Inspired by the high-volume dove shooting found around Cordoba, Argentina, Benelli engineers designed the Cordoba as a lightning fast hunting gun with all the advanced features of a serious sporting clays shotgun. Incorporated into the new Cordoba is the 10-mm tapered sporting rib favored by competition shooters and porting to keep barrel climb to a minimum. The ComforTech stock cushions the blow when an afternoon's ammo isn't measured in boxes, but by the case. The ComforTech system also helps reduce barrel climb and puts the shooter back on target 69% faster, making the Cordoba possibly the fastest field gun ever built. A Crio barrel and extended Crio choke tubes put more pellets on target.
