Langdon Tactical Technology Goes 12 Gauge: LTT 1301 Tactical Shotgun

Langdon Tactical Technology has entered the shotgun game in a big way. They took the Beretta 1301 Tactical and gave it a makeover!

Known as the “LTT 1301 Tactical Shotgun,” this 12 gauge scattergun keeps the fast, reliable and soft-shooting action of the Beretta but adds performance components to hold more rounds and enhance modularity.

Ernest Langdon is famous for turning Beretta handguns into high-performance shooting machines. He has now turned his attention to the company’s shotguns. There is nothing wrong with the Beretta 1301, but it is dead basic.

I have worked with the Beretta 1301 in shotgun classes. They are turning up in police departments across the country. Out of the box, the Beretta 1301 Tactical has a good trigger, quick cycling, and extended controls. Bad news, holds only five rounds with limited sling and light-mounting options.

On the LTT 1301, magazine tube capacity is increased to seven rounds with a clamped and flush-fitting extension. The improved M-LOC handguard has multiple points for flashlights and sling mounts. The stock also makes short-stocking easier through improved ergonomics, including length-of-pull adjustment.

A subtle but very real problem is the law. All imported guns are subject to 922(r) restrictions, that is why capacity was limited to just 5 rounds. Adding an extension tube alone could be a felony unless enough other US-made parts are added. LTT has done the homework for you. The LTT 1301 is street legal and pretty.

    Ok, it looks great ! ( might be hvy , but for 12 ga semi – that is probably even less recoil ) . I love John Wick too, but $1600 ? I can buy a Rem 1100 & outfit it similarly for Half that , & an 870 pump for 1/3rd that price. Which i have , and it hold 8 rds. Can swap barrels , remove the ext. Tube & take it hunting. Oh, and it’s lightweight.
