Benelli 828U Sport

THE INNOVATIVE BENELLI 828U: NOW MADE SPECIFICALLY FOR TARGET SHOOTING


Exclusively designed for Sporting and Compak, 828U Sport is based on the revolutionary Lock Plate, the unfailing closing system of 828U Platform, while vaunting a 100% Sporting DNA. The Extraordinary Dynamic Behavior of 828 U Sport is guaranteed by its 3,650 g. weight, perfectly balanced on the rotating pins, with the possibility to further adjust the position of the center of gravity thanks to the patented  Progressive Balancing system. The anatomically-shaped stock and the possibility for a fine regulation of drop and cast allowed by Perfect Fitting lead to a total ergonomics of the shotgun. 828U Sport relies on a clever combination of technologies and design the ensure high ballistic performance: Powerbore Technology, Cryogenic Treatment of barrels and chockes, solder-free barrels, maximize precision,  speed and braking power of the patterns; anti-glare matte finish, carbon fibre wide rib, white sight, ensure that the focus is exclusively on the target. The outstanding Trigger Group  is light, ready and crisp for an unmatched glass rod breaking feeling. Discover the unparalleled features that makes 828U Sport “ the sporting over and under”.


FEATURES:

Progressive Balancing

A balanced shotgun is essential for consistent performance. Benelli engineers created an innovative system using a combination of small weights in the buttstock. Simply adding or removing these weights changes the center of balance fore and aft, allowing the shooter to balance the 828U Sport to their preferred shooting style.


 Steel Receiver

Benelli engineers paired the internal Steel Locking System with a steel receiver. The additional weight in the center of the gun creates a system that is well-balanced and stable and helps reduce felt recoil during the thousands of shots fired with a target gun.


Patented Locking System

Benelli's patented steel locking system eliminates wear and tear on the receiver and hinge that cause traditional O/U's to fail. The heart of Benelli's Steel Locking System is a solid steel breech block that locks directly to the monoblock, containing all pressure from the shotshell and preventing its transfer to the receiver and hinge pins.


Integrated Sight Channel

A wide carbon-fiber rib on the 828U Sport features an integrated sight channel that guides your eye to the front white bead for consistent and precise alignment along the sight plane


Extended Chokes

Each 828U Sport comes with a choke wrench and 5 extended nickel/red Crio® chokes in C, IC, M, IM, F.


Create a custom fit stock

It is well known that a correct gun fit results in more accurate shots on target. Included in the 828U Sport shim system are 5 drop and 4 cast shims, creating up to 40 possible stock positions. The kit makes it easier for the 828U Sport shooter to easily adjust to find a proper alignment and fit without the added time and expense of stock modifications.


Movable Trigger

The 828U Sport's trigger can be moved forward or backward so your finger sits exactly where you want. Customize it to your finger length.


Benelli Powerbore

The barrel Power Bore cryogenic drilling with diameters selected and extremely low speeds and provides greater penetration of the target. Cryo Power Bore hole drilling on a perfect bull's-eye target and insured.


Benelli Crio System

Superior shooting performance thanks to uniform barrel vibration and expansion during firing; broader, more even and more uniform hot patterns. 

Benelli is the first firearms manufacturer to apply industrial cryogenic treatments to small arms barrels and chokes in order to enhance ballistic performance. Until now, the cost and complexity of cryogenic treatments have limited applications to high-tech industries like aerospace, surgical instruments and other specialist sectors.

The first element of the Crio System is the Crio barrel. Cryogenically treated steel expands very little under the effects of heat and pressure. This allows Crio barrels to vibrate and expand uniformly on firing. As the graphic shows, the pattern obtained using a Crio barrel is broader, better distributed and more uniform, and pattern centres do not shift as the number of rounds fired increases, all to the benefit of accurate shooting. Cryogenic treatment also extends barrel life by improving resistance to wear and attack by combustion residues.

The Crio System has also been successfully applied to the choke. Crio chokes are elongated in shape with a particularly gentle and gradual taper to the barrel bore (1). These characteristics have been specially developed to avoid clustering and to reduce shot deformation. It is a well-known fact of aerodynamics that a perfectly spherical ball will move faster and in a straighter line than a flattened or deformed one.

Benelli’s Crio System gives shot patterns that are considerably denser and better distributed towards the centre and at the edges. These photographs of shot in flight, taken by Benelli’s own Research and Development department using special equipment, compare the results obtained from a Crio barrel and Crio choke (2) with those obtained from a standard barrel and choke.
