The Benelli Vinci is a semi-automatic hunting shotgun chambered in 12 gauge. The Vinci is named after the famous Italian Renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci because, Benelli says, like da Vinci, the Vinci is an innovator.

The Vinci uses Benelli’s Inertia Driven System where recoil energy cycles the action. The bolt is semi-fixed until the backwards force, vibrating through the gun, arrives to the bolt housing, the vibration rattles the bolt and it slides back. As it travels back it pushes against the inertia spring and once compressed all the way, the spring pushes back in turn the bolt travels forward. This system is used instead of letting gas or the initial explosion drive the bolt back. And, since the gases don’t seep into the chamber there won’t be any carbon-build up.

Other features include a single-stage trigger that sets off the action with a short pull. It is a 3-piece modular design, so it’s easy to snap together and disassemble. The ComforTech Plus Recoil Pad adds comfort and absorbs and dampens recoil. The vent rib acts as a guide leading to the mid-bead and bright red bar front sight. And, it’s lightweight at around 6.8 pounds.

Benelli recommends the Vinci for hunting any winged game.
