Beretta 1301 Tactical

The enhanced Beretta 1301 Tactical is the newest iteration of Beretta's premier law enforcement and home-defense semi-automatic shotgun series. Engineered to be ultra-reliable and easy to use, this modern tactical shotgun features enlarged controls, a cold hammer-forged, back-bored barrel, and Beretta's ultrafast BLINK gas operating system with a cross tube gas piston that allows for 36% faster cycling than its competition.

1301 Tactical

Right out of the box, the new 1301 features an oversized charging handle, a large highly textured bolt release, and an oversized reversible safety button. These features make it easy to use in all weather or lighting conditions as your hands will always be able to positively and safely grip it and operate the controls. Also, the aggressive checkering on the forend makes it easy to gain a secure grip even while wearing gloves.


The 1301 Tactical features a robust, protected ghost-ring system with an interchangeable front sight, which gives the user the opportunity to adapt it to any use - no matter the conditions. An interchangeable choke system allows for maximum flexibility based on use and needs. An OptimaBore HP Improved Cylinder (flush configuration) is included with this package as well as a factory 7+1 capacity one-piece magazine tube (with correct 2.75" shells - certain shells may be beyond 2.75" in OAL and will reduce capacity to 6+1).

1301 Tactical

The stock is adjustable for length-of-pull with provided spacers to ensure that it will always come up naturally to your shoulder and point easily. Drop and cast are adjustable as well. For additional customization, the receiver offers an aircraft-grade, aluminum MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail that makes it easy to add optics with modifications to the shotgun.

This enhanced tactical shotgun features a cold hammer-forged, back-bored barrel that dissipates recoil away from the shooter's hand and greatly reduces muzzle flip.

1301 Tactical Shotgun OD Green


I love my 12ga 1301 Tac Shotgun. I go to Nevada to get training and I asked 3 firearms experts, what would be a good tac shotgun for me? They all recommended the Beretta 1301 tac shotgun. My stature: I am female, 5'6" and 130lbs., in my lower 50's and do not have a lot of upper body strength. The 1301 has a shorter barrel for home defense (less weight than a competition shotgun). I just finished my first ever 2-day shotgun class, and my Beretta 1301 performed beautifully. I love it. My Range Master was one of the experts that advised me to get this gun. I thanked him and I told him, I love it. I did change out the stock to a Magpul SGA it is better for smaller frame people with shorter arms (was recommended). I highly recommend an aggressive forward lean (bend over), pull the 1301 tight into your shoulder pocket and a shoulder pad. One of the firearms experts is a female, 4'11", 110 lbs, Bad#$% in her early 60s and this is the gun that she shoots. Come on Ladies, You Can Do This!

1301 / A400


i have been shooting the Beretta autos in sporting clays since the Beretta 303. To say the least I have fired tens of thousands of rounds through them. I currently shoot the Beretta A400. When I decided it was time for a home defense firearm the 1301 was my choice backed up by over 30 years of Beretta reliability !!! I love this gun so much I actually bought a second 1301 for another location. I AM A BELIEVER in Beretta reliability !!!
