  1. So I ran an SLP for a number of years (basically wore it out). The SLP is a very well built and rugged duty type shotgun. Then I had the opportunity to try a demo 1301 at nationals and fell in love. The 1301 just seems to fit me very well but it is also lighter and quicker handling than the SLP, IMO. I have never shot any other shotgun as well as I can shoot the 1301. Try and find someone with a SLP/SX2 you can try and the same for the 1301 and go with the one that suites you the best . Best of Luck, Jeff
  2. MPX Triggers

    I have not heard of anyone else running a DIY JP trigger (not the EZ) in their MPX with the MPX hammer but I have been with out any issues other than when I first installed it I used KNS anti-walk pins and the hollow trigger pin bowed in about 1K rounds. I replaced that with JP anti-walk pins which are not hollow and it has been running great for about 3K rounds so far... It seems like I end up with a JP trigger in everything. Jeff
  3. Bolt vs Gas ammo.

    Burt, Hello, usually you can run a hotter load in a bolt gun of the same caliber than you can a gas gun. If your bolt gun load is pretty hot and you try it in a gas gun you may start blowing primers in the gas gun unless you have some way of delaying the bolt opening in the gas gun until the pressure drops some, (pigtail gas tube, reducing the gas with a variable block, etc.). I ran into this with some factory 6.5 CM ammo that worked fine in a bolt gun but same lot occasionally popped primers in a gas gun and had ejector swipes etc. Same with hand-loads you can usually run hotter in a bolt gun than a gas gun. Hope this helps. Jeff
  4. At this range are we allowed to drive our vehicle to the stages or do we have to park in a parking lot and carry gear to the stages? Thank You, Jeff
  5. Stealthy Thank You for the clarification. I had hoped that was the answer. Regards, Jeff
  6. Thanks Ming for the info. I don't see any mention of long range rifle in any of the stage descriptions so it is a little confusing to see it in the round count. Thank You, Jeff
  7. So what is this about Long Range rifle round count for MG Nat's? Are we allowed to bring a precision Long Range rifle? Is that expected? Are they just bonus targets? Thank You, Jeff
  8. Beretta 1301 Question

    John, were is your barrel hanging up in the re-assembly process? In the receiver? On the mag tube? Is the bottom of the barrel contacting the plastic tube and recoil spring? I just lock my bolt open and the barrel slips right in. More info might help someone steer you in the right direction. Jeff
  9. Slug problems

    Brian, Some people like to use fine bronze wool. Find it at your local hardware store and wrap some around an old bore brush and dry brush the area in the bore with the leading. It cuts the lead quickly and does not harm the bore. Jeff
  10. JP gas block set screw help.

    On similar gas blocks I have purchased an extended length stainless steel set screw that was long enough to run a jamb nut on it to keep it in place. I know some guys run lock tight on this set screw as well. Hope this helps. Jeff
  11. 1301 Endurance/ Parts Failure

    ffgats, I have been running a 1301C for about 2 years now and had my first parts failure on Saturday, at least it was the weekend before the match... The right side hammer strut broke right where it goes into the hammer spring. The left and right side hammer struts are different from each other and I am wondering if the right side fails more often than the left. Brownells has the right side strut on backorder but the left side was available I have 2 of each and the hammer strut bushing on order. The few Beretta service centers I have contacted did not have this part in stock either. This shotgun probably has about 3K rounds through it. The good news is a good friend was nice enough to loan me his trigger group for the match. So I will have hammer struts in my parts kit along with all the springs and the piston O-ring. Hope this helps, Jeff
