Driven System and should be compatible with a wide variety of 12 gauge loads:  from light 7/8 oz to heavy 3″ magnums.

Among the features of the Ethos:

  • interchangeable carbon fiber ribs
  • interchangeable fiber optic sights in various colors
  • walnut stocks
  • enlarged bolt release
  • improved cartridge drop lever
  • beveled loading port

MSRP will run from $1,999 to $2,199.  We will try to get more information and photos of these new shotguns at the 2014 SHOT Show.

    There’s more info on these on Benelli’s European site – -, note the change of name – I’m sure there’ll be some other “little differences” for the US market too, but the larger picture should still be informative. The gun was launched at IWA 2013 but AFAIK has not yet made it into dealer’s inventories.
