NEW Beretta A400 XCEL Sporting | Gould Brothers

May 12, 2022

  
  

In early 2022, Beretta announced an updated version of the A400 XCEL Sporting. Steve did a full review on the Target Focused Life channel but we wanted to put it to the test Gould Brothers to see what this A400 Excel is made of.

 

In this video, we shot the A400 Excel Sporting in a lot of different ways to get a good feel for it. You can watch the video above or if you prefer to read, you can get a quick snapshot below of the A400 Excel Sporting and our thoughts about it below.

QUICK LOOK 

Steve has already done a review on this A400 Excel Sporting  (Check it out here) but here are a few of the highlights. 

  • MSRP is $1,979
  • 12 Gauge with the "Blink" gas system
  • 3 inch Chamber
  • 7 lbs 7 oz
  • Available with or without the Kick-Off recoil system
  • Length of Pull 14 1/4" Out of the Box
  • Oversized Controls
  • Adjustable forend cap weight

WHAT WE LIKED

Steve: 

  • Light recoil that comes straight back. 
  • Light trigger around 5lbs

Aaron:

  • Palm swell
  • Trigger
  • Light Recoil

WHAT WE DIDN'T LOVE

Steve: 

  • Have to push a button on the bottom side of the receiver to lock the bolt back.

Aaron:

  • The length of pull was too long out of the box, the fit wasn't ideal.

FINAL THOUGHTS

This is a very nice sporting gun, but if 14 1/2 length of pull is too long, you may want to consider a different option. This gun is smooth swinging and has very light felt recoil. The finished is beautiful but the blue bolt isn't for everyone. If you want a nice shooting semi-auto for sporting clays, the A400 Excel Sporting is certainly worth a look.

 

 

We get to pull the trigger and shoot for our dreams, but we realize it wouldn't be possible without our awesome partners and viewers like you! Thank You!

We shoot to thrill and REEDS carries it all, so you can too!

 Now pull that trigger and SHOOT for your DREAMS,

The Gould Bros.
