For all those folks making their judgments (especially regarding recoil) based on their experience with the 828U, you realize that the 828U was designed as a light weight field gun and this 828 Sport has a steel receiver and is heavier, right? While I have questions about the lock up, the adjustable shims and weight systems make it look interesting. Still think it's priced a bit too high compared to well-known competitors.


They put a sporting clays barrel on it therefore making it a clays gun! :roll:


I forgot the steel receiver, now it’s a REAL sporting clays gun! :roll:


I've always wanted a REAL sporting clays gun, but there's not enough Benelli cool-aid on this earth to make me buy an 828.

How would anyone know that it is a "Sport" model?

It is bizarrely overpriced, the so-called ejectors destroy hulls, and it is one of the most stunningly hideous, truly repugnant looking O/U's ever made.

It is beyond ridiculous. At "Starting Price $4,399" according to Benelli, it is insulting overpriced compared to numerous well-established, highly regarded models from the generic Beretta 686, Browning Citori / 725, the Fabarm N2 Sporting (with an adjustable comb), and others. You also can get into a Blaser F16 at that level.

It is a strong candidate for joke of the year.

Yet, people will buy it because it’s a BENELLI!

Would that be based on the several days of experience Benelli has in making steel receivers?

Does Beretta have any say in what Benelli markets or in their pricing, or are they just allowed to free wheel as an independent profit center? Just curious because it seems a great deal of Beretta Holdings are prone to stepping on each others toes in their product line.

I didn’t even realize that benelli had brought out this sport version until this weekend and a guy in the squad was shooting one.

This guy in the past has shot a Perazzi so was surprised to see him with the 828. He isn’t a talkative sort or I would have asked him for the low down on it

Last year I shot 10 shots thru the field version and couldn’t give it back to the vendor fast enough. I broke the targets but it was harsh to shoot

I'd spend my money on the new Yildiz Pro Sporter before buying an 828U Sport.

The Benelli faithful will have to drink a lot of the Benelli kool aid to stomach that price for the 828U Sporting. :lol:

Agree the pricing makes no sense at all.

The design of the receiver implies to me they were looking to save money on machining of both stock and receiver although I suppose you could pitch it as 'adjustable' and that could be a benefit. But at the price offered you could have your Citori or 686 fit to you.

Does the trigger falling out qualify it as a detachable trigger model?

And to think Randy Wakeman was extolling the virtues of the Retay Arms because it had an easy to remove trigger. Hah! Benelli has it, and it is fully automatic!

I saw this feature in action at a 5 stand about a 1 year ago. Very impressive.
