A400 Xplor Action: It’s the shotgun that counts

The new Beretta A400 Xplor Action is the first semi-automatic field shotgun to be equipped, as standard, with an electronic device which alongside other functions also counts fired shots.

Equipped with all the features that have made the A400 series such a success, it’s the semi-automatic you can use with absolute confidence regardless of game, ammunition, target or season. The gun’s versatility is increased thanks to the receiver which comes with scope mount grooves to accept optics or other aiming systems. From today, the A400 Xplor Action is the shotgun that counts.

GunPod: The Beretta onboard computer

The Beretta GunPod is a multifunction electronic device, a standard component which is housed in the pistol grip cap of the A400 Xplor Action and allows the user to:
  • count the total shots (not resettable)
  • count the partial shots (up to 7 resettable sessions)
  • measure the external temperature in Centigrade and Fahrenheit (thermometer)
  • test the ammunition fired.

GunPod allows you to compare two different types of cartridges, even when their load is equal.
The Beretta GunPod is a revolutionary device in as much as it counts the shots fired even without a battery inside or with a discharged battery.

The best recoil reduction system in the world: -60%

Kick-Off is the only recoil reduction in the world that uses two hydraulic dampeners very similar to those in automobile suspensions. All the other systems on the market are based on the deformation of soft materials like rubber, polyurethane or polymer inserts. The difference? Just think what it would feel like to drive your car on rubber shock absorbers!

A further step forward in performance. Soft, light and able to slide during shouldering

Micro-Core is an innovative recoil pad developed by Beretta thanks to its experience matured over decades on the competition fields around the world. Thanks to the open cell technopolymer, softer, lighter and more slippery than rubber, Micro-Core expands gradually and instantly, increasing its surface area on the shoulder and giving the shotgun secure and precise support.

36% faster than any other semi-automatic

The mechanism of the A400 Xplor is a true jewel of engineering that distinguishes itself from all other systems on the market with its exceptional cycling speed. Being the fastest to shoot followup shots means increasing your chances of hitting the target. With A400 Xplor even this is possible.

Reliable speed and unequaled performance

Blink is the new “engine” of the A400 Xplor, the fruit of the integration of the new Beretta gas system, the rotating bolt head lockup and a new feeding system. The new gas system features an innovative piston with elastic scraper band that also functions as a gasket. In this way, Blink is more powerful and much cleaner.

Steel technology...

Steelium is the production technology of the Beretta barrels that transforms the special tri-alloy steel (A) into an exceptional barrel, also due to a manufacturing process that is just as unique. Thanks to the deep drilling (B), cold hammer forging (C) and to the special vacuum distension (D), the steel acquires the ideal characteristics to offer the best ballistic performance available today.

...and steel performance

The special Optima-Bore HP geometry was conceived to offer the best performance, even with steel shot. The shot pattern remains perfect and uniform in every type of hunt, complemented by the use of the Optima-Choke HP choke tubes.

A400 Xplor Action

Shotgun design has never been so beautiful and functional at the same time.

From the fore-end insert to the trigger guard and over to the kick-off interface, each component of the A400 Xplor has been conceived to optimize form, weight and functionality.


Brown receiver: the evolution of the aesthetic

The finishing of the A400 Xplor Action’s receiver is an absolute innovation in the world of hunting shotguns and represents the union between the protective characteristics of anodizing and the exclusive brown-bronze color.
