Thread: Beretta 1301 Tactical

    Beretta 1301 Tactical

    Looks like Beretta is reintroducing the TX-4 Storm, under the name "1301 Tactical:"

    Now that is interesting. I may need to re-visit the idea of one of those. Looks like a great shotgun. It sort of reminds me of my old SKB from the 80's that was a great tactical shotgun that nobody ever heard of.
    Just a Hairy Special Snowflake supply clerk with no field experience, shooting an Asymetric carbine as a Try Hard. Snarky and easily butt hurt. Favorite animal is the Cape Buffalo....likely indicative of a personality disorder.

    The predecessor, the Beretta TX-4 Storm (which looks almost identical) started to take off just as Beretta decided to discontinue it. I saw used ones fetch $2,000 +/- on Gunbroker.

    The TX-4 is simply the best semi-auto practical shotgun I have shot. Soft recoil, reliable, fast cycle rate, accurate, with far and away the best stock I have felt on a practical shotgun.

    GJM - have you been able to compare the new with the old TX-4 Storm to confirm its similarities?

    From perusing either Beretta forum or Enos, my understanding is that it is a rebadged TX-4 sold for a lot less money than the TX-4. The 1301 is the 3 gun model, and the Tactical is the personal defense model. There is a 20 page thread on Enos extolling the 1301. The TX-4/1301 Tactical is my single favorite defensive shotgun ever!

    One of the current tactical trainers was very impressed with this shotgun and did some posting on it, I can't recall where though. Comes standard with a nice short stock.

    It has a piece you can remove, to shorten LOP some, although I wish you could make it even shorter. The shape of the stock is fantastic. I still remember the first time I saw and picked up a TX-4, it was like "wow!" The 18 inch Beretta is lighter and feels much handier than my 14 inch 870's. This is the best shotgun going, that almost nobody knows about.

    I really want, nay, need a new shotgun. I'd like to try an auto...

    I wonder if this is based on the A300 or A400 platform? I have an A400 Extreme that I bird hunt with, it's a very, very nice shotgun.
