A400 Xcel: the Fastest, Lowest-Recoil Clay Buster
The 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.
Built 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.
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.
Durable, Easy and Quick to Clean
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. The bore is chrome-plated to facilitate cleaning and minimize wear and corrosion. And the new Optimabore 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.
A400 Xcel Multitarget:Today’s Most Versatile Competition Shotgun
The name of the A400 Xcel Multitarget says it all: it is a target shotgun designed for all three types of competition--trap, skeet and sporting clays.
It can claim this versatility thanks to its fully-adjustable design; this enables you to customize the way it mounts and its point of impact not only for different disciplines, but also for possible changes in clothing thickness, weight-gain or loss, as well as vision capabilities. Just as importantly, it offers such premium versatility at a price-point that puts it well within the reach of most shooters. So, if you would like a single shotgun that will break the highest number of clays in all three disciplines, you will simply love the A400 Xcel Multitarget.
Never the Wrong Gun
Whether you enjoy all three disciplines equally or haven’t yet committed to one, the A400 Xcel Multitarget will always be the right choice. Thanks to the Beretta B-Fast logic, the comb is adjustable with 4-way drop and cast regulation; in addition, a shim system makes it reversible from right- to left-handed use and the safety may be easily switched from left to right. The same B-Fast system enables you to adjust the rib to modify the point of impact depending on discipine, while the balance cap can be tuned to obtain your ideal point of balance.
Fast and Low-Recoiling
With the A400 Xcel Multitarget, you truly get a “jack of all trades, master of each one.” This is because the core of the shotgun and the technology around which it is built is not--and has never been--a compromise. The A400 action features Blink technology, which is measurably the fastest action on the market today. Capable of firing 4 shots in less than 1 second, it is 36% faster than any other semiauto shotgun on the market. In spite of its lively feel in the hands, this gun is also low-recoiling thanks to a kick-absorbing Micro Core recoil pad and the available Kick-Off system housed in the stock.
Hyper-Accurate, Consistent, Elegant
The Beretta proprietary Steelium barrel with its cold-hammer forged construction ensures accuracy and durability regardless of type of shot used. This perfectly-concentric tube is also outfitted with the Optima HP choke system, color coded to let you always know which choke you are using (3 chokes included). At the range, the A400 Xcel Multitarget will never fail to turn heads, thanks to its handsome walnut stock and trim receiver with an elegant and durable anodyzed silver finish. In short, this shotgun delivers features only found in high priced, specialized over-unders--in an elegant, affordable and incredibly versatile package that will give a lifetime of enjoyment.
