The patented Micro Core buttpad on the A400 Lite Synthetic gives you exceptional softness while easily sliding to your shoulder when you mount the gun--without snagging on your clothes, regardless of material.
S Grip Checkering
At Beretta, we believe that form follows function, and it is along these lines that we have designed a new "S Grip" checkering pattern. This gives you a positive purchase on the stock (even while wearing gloves) plus the ability to easily wipe it clean with a cloth, without needing a brush to get mud completely off. Cool-looking and easy-maintenance, just the way you like it.
Adjustable Shim System / Reversible Safety
A shim system that comes as an accessory included with the shotgun enables you to adjust the stock for drop and cast, meaning that you can turn the gun into a true extension of your body, as well as make it left-handed if you need to. For that purpose, the safety is also user-reversible without any gunsmithing.
The A400 Lite Synthetic gives you a 3" chamber, but you are not confined to shooting 3" shells only. Its action is designed to feed reliably any sort of shell from 2 3/4" to 3" and from light target to magnum hunting loads. Oh, and you can feed this shotgun steel shot all day long, since the action and the barrel are engineered to last a lifetime.
Blink Gas System
The revolutionary Blink gas-operating system gives you all the advantages of an inertia-operated action, plus the capability of shooting 4 rounds in less than one second. This concept has truly changed the gas vs. inertia game, also giving you faster follow-up shots than any shotgun on the market as well as a self-cleaning piston that requires very little maintenance.
The cross-tube piston gas-operating system of the A400 is designed to feed positively regardless of load used. Skeptics used to shoot recoil-operated shotguns are amazed by the A400's ability to flawlessly cycle even the lightest target loads.
Beretta Optima-Choke HP tubes are designed to give you accuracy and durability. Manufactured from high strength steel and finished in a nickel-alloy coating, these chokes guarantee significant corrosion resistance and have the ability to withstand the rigors of steel shot.
