Southpaw here. Converts very easily for left handed use.

I'm interested in one of these, but would like to put a pistol-gripped stock on it.

Does anyone know who all makes stocks that fit these?

I know Choate makes a 1201 stock.

I've also read that some Benelli M1 stocks will fit, but may require modification. Can anyone confirm this? What kind of modification would be needed?

Would the Mesa Tactical Urbino stock for the Benelli M1 fit?

Anyone else make a 1201-compatible stock?

Also, what about replacement parts and aftermarket parts? Are other Benelli M1 parts compatible? Replacement safeties/bolt releases/charging handles? What about replacement springs? Front sights?

M1 pistol grip stock will work.

I have the Urbino stock for the M1 on my 1201. The top edge juts out slightly, but not anywhere near my cheek, so I am not concerned. Love the shorter LOP, even with the LimbSaver installed.

Did you have to modify anything, or was it a drop-in fit?

Do you mind posting some photos?

Regarding the top edge "jutting out", do you think it's something that could easily be sanded/Dremeled down for a flush fit?

I've made no modifications to the stock. See for yourself:

Oh, that's hardly noticeable, and probably not worth messing with to try and make it flush.

Thanks!

M1 Charging handles work with the 1201

I've read the same thing about the charging handles. Apparently, M1 aftermarket charging handles drop in to the 1201FP.

I've also read that safeties might be compatible, but nothing confirmed, and no mention of specifics.

I'm going to try putting a M1 oversized safety on my 1201FP. I'll let you know if it works.

That is true. I have the over-sized charging handle and safety from Dave's Metalworks on mine.

The charging handle pulls right out, pop in the new one. Done.

I don’t have any pics available but on my last 1201FP I used the Dave’s Metal Works Charging Handle on both the Benelli M1S90 and the Beretta 1201FP. My wife has noticed my interest in this deal and offered to buy me one. If all goes well and I get one of these I’ll be getting the Dave’s Metal Works CH again.

My 1201FP is scheduled to be delivered on Monday, and I already have some accessories inbound for it:

-Mesa Tactical Urbino pistol-grip stock with Limbsaver recoil pad
-Nordic Components extended charging handle
-Taran Tactical extended safety

The shotgun and all accessories cost just under $500 shipped total.

I'll get some pics posted next week, once everything arrives and gets installed.

And once I get my hands on it, I'm going to try to figure out a good way to mount a light too.

Which one fits? The 1301 or M4? Or do they make one for the 1201?

Thanks

The Benelli M1/M2 model fits. Available with or without a cheek riser.

No Riser: https://www.midwayusa.com/prod...auge-synthetic-black
Riser: https://www.midwayusa.com/prod...auge-synthetic-black

(I got the version with the riser just in case, since my 1201FP has the taller ghost ring sights. And if it's not needed, the riser can just be left off.)

The Beretta 1301 and Benelli M4 use a different (gas) operating mechanism, and their stocks aren't compatible with the inertia-driven 1201 and M1/M2.

There's no Urbino model specifically for the 1201. Choate is the only one who makes a 1201-specific pistol-gripped stock.

If anyone is thinking of buying one of these, they can be had a lot cheaper from Mounts Plus if you use the code "TRYMSP":

I was telling my brother about these Berettas and my 74 year old father perked up and got interested. I ended up helping him get his ordered. Then my wife was paying attention and said “your birthday is coming, would you rather have a case of ammo or the Beretta?” I also have one coming.
