POTD: Beretta 1301 Tactical Gen2 and Beretta APX

    Since 2014, TFB has been publishing the Photo Of The Day (POTD) series of daily articles and many great photos and stories have passed over the years. Today we have a mixture of firearms from Italy: The Beretta 1301 Tactical Gen2 in 12 gauge and the Beretta APX in 9×19 mm, all in FDE.

    Schrombo, the author of the photo says:

    When you’re going after those pesky, yet elusive zombies, that’s generally no excuse for lack of style or lack of a theme for your equipment
    So here you go: meet my new Beretta 1301 Tactical 12-gauge semi-auto shotgun and the matching Beretta APX 9mm pistol. Because FDE everything
    And I think that I may have found my new personal favorite shotgun! The Beretta 1301 (this is the Gen2 that does away with the Gen1 shortcomings) is short, lightweight and has a gas system that works with every kind of ammo you can throw at it. Then it comes with a short picatinny rail for mounting the red dot sight of your choice in addition to a very sturdy and fully adjustable ghost ring sight. All controls (safety, bolt release and bolt handle) are oversized and easily manipulated even when wearing gloves. The stock has a rather short LOP, which makes it perfect when wearing body armor. And it’s available in FDE.
    I will add an Aimpoint Micro using an Aridus Industries cowitnessing mount and have already ordered a Nordic Components mag extension for this sand-colored beauty of a shotgun
