After achieving several podium finishes at the last World Shotgun Championships with its unrivalled cycling speed, the 1301 Comp has evolved into the Pro version following the implementation of suggestions made by Beretta’s multiple medal-winning shooters.
With the comfort, stability and easy swing offered by the new stock, the ultra-fast, safe loading system, the new oversized cocking handle and bolt release lever, and its 10+1 round capacity magazine, the 1301 Comp Pro is now, even in its standard configuration, the most competitive dynamic shooting platform, but has plenty of capacity for further personalisation and is therefore very sought after by the most demanding of shooters.
1301 COMP PRO
The 1301 Comp Pro includes a new polymeric stock with the Kick-Off Plus system consisting of two elastomer dampeners complete with return springs, positioned near the rubber insert, which effectively mitigate the first recoil peak reducing the perceived recoil by up to 40%. A third elastomer dampener, located in the stock bolt, absorbs the impact of the slide against the stock, thus reducing the second recoil peak, muzzle jump and any vibrations caused by the movement of the slide.
The B-Steady system divides the stock into two sections: Butt and forearm. The recoil absorption point is in an advanced position, moving in unison with the forearm, which is free to move back leaving the butt stable and avoiding any annoying rubbing of the comb against the cheek. The cheek remains still and rests perfectly without ever losing the line of fire.
For more comfort, the comb comes with Soft Comb, a soft insert which is gentle against the cheek.
The rubber Comfort Grip improves sensitivity and pistol grip.
The spacers provided allow the drop and cast to be adjusted.
The MicroCore recoil plate ensures perfect shouldering and maximum stability when shooting and allows for the possibility to adjust the stock’s length to suit your requirements using the two spacers provided.
The ergonomic Comfort Grip forend, also made of polymer with a rubber insert, offers maximum grip even in poor weather conditions.
1301 COMP PRO
Extending out from the forend is the aluminium Tony System magazine tube which holds up to 10 cartridges. This is connected to the barrel via an aluminium clamp for increased stability. Inside the magazine tube there is a dedicated spring with an elongated red Ergal cap which makes it easy to check if the magazine is empty. The system is specifically developed for the 1301 Comp Pro to ensure maximum feeding reliability.
