I have shot an A300 Outlander for 3 seasons now and the gun itself has been flawless. My brother bought one a few weeks ago and we hunted dove together last weekend. No issues.
However, I am left handed and had the safety reversed and also have it shimmed for a left hand shooter. Last year when I was hunting doves, I was holding the gun across my chest and a dove flew in. I went to raise the gun and felt a tug - some resistance. I pulled harder and shot the dove. Then continued hunting. When we called it a day and got back to the truck I noticed that the bolt handle was gone. What the...? It had become snagged on my vest and when I raised it to shoot it pulled the bolt handle out. The Beretta A400 is incapable of doing that because of the design, but not the A300. When I got back home I contacted Beretta and they sent me a new one no charge. I don't blame the gun for this. I bought a left hand A400 this year and used it for backup. Both shoot great.
