    wow, isnt 1500 cheaper than the regular version? and if this comes with the kick off system as it shows in the picture this could be a steal as im sure real world price might be less than 1400. i’ll have to keep my eye on this

  • it is amazing shooting gun i like it!!!!

      Hi there..
      Just got the a400light 28″. Went duck shooting twice. Shot about 200 shells, no hiccups. Its obviously very light. The reason I bought it is I have a problem with recoil. It used to take me a while before I recompose myself for a second shot, it was no problem with this gun. I used 2 3/4 shells 34 gramms and have not tried it with 3″ shells yet. I tried several shotguns before ( old ones), this one seems the best so far , it swings nice and most importantly gain with no pain even after lots of shooting.

    I just got back from pheasant hunting with the new Xplor Light. I have no complaints. Its very light weight and easy to carry all day. For how light the gun is I couldn’t believe how light the recoil was. I bought the 28″ version. The gun comes up nice and swings great.
    The wood and receiver having a dull finish is going to take me a while to get used to, but other then that I’m very happy with the gun. I would highly recommend buying if you’re in the market for a new auto.

    WOW!!! This is probably the most beautiful shotgun I’ve ever seen in my life!!! +1 to my collection, and I’m sure of that!!!!

  • If you are looking for the A400 XPLOR Light. I have priced the gun at several dealers in Houston. I have found the best price in Clute, Tx, for $1250.00 at AJC Sports Shop. I have purchased several guns in this store and they have beat every dealer every time. I plan on purchasing one next week for my 11 year old who shoots competition sporting clays.

    I’m curious if those with the a400 xplor light have the kick off system or not? Trying to decide if I would need it?
