31 New Shotguns for 2019
The feature-packed Benelli Model 828U Sport is designed for sporting clays.

Shotguns of all kinds are available this year in various price and aesthetic ranges, from tactical bullpups to .410 Bore turkey guns. We dedicated scattergunners shall not be deterred from our appointed rounds at skeet, sporting clays, and birds of a feather. Here are brief synopses of some of the most interesting new shotguns that caught my eye at this year’s SHOT Show.


Benelli Model 828U Sport, M2, Super Black Eagle

The feature-packed Benelli Model 828U Sport is designed for sporting clays. Its 30-inch barrels come with five extended choke tubes, an anti-glare matte-finish, and a channeled top rib. The anatomically shaped stock is AA walnut, and the Model 828U Sport comes with weights, a trigger tool, and a shim kit to adjust drop and cast, all in a sturdy hard case.

MSRP: $4,399

The M2 semiauto from Benelli’s Performance Shop is now offered in 20 gauge in waterfowl and turkey configurations. Both are chambered for 3-inch magnums, weigh a hair under 6 pounds, and are available in various camo finishes. The turkey version has a 24-inch barrel and five flush-fitting Benelli choke tubes, plus a Roberts extended XTF turkey tube. The waterfowl version has a 28-inch barrel and comes with a Burris FastFire sight and a HiViz CompSight.

MSRP: $3,339 (Turkey), $2,799 (Waterfowl)

Not to be outdone, the Super Black Eagle is also available in new turkey and waterfowl models.

New-Shotguns-2019-Browning

Browning Cynergy Wicked Wing

Browning extends the “Wicked Wing” concept to its Cynergy over-under shotgun with a new finish that is sure to tempt the waterfowler. The Cynergy Wicked Wing wears Mossy Oak Bottomland camo on the composite buttstock and forearm and Burnt Bronze Cerakote on the receiver and barrels. It’s an attractive package. The 12-gauge barrels have 3.5-inch chambers, and they utilize the Banded Invector-Plus Extended choke system. Barrel lengths offered are 26, 28, and 30 inches. The trigger is gold-plated, and the front sight is an ivory-colored bead. The gun comes with a Cynergy Inflex recoil pad.

New-Shotguns-2019-CZUSA

CZ-USA Model 1012, Bobwhite

The receiver is available in black, gray, or bronze Cerakote finish. A Mossy Oak Blades camo finish is also available. Barrels are 28 inches long, come with five choke tubes, and shoot all loads from light-recoiling target loads to 3-inch magnums without adjustment. The safety is in front of the trigger, so if you are used to the safety in that position, you are good to go.

CZ has reintroduced the Bobwhite in 12, 20, and 28 gauges, and it also comes with five choke tubes. This traditional side-by-side has double triggers, a splinter forearm, and a straight grip. Traditionalists will love it, and so do I.

The 26-inch barrel has a fixed Full choke and should be deadly with Federal’s new .410 turkey load with 13/16 ounce of #9 TSS Heavyweight shot.
