BENELLI R-1 RIFLE .300 WIN MAG
Black Synthetic COMFORTECH Stock
Benelli’s R1 big game rifle
recently got bigger. The R1 is now available in .338 Winchester Magnum,
considered one of the most respected North American big game cartridges
that’s suitable for hunting large game like brown bear, moose and elk
and Africa’s largest plains game.
The Benelli R1 with ComforTech®
is currently available in .30-06, .300 Win. Mag., and the latest
addition—the .338 Winchester Magnum. No rifle in the world that allows
you to get back on target faster than the R1 with ComforTech®—just the ticket for hunting game anywhere in the world.
Pairing R1’s ComforTech®
recoil dampening stock with Benelli’s ultra-reliable A.R.G.O.
piston-driven system really takes the sting out of recoil. Imagine a
.300 Winchester Magnum that feels like you’re shooting a light .270 and
you’ll understand what this hunting rifle from Benelli is all about. To
put it more graphically, other high-powered hunting rifles kick about
twice as hard.
Auto-Regulating Gas-Operated (A.R.G.O.)
On August 4, 1998 Benelli delivered five shotgun samples
featuring the A.R.G.O. system to Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. The
guns were put through an intensive, grueling test for safety, function
and performance. Subjecting them to mud, sand, baking heat and extreme
cold, the guns beat out the competition to be chosen as the new U.S.
“Joint Service Combat Shotgun.” Benelli’s patented Auto-Regulating
Gas-Operated (A.R.G.O.) system has more than met the needs of the U.S.
Marines’ M1014 semiautomatic ï¿½ an ultra-reliable, battle-proven
The A.R.G.O. Piston-Driven System is also the heart of the
Benelli’s R1 and MR1 rifles, featuring simplicity, sturdiness and
accuracy, all packaged in an ingenious design.
Upon firing a Piston-Driven gun, single port, located just
forward of the chamber, bleeds gases where they are hotter and cleaner.
The results are less fouling and more reliable cycling. A short-stroke,
self-cleaning piston and two tappet pistons push directly against the
R1’s bolt body, eliminating the need for connecting linkages or heavy
action bars. Because the pistons push directly against the bolt, they
move only ½-inch for complete and rapid cycling with minimum vibration.
