Beretta has a new premium model in their flagship A400 Unico shotgun line, the Beretta A400 Xtreme Unico, which includes an updated hydraulic system called Kick-Off Mega.
Beretta’s Kick-Off system employs, amongst other things, a hydraulic recoil reduction1 system. In the original Kick-Off the recoil pad is connected to the stock by hydraulics. The whole stock moves back in relation to the shooters shoulder when fired. While this is effective in slowing down the recoil impetus, the stock moves against the operator cheek which some people may find uncomfortable. The Kick-Off Mega solves this problem by moving the hydraulic connection forward to just behind the pistol grip. Along with the Kick-Off Mega hydraulic system, the A400 Xtreme Unico also includes two mercury recoil reducers in the stock and forend.
MSRP is $1,600 for the black synth and $1,700 for the camo-stocked model.
More specifically, felt recoil. ↩
