A shotgun that feels and shoots like a Benelli from the moment you pick it up to the moment you break it open.
When innovation and inspiration collided the 828U was born–the first O/U worthy of the Benelli badge. With the strength of steel and the weight of aluminum, the 12-gauge 828U has redefined the category.
The 828U features a patented steel locking system and plate, which eliminates the transference of stress-causing shot pressure to the receiver and hinge pins. The compact, easily removable trigger group increases safety and reliability. A redesigned opening lever provides a smoother, more consistent opening action. From butt to barrel, there is nothing about the 828U that hasn’t been rethought and improved.
Progressive Comfort and the 828U.
The Progressive Comfort System is housed within the 828U walnut stock. The progressive nature of the system allows for a constant smooth level of recoil absorption, regardless of light or heavy load.
Steel locking plate.
At the heart of Benelli’s Steel Locking System is a solid steel breech block that locks directly to the rear of the barrel, keeping all pressure from the shot shell contained inside–preventing its transfer to the receiver and hinge pins.
Adjustable drop and cast.
Benelli has created the first O/U that allows for a custom fit stock. With 5 drop and 4 cast shims the 828U can be adjusted to one of 40 possible stock positions. The adjustable stock allows a shooter to find their natural alignment with the barrel and target, which translates into more broken targets.
The 828U triggers reset when the top lever is unlocked instead of by opening the barrels as traditional O/U’s–creating a smoother, more consistent opening action.
Impulse activated ejectors.
The ejector system in the 828U is all contained on the barrel. When the shell is fired pressure activates the ejector. This innovative design eliminates the need for linkages between trigger group and the forend–allowing for a stronger, more streamlined ejection system.
Removable trigger group.
The compact and removable trigger group makes for easier cleaning and eliminates complicated linkage between forearm and trigger mechanism, significantly increasing reliability.
