828U Left hand version: designed specifically for left-handed shooters, the best combination of ergonomics, camfort and aesthetic excellence, in pure Benelli style.
828U Compact: Five stock lengths make it possible to find the perfect fit between hunter and its shotgun, for a natural and instinctive shouldering without precedent. Lenght of pull (mm): 345-355-365-375 std -385
30″ Crio Powerbore Barrel: the high performance of Power Bore and Criogenic technologies now available also in 30″ barrel lenght.
The 828 U system is “smart” because it is activated by the explosion of the cartridge and therefore ejects only the exploded shell but not the snap caps. The pressure developed by the cartridge during the shot press the pins in the firing chamber and activates the ejection.
The system is fully contained in the mono bloc, therefore eliminating the mechanical connection between the trigger guard and the fore end.
Benelli’s Progressive Comfort system, special polyurethane pad and comb are superbly effective at reducing recoil and muzzle rise. All these elements guarantee an immediate feeling between shooter and shotgun.
828 U is the only over and under that allows all hunters (right or left handed) to finely adjust the drop and cast.
By using suitable supplied plates it is possible to choose among 40 different combinations.
By optimizing the drop and cast depending on the physique and shooting style of the hunter it is possible to customize the model to extremely instinctive and natural aiming, thus the shooting experience will be more accurate and pleasant.
Compact and removable, the 828 U trigger release unit is accurate, handy, reliable and with short percussion time. The hammers have a linear movement and they are recocked by the opening key. The selector is inertial. The trigger group is extremely easy to remove by the key for detachable trigger group. A flawless example of weaponry technology evolution.

The revolutionizing steel locking of the 828U is extremely resistant and ensures the dampening of the mechanical stress on the action frame. The system comprises of a plate that perfectly seals the mono bloc, limiting the shot pressure inside, without affecting the rotation and locking pins. By including this “steel motor” in an alloy action frame, the result is a resistant, light and perfectly balanced over and under. This is a unique and extraordinarily effective way to conceive the locking of an over and under.
The Power Bore barrels selected with a maximum diameter of 18.5 mm and cryogenically tempered together with the chokes, ensure powerful and uniform patterns. The carbon fiber rib and the lack of side ribs ensure steady barrels vibration, thus optimizing their ballistic performance.
The sleek action frame lines, without a single visible screw or pin, are brought out by the original engravings inspired by the Urbino Duchy. The peacock tail checkering of the stock spreads seamlessly to the action frame in a perfect harmony of materials and shapes.
To complete this new design: trigger guard, the opening key and upper portion of the mono bloc, a masterful combination of innovation, ergonomics and function in a contemporary style.
