    Benelli premium plus semi auto 12G

    As some of you maybe aware I was in the market for a new shot gun! I had a budget of 800 and really wanted to buy brand new and make sure it had a warranty etc. I looked about on the internet at various models and makes but as you know nothing is better than trying a few.

    Off I went to my local RFD who are a stockist of Benelli and the had the premium plus in stock. When you first pick it up you find it is a very lightweight and slim shotgun which I like, the model I looked at was the all black synthetic 30" barrel at 725 but me having a camo fetish and the fact this is for pigeon/hide work that's what I needed and was an extra 45. I asked dauntsey gun the RFD to order it on Thursday and it turned up on the Friday from GMK the stockiest. You get five chokes in total and the choke key plus a bottle of benelli gun oil and a set of sling swivels. The only annoying thing is I am trying to figure out what choke is what

    Assembling it takes a couple of seconds

    This is how it comes in its hard case.

    And this it assembled

    I shot the gun today and it was a pleasure very light and very little recoil using 32grain carts overall I am a happy chappy. Sorry if the review is a pile of crap but I am not the most articulate person in the world.

    Hello bud, glad you liked it after all the fuss you made Is it an inertia or gas semi? I know it's a benelli but don't know much about this Beretta / Benelli model.

    Same gun as the Beretta ES100 which is inertia operated and was a rebadged Benelli in the first place. Benelli's are generally inertia and Beretta's gas..

    Well ... you wouldn't get much recoil from, quote "32grain" cartridges, 'cause that isn't much of a shotgun shell load.
