Rated 4 out of 5 by ggator Italians did it again
Italians known for their shotguns and this is no exception. Took some getting used to but first time out was literally a blast. Swings like a good song. Having several Berratas, Winchester, et al this one is the smoothest. Would have given 5 star but the safety placement is different for me and will take some getting used to. Also first time loading took some learning but phased through that quickly. Probalby will move it to 5 star once I clean and disassemble and put back together. The light weight, nice, especially if in the field all day. Noticed no problem with triger pull. Extremely fast action. Handles heavy loads like a breeze. The turkish walnut, beautiful. In fact you hate to use it but once you do you will get over that quickly...so buy another for looks.

If it hits your cheek then you are holding it wrong. This gun hardly kicks, because of the dampening system, which causes a slight ring when firing. Only gun on the market that cycles this fast, reliably with all loads, weighs nothing, and low recoil. However if you only need to shoot one load, and don't mind weight, then other guns may be more suitable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by squareclosedogs great purchase
I've owned the A400 for 18 months and have killed a lot of geese and ducks plus upland birds with it, so far it's performed perfectly with every thing from clay target loads to heavy Remington 3 1/2" shells.
The kick-off system works great, the gun handles well in all conditions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tim13 Do not buy!
Trigger pull very rough, recoil with the Kick-off directs the recoil to your cheek bone. After 15 to 20 shots you will be either flinching or lifting your head to get away from the cheek bone hit. This gun is light and rings with each shot as the action cycles. It can not compare with my old Berreta 390. I returned the gun as a used gun and had to buy a used gun to replace it. Very disapointing.
