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 828 U Sport to their preferred shooting style.
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.
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.
The 828 U Sport's trigger can be moved forward or backward so your finger sits exactly where you want. Customize it to your finger length.
It is well known that a correct gun fit results in more accurate shots on target. Included in the 828 U Sport shim system are 5 drop and 4 cast shims, creating up to 40 possible stock positions. The kit makes it easier for the 828 U Sport shooter to easily adjust to find a proper alignment and fit without the added time and expense of stock modifications.
