ACCOKEEK, MD –-( Meet the newest member of the Benelli Ultra-Light family —the Ultra-Light 28-Gauge. Weighing in at just 5 pounds, this sleek, beautiful shotgun happens to be the lightest auto-loading shotgun in the world.

Benelli’s precision engineering and innovative technology has created an extraordinary shotgun that can provide performance and reliability all day long without weighing down the shooter.

The same fast firing, ultra-reliable Inertia Driven system, for which Benelli’s 12- and 20-gauges are famous, now accommodates the intriguing, sophisticated and efficient 28-gauge cartridge in the Ultra-Light.

The Ultra-Light 28-gauge incorporates many of the same weight-reducing features that lightened up its other family members so noticeably, but this slim 28-gauge features a featherweight two-piece blued alloy receiver. Its 26-inch Crio® barrel is topped with a

super-strong, super-light, carbon-fiber raised target vent rib that’s made from the same material employed on Formula 1 race cars. The carbon-fiber rib also employs a mid-bead and features a red-bar front sight. Trimmed down in every respect including a slim barrel and sleek shortened fore-end, the Ultra-Light 28 points and handles like a dream.

Hunters and target shooters alike will appreciate the Ultra-Light 28’s weather-resistant satin walnut WeatherCoatä stock, which is sealed with a five-step finishing process, making it virtually impervious to the elements. The buttstock is also fitted with a gel recoil pad, providing maximum comfort and effective recoil absorption for the already light-kicking 28-gauge cartridge. The Ultra-Light 28 embodies style and performance in a way that not only makes this an attractive and comfortable shotgun to carry, but one that can endure whatever demands you make of it.

Nice write up but I'll stick with my 28 o/u, at half the price.
