The Beretta 1301 Tactical Gen 2 is a semi-automatic shotgun specifically designed for tactical and self-defense purposes. Building upon the success of its predecessor, the Gen 2 version incorporates various improvements and enhancements to deliver a reliable and high-performance shotgun.
The 1301 Tactical Gen 2 is chambered in 12 gauge, a widely available and popular shotgun caliber known for its versatility and effectiveness. It features a gas-operated system that reduces felt recoil, allowing for faster follow-up shots and increased control during rapid fire.
One of the notable features of the 1301 Tactical Gen 2 is its enhanced ergonomics and user-friendly design. It boasts an oversized charging handle and bolt release button, making it easy to manipulate the shotgun under stress or when wearing gloves. The enlarged controls contribute to swift and efficient operation, particularly during reloads and malfunction clearing.
The shotgun is equipped with a robust and durable barrel that typically measures around 18.5 inches in length. The shorter barrel length enhances maneuverability in close quarters while still providing effective range and shot pattern distribution. Additionally, the 1301 Tactical Gen 2 often features a robust and adjustable ghost ring rear sight and a fiber optic front sight, facilitating quick target acquisition and enhanced accuracy.
Beretta has incorporated a variety of stock options for the 1301 Tactical Gen 2 to suit different shooter preferences. These stocks may include a fixed or collapsible design, with the latter offering adjustability for length of pull and comb height. The adjustable stock allows users to achieve a comfortable and customized fit, improving overall shooting performance.
The 1301 Tactical Gen 2 also incorporates a Picatinny rail on the receiver and forend, enabling the attachment of various accessories such as optics, lights, and lasers. This allows users to customize their shotgun based on their specific requirements and preferences.
