The MicroCore Pad that came with my a400 Extreme lasted one season then began to disintegrate. It is flaking apart and is 1/2 its original size.
I admit that I wipe down the gun with an oil rag like I do my other shotguns before going into the safe. I store it barrel down in the safe. I had to replace the pad -which was very easy and the fit was perfect. Got the Field version in .79 which matched the original exactly. I suspect that the organic compounds (gun oil, solvents etc) caused the deterioration. But it is not something that I remember reading anywhere about avoiding contact to this area. Now I will put some Armor All protectant on the gelpad before storage to see if this helps prevent this from happening again. Would love to hear any suggestions. But Berretta was quick to ship the new GelPad - I ordered 2 just in case to have a spare. Otherwise, I love the gelpad feel when shooting/hunting. (sporting clays and doves). Great pad, easy to replace but ? reliability.
