A400 Xplor Action: Semi-auto Versatility, Classic Looks
The A400 Xplor Action is the semi-automatic shotgun designed to perform flawlessly from upland hunts to clay target tournaments. Now available in a left-handed configuration.
It incorporates all the advantages of the revolutionary A400 concept--low profile action, lightweight, lightning-fast follow-up shots, low recoil, easy maintenance--and combines them with the classic looks of blue steel and walnut stock. But even here, Beretta has an eye towards innovation, offering updated lines and checkering, as well as a contrasting-color receiver. Available in 12, 20, and 28 gauge, the A400 Xplor Action defines performance and versatility in a semiauto.
Fast, Versatile, Trim Action
The A400 is a gas-operated action that was built for speed, reliability, and versatility. Featuring the Blink technology, it is capable of firing 4 shells in less than 1 second, giving you the fastest follow-up shots of any shotgun on the market. 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 the target to hard-hitting for hunting). Last but not least, the A400 action is light and trim, making this shotgun’s balance, swing, and pointability an absolute best in its class.
Advanced Recoil Reducing Devices
While only weighing 6.7 lbs max (12-ga), 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--much like in a modern luxury car--absorb the impact of any sudden bump, giving your shoulder a “smooth ride.” Also, the buttpad’s Micro-Core technology adds extra softness between you and any recoil that is left, while still allowing the shotgun to slide up effortlessly to your shoulder without the gummy friction of other pads.
Updated Classic Looks, Easy Maintenance
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. The checkering is fine, giving you secure purchase while pointing and shooting, and on the fore-end, it features the Beretta Trident logo for an updated look. Keeping this shotgun as good as new after a long day on the field or at the range is quick and easy: you can field-strip the A400 Xplor without any tools, and it comes apart in only five components that are a snap to reassemble. 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.
