Wait, an over/under from Benelli? You bet your cannoli. It’s hard not to love Italian shotguns and Benelli’s foray into the double gun game is, as you’d expect, extremely impressive. It’s a modern, sleek take on a traditional design. The 828U features an aluminum receiver (with steel hinges), carbon fiber rib, cushy gel comb, shim-adjustable drop and cast, a fully removable trigger group, a fiber optic front sight and more. All in a very light package – a slight 6.6 lbs. for the 28″ model . . .
That light weight made it swing like a dream, but Benelli’s Progressive Comfort (a system of internal buffers in the stock) keep it from kicking like a mule. Sure, the black receiver model runs $2499 MSRP while the nicely figured nickel version will set you back $2999. But this ain’t your average gun. Oh, and it’s a Benelli.
