Benelli Answers the Call of Sporting Clays Shooters with the Introduction of the 828U Sport with 32-Inch Barrel
ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 23, 2020) – Sporting clay shooters demand the best of their competition shotguns and look for a smooth swinging shotgun with great follow through. Benelli redefined the over/under shotgun with the 828U before infusing sporting DNA in 2019 to create the 828U Sport. With growing demand from sporting clays shooters for a customized fit and better balance, Benelli answered the call by offering the 828U Sport with a 32-inch barrel.
The popular 828U is based on the revolutionary Lock Plate closing system, which eliminates mechanical stress at the break action. The trigger features an improved pull weight and an adjustable trigger position (length). The extraordinary dynamic behavior of the 828U Sport is due to the ability to perfectly balance the shotgun’s center of gravity using the patented Progressive Balancing system. An anatomically-shaped stock combined with the ability to fine tune the drop and cast with included shims give shooters the perfect custom fit without expensive gunsmithing.
The 32-inch, anti-glare matte-finish barrel is solder free and is topped with a channeled raised rib and white front bead to keep the shooter focused on the target. The satin-finish stock and forend are built from AA walnut. In addition to the five chokes, the 828U Sport comes with drop and cast shims, weights, trigger tool, choke wrench, oil and owner’s manual. Each gun is packed in a plastic case with a separate case for chokes.
Built around a steel receiver for additional weight, the 12-gauge shotgun’s improved grip angle and comb height work in conjunction with the wider carbon fiber rib and sight channel to deliver a sporting shotgun that points fast and swings smooth.
