Benelli vs. Beretta … ?

    Benelli and Beretta seem to be competing with each other to produce the lightest shotgun autoloading shotgun. Earlier this year Benelli introduced the Vinci, which they claimed was one of the lighest autoloading shotguns available. Beretta recently responded with the Beretta Xplor, which is even lighter than the Vinci.

    Benelli now claim they have designed the lightest autoloader in the world and will unveil it at SHOT Show.

    This competition would make sense if they were separate companies but since 2000 Benelli has been owned by Beretta.
