PACKAGING

828 U is supplied in a polymer case that follows the style of the latest generation of Benelli packages. The internal tartan coating adds an unmistakable touch of elegance.The internal structure is versatile and modular, the barrels-fore-end section and the stock-receiver section are sized and fitted for any 828U customised configuration.

Lock Plate

The patented locking system consists of a plate that perfectly seals the single-piece unit. The firing pressure remains contained in the plate/single-piece assembly, reducing the stress applied to the rotating pins. The 828 U's steel locking system is durable and guarantees the elimination of any mechanical stress on the receiver.

Perfect Fitting

Perfect fitting overcomes the traditional barriers of drop and deviation providing easily customised solutions. Fast shouldering and instinctive aiming are ensured by the countless options to fine-tune drop and deviation (40 combinations: 20 rh-20 lh) to your specific needs. Optimum performance and tailored comfort are within your reach.

Steel Shot

Each barrel marked with the lily emblem undergoes National Proof House testing for steel shot ammunition. The Crio Steel Shot chokes feature elongated chamfers to guarantee maximum ballistic performance and resistance when using Steel ammunition.

Crio System

In cryogenic technology, the first element you need to consider is the barrel. The expansion caused by friction heat and pressure is limited, so that the barrel can vibrate and expand evenly on firing. The pattern provided by a cryogenic barrel is wider, more regular and more uniform, with pattern centres that will not shift as you fire shot after shot, to the benefit of shooting accuracy. Cryogenic treatment also has positive effects on the life of the barrel, which is more resistant to wear and less susceptible to attack by combustion residues. Benelli was the first company to apply Cryogenic Treatment to the barrel and choke of a light firearm on an industrial scale in order to enhance its ballistic performance.

Progressive Balancing

Progressive Balancing is a Benelli patent allowing to adjust the position of the firearm with simplicity and absolute accuracy
