The Beretta A400 Xcel is a 12-gauge competition shotgun that is faster-cycling, softer-shooting and better balanced than anything else on the market. Built on the revolutionary A400 action, it delivers follow-up shots 36% faster than any other brand, while its advanced recoil-reducing systems make it absolutely pleasant to shoot, even on demanding all-day competitions. Its sleek lines and superior ergonomics are designed with one goal in mind: letting the A400 naturally follow your eye to the target. This is why it has quickly become a favorite among serious competitive shooters the world over. The A400 action is the culmination of Beretta’s centuries-old experience and passion for shotguns. It feeds reliably all types of shells from 2 ¾” to 3,” with loads ranging from target-light to hard hitting–making it also suited for the occasional upland or waterfowl hunt. Also, it features the unique Blink technology, a gas-operating system that is capable of delivering two shots in less than half a second, while also integrating an easy-maintenance self-cleaning piston. Furthermore, the action has sleek lines and a low profile, meaning that the vertical distance between the dominant eye and the supporting hand is reduced to a minimum. The result? A gun that follows your swing like an extension of your body and eyesight–and many more broken clays. There are no two ways about it: felt recoil is only a liability and the less of it, the better. The A400 Xcel incorporates several recoil-reducing systems operating simultaneously to make recoil virtually negligible (70% overall reduction). One is a hydraulic shock absorber that softens the rearward energy from the action’s moving parts, which minimizes felt recoil while reducing wear within the receiver. Another is a Micro-Core buttpad that all but neutralizes the recoil generated by the power of the cartridge. Also, the A400 is designed to recoil parallel to the comb, meaning no thump to the cheek and minimal muzzle rise. The A400 Xcel’s cold-hammer forged barrel is made of nickel-chromium-molybdenum steel (Beretta’s “Steelium”), a proprietary formula engineered for consistency, toughness and durability.

Beretta A400 Xcel Sporting Semi-Auto Shotgun specifically for sporting clays competition; though with the ability to shoot 2-3/4″ and 3″ shells interchangeably without having to make adjustments, the A400 Xcel makes an extremely versatile shotgun that can also be used in the field. After all, sporting clays originated to duplicate field shooting. To aid shooters in hitting quick flying, multiple targets, the A400 semi-automatic shotgun uses Beretta’s Blink operating system that cycles super fast—capable of shooting 4 shots in less than 1 second. The A400’s action features a rotating bolt, and a self-cleaning piston to ensure the shotgun operates in all conditions and is low in maintenance. The A400 Xcel Sporting features 2 advanced recoil reduction systems that reduce shooter fatigue, allowing one to stay on target all day. The spring-loaded shock absorbers in the stock, and a Micro Core buttpad reduce felt recoil by as much as 70%.
