One of the advantages of participation in competitions is that you can see the latest techniques and equipment used by other competitors.
This post is about very interesting new shotgun from Beretta. It is not yet available for purchase, but I had a chance to see it on the World Shotgun Championship 2012. Roberto Vezzoli, Champion of Italy in Standard division used Beretta 1301 Comp on the match.
Beretta 1301 Comp designed especially for 3-Gun and practical shooting. It has many features which make it one of the best semi-autos for competition shooting. And the best thing is that you can use it immediately after the purchase – all competition upgrades are already installed.
Roberto was very kind to answer questions about Beretta 1301 Comp shotgun. He was very satisfied with it. I’ve had a chance to see it and I want to tell you that this shotgun is great and ready for competition out of the box.
Beretta 1301 Comp has improved ergonomics such as oversized Safety, Bolt Release Button and Bolt handle:
These parts are usually upgraded by competition shooters. Now you have them improved out of the box. This is really good because you don’t need to spend money buying them and time installing them. Factory upgrades are really good and well thoughtout.
Beretta 1301 Comp Versions
You can get Beretta 1301 Comp with magazine extension installed.
Beretta 1301 Comp Magazine Capacity
Extended version is the best for competition and 3-Gun shooting. Magazine capacity is enough. Actually 10+1 would be better for practical shooting but this would make shotgun longer.
Another good advantage is that edges of the receiver in the shotgun’s loading port are extended to make it easier to load rounds.
Beretta 1301 Comp is really good semi-auto shotgun which was designed especially for practical and 3-Gun shooters. I am sure that it will be one of the most popular shotguns in Standard division in Practical Shooting and in 3-Gun matches. Beretta 1301 Comp will enable you to participate in competitions immediately after the purchase. You have all the must have competition upgrades installed from the factory.
