Over the Rainbow bridge...
- May 14, 2008
Having experienced multiple issues with my Mossberg 930, I sold it for a Beretta 1301 and haven’t looked back. Many of the 930 shortcomings are well-documented; like sticking shell catch, won’t cycling when damp, frequent cleaning, jamming when bolt/shell release button is pressed while lifter is down, etc. Some of these can be fixed while the shell-release problem is inherent to the design. I’m not sure if the 940 has addressed any of these issues.
Beretta 1301 has been a media darling for the past couple years and rightly so. As long as you stick to the Gen 2 version. The tactical comes with a 12” LOP stock although I’d recommend adding the Beretta .5” recoil reducing pad.
