This gun comes with a shim system and is the first of its kind that comes with such a feature. The shim allows users to adjust the ‘cast and drop’ of stick in more than 40 positions, which is quite impressive. This gun has indeed being reviewed as one of the most ‘easy to use guns’ for starters and following are some of the features of this gun that helps starters. The free-floating locking plate that is incorporated in the new locking mechanism ensures a robust design and makes the gun perform much better. It has got four contact positions with the barrel of the gun. Owing to this, the makers of Benelli were allowed to use a lighter aluminum frame that ensured a meager 6.5 pound weight of the gun.

Much unlike the lever that is found on other over/under shotguns, the Benelli 828U shotgun for sale re-cocks the gun by opening the barrels.

Using a tool that comes with the gun, the user can easily pop out the trigger group to clean it. What users can also do is to remove a spring and then choose the manual safety option from being an auto one. This is often preferred by target shooters who often like to take this feature off and then leave it throughout skeet or sporting clays.

The barrels of the Benelli 828U are interchangeable with other guns and this is a hard to find feature among ‘break-action’ guns.
