A400 Xcel Parallel Target: Ultimate Evolution for Trap, Sporting Clays

The A400 Xcel Parallel Target is a semiauto competition shotgun optimized for trap and sporting clays.

parallel-intro

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 raised parallel comb lets the eye glide naturally along the raised target rib (taper: 10mm to 7mm) and to align the dual-bead sights towards the target. Add its adjustable balance system, its sleek action and easy maintenance, and you will see why the A400 Xcel Parallel Target has conquered the 2012 NRA Bullseye award as well as the praise of serious trap- and clay-shooters the world over.


semi-automatic-actionBuilt on Today’s Most Advanced Semi-Automatic Action

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.


Extremely Low-RecoilExtremely-low-recoil

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.

 

DurableDurable, Easy and Quick to Clean

The A400 Xcel cold-hammer forged barrel is made of nickel-chromium-molybdenum steel (Beretta’s “Steelium”), a proprietary formula engineered for consistency, toughness and durability. The bore is chrome-plated to facilitate cleaning and minimize wear and corrosion. And the new Optima Bore HP choke tubes are particularly easy to remove--even after several thousands of rounds. Lastly, the new, improved gas piston makes assembly and disassembly a matter of seconds. All these are reasons why when your competitors see you approaching with the A400 Xcel’s telltale bright-blue receiver, they will know you have the absolute best--and they will know who the winner is.

Received gun not as advertised

 

Gun received does not have the magazine Cut Off function as shown on the Beretta website. Customer Service told me guns sold to the US do not have the Cut Off function. They called it the “domestic” version. They also acknowledged being aware of the misleading false advertisement on the Beretta website. I have a 391 Urika Trap grade...it has the cut off function which I use often to have an empty chamber. Customer service offered no help and their site still shows the Cut Off switch....falsely! If you have an issue do not expect anything from Beretta.

The best semi automatic

 

This gun handles as if it were part of your body. I can find no fault in his performance.
