An exquisitely engraved styling pattern completes the nickel-plated receiver.

Whether you are looking to hunt with the lightest of dove or the heaviest of waterfowl loads, the new A400 Upland in 28 gauge allows the hunter to shoot with 3” magnum shotshells while still maintaining the reliable cycling that the A400 series is known for.

Keeping this shotgun as good as new after a long day on the field or at the range is quick and easy: you can field-strip the A400 Upland without any tools, and it comes apart in only five components that are a snap to reassemble.

This is a solid choice for bird hunters after upland game birds such as pheasants, quail, and grouse. The 28 gauge chambering is soft-shooting and small enough to minimize damage to usable meat. It’s an ideal gauge for upland birds but also an excellent option for the range and teaching new shooters who need less felt recoil.

Swing swivels are included with the A400 Upland, so it’s easy to add a sling to this shotgun, making it simpler to carry in the field. Beretta also designed the bolt handle and release in an extended style to facilitate manipulating even while wearing gloves. It’s made to be naturally pointable and to mount to the user’s shoulder smoothly. Overall, it appears to be an ideal hunting shotgun.
