Hi all, thinking of getting a A400 Exel. Does anybody know what there like shooting 2 1/2" cartridges . One of the grounds i shoot at only let you shoot with Hull comp x due to noise restraints and didnt know if i would get cycling issues.   Thanks

I have an Xtrema 2 Beretta which i believe has the same (or near enough) gas piston system as the 400 series,i ran 2 full boxes of Hull Comp  X 28gm 7.5's through it without any problems,i doubt you'll experience any problems,i also doubt you'll regret buying an A400,enjoy!

Any chance this is Lains shooting school 

I went there with my beretta a400 

And had problem on every stand 

sorry for the bad one but don’t want you turning up like I did to have to shoot one at a time

Hi thanks for the info and yes it is Lains. A long time ago i had a 391 which wouldn't cycle the Hull cartridges they used and wondered if the A400 would be better.I don't want to have the same problems so maybe stick to the o/u.

Just a thought,when cleaning your A400 do you pay special attention to the gas ports on the barrel,making sure they're not carboned up?,also,do you make sure the gap on the piston ring is positioned at the bottom of the piston when reassembling it?,sometimes small details like that can make a big difference to performance.

I always give it a good clean but with the piston part will have to look at this

Get yourself some carburetor jet cleaning brushes for doing the barrel ports,plenty available on the Bay,they do the job well enough when used with a good bore cleaning fluid.
