Didn't know Beretta offered the A400 in 28 gauge.

Franchi also has a really pretty 28 gauge semi-auto.

Uh oh. Another choice to make!

I have a really lightly used Franchi al48 deluxe model in 28 gauge 26 inch barrel choke tubes and the box. I'd sell for 800.00 $. Less than 150 rounds through it. I know that's not what you asked about but here's just another obtain if your interested. If there was still qual around I wouldn't be interested in selling it.

Has anybody seen or shot the A400 28 gauge?

A 28 gauge semi-auto is one of the things I was going to give myself as a bonus when my assignment in South Africa comes to an end....someday.

The Benelli Legacy is nice, but only holds 3 rounds (not a deal-breaker.)

The Franchi Fenice is beautiful. Its a fancied-up AL48 in 28 gauge.

But if the A400 has more features and is a better gun, it might leap-frog the other two on my list.

Jaquas has a few A400 28 gauge guns. They weigh next to nothing.

And the worst part is you'll have to chase down those expensive empty hulls.

I've got a beretta 28 auto on the way from Murphy's Guns in Kansas. They have the best prices IMO. I saw them in Vegas and they are lightweight beauties. A much better deal then the Benelli. I'll,post a test report when the snow melts a bit.

I never bought a Beretta because of the location of the safety, to the front of the trigger whereas the Benelli has it to the rear which I'm used to.

Well my Beretta 28 arrived from Murphys and it is a fine looking shotgun. The extra grain treatment makes it very appealing visually. 5 1/2 lbs and feels good coming to the shoulder.I'lll adjust the drop and cast to suit me and give it a go this Sunday. The gas system looks to much simplified over the 391 configuration. More later!!
