I've recently purchased a Beretta A-400 Unico with the Kick-off system. I've used the gun to shoot sporting clays and penraised birds with light loads, and one time to hunt snow geese with 3" steel mags. The gun has been a pleasure to shoot for the most part, but I've recently discovered what could be a serious problem. A few weeks ago I was patterning my gun for turkey hunting; I set a target at 30 yards and fired a 3 1/2" / 2 oz. / #5 shot / Remington turkey load with a full choke, and the recoil was quite noticable. Surprisingly the felt recoil was not a punishment to my shoulder, but to my cheek bone (anchor point). I didn't think too much of it and moved the target out to 40 yards. The result of the second shot was the same. I felt discomfort as a result of the 2 shots for a week or so. The gun patterned just fine so I've been turkey hunting with it, but haven't fired it since. Has anyone had a simlar problem with this gun? I'm blaming the problem on the kick-off system as it moves the stock approximately 1/2" back when fired, but I just don't know for sure.
