Expanding the famed Italian company's A400 line for migratory bird fans, Beretta now has added a new 28 gauge model to the autoloading shotgun's family.

Complete with a stylized nickel-plated receiver and chambered for 3-inch magnum shells, the new gas-operated A400 Upland in 28 gauge gives users options from light dove to waterfowl loads. With an ergonomic forend and a straightforward design known for reliability, the new model comes standard with an extended bolt handle and release.

It ships with three OPHC flush-mounted chokes and uses a 28-inch vent ribbed barrel set in wood furniture that includes Beretta's "Kick-Off Plus" system, which promises up to a 50 percent reduction in felt recoil by the shooter. The storied gunmaker says the model uses a reshaped receiver and slimline forend.

The nickel-plated receiver carries an engraved styling pattern with prominent "28" markings. It seems a little "Grip-Zone" to us, but, if you need to flex in the field that you run 28 ga instead of something easier to find, this may be the shotgun you've always wanted. (Photo: Beretta)

The new Beretta A400 Upland 28 is now shipping and has an ask of $1,829. It expands the company's offerings in that gauge to three, including models of the 686 Silver Pigeon OAU line and the previously-announced A400 XPLOR
