I walked through gulf coast guns yesterday to kill some time. They had 2 1301’s and an AKSA S4 ( Benelli M4 clone). One thing I noticed was the M4 clone was MUCH smoother when cycling the action. It seemed like you could really feel a lot of machine marks in the Beretta. I am not saying the Turkish clone was just as good, just noting my experience. I have seen some remarks about the AKSA having a bolt face that was really soft and was replaced under warranty. The clone was $599. If it was $100 or so cheaper I would probably give it a try.
