Benelli 828u...


Recommended Posts

Hi all....just picked up a brand new Benelli 828u with nickel finish in 28''. When I purchased the gun I inspected the gun thoroughly; however, the first time I took the gun out of the case to clean it -- the night before a pheasant hunt-- i noted a crack in the carbon fiber rib at what appeared to be one of the pin sites that was holding the carbon fiber rib in place. Honestly surprised at myself for not picking this up at the store -- spent over 30 minutes inspecting the gun, shouldering the gun etc.


Couple of questions? Has anyone had a similar issues? I am kind of surprised at how weak the carbon fiber rib is...it looks like where the pin secured the ribbing may have been a weak point in the design of the rib. Also, I brought the gun back to the store that I bought it from and they shipped it out to Benelli to be repaired or replaced. Has anyone had any experience dealing with Benelli repair/replacement request? Looking to find out how their experience was and approximately how long it took.


Thanks very much and have a great day!
