BENELLI R-1 RIFLE .30-06
REALTREE APG 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.

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.
