Benelli Supernova Questions

I'm thinking of getting a Benelli Supernova with the 18" barrel and rifle sights. The primary purpose is for shooting slugs (and buckshot).

I have a few questions for anyone who knows the answers:

Is the barrel chrome lined like the semi-auto models?

Is the barrel crio treated? (I don't think it is.)

Is it safe to shoot slugs? (I suspect it is given the barrel length and rifle sights.)

Any other comments are certainly welcome!

I have the Super Nova Tactical with ghost ring sights. Yes it does have a chrome lined barrel and it is safe to shoot slugs. I bought mine to use as a slug gun but I still shoot buckshot and target loads through it as well.

Mine holds a very tight group using Remington Sluggers.
