After 10 years of research and testing, Benelli solved the number one issue with waterfowl shotguns – rust and corrosion. The revolutionary Benelli Surface Treatment (BE.S.T.) – a new proprietary finishing technology – prevents rust, corrosion and abrasions. Available on select ETHOS models.
Diamond-like carbon particles are used to create a multi-layered surface coating that protects against the elements and abrasions.

Creating a barrier that protects against rust and corrosion created by moisture – even saltwater.
Confident the treatment is impervious to the elements, Benelli is backing parts treated in BE.S.T. with a 25-year warranty.
