    Thanks Cluster, I found your post and yes it appears we experienced the same issue. Apparently itís not a fluke one off but maybe a design flaw with the new Gen2 model bolt release design? Iíll PM the Beretta rep on this thread for assistance in getting this repaired.

    Anyways, thanks for fast and efficient help. Solid forum here!

I didnt know what to expect and thought I would have to buy the crom to be able to co witness with it, but it fit perfectly on the stock rail and had ghost sights perfectly in view inside the red dot sight. I will zero in the dot in a couple of days. I also bought a mechanism for the bolt release to stop it from emptying rounds accidentally and getting stuck in the loading bay. But I noticed my breach bolt release button looks different and doesnt allow it to happen without adding that after market mechanism. Has anyone seen one of these 1301 come with a breach bolt release like that from the factory? Does anyone else not use a crom to co witness with red dot sight?

    Cant wait to start shooting this!
    I like that reticle for a shotgun sight...that's pretty cool.

    He'll get you squared away as he's the associate Pro Shop product manager @ Beretta.
    Already sent a PM to Erik, just waiting on his reply. They took good care of Cluster so I'm not worried.

    On a side note I learned the hard way the Burris SpeedBead does NOT work on the 1301T. I thought it would make a nice co-witness optic...plus I had a spare FF3 sitting around. I purchased the version for the A400 Xplor as the stock is interchangeable with the 1301 so I figured it should at least mount up. It did. However, the angle at which the red dot sits is too "steep" to have proper sight alignment. Even if you wedged the front of the red dot up it sits too low. You only see the rear ghostring through the red dot. This could all have something to do with the fact I am running the Urbino, YMMV with the factory stock.

    Anyways, I figured I would share to avoid someone else the hassle.

    Now Iím a little bit nervous..

    You guys think ~350 shells of 00 buck will be enough to test for this issue?

    Edit: gun should arrive today.

    Generally speaking if there's an issue with a 1301 it shows up pretty early. If you run through 350 rounds of buckshot without experiencing a problem then you aren't terribly likely to experience one until you've shot it enough to wear out springs.

    The percentage of 1301's that manifest problems out of the box seems to be very, very tiny...especially compared to most other semi-auto shotguns. So I don't think you have much to worry about.

    Just picked up the 1301 tac.

    Mine seems to be 1.5 gen with the updated bolt release but no choke. I like that, as I hated cleaning the threads out on my comp model.

    Fitted the nordic tube extension but only managed to get 6 shells in there with about 11Ē of spring extending past the tube.

    A bit more snipping and I could fit 7 and itíll probably cycle the last round fine, but meh... just in case.

    I just used the OEM spring.

    The spring that came with the nordic kit seems a bit stiffer, but I ended up cutting it shorter than the oem and still couldnít get 7 in there. How short are you guys cutting the mag tube springs on yours?

    Interesting...I don't really remember how short I cut my Nordic spring, but I think I just trimmed it until I had no problem fitting the full number of shells in the magazine. I've fired thousands of shells through the gun set up that way without any feeding problems.

    Thanks to TCinVA I stopped being paranoid and clipped the nordic spring til I could get 7 in the tube, with a few milimeters to spare.

    Managed to squeeze in 200 of that estate 00Buck Iíve been stashing, in about an 1h10mins. Indoor range allows it at 7 yards so I work on shouldering quickly and doubles and triples, etc..

    One failure to eject at the 92nd shell, resulting in the spent hull locking the bolt back and wedging itself to the front of the ejection port.

    A generous gob of dirty lube was seen in front of the shell rim. I tend over lube my stuff, maybe it contributed who knows. Will reduce lube around the bolt head area.

    Used the push/pull technique and my shoulder feels fine. However, shouldering quickly with a loose hoodie on proved to be kinda inconsistent and my cheekweld wasnít perfect at times.

    A bruised jaw made the last box somewhat of a chore to shoot.

    The bolt release still works gud, so Iím happy.

    A ton of great information in this thread. Thank you to all of you that have taken the time to post and sort things out.

    Does anyone know how the front sight base of the 1301 Tac is held on?

    I called Beretta USA and they couldn't or wouldn't tell me.

    Basically, I am setting one up as a dedicated breaching gun and when I had the barrel threaded for the stand off device, the barrel was set back to just behind the front sight. I would like to remove the front sight block and reinstall it behind the stand off so I have back up iron's on it, but I need to figure out how to remove it without damaging it in order to do so.

    I appreciate any help on this.
