Benelli's R1 series rifles utilizes a combination gas and inertia driven system to operate their firearms. This ultimately results in less moving parts and great efficiency.
Most sporting firearms today differ little in terms of technology from those developed a century ago. That’s why the design team at Benelli set out to create something completely new, and succeeded with the R1 semi-automatic hunting rifle – a trim, fast-handling firearm with style to spare.
The R1’s action is based on Benelli’s innovative M4 military shotgun used by the United States Marine Corps. It incorporates the auto-regulating, gas-operated (ARGO) system adapted for use with centerfire rifle cartridges paired with a three-lug rotary bolt. The gas cylinder is positioned to allow for a short operating rod, resulting in less felt recoil than other rifles.
Astute observers will note the R1’s sleek outline somewhat resembles Benelli’s legendary Super Black Eagle shotgun. The free-floating, cryogenically treated barrel is mated to a sturdy steel upper receiver to offer outstanding accuracy and a secure platform for mounting optics. The lower receiver is anodized aluminum to reduce weight. The stock is select walnut and fitted with a unique recoil pad that is thickest where recoil is concentrated.
The R1’s ergonomic design seamlessly blends curves and angles into a masterpiece of innovative elegance as effective and efficient as it is pleasing to the eye, a harmonious uniting of form and function. See the Benelli R1 at your firearm dealer today to experience something completely new.
