TRADITION AND INNOVATION
The Beretta UGB25 Xcel semiautomatic gun features an innovative locking system with break-open barrel that allows operation in complete safety during competitions. Unlike conventional fixed-barrel semiautomatic shotguns, this new type of locking system enables the shooter to move from one firing station to another without having to extract the chambered cartridge, simply by levering the barrel downwards*. The single barrel offers the advantage of maintaining the point of impact of the second shot exactly in line with that of the first shot, thus ensuring excellent performance.
SHORT BARREL RECOIL
The operating principle of the Beretta UGB25 Xcel semiautomatic gun with break-open barrel is based on short recoil, which keeps the internal parts of the gun clean even after prolonged use. The short recoil (and low barrel axis position) almost completely compensates for muzzle jump during firing, with quicker and easier re-alignment of the barrel on the target for the next shot.The low barrel axis position transmits the recoil forces in line with the shooter’s shoulder thus minimizing felt recoil. The perfect adjustment of the rearwards and forwards breech bolt travel allows use of all 12 ga. 2 3/4 ” (70mm) shotshells, from subsonic ones up to 1 1/2 oz (42g) cartridges without any modification.
The Beretta UGB25 Xcel features the unmistakable touch of Giugiaro Design.The ergonomically rounded back of the light alloy receiver fits smoothly into the stock, allowing quick and instinctive target acquisition.The polished sides contrast pleasingly with the other matte anti-glare surfaces.
The streamlined receiver and the newly-designed fore-end with its extended checkered configuration combine to give the Beretta UGB25 Xcel an extremely attractive look.
The cross locking bolt of the break-open barrel is located at the top, near the back.
On the left is the opening lever and on the right the cartridge carrier and the second cartridge feeding port. The ejection port is located underneath.
DOUBLE RECOIL DAMPER FOR BREECH BOLT
The two technopolymer recoil dampers of the breech bolt cushion its impact on the bottom of the receiver, reducing vibration and increasing the life of the gun.
SIDE FEED, BOTTOM EJECTION
The cartridge carrier receives the second cartridge on the right-hand side of the receiver, making it immediately ready for use. It is chambered automatically through the feeding port after the first round in the cartridge chamber has been fired. The design of the cartridge carrier button and its position on the receiver ensure quick and easy removal of the cartridge on the carrier. The ejection port is in the bottom of the receiver. The ejector expells the spent hull downwards, away from the shooter and nearby competitors, and is user-friendly for both right and left shooters.
OPTIMA-BORE® BARREL, OPTIMACHOKE® TUBES
All versions of the UGB25 Xcel come with an Optima-Bore® barrel with a lengthened forcing cone for enhanced pattern distribution sensitivity, reduced felt recoil and shot velocity optimisation. The internal shape of the Beretta’s Optimachoke® and Extended Optimachoke® tubes is designed to reduce shot deformation and to enhance shot pattern distribution and concentration.They may be used with steel shot cartridges.The aluminum alloy top rib is easy to remove and is interchangeable with others of different types and sizes.
