Mesa SureShell - Beretta 1301 Side Saddle & Rail (6-Shell, 12-GA, 5½ Rail) Aluminum
There is a variety of specifics when it comes to the Mesa Tactical SureShell carrier, but let’s first begin with the clear differences between the two primary and basic models of the Beretta 1301 shotguns. Firstly, the 1301 Tactical model features a much shorter receiver which is consistent with its shorter chamber size of 3 inches. The 1301 Competition model of shotgun features a 3 ½-inch chamber which means it has a much longer receiver. Due to the differences in receiver size, means that the optics rail screw holes may be positioned differently, which means that there are two different versions of the Mesa Tactical SureShell Shotshell Carrier. This is why it’s important to always check which carrier and rail model you need for your Beretta 1301.
In this article, we will be focusing on the carrier and rail for the Beretta 1301 Competition shotguns. It’s worth mentioning that on the 1301 Competition Beretta shotguns, the SureShell carrier features a much longer rail segment due to there being no ghost ring sight, and it is able to mount securely to the receiver using just four screws.
