The Beretta 1301 Handguard Assembly makes use of a modified Magpul Zhukov handguard adapted for the Beretta 1301 Tactical and Competition shotguns. The Zhukov handguard features M-LOK slots which can be used to effectively mount lights, slings, MatchSaverZ shell holder, and other accessories*. The hanguard comes with a stainless steel carbon shield installed to prevent carbon and gasses from reaching your hand through the M-LOK slots.
The adapters are CNC machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and Type III Black Hardcoat anodized to milspec thickness. The front adapter utilizes a spring plunger to prevent the front cap (or magazine extension tube) from loosening during recoil. The rear adapters, which are pre-installed on the handguard, interface with the receiver and use a portion of the rear M-LOK slot.
The 1301 Handguard Assembly requires no additional modification and is a drop in replacement right out of the box.
Note: For best results, attach your M-LOK accessories to the hanguard prior to installing on the shotgun. Take note of how many threads extend beyond the backing nut once the accessory is installed. Remove, and cut or grind off excessive threads. Reattach using threadlocker. Failure to cut or grind off excessive length of the screws could interfere with moving parts, especially the rear slots (long screws will interfere with the action bars and lead to reliability problems).
For mounting a sling at the rear M-LOK slot, we recommend the Impact Weapons Components QD Rotation Limited Sling MOUNT-N-SLOT found here. (The pictured QD Socket from Griffin Armament has been discontinued). This only uses one fastener, and therefore will work in the partial rear slot (most QD sockets require an entire M-LOK slot, which is unavailable at the rear due to the rear adapters.)
*QD socket and MatchSaverZ not included
