828 U Steel BE.S.T. Black


828 U STEEL BE.S.T. BLACK is pure resistance. Its receiver is made of steel and gives the superimposed unparalleled strength and excellent stability, reducing recoil. The BE.S.T. (Benelli Surface Treatment) treatment covers steel action, Lock Plate, safety, top lever, safety and fore-end iron. A coating that goes beyond the usual, very high hardness, combined with an incomparable resistance to corrosion and wear to all other treatments on the market. The style of 828 U Steel BE.S.T. Black, combines precious Grade 3 walnut woods finished with oil with total black BE.S.T. steel, with different finishes for each layer of the receiver and the BE.S.T. logo that embraces the grip of the over-and-under. Already at first glance, the absolute black BE.S.T. has more nuances than any other color.

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.


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.



BE.S.T. is an exclusive Benelli technology to guarantee maximum resistance to corrosion, abrasion, wear and the elements. BE.S.T. surface treatment uses cutting-edge hybrid technology, covered by trade secret. The coating has characteristics similar to those of a diamond when it comes to hardness, resistance and precious finish. BE.S.T. is completely eco-friendly, since the process used involves no dangerous emissions for the environment.



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.
