Benelli Debuts 828U Shotgun
April 24, 2019
The Benelli 828U Sport over-and-under shotgun is exclusively designed for Sporting and Compak shooting. Clay competition shooters will have an opportunity to see the Benelli 828U Sport at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits.
Competition shooters attending the NRA Show can stop by the Benelli booth (No. 6648) to get first-hand experience with the 828U Sport. The 828U Sport features improved ergonomics and must-have features for the serious clays shooter, and is an enhanced version of its first over-and-under shotgun. Built around a steel receiver for additional weight, the 12 gauge shotgun's improved grip angle and comb height work in conjunction with the wider carbon fiber rib and sight channel to deliver a sporting shotgun that points fast and swings smooth.
The Progressive Balancing system of the 828U Sport provides balance of the shotgun's center of gravity while the including shims deliver 40 different combinations of drop and cast for a fully customized fit for individual shooters. Reliability is a must during competition and the 828U Sport's revolutionary Lock Plate closing system eliminates mechanical stress at the break action. The removable trigger group features an improved pull weight and an adjustable trigger position (length).
The 30-inch barrel is solder free and topped with a channeled raised rib and white front bead to help the shooter focus on the target. The satin finished stock and forend are built from AA walnut. In addition to the five chokes, the 828U Sport comes with drop and cast shims, weights, trigger tool, choke wrench, oil and owner's manual. Each gun is packed in a plastic case with a separate case for chokes.
