The Benelli designers have taken the tried and true features of that rugged, bird- and target-busting Vinci and incorporated them into a new version called the Vinci “Speed-Bolt.” Combining these features provide the Vinci Speed-Bolt® with all the attributes that tactical shooters seek—superior balance, lightweight, reduced recoil and minimal muzzle climb. This is what Benelli calls Practical Speed Performance™ or “PSP™,” which is the real performance timeline of “speed,” and includes quickness of mount, immediate target acquisition, fast fire, instant recovery and rapid, reliable follow-up shots.

At the heart of the Vinci Speed-Bolt® is the In-Line Inertia Driven® System, utilizing Benelli’s new Speed-Bolt® – a bolt inset with tungsten, designed for faster cycling and handling loads as light as one ounce—and that means less recoil and muzzle climb. Experienced tactical competition shooters appreciate and value less recoil and muzzle climb in terms of getting on target quicker after the first shot. The next shot can be taken quickly and efficiently, which is critical for scoring winning times.

Another innovation is the QuadraFit™ buttstock, which is the closest thing to a custom-fitted stock straight from the factory available in the market. It allows easy adjustment of drop, cast, comb height, and length of pull. It also incorporates ComforTech® Plus, which effectively cushions recoil for quicker shooting. The Vinci Speed-Bolt utilizes a vent rib, favored by competition shooters and hunters alike. The Vinci Speed-Bolt® also features a corrugated V-Grip™ surface for a positive grip on the gun. The Vinci Speed-Bolt®’s barrel and choke tubes have been cryogenically frozen to a temperature of -300 degrees Fahrenheit. This Crio® system treatment relieves the stresses caused when the barrels are hammer forged and smoothes the bore to a more even-grained slicker surface. As a result, the bore surface offers less resistance to the shot column for more even patterns, which puts more pellets on target and a quicker limit in your bag. Like the original Vinci, the superbly balanced Vinci Speed-Bolt® embodies all the features that make this semi-auto the most reliable, softest kicking, fastest shooting, lightweight tactical shotgun in the world.

“The tungsten inset featured in the Speed-Bolt® of this new Vinci gives a definite advantage to the competitive shooter,” said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli USA’s VP of Marketing. “With the ability to recovery quicker and hit multiple targets faster, shaving even a fraction of a second can give the winning edge that every competitor desires.”
