Default Beretta A400 Extreme

I was waterfowl hunting today and shooting 3.5" loads. The trigger pin was getting pushed out and finally the endcap blew off! I just had cleaned it real good about a week ago so I don't think it was anything with the gas tube.

Anyone else have issues with this shotgun?

IB someone says you should have gotten an A300.

A A300? More like three of them for the same price

Ouf; Hopefully not something typical. I'd like to get into waterfowl hunting & the A400 (non-3.5") is at the top of my list.

A300 doesn't have the springs to make 3.5" feel like a .22lr so I'd rather buy an A400 ever season if I have to

Been reading online and others have had the same issue.

I got the new endcap from Beretta for $38 plus $26 2 day shipping and it seems to have fixed the problem. Will know tomorrow if it blows up, I guess

Which trigger pin?

End cap blew off? Did you screw it on and tighten it?

I constantly check two things while hunting (shotgun is unloaded and action open) - end cap and choke tube. I put a little anti seize lube on both.

Check out the clear finger nail polish idea from the link I posted above.

Can you post some pictures of the broken end cap? Would like to see what got damaged. Thanks.

Lol - I had the A400 with kick off stock. Not quite the kick of .22 or even close to it. No need to shoot 3.5 shells. A pump 12 gauge with a $40 Limbsaver recoil pad works for me.
