Benelli's New 828U

A lot of new products were unveiled last week at Shot Show.  One of the new firearms getting a lot of ink is Benelli's New 828U over/under shotgun.  Author and champion shooter Julie Golob wrote:
While the 828U may seem like a departure from the Benelli line of semi-automatic shotguns for which the brand has earned its loyal following, the company’s devotion to customer preference and legacy of pushing both the design and performance envelope made the decision to produce the 828U a natural for the company.
NRA's Shawn Skipper wrote:
When you see an over/under with a walnut stock, you're not often thinking of a "modern" shotgun—but that's still what Benelli delivered. The 828U is as contemporary and practical as you're going to find within its market. It feature  an auto-safety, easy-operating opening lever and steel lock-plate opening system, paired with impulse-driven ejection. Floating crio barrels and crio chokes, weight-reducing carbon fiber rib and a high-grade alloy receiver compliment the walnut stock and forearm. Durable steel-on-steel hinges, removable guard and easy-to-remove trigger system make for easy cleanup.
Shawn got the chance to speak with shotgun expert Pat Kelly about the 828U at the Shot Show Media Day at the Range.
The firearm comes it at $2,999 for the nickel-engraved version or  $2,499 for the black anodized model.
