Default Is there a reason the 2nd gen Berretta 1301 tactical SG is so light ?

I handled 1 about a month ago, and man that shotgun is really light weight..

I'm a thinking it's going to let you know you've fired it.. I've handled benelli's and was just surprised at the weight. It is a fast handling shotgun - I'll give it that..

The reciever is aluminum, just like a Benelli.
Also like Benelli M1/M2, it's recoil operated.

The story goes that Benelli and Beretta make parts for each other.
One of them makes the barrels for both of those guns and the other makes the recievers.

I'm probably confusing it with something else then.
I thought some of the first 1301's were recoil just like the M1.
Never mind me, It's the 1201FP I was thinking of...

I know this isn’t helpful, but I have a stoeger m3000 (benelli M2 clone) and every time I shoot it I’m fascinated by how light it is.

The 1301's light weight is one of its main draws. For a defensive shotgun, they anticipated people adding extended magazine tube and at the very least an ammo carrier and most likely a flashlight. With all these added items, and weight, it will still be a relatively light and fast handling gun, unlike the M4, which at times start to feel a bit on the heavier side if you add all the same accessories. I have no problems with the recoil on the 1301.

Beretta owns Benelli, and Stoeger. This allows them to be in entry-level, mid and high-end shotgun markets.

Beretta used to make all the receivers, but I don't know if this is still the case.

My 11 old daughter shoots my 1301t with a +2 extension and barrel clamp. Itís still light as heck and handles like a dream. Recoil just isnít too bad.

I can vouche for the 1301 Tactical also, this is my first shotgun ever. I ran light Target loads with zero failure. I was surprised recoil was super light also and the gun was accurate at 7 to 10 yards. I was landing on 9 to bullseye and one on the 8th mark out of 25 rounds. My model is the Marine Version.

Last year they also bought Chapuis, a French low/mid level shotgun and double rifle company.
