Benelli 828u

Recommended Posts

There was a post asking for thoughts on this gun started a few days ago, have a scroll down and read through the comments. The gun room on YouTube has done an in depth review of the gun too which is good to watch. 

Not handled one myself so can't comment but they certainly do look nice!

If that’s the o/u Benelli the mate tried one and didn’t like the recoil  he said the felt recoil was bad He asked the fire arm dealer who told him some people bought them then traded them back As I say this was the mates opinion I personally didn’t like the look of them took one of the gun rack they looked (only my opinion) too toy like but never shot it Try them on the clay range see what you think mate good luck

Nephew has had his for over two years now. He regularly shoots both clays and game with it, and he's never mentioned anything untoward.

Mate of mine has one and struggling with it. Don't think it helps that he went with 26" barrels on what is already a very light gun.

A chap on my clay shoot has one. He has had nothing but mechanical problems with his. More than once he’s had to borrow a gun or gone home early because the gun has failed. He’s taken it back to the shop each time and they have fixed it. Last time they confirmed it was a rod in the recoil system had failed i believe. Seams a weakness of the gun. They replaced the gun with another 828u. 

He really likes the gun dispite the problems. The likes the weight and the almost zero recoil from the recoil system. I shot it once and was impressed but had my reservations about the durability of the recoil system.
