Accokeek, MD (August 18, 2011)  Frigid rain, driving sleet, blinding snow and relentless salt spray—hardcore waterfowlers live to hunt in Xtreme conditions and so must their shotgun.  Beretta introduces the new A400 Xtreme, a go anywhere, know no limits shotgun that will dominate flyways for years to come.  Shipping now to waterfowling meccas across the nation, this new shotgun will rewrite the definition of the word Xtreme. 


The Xtreme shares some of the standard technological advances present across the A400 family of shotguns.  Elements such as the Blink® operating system that allows the shotgun to cycle 36% faster than any other shotgun, firing four rounds in under a second.  Steelium, the very best cold-hammer forged barrels in the world that feature Optima Bore HP® technology, delivering unparalleled reliability and ballistic performance.


The similarities end there, as the A400 Xtreme features the latest evolution of Beretta’s patented recoil reduction system, Kick-Off Mega.  Kick-Off Mega’s defining characteristic is not only its proven 60% recoil reduction, but the mechanism’s internal stock placement which virtually eliminates muzzle rise and any cheek movement on the stock as the shotgun cycles.  Coupled with Kick-Off3, and the Micro-Core recoil pad, the A400 Xtreme boasts an industry leading 70% reduction in recoil, keeping hunters in the field from dawn of opening day until dusk settles on the last day of the season. 


Chambered for everything from the lightest 2 ¾” 7/8 oz. shell to the heaviest 3 ½” magnum load, the A400 Xtreme fires anything it is fed, and with capacities of 4+1 (2 ¾” & 3” shells) and 3+1 (3 ½”) it is the perfect choice for any hunting situation.  Beretta’s exclusive Aqua Technology, a proven corrosion proof barrier protects all internal and external metal components, allowing hunters to rest easy as they hunt sea ducks on the coast, the waterfowl rich flooded timbers of Arkansas, or the wheat fields of Southern Canada, knowing their Xtreme is the most rugged and durable shotgun on the market today .  


These features combine to produce the Xtreme’s never quit, show no mercy attitude that will reign in the most Xtreme conditions imaginable.  Visit for more information on the waterfowl shotgun duck fanatics have only dreamed about.  Know No Limits—Go Xtreme.
