Few auto-loaders stand up against the Super Black Eagle, and Benelli’s 3.0 version has all the makings of the greatest Italian duck guns. A touch lighter than the SBE2, you’ll feel less recoil thanks to the ComforTech III system.
The stock, grip, forend, magcap, lifter and barrel were redesigned, but it still felt much like the 2 (a good thing) when we shot it on back-to-back bucket-list trips to Alaska for king eider. Available in black, Realtree Max-5, Mossy Oak Bottomland or Gore Optifade Timber. $1,899-$1,999 | benelliusa.com
