New for 2016, Mesa Tactical has made its LEO Telescoping Stock adapter and pistol grip system available for the Beretta 1301 semiautomatic shotgun.
The versatile LEO Telescoping Stock system can be fitted with a standard AR-15 grip and telescoping stock, which enables tactical operators to instantly adjust the length of pull of the telescoping stock in order to accommodate differences in individual body sizes, or when wearing body armor, without compromising the safest shooting position.
Since its introduction in 2014, the 1301 Tactical is a semiautomatic shotgun specifically designed to meet the needs of tactical shooters and law enforcement professionals. Mesa Tactical’s LEO stock system incorporates those features most frequently asked for by law enforcement and other professional operators who now have a more streamlined solution for adding a telescoping stock and pistol grip to their Beretta 1301 shotguns.
The concept behind the LEO Telescoping Stock system is simple: the shotgun’s factory stock is replaced by an adapter, to which standard AR-15 grips and telescoping buttstocks can be reliably attached.
All of Mesa Tactical’s stock adapters are investment cast aircraft aluminum, which are then CNC machined before being powdercoated black with a tough, chemical resistant finish. LEO stock adapters provide a lower stock elevation allowing the use of iron sights or the front bead and incorporate an advanced sling attachment method, which accommodates a wide variety of optional sling styles.
The LEO Telescoping Stock adapter is available in two types of kits, adapter kits or complete stock kits. Mesa Tactical’s upgraded versions include a hydraulic recoil buffer, which replaces the standard receiver extension tube normally used with AR-15 style telescoping stock assemblies.
The recoil buffer is manufactured for Mesa Tactical by Crosshair Recoil Buffers. The Crosshair buffer is a recoil reducer designed for professional operators who require optimum accuracy and control. This adapter is available for a variety of today’s most popular shotgun models including the Remington 870, Mossberg 500, Mossberg 590, Maverick 88 pump-shotguns and the Beretta 1301 semi-automatic.

Mesa Tactical also manufactures other specialized stock and pistol grip systems, such as their High-tube telescoping stock and pistol grip kits for Remington and Mossberg tactical shotguns, which mimic the geometry of an AR-15/M-4 rifle with an elevated cheek weld and Picatinny rail for mounting optical sights at the correct height.
