SHORT RECOIL OPERATION

The operating principle of the Beretta UGB25 Xcel semiautomatic gun with break-open barrel
is based on short recoil operation which keeps the internal parts of the gun clean even after
prolonged use. The short recoil operation (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 use of special friction spring rings on the barrel sleeve allows
the heat dissipation of part of the barrel kynetic energy thus reducing the stress for the parts
and enhancing the gun life. The gun has been designed to fire all 12 ga. 2¾ in. (70mm) factory

HAND POSITION INDICATOR ON THE FORE-END
In front of the ejection window port, a protrusion indicates the correct position of the hand on the
fore-end during firing to prevent contact with the hulls as the spent cartridges are ejected.

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.
