    Despite some horrendously suspicious difficulty in getting their BarclayCard interface to take my Visa card(s) without popping a fraud warning (that as such has proven unfounded, at least thus far), I finally tendered the sale and they got it to me faster across the Pond (seriously, four days via Royal Mail & USPS) than a lot of domestic gun parts shippers have managed.

    Only >.> part is that it came in *their* packaging and not a Beretta bag.

    Seeing as the part number page on Beretta's US store for the 1301 Comp and Tactical now defaults to the main page and searching comes up with a huge goose egg, I think this vendor is the only one currently selling the Pro Loader (they have both the 3" and 3.5" for the Comp) that I can find on the internet that doesn't say they're OOS or "on backorder." That's the only reason I overpaid for a piece of metal.
    I have a 1st Gen 1301Tactical and haven’t kept up to date with all the add-ons. Do I need this, and why?

    When the bolt is closed, this loader allows you to load the tube without having to worry about the stock loader pinching your fingers. It holds itself open to allow for dual and quad-loading like you'd find on a competition shotgun. If you don't think you need or want that functionality, you probably don't want this.

    And this showcases someone with the Pro Lifter installed ghost loading their 1301T: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FWaJbxGI1g

    I ordered the GG&G adapter to give it a try and installed it today. It is slightly thicker than the Aridus and you can see it, but when it's installed, you can't feel it. Or at least I can't. In a small way, it is slightly easier to install than the Aridus because of the buffer, which I believe is also the reason the adapter is slightly thicker. I'll explain. With the Aridus, the bolt that replaces the buffer has a blunt end rather than the "pointed" end of the buffer. Consequently, it can be tricky to make sure you've got it aligned properly and not cross threaded when you install the Aridus socket. Both adapters have a threaded end into which you install the buttstock bolt. You don't have a lot of room for the allen wrench to tighten the bolt and I'm guessing that the GG&G buffer is slightly longer than the Aridus bolt/socket and so the adapter body needs to be a little thicker. Just a guess.

    I did not have a chance yet to put any rounds through the gun with the Aridus adapter and consequently, I may have over-reacted to the battering issue. I'll get some rounds through it with the GG&G installed and if I'm happy, I'll sell the Aridus unit.

    I've gone from lean to overfull in a way. After months and months of trying to get the Aridus parts, I had some back orders suddenly come into stock at the same time. So I've got a second CROM mount that I'll sell for my cost ($140) and if I'm happy with the GG&G, a buttstock adapter (but not the stock).

    Thank you TCinVA I was hoping you’d post about this.

    Sent you a PM about the Aridus Crom.

YES I agree to remove the light but only after you get familiar with your setup and how it’s going to work
    Did you use loctite on the IWC? What torque?

    How do you determine the correct length of the generic spring that comes with the Nordic Extension?

    I cut mine to 16" above the mag tube, so far so good.
