Beretta A400 Lite Synthetic – 12ga
The Beretta A400 Lite Synthetic is a hunting shotgun that does it all–and that doesn’t mind playing hard and getting dirty.
After a demanding day upland hunting in the tall grass, waterfowling in the marshes or breaking clays at the range, the A400 is just as happy being tossed in the back of the truck for the drive home. It is not simply a black synthetic version of the A400 family, as it incorporates a boatload of special features like cross-tube piston giving you a 4+1 shot capacity, a new checkering pattern for better gripping, advanced recoil reduction, light weight, Optima HP choke system and the revolutionary smartphone-compliant Gunpod 2 to keep track of (and share!) your shooting activities. It is a workhorse–but a workhorse with an impressive pedigree.
With its Blink gas-operating system, the A400 is the fastest semiauto action on the market, capable of delivering 4 shots in less than one second. Just as importantly, its 3” chamber will reliably feed and fire different-purpose shells (2 ½” or 3”) from heavy-hitting rounds to light target loads. And as an all-purpose shotgun, it combines low weight (6.6 lbs) with low recoil, so that it can be easily carried around on the most strenuous adventures without ever being punishing on the shoulder. This is because it sports two advanced recoil-reducing devices–the Kick-Off system within the buttstock (which absorbs up to 50% of recoil) as well as a super-soft, no-snag Micro Core recoil pad.
