I am finding on the web that we have a NEW Beretta semi-auto called " A300 Outlander", but no other details.
Any one knows anything about this new shotgun ???

The original A300 was made back in the 60s-70s, forerunner to the whole 3XX series.
I do see the gun you are talking about though, certainly looks current, maybe another version of the 391 for the Euro market.
We will probably never see it in the US.

Yes I have the old one made in 1969, and love it.
This one seems a newer model with a different gas systems like the 391.
Well I guess we have to wait and see

Looks to be a non US model only. It also looks like it could be an slightly updated 3901. There is no bolt lock lever on the left side of the receiver. I also don't see the gas vent in the forny of the forearm. Could also have the AL391/Urika2 gas system and made as a less expensive model.

Blue and walnut in this day and age; how can you paddle a boat with it? It also appears to have scope base recesses milled into the top of the receiver. Interesting.

Mike Yardley wrote, "It's a completely new Beretta auto-loader - the Outlander - part 303, part 391, part A400 (no rotary bolt head). Handles exceptionally well too and will be very competitively priced"

I only wish you could get something like the old Beretta 303 SS with a 32" flat rib 10mm rib barrel - Bob Brister and I both loved that gun. I still have a pile of 303s. There is a new 32" Beretta semi-auto sporter on the way for the UK market at least

Looks like an up to date 303. Can't wait to shoot it.

It appears to be a 391 with an A400 gas valve, no magazine cutoff, and with fit and finish designed to keep the cost down. It was announced at the Shot Show this week that it will be available in the US.

The A300 Outlander appears to relate to the A400 the way the 3901 relates to the 391: it is based on the previous model, and sells for a lower price. i.e., it is a downscale economy model.

I want one!

I want one as well. Kinda like a "newer" 3901 as Seamus points out. Count me in.

Hello all -
I wanted to let you know that we're finally introducing the A300 Outlander to the USA.
The gun will retail starting at about $700 and, best of all, it's made in America!
Here's our overview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTIGeoZ82FY

I tested it a couple of months ago. It handles like an A302, in fact that is its strongest asset. It is simple, no frills of the Stonecoat etc ilk, and it is low cost. Though not as low as in the USA, no way a Beretta will sell in Europe for 500 Euro, which is about 700USD. The price I got was in the region of 800 Euro. Why American manufacturing would lower the price is a puzzle, I thought American labor costs were higher than European costs.

Benelli has also come out with low cost, plain finished model designed for "hard times". The price is in the same league as the A300.

Now let us see if the styling people will see their way to offer a ribless barrel. It will improve handling no end, simplify maintenance and lower the cost, all in one fell swoop. There used to be a ribless 302 barrel, and it worked so well!
