BENELLI R1 BIG GAME RIFLE
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.
R1 A.R.G.O. System
The reliability of the R1’s Auto Regulating Gas Operated
(A.R.G.O.) system has been proven in the M1014 military shotgun and has
been adapted for centerfire rifle cartridges with a three-lugged rotary
bolt. The rifle’s gas cylinder is positioned just in front of the
chamber allowing for short operating rods and reduced recoiling mass.
