First to reduce recoil as much as possible so that even a long session at the range will not tire you and leave you sore. Secondly and thanks to the type of polymer of which it is constructed it is engineered to flow smoothly to your shoulder without snagging or catching as many rubber buttpads do. - Blue Receiver - Blue is not only the traditional color of the Beretta brand. On this shotgun it also serves as a warning flag to your competitors here comes the best-designed clay-busting semi-auto on the market along with a shooter who was discriminating (and ambitious) enough to choose it. Giving the shotgun a cool updated look the blue receiver will never leave your friends wondering what type of gun youre shooting. - High Speed Mechanics - The A400 Xcel 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. This means that youll already be reloading while your friends watch that second clay fly farther and farther away from them. - Balance Cap - You see it fly you break it this is the ideal mindset of a sporting-clay shooter. But for this to be the case the shotgun must balance perfectly--which means it must do so for you and your body type. This is why Beretta has added the balance cap as a standard feature three interchangeable weights allow shooters to achieve that perfect point where the shotgun becomes an extension of their body. And an anodized finish on the balance cap protects the system from the elements allowing the shooter to compete anytime anywhere. - Cold Hammer Forged Barrel - No matter how great a shotguns action and how impeccable the balance the shot must first travel through the barrel in order to make it to the target. So the more perfect the geometry of the tube the more consistent and predictable the shot pattern. Berettas cold-hammer forged barrels are designed and painstakingly manufactured to offer this kind of precision as well as the durability to match. - Steel Performance - Whether you use steel or lead shot the Steel Performance feature on this shotgun ensure minimum-to-none shot deformation. This is because the elongated forcing cone (together with the OptimaBoreChoke system) gently funnel the shot rather than abruptly forcing it into a narrower cylinder. - Optima Bore HP - Optima-Bore HP choke geometry was conceived to offer the best ballistic performance available with steel or lead shot. Thanks to its design shot pattern remains perfectly uniform whatever the shell size or load giving you consistency and accuracy on the hunt. Optima-Bore HP choke
