SHOT 2015—Benelli’s First Over Under Shotgun The 828U

It may look somewhat traditional, but the new Benelli 828U is nothing but. A totally reimaged and rethought over/under, the 828U is Benelli’s first ever.

Meaning Benelli could add a lightweight alloy receiver on this new over/under shotgun. That isn’t the only innovative idea on the Benelli 828U. Read the Shooter’s Log coverage of all the new firearms and learn more about Benelli’s new over/under shotgun.
