Has anyone else seen the new Benelli Mr1?

Recommended Posts

Guns & Ammo's current issue has the MR1 as the cover gun and the feature article.

 

Quite a nice looking gun; Specifically NOT an AR, but within the general design idea. The gas system seems similar to the R1 however the article likens it to the Benelli shotguns. Either way, it's an exciting take on the "black rifle" family. But that's just MHO.

A quite different take on the AR pattern, and yes, I also think its internal design is much like the R1.

 

It's priced right for the AR market too. If I decide on a "full size" AR style gun it'll be on my short list (just now I have an S&W M&P15-22).

Saw one locally yesterday. Don't recall the price but it was over $1000. Looked nice but I'd much rather have a standard style - non pistol grip.

Oh yeah....about 30 minutes ago. Went into my firearms dealer of choice here where I live and there was one on the rack. Man!....very nice weapon!....delayed buying that RRA AR15 I had made up my mind to buy.

 

This is one sweet weapon....just like the shotguns. This one was priced at $1080.00.

 

Can anyone tell me what the shot accuracy of this is out to say 600 yards?

Ok Tex, you are obviously a subject matter expert...so tell me, what would you think the max effective range is on this?

What kind of groups are you looking for at 600 yards? I bet you can get maybe 1 MOA at 100 yards MAYBE!!.

Close to any other .223 with a 16" barrel.

Bought one today. I have looked at, researched and shot many AR's and Carbines. I have been in the market to purchase one for about a year. I could not make up my mind on what to purchase until I saw the mr1 at a local privately owned sporting goods store. Loved the way it looked and felt in my hands. Researched it on line and in 2 days I went back to purchase it.Took it to the range and strait out of the box with factory settings on sights I hit an ***** at 100 yards. Exactly what I was looking for. A great home protection weapon and fun to shoot at the range. Comes with a 5 round Mag. I plan on purchasing a 30 round mag this weekend and go back to the range. I love it.
