R1 Big Game Rifles
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.
