Beretta 1301 tactical semi-automatic shotgun is a new multi-purpose shotgun, developed by Beretta for home defense, sport shooting and security service use. With correct ammunition it also can be used for hunting.


Beretta 1301 tactical semi-automatic shotgun is a gas operated weapon with annular gas piston, located over the magazine tube which runs below the barrel. It features Beretta’s new BLINK fast-cycling self-adjustable gas system which operates rotating bolt. Receiver is made from aluminum alloy, furniture is made from polymer. Shotgun is equipped with enlarged controls (safety button at the base of the trigger guard, bolt handle and bolt release button). Tubular magazine can hold only 4 rounds in basic configuration, but magazine extenders are available as after-market options. Polymer stock with semi-pistol grip is relatively short, but shotgun is sold with additional butt spacers that can be used to increase length of pull, if required. Standard sights include protected front sight and aperture type (ghost ring) rear; additional sighting equipment such as Red Dot sights can be installed onto Picatinny rail that is mounted above the receiver.
