After shooting a Beretta Xtrema 2 this past season, I can heartily recommend this great semi-auto that has a recoil reducer in the buttstock, and when coupled with Beretta's optional Kick-Off, makes shooting heavy loads a breeze.
The synthetic stock has a slimmed pistol grip and both it and the narrower fore-end have rubber inserts for a firm grip in foul weather. The Xtrema 2's gas system functions with 1 1/8-ounce target loads to 3 1/2-inch magnums. For a shotgun, the trigger is particularly crisp and light. The Xtrema comes with five extra-long choke tubes, stock adjusting shims and a hard case.
