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 realignment 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 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 streamlinedreceiver and the newly designed fore-end with its extended checkered configuration
combine to give the UGB25 Xcel an extremely attractive look.
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 expels the spent hull downward, away from the shooter and nearby competitors, and is user-friendly for both right- and left-hand shooters.
