  • Beretta 1301

    Well my Mossberg JM930 finally broke after approx 2500 rounds over the last 2 years. Happened at FN 3Gun Nationals on the 2nd stage. It is being repaired but while I had the opportunity I picked this up,;1414610210862

    I ended up shooting a friends 1301 the rest of the match, loved it. Gun is set up real nice right out of the box. Other than adding a mag extension and changing the front sight to a new longer Hi Viz. The latter does not need to be done just help these old eyes. I shoot Open Division now and the gun currently is set up to hold 14 rounds.

    Update as I run more rounds through it, have about 300 through it so far.

    Nice! Those Eye-talians make a fine shotgun.

    It's knowing that when I get up in the morning and my feet hit the floor, the Devil says, "Shit! He's awake!"

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

        What happened to the Mossberg? How "broke" is it? Is it fixable or destroyed?
        That's bad news if a new shotgun only lasts 2500 rounds. I've shot that many rounds in two days in Argentina hunting dove.

            Looks nice!

            The last L.E. department I was with, many moons ago, switched from 870's to Beretta semi's (don't remember which model though).

            I think this decision was based on our public safety director being buddy-buddy with some big-wig in Indian Head, Maryland at the time.

            I am a fan of the Remmy shotties buy I have to admit, I did like the Beretta and did not experience any issues and we (the instructors) didn't exactly treat them as collectors items.

              The pin that holds the bolt release captive worked it's way out. There is a small clip that should hold it in. When that happened the bolt jammed. I was able to clear after the stage, but was not able to fix on site. It may get some pinning or a small bit of threading with allen screw inserted once I get the parts.
