“828” is the number that identifies the historical town of Urbino in Unesco’s list of World Heritage Sites. The 828 U over and under combines the artistry of the past with the technology of the future.
The elegance of the Silver version of the 828 U is expressed through the sleek lines of the receiver, embellished with original engravings that extend without interruption on to the stock, creating harmony of form between the different materials. The wood stock incorporates Benelli’s Progressive Comfort system, and a special polyurethane stock and comb that are superbly effective at reducing recoil and muzzle rise. Lightness, comfort, stability and versatility all find their ultimate expression in the 828 U. This quick swinging over and under is also amazingly steady and easy to customise for hunters of all statures and shooting styles. The 828 U is the only over and under that permits fine adjustment of drop and cast for truly perfect fitting.The heart of Benelli’s O&U is its tempered steel lock plate. This simple but ingenious design guarantees robust, reliable locking and eliminates mechanical stress at the receiver’s hinge pins. By combining this advanced locking system with an aluminium receiver, Benelli has succeeded in creating an O&U shotgun that weighs less than 3 Kg but is also extremely robust and perfectly balanced.
Another key feature of the 828 U is its fast-acting, precise, compact, practical, reliable and easy to remove trigger unit. Owning an 828 U means tailored comfort and maximum accuracy.
