Shotgun design has never been so beautiful and functional at the same time.
The technologically advanced competition shotgun with Blink, Kick Off , Micro core, Steelium, Optima Bore Hp and from today also with Balance Cap and the new Gun Pod system, a computerised display which allows you to always have everything under control.
The Blue Receiver is only a warning: when your opponents see it, they’ll already know who the winner is.
Perfect mix of walnut and polymer to maximize performance
From the fore-end insert to the trigger guard and over to the Kick-Off® interface, each polymer component of the A400 Xcel has been conceived to optimize form, weight and functionality.
Blue receiver: a true cosmetic alternative respectful of even the most classic tastes
The finishing of the A400 Xcel’s receiver is an absolute innovation in the world of competition shotguns and represents the union between the protective characteristics of anodizing and the exclusive blue color that renders the A400 Xcel truly unique, a blue technological beast.
Higher technology for higher scores
Gun Pod is the first electronic assistant that allows you to have under control the number of shots, to test the cartridges and measure the outside temperature.
Gun Pod System
The new Gun Pod system, a computerised display which allows you to always have everything under control.
Technological precision with human passion
Balance Cap. Normally an additional feature, now provided here as standard. The new magazine cap is designed to optimize the balance of the gun.
Three interchangeable weights comprise the Balance Cap System allowing shooters to achieve that perfect point where the shotgun becomes but an extension of them. An anodized finish on the Balance Cap protects the system from the elements allowing the shooter to compete anytime, anywhere.
The best recoil reduction system in the world: -60%
Kick-Off® is the only recoil reduction in the world that uses two hydraulic dampeners very similar to those in automobile suspensions. all the other systems on the market are based on the deformation of soft materials like rubber, polyurethane or polymer inserts.
Just think what it would feel like to drive your car on rubber shock absorbers!
Technological research pursuing ergonomics and comfort with a single-minded purpose: to help you hit more targets.
A400 Xcel is equipped with the best technological solutions in the world to increase shooting comfort and improve the controllability of the gun. Recoil almost reduced to zero, maximum muzzle raise reduction and perfect shouldering will be your best allies in guaranteeing a successful hunt every time.
A further step forward in performance - soft, light and able to slide during shouldering
Micro-Core is an innovative recoil pad developed by Beretta thanks to its experience matured over decades on the competition fields around the world.
Thanks to the open cell technopolymer, softer, lighter and more slippery than rubber, micro-core expands gradually and instantly, increasing its surface area on the shoulder and giving the shotgun secure and precise support.
Reliable speed and unequaled performance
Blink is the new “engine” of the A400 Xcel, the fruit of the integration of the new Beretta gas system, the rotating bolt head lock-up and a new feeding system.
The new gas system features an innovative piston with elastic scraper band that also functions as a gasket.
In this way, Blink is more powerful and much cleaner.
36% faster than any other semi-automatic
The mechanism of the A400 Xcel is a true jewel of engineering that distinguishes itself from all other systems on the market with its exceptional cycling speed.
Being the fastest to shoot follow-up shots means increasing your chances of hitting the target.
Steelium is the production technology of the Beretta barrels that transforms the special tri-alloy steel into an exceptional barrel, also due to a manufacturing process that is just as unique.
Thanks to the gundrilling, cold hammer forging and to the special vacuum relieving, the steel acquires the ideal characteristics to offer the best ballistic performance available today.
The best barrels in the world
Supported by a production history that started in 1526, today Beretta manufactures more than 500,000 barrels a year, and is the world leader in ballistic research technology.
The steelium technology, together with the exclusive optima-bore hp profile, gives the Beretta barrels excellent and unique ballistic characteristics, even with steel shot.
The special Optima-Bore® HP geometry was conceived to offer the best performance, even with steel shot.
The shot pattern remains perfect and uniform in every type of hunt, complemented by the use of the Optima-Choke® HP choke tubes.
