Beretta A400 XTREME UNICO KO 3.5"

Can I get some opinions & feedback on the Beretta A400 XTREME UNICO KO?

The more I read about the , the better it gets.

I have been looking for a 12ga non wood but I need a 14" LOP. This is the first shotgun to have a removable 1/2" spacer I can remove & take it from 14.5" to 14" (I did confirm this with Beretta).

I will be using it for sporting clays also & from what I read, it shoots 2.75" 7/8 & 1's all day long with no issues.

Anyone have hands on with this gun?

I do.

Beretta sent me one to T&E about a year ago. I ran maybe 600 field loads through it.

At first, it choked a bit on light 2 3/4" loads. At the end, it cycled 7/8 oz, 1200 FPS loads nigh perfectly. Heavier loads, no probs.

Overall, a good shotgun.

Downside, the manual lacks directions for changing the shims. We figured it out, but it took a while.
