In the run up to next year’s SHOT show, manufacturers have to do something to keep the pot boiling. Call it The Attack of the Minor Variants. In this case, we have the Benelli Waterfowl Edition Super Black Eagle II. Big Ben’s Performance Shop blesses each shotgun with a custom-tuned trigger group (in C sharp), a Hi Viz Comp front sight and a lengthened and polished forcing cone (who doesn’t need one of those?). But here’s the deal maker: Rob Roberts’ Custom Triple Threat Chokes. Which isn’t a sports headline, but a really sweet trio of chokes that “apply specifically to waterfowl hunting at short-, medium- and long-range distances.” So, you can buy the Benelli Super Black Eagle II for $1759, forgo the trigger and cone job and PayPal Mr. Roberts $150 for his chokes, or shell-out $2899 for the Waterfowl Edition. Do the birds care? No. No they don’t.
