    It’s not meant to. That’s what the A400 was aiming to do.

    The gas system is essentially the same as the 390 series. The only differences are the “self cleaning piston”, the gas regulating spring is attached to the barrel, and the forearm on the A300 Outlander is slimmer. I’m excited about the idea of a 20 gauge A300 for waterfowl hunting purposes, but I will say the 390 Silver Mallard is the best 20 gauge autoloader I’ve ever shouldered. That includes the A400 my friend had that wouldn't cycle 7/8oz loads.

    The A-400 in 20 ga had some cycling problems.
    I SLIGHTLY enlarged the gas port and has been perfect ever since.
    People who sent their gun in had them “fixed” by having Beretta enlarge the gas port.

    yes, that surprised me as well and that's why my A350 kicks like a mule with 3 1/2 and fast 2 3/4 loads.

    Mine is just a field model I bought used probably 15+ years ago. It had a 26" barrel when I got it. I liked it just fine but I've always prefer a 28" barrel. I finally found one on ebay about 10 years ago. Now it's awesome!

    I have that same tee shirt. Sold it to the young lady that cuts my hair. She told me an ear would be lopped off if I bugged her one more time about buying it back.
