The Beretta A400 Xplor Action is a semi-automatic shotgun that will be equally at home on an upland, or duck hunt as well as at the clay range. It incorporates all the advantages of the revolutionary A400 concept–low profile action, light weight, lightning-fast follow-up shots, low recoil, easy maintenance–and combines them with the classic looks of blue steel and walnut stock. The A400 is a gas-operated action that was built for speed, reliability and versatility and with its Blink gas operation, it is capable of firing 4 shells in less than 1 second, giving you fast follow-up shots. Also, with this shotgun you can safely fire lead and steel shot, as well as chamber the best shell for the job regardless of length (2 ¾” to 3”) or power (mild for target to hard-hitting for hunting). Last but not least, the A400 action is light and trim, making this shotgun’s balance, swing and point ability an absolute best in its class. The A400 Xplor Action features multiple recoil-reducers that greatly diminish the impact of each shot on your shoulder (by as much as 70%). Inside the stock, there are hydraulic shock-absorbers that absorb the impact of any sudden bump and the butt pad’s Micro-Core technology adds extra softness between you and any recoil that is left. With its bronze-colored receiver, its classic Beretta blue barrel and its select walnut stock, the A400 Xplor Action is an elegant piece of gear that will figure very nicely even next to a premium over-under. All these features make the A400 Xplor Action the best and most versatile wood-blue semiauto shotgun for a variety of hunting and sporting purposes.
