Beretta 1301 Comp

Recommended Posts

He did it so I'm not sure. When I unpacked it at first I thought he forgot to open it up - was expecting it to be polished like my JM

Intense, can you show another shot of the front of the loading port above the follower? I can't quite see how/if he recontoured that portion.

thxs!

I'll grab some later tonight. Before, I was having issues with shells jamming during strong side twins ... No problem now. If I flip the gun and do weak hand twins I am getting shells slamming into the lip above the tube. Not sure what could be done to fix that. At least my wife doesn't have issues and its her gun!

With the weak hand, come in at a steeper angle and keep your hand pressed down on top of the load port...

Beretta 1301 with opened up loading port and c-rums extended lifter.

The backside of the handguard was beveled a little to take the edge off for dual loading.

Thanks for this. I did not even think that they would make prefit pads for Beretta. I ordered the Limbsaver 10702 off of amazon, I think it is the correct one that you are talking about. The 10701 seems to be the 'larger one' that you are speaking of.

It would be awesome if this fits it perfectly! I was trying to justify buying a benchtop sander from harbor freight and the miles jig off of midway!

We put a Limbsaver on my wife's 1301 ... They make 2 for the Berettas. We are using the "smaller" of the 2 options as it was the only one Cabelas had in the store and happened to fit. Don't remember the exact size but you will figure it out :-)

Those of you running a 21inch model i have jumped in and ordered one. What is the most common mag length on the 21 inch you guys are running? Cant decide between +3,5, or 7. leaving towards 5.

I am running a +4 with a +1 cap from the shooters source. I can easily load 2 after the beep

Figured I would throw a couple pics in of my modded loading port and C-rums carrier. Loads quads great.

FYI everyone, I got the limbsaver 10702 recoil pad in and it fits VERY good!

It will be a couple weeks before I can use it but I am expecting great things. (I was running the limbsaver 'medium' slip on and it was very comfortable to put 300 rounds through).

That is one aggressively 'hogged out', but sexy looking, 1301 :bow:

Neomet -that looks awesome! I may get there, but I'm worried about the follower getting loose. Nice work. How did you get the final polish?

Very NICE Neomet!!!!

The 1301 quad loads pretty good huh?

I have been "lurking" for a while :ph34r: ....trying to pick between an M2 and a 1301 to replace my 15 year old 11-87........I really appreciate all the info you guys are sharing!

I was wondering about quad loading a 1301.....anyone else try quad loading the 1301?

Thanks Dave. For me, opening the port up was critical. I didn't do so well with the stock opening. Could just be me.

Well, I figure if I could use the load two method on an 11-87, then anything without that carrier release has got to be easier! Plus it looks like the 1301 has only a little bit of overlap on the receiver - about 2/3's less than my 11-87.

Yea - it looks like port opening is a must!....Nothing like buying a $1000 gun and hacking it up before you even shoot it!

At the front it looks like you got real close to the follower but you didnt angle the front of the port towards the follower.......any reason for that?

Do you think it would be advantageous to re-contour the front of the loading port? To re-phrase - kinda do a valve lap job so that the rounds catch and stay in if you hit the follower?

It actually is angled into the mag tube and that is a dang important part of the exercise. :-) If not the second round in tends to hang up on the front of the port.

Cool- thanks for clearing that up for me!

Gonna look at one tomorrow and maybe "pull the trigger" on a 21"

If I get one I'm gonna tweak it myself and your pics/posts will make it easy for me to grind it up! :bow:

Gentle as ye go mate. :-) The difference between a nicely opened up loading port and turning your receiver into an expensive and clumsy paperweight is small. My photos are at an angle so I wouldn't use them as a guide. I'll take a couple more and send them to you via PM. Also take a look at Red Neck Tactical's FB page which has pics that I used as a guide for the front of the loading port.

The other caveat is I am a lefty so stronghand load from the"wrong" side. You can not drop the ejection port side of the receiver down far at all as the serial number was obviously located by someone who loads traditional weak hand.

Check out the modified 1301 on The MOD1 FB page.

Link? I get nothing shotgun-related when I search for Mod1 on my phone.
