The 1301 is a newer Beretta design for serious shooters looking for a hard-use semi-auto shotgun that can go a long time without needing cleaning or maintenance. Thanks to the “Blink” gas piston system it has low recoil and a very high cyclic rate for extremely fast follow up shots.

Urbino stocks can be bought directly from Mesa Tactical for anyone having problems sourcing one locally. They’re offered with the three buttpad options, standard, SuperCell and Limbsaver with and without the cheek riser, ranging from $115 for the basic stock up to $170, depending on the configuration.

Shotguns shipping from Beretta with factory Urbino stocks are priced in-line with other Beretta 1301 shotguns with a small price premium, listing for between $900 and $1,000.
