A400 Xplor Light: Ideal Semiauto Shotgun for Upland Hunting
Weighing only a touch over 6 lbs, the Beretta A400 Xplor Light is the perfect shotgun for upland hunting. It features the A400 action, meaning that it delivers follow-up shots 36% faster than any other semi-automatic on the market, while recoil is kept to a minimum thanks to several built-in devices.
Capable of shooting any type of 12-gauge shell between 2 ¾” and 3,” it gives you unbeatable versatility and flawless functioning regardless of the load you use.
Light Weight, Perfect balance
Oftentimes, upland hunting is no stroll in the park. Tall grass, thick cattails, knee-busting marshes--these are all things that the serious upland hunter must negotiate to flush out that elusive ringneck or partridge. On such adventures, you need a shotgun light enough not fatigue the arms while still sufficiently solid to offer a steady feel when you bring it up to the shoulder.
The A400 Xplor Light is exactly such shotgun, born of Beretta’s centuries-old experience satisfying the needs of the most demanding hunters. And with its point of balance right where the receiver meets the fore-end, it keeps the weight right between your hands, while letting your supporting hand follow your eye right to the target.
Low Recoil (70% Reduction)
The A400 Xplor Light is designed to be as easy on the shoulder while shooting it as it is on the arms while carrying it. It features today’s most advanced recoil-reducing devices, operating simultaneously to give you a pleasant shooting experience even on the longest day in the field.
The MicroCore buttpad soaks up the recoil generated by the powder ignition and shot, while not giving you the snaggy, rubbery friction of most aftermarket buttpads when you bring it up to the shoulder.
Also, a hydraulic shock-absorber mounted in the stock acts as an ABS brake to the recoil generated by the rearward-moving parts of the action during firing--thereby also contributing to the receiver’s durability.
Trim Lines, Flawless Finish, Easy Maintenance
The A400 action is slim and low-profile, giving you great pointability as well as lightness. Its lines blend perfectly with the overall appearance of the shotgun, with its classic Beretta elegance and a touch of cutting-edge style.
And keeping the A400 Xplor Light as good as new is easy, thanks to its tool-free disassembly into five components that are a snap to put back together even in less-than-ideal field conditions. A shotgun designed to be extra-durable while being light and low-recoil, the A400 Xplor Light is your best companion for your upland hunts.
