Benelli has announced it will offer one of its most technologically-advanced over-under shotguns, the 828U, chambered for 20-gauge in 2020.

The 828U is built around a monobloc design, onto which the barrels are soldered. The monobloc is machined to accept sears that are set to either extract shells or, if activated by the expansion of the fired shell, forcefully eject them from the gun.

Aluminum is used in the construction of the 828U receiver, and as such requires use of a steel breech block that engages corresponding surfaces on the monobloc while the action is closed. This designs shaves weight and improves the gun’s balance and handling ability.

Available barrel lengths for the line extension will be 26” and 28”, which provides for an overall weight of 5.9 and 6 lbs., respectively. Like with the 828U 12-gauge, the 20-gauge variant will include Crio barrels, Crio chokes and AA-Grade walnut in a satin finish. Additionally Benelli includes its Progressive Comfort System to mitigate felt recoil.
