News reaches ShootClay of a new Semi-Auto 12ga Shotgun, designed with simplicity in mind at a price point that could lure many into getting a semi as a second gun.
From the guys at Beretta:
Made in Italy, In keeping with the Beretta tradition, the new A300 Outlander is a soft-shooting gas-operated semi-auto. The rugged A300 Outlander is elegant, yet efficient, sleek yet strong, with slim graceful lines which leave an indelible impression at first sight. With an SRP of only £930 it also offers fantastic value for money.
The A300 Outlander has been manufactured with a reduced number of components (five main assembly groups), which can be stripped for easy disassembly and cleaning. The new auto combines the reliable Beretta bolt with falling block (locked breech). The gun has an advanced gas valve with a self-cleaning cylinder and piston. In the shooting cycle excess pressure, caused by the most powerful cartridges, can be decreased automatically.
The stock provides superior comfort and a secure grip to ensure the highest performance during firing. The stock enhances the overall finish of the gun, being made of fine walnut carefully selected for its appearance, it is also hard wearing and weather resistant.
The Receiver has been completly and precisely machined from a solid block of special light alloy aluminium, with moveable parts made from steel and high quality light alloys. All metal parts are manufactured with special finishes which protect against, wear, tear and rusting. The receiver has been coated with a stylish matt black finish.
The trigger guard is made of heavy duty polymer, with a new semi-square shape making finger positioning easier. The trigger is chrome-plated for ultimate rust protection. The safety button is also newly designed, offering a wider surface for easy operation (and can be reversed for left handed shooters).
In alloy steel, made with the exclusive cold hammering process, the Mobilchoke® barrel is exceptionally robust and proofed for superior steel (Fleur De Lys) and lightweight at the same time.
The new A300 Outlander is available in 12ga multi choke (supplied with one choke) field version (3” chamber) with either 26”, 28” or 30” barrels, with an SRP of £930, a great semi auto package at an exceptional price. A real compliment to the hugely successful A400 series which starts at £1,420.
