Beretta launched its A-400 “XPlor Action” semi-automatic shotgun in 2011, much to the hype and joy of hunters and shotgun shooters worldwide. Its class and unparalleled reliability blended with a mix of technology previously unseen in the shotguns market quickly turned it into the mainstay of Berettaʼs hunting shotguns line, and into one of the top choices in the world today when it comes to a selfloading shotgun for hunting or competition shooting.
Advertised as “the shotgun that makes the difference”, the A-400 “XPlor Action” has been launched on September 17th, 2012 in a 20-gauge version. The 20-gauge shotshell is an excellent and popular choice for those shooters seeking a good compromise between controllability, accuracy and effectiveness, and in fact most, if not all, of shotgun hunters worldwide will, at one time or another, possess a shotgun in this caliber. The 20-gauge shotshell will perform greatly in any hunting condition and against most of preys, and its chambering on the Berettaʼs A-400 “XPlor Action” shotgun will only make it perform better!
The 20-gauge A-400 “XPlor Action” shotgun features all the innovative solutions previously seen on the 12-gauge variant, including the “Kick-Off” recoil reducer and the “Gun Pod” replaceable battery-powered, totally programmable ballistic calculator integrated in the heel of the grip, which will act as a shots counter, as a thermometer to measure the outside temperature and help the shooter to assess the best conditions when itʼs about to fire the round that will make the day, and a cartridge pressure/power meter.
