Introducing the Beretta BRX1, a groundbreaking large-caliber (308 Winchester) hunting rifle that showcases Beretta’s commitment to innovation and performance. With its advanced features and thoughtful design, the BRX1 delivers an exceptional shooting experience for hunters.
Equipped with a convenient straight-pull bolt, the BRX1 offers ambidextrous operation without the need for any tools. By simply reversing the bolt handle, left- and right-handed shooters can comfortably and efficiently operate the rifle. The straight-pull system allows for smooth and seamless reloading, requiring only two movements instead of the typical four with a traditional bolt.
Designed with safety in mind, the BRX1 features a rear-mounted safety switch that can be easily operated with the thumb. This switch offers three positions: The first position securely locks the trigger, hammer, and bolt, ensuring safe transportation and storage. The middle position blocks only the trigger, allowing for safe loading and unloading of the rifle. In the third position, the rifle is fully ready to fire, providing unrestricted access when needed.
Beretta has equipped the BRX1 with a durable bolt head featuring 8 lugs, providing reliable strength for standard calibers. For magnum calibers that release significant energy, the BRX1 boasts a bolt head with 16 lugs, ensuring the rifle can withstand the added force. Switching between different calibers is a breeze, requiring only the replacement of the barrel, bolt head, and magazine. The V-shaped bedding design provides a stable platform for the barrel and receiver, ensuring consistent accuracy even after changing calibers.
The trigger weight of the BRX1 is adjustable in three steps, allowing shooters to customize their experience with weights ranging from 950 to 1500 grams. The magazine, with a capacity for 5 cartridges, sits flush with the receiver when inserted and is easily visible thanks to its bright orange color. Additionally, the BRX1 features a removable Weaver/Picatinny mounting rail on top of the receiver, providing the option to install optics. The external M14 muzzle thread, complete with a thread protector, allows for the attachment of a suppressor for those seeking a quieter shooting experience.
Beretta has also prioritized comfort and durability in the BRX1’s design. The rifle is equipped with a polymer stock, a low-maintenance and weather-resistant material. The textured grip and forend ensure a secure hold, even in challenging conditions. The stock includes attachment points for a rifle sling, and the length of pull can be adjusted by adding spacers between the stock and butt plate, accommodating individual preferences.
