Beretta Xplor A400 Amazing New Shotgun

Home Page

Can you believe a new lightweight semi-auto 12 gauge with a whopping 60% reduction in recoil? How did they do it? Read more here and here and here.

Why the green receiver? Well, not a bad color for the receiver of a great sporting shotgun. Also, the receiver is made of anodized aluminum alloy that is lightweight and will not rust or corrode. I understand the Beretta engineers immersed it in salt water for a few months then took it out, cleaned it up and it worked fine. Cool. I need one of these. They say they will be in stores in time for Christmas. Expected MSRP about $1600.

“Uh, Honey, you know when you asked what I wanted for Christmas and I said I didn’t want anything? Well…uh…”

BTW, Beretta is the oldest manufacturing company in the world, founded in 1526.

UPDATE: Current issue of Guns & Ammo(February, 2010) has a main feature on this shotgun.
