A shotgun that feels and shoots like a Benelli from the moment you pick it up to the moment you break it open. When innovation and inspiration collided the 828U was born – the first over/under worthy of the Benelli badge. With the strength of steel and the weight of aluminum, the 12-gauge 828U has redefined the category. The 828U features:
- Patented steel locking system and plate
- Easily removable trigger group receiver
- Adjustable drop and cast
- Ergonomic opening lever
- Impulse activated ejectors
From butt to barrel, there is nothing about the 828U that hasn’t been rethought and improved.

BENELLI’S PATENTED STEEL LOCKING SYSTEM
Benelli’s patented Steel Locking System eliminates wear and tear on the receiver and hinge that cause traditional over/unders to fail.
Incorporating this newly-designed steel locking system into an aluminum receiver creates a stronger, safer and lighter over/under that maintains perfect balance at 6.5 pounds.
By locking the solid steel breech block to the rear of the barrel, all shot pressure is contained in the barrels—preventing any stress being transferred to the receiver and hinge pins.
OPENING LEVER AUTO RECOCKING
The 828U triggers reset when the top lever is unlocked instead of by opening the barrels on a traditional over/under—creating a smoother, more consistent opening action.
In addition, the ejector system in the 828U is all contained in the barrel. This design allows for a stronger, more streamlined receiver by eliminating the need for linkages between the trigger group and the forend.
THE FIRST OVER/UNDER THAT ALLOWS YOU TO CREATE A CUSTOM-FIT STOCK
Correct gun fit results in more shots on target. The 828U comes with 5 drop and 4 cast shims, allowing you to adjust to one of 40 possible stock positions.
