Most competitor’s autoloading rifles are based on design concepts that date back to World War II. The engineers and designers at Benelli started with a blank slate to bring hunters a trim, fast-handling self-loader with style to spare – the advanced R1 Rifle. In its general outline, the R1 resembles Benelli’s legendary Super Black Eagle. The upper receiver, steel for secure scope mounting, is threaded to the barrel, which floats free in the fore-end. The barrel/upper receiver locks securely into a lightweight, anodized aluminum lower receiver.

The reliability of the R1’s auto-regulating gas operated (ARGO) system has been proven in the US Marine’s choice of 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. The ergonomically designed buttstock and fluted fore-end are made of select walnut. The buttstock is fitted with a unique recoil pad, designed to be thickest where recoil is concentrated.

The R1 is a masterwork, an organic whole blending graceful lines with pioneering technology to produce a truly unique design in the world of high-powered rifles. When you encounter the R1, you’ll know you’ve finally seen something that is truly new under the sun.
