Benelli is expanding its Ethos line by introducing its new Ethos Sport shotgun series for 2018.

The Benelli Ethos Sport lineup includes 12-, 20- and 28-gauge models. Based on the standard Ethos field model, these Ethos Sport shotguns come with a recoil-absorbing cheek comb pad twice the size of those found on previous versions. The Ethos Sport shotguns also sport a raised, carbon fiber sporting rib and barrel to allow for faster and more effective follow up shots, the company says. Meanwhile, the barrel lengths have been increased, which increases the “smooth swinging” of the Ethos Sport, and enhanced ergonomics make this scattergun easy to operate.

The Ethos Sport models, similar to the field model counterparts, feature AA-Grade satin walnut stocks; engraved nickel-plated receivers and Benelli’s patented locking system. According to the presser, the 28-gauge Ethos Sport model is chambered for 3-inch shells, joining its field model counterpart as the only 28-gauge shotguns to be chambered for both 2-3/4 and 3-inch shells.

MSRP for all three models is $2,269. See the spec breakdown for each variant below. To learn more, visit benelliusa.com.
