I love mine! Great balance and feel. Beretta did everything right on this gun. AsI shot sporting clays with a person shooting one at a sporting clays shoot last week.
He had it set at 50/50. Didn't shoot it well, but not the fault of the gun.
Guess it depends on your personality if you want to mess with settings.
I have the A400 without the KO system and it fit me right out of the box and shoot it for both sporting and trap. On the board it's shooting 50/50.
If you get the KO system you can't cut the stock, nor I'm told can you install an adjustable comb.
Trigger "feel" is very subjective. As far as the polymer trigger housing isOh, and when I mentioned to a Beretta rep about people's complaints in regards to the lousy trigger, his exact words were "triggers don't matter on shotguns".
I told him that he could use that line on the waterfowl crowd, but don't you dare say that around Trap shooter!
If your going to shoot doubles look for another gun.I know 2 people who had them for about 3 weeks. Both got rid of them for a couple of reasons. Bad triggers, and when they shot doubles trap the shell when all over, so no one wanted to shoot with them. They said if they just shot 5 stand they could live with them.
The LOP on mine with the Kick-off is 14.25. The kick-off seemedFrom the factory the lop is 14 3/8 with I believe a .71 pad. You can purchase another factory pad which is a 1.11 which will get the lop out to about 14 3/4.
If you need to shorten the lop you can go down to the .51 pad.
A gun stock guy might be able to shorten the stock and refit the kickoff however not sure about that. I believe you would be limited there.
The kick off works fine and I have no complaints.
To me the trigger is not the best but is no worse than the 390---391--or Fab gun.
I currently own the new Beretta and have owned the Fab gun, the 390 & the 391. All of them have there good points and bad points
