When the leading worldwide producer of semi-automatic shotguns turns their hand to making an over and under, the result is going to be extremely innovative and beautifully engineered. The 828U is that gun. A ground breaking 12G which, although it weighs the same as a 20G, does not have the recoil associated with a light gun. Consequently it is incredibly smooth to shoot. The major innovation lies in the action. The outer structure is made from premium grade milled aluminium, with an internal steel locking mechanism to ensure action strength.
BENELLI'S PATENTED STEEL LOCKING SYSTEM
Benelli's patented Steel Locking System eliminates wear and tear on the receiver and hinge that cause traditional over/unders to fail. Incorporating this newly-designed steel locking system into an aluminum receiver creates a stronger, safer and lighter over/under that maintains perfect balance at 6.5 pounds. By locking the solid steel breech block to the rear of the barrel, all shot pressure is contained in the barrels—preventing any stress being transferred to the receiver and hinge pins.
OPENING LEVER AUTO RECOCKING
The 828U triggers reset when the top lever is unlocked instead of by opening the barrels on a traditional over/under—creating a smoother, more consistent opening action. In addition, the ejector system in the 828U is all contained in the barrel. This design allows for a stronger, more streamlined receiver by eliminating the need for linkages between the trigger group and the forend.
THE FIRST OVER/UNDER THAT ALLOWS YOU TO CREATE A CUSTOM-FIT STOCK
Correct gun fit results in more shots on target. The 828U comes with 5 drop and 4 cast shims, allowing you to adjust to one of 40 possible stock positions. The shim system allows the 828U shooter to find a proper alignment and fit without the time and expense of stock modifications.
BENELLI’S PROGRESSIVE COMFORT SYSTEM
The Progressive Comfort System is contained within the 828U walnut stock (shown in the cutaway images here). The flexible and lightweight polymer buffers compress to absorb recoil energy. The heavier the shot load, the more buffers come into play to help absorb and cushion the recoil.
